Counselor Troi Speaks on Emotional Eating

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Counselor: Captain, you wanted to see me?
Captain: No, Counselor, I did not, but I am advised by the Spark Team to address possible emotional eating issues of the crew in the Ship's Blog, er Log. I did not know what to say.
Counselor: I see. And do you think there might be such issues on the ship?
Captain: I prefer to think not.
Counselor: I see. And why, Captain, do you think that? Are you afraid to face such
a deeply psychological issue? Does it reflect on your leadership perhaps, if the crew is eating out of some emotional rather than nutritional need? Do you feel the lines of communication may not be as open as they could be among the ship's officers and crew members?
Captain: hummmph.
Counselor: I'm sorry. What was that? I am sensing some anxiety, some stress. Perhaps you would like to give this some thought, and arrange a time to talk again?
Captain: Very well. I will talk to you later. I'll let you know when I am ready.
Counselor: I will be eating an entire 440 calorie chocolate bar in my office later. We can talk then if you like.

    Always, clever, clever, clever! Emotional eating is something we are all guilty of and that's a very creative way to put that. I've been missing your witty posts and hope things are going just fantastic for you! Have a great Thanksgiving and hope its filled with lots of good times with family and of course food!!

    Darling, you have always loved your chocolate (just like your father!) but it has come to my attention that you have been eating to make yourself feel better. If this is just an excuse to increase your workout time with that beautiful Klingon then I completely understand but I still think you would feel more satisfied if you ate more Mantickian paté. I mean, you don't see your friend, Beverly, starving herself on vegetarian food, now do you? And stop eating such small bites of can you enjoy your food when barely any of it makes it onto your spoon? I only say this because I worry about you. Bad enough, you travel lightyears away from home for years at a time as if you didn't want to spend time with your dear mother...But truly, I never hear from you and I worry about your future on that ship. And no wonder you feel anxious, you've been lusting after the same man for years now. Its time you realized that Commander Riker is too busy playing the galactic field to start a family with you. He's a good one but let him ...ripen while you enjoy other males of the galaxy.

    And contact your mother every now and then or I'll have to ask that yummy Captain of yours for an update. I love you, dear!

    Hmmm. You have given me much to wrap my brain around. Any suggestions of things for the counselor to do instead of eating the bar? I actually break off a small piece, ziplock the rest and stick it in a drawer, then leave the kitchen before I eat what I've got. It makes it harder to go back to the rest. Just a thought. IDK.
