What do you use to replace food?
Sunday, November 14, 2010
I had the realization that when we get over one bad habit or coping strategy, we replace it with something else. Sometimes it's glaringly obvious, sometimes it's not. I'll go out on a limb and say that a lot of my SPark family use food for more than just nutrition.
I want to replace my eating coping mechanism, but I think I need something new that's positive. Unfortunately, I feel boxed in to a corner. My medical issues have me severely limited with everything - physically and emotionally and completely deprived of energy. I would love to go out and meet people, find some things I TRULY enjoy, besides stuffing my face. It's kind of like rebounding from a relationship. You've got to know there's something else good out there to get moving forward again and leave the ex behind you.
So, what do you use to replace food?? I'm open to all suggestions, even if I can't do them right now. I'm curious what people have discovered.
