Emotional Eater

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

I never labeled myself an emotional eater. I have very little emotion let alone allow it to control my eating. I just plain love food and overeat to obsession sometimes.

Well My ex mother in law took very ill this last week She had a liver transplant 14 yrs ago. She has always had bouts of fever that come and go in 48 hrs no none causes. Well this time she did not snapp out of it. She was life flighted to Chicago University medical Sunday night.
She is stable and they are still running tests.

Even though she is gaining ground I am so worried for her. Food is just not a thought. I am making myself eat at least once a day. No it is not real healthy fair.

But is is funny how all of a sudden at almost 50 I have realized I do have an emotion that does
effect my eating. This entire journey is really more than just a food and movement change. This is really and awakening and meeting of ones self.

    I'm really sorry to hear about yourex- mother-in-law, I really hope that she regains her health and they find out what is causing these problems that she is having. As for being a stress eater I fully understand that one as I am also a stress/emotional eater. Take one day at a time and please let us know how your ex MIL is doing.

    I do understand I am a emotional eater I didn't realize it for a long time I thought I just eat I understand now that the reason I eat is for comfort that makes me sad to think about but its true and maybe saying it to someone else will help me understand how real the struggle is. Keep up the fight this is your life I type that statement and it made me realize yes this is my life and I control it take care of you.
