I hope it helps you to speak up. It does me. Sometimes that urge to eat seems overwhelming. I can get it watching TV and sometimes I leave the room during the commercials. Being around food is a trigger for me. I am very suggestible with food. Some foods I have to remind myself are for the rest of my family and I trade those in for peace of mind. It really is a swap off for me. It goes back to that saying.."Nothing tastes as good as serenity feels." It also helps me to call someone before I eat. We can often figure out together what is going on with me when I can't do it alone. We can restart our day at any time. I hope you can let go of what you have already eaten and go find something you want to do that feels good. Glad you spoke up. You helped me.
SOTM121097 I know what you mean yesterday I craved fried chicken about 3 time's each time I was hungry so ate the food that I should and it went away. I to use these message board's to curve the desire's. Do what work's!!!! Faith
At the moment I'm getting that feeling of anxiety while packing up my son and hubby's lunch. I was a bit hungry, but the moment I started packing the lunch I just felt the need to eat something and felt like my hunger level shot from 1 -10 in 5 min.
I was thinking of all these things I could eat. This sets off an alarm for me. Normally I don't stop myself in that moment. I said I planned on sitting for 15 min with the feeling and trying to journal and work out my feelings. For the moment I'm using this post as my journal. I feel like when I'm around a lot of food that I like I feel the desire to eat it. Hubby came home late and picked up pizza, I'm dying for some and I don't know why? I also picked on some lunch meat and two chips while packing up lunch.
I know something might be bothering me, but I don't feel that it is. I just was sitting here relaxed and calm not thinking of eating just yet, but noticing that I was getting hungry.
