What Are You Really Feeling?

This Sparked Me!

I am an emotional eater. However, if I stop myself before I reach for food and ask, "What am I really feeling?" The answer is seldom hunger. Usually I am bored, angry, sad, lonely, helpless, or even happy. "I deserve this" is a lie I tell myself because what I really deserve is to be healthy.

MORE INFORMATION:
Sometimes just naming the feeling and acknowledging it, without imposing additional guilt on myself for feeling it, is enough to help me put down the food.
