This helps. I like how those unwanted cravings are referred to 'The Beast.' Right now at this very moment, I'm craving something. I just ate, so there is no reason to let 'the beast' win. This article is great!
I have just demolished half a packet of biscuits through my emotions a few minutes before reading this - just too late! But cried when I read this - i'd be a supermodel (haha) if I could curb this emotional eating beastie! Thanks :D
This is a great article and really helps put a concrete spin on something so abstract as emotional eating. I actually just logged on to SP hoping to find something like this at this very moment, and I just learned, I effectively played the stalling game with my beast :) This is truly a fantastic article and it really, really helped me get through my latest temptation with the beast...thank you!!!
I have felt this beast inside too many times. I will do well and then all of a sudden here it comes telling me that one piece of cake or pie will be okay. I wind up eating 2. Then I feel guilty because I have let myself down and then I say I will not do this tommorow and sometimes I don't but then 2 days later the beast comes back and I have to start all over again.
I'm committing to home improvements. I'm planting a vegetabel garden and instead of hiring someone to plow up a spot for it I'm digging it with hand tools. This works off calories and helps me focus on something aside from the stress. I'm also planning to do some indoor work(painting and putting down tile) that will be good stimulation for body and mind.
Great Article!!! I find myself doing well all day and blowing it at the end of the day. I think it is due to needing to "blow off steam" and I have always used food to do that. I will try the tips and see how it works.
