I am an emotional eater, when I am in a binge mood. I now realize that I can stop and think okay what am I upset about, or why am I feeling bad about myself?
Once I do that I can step away from the food, and feel really good and positive about myself. I didn't binge and I realize another trigger that I can watch for in the future.
This also works for meal choices, am I really hungry or is it just that time of day?
This very empowering to me.
