Emotional Eating

Friday, November 18, 2011

Yesterday was a bad day for me. I chose not to go to the gym before work and have an extra hour and a half in bed. I chose not to eat one of the packet soups or noodles that I keep in my desk for lunch, but to go to the sandwich shop opposite work and buy a chicken blt. I chose to have Burger King for my tea. I then chose to eat three packets of Wotsits, one after the other, without stopping in between bags.

I’m not going to make any excuses for my behaviour. I eat to make myself feel better. I know I will feel better while I’m eating. I know I’ll feel worse afterwards.

I made bad choices yesterday. I need to make better choices. I’m in the middle of learning how to do this. I know I’ll get there.

    It is a very tricky balancing act. When I think about how I gained the weight I get depressed and want to eat. When I feel bad I don't want to exercise. When I don't exercise I feel bad and want to eat. A vicious circle. I am just now learning about emotional eating and it can be overwhelming. I agree that today is a new day and looking back won't really help moving forward.

    We all have those days. From one emotional eater to another. Today is a new day, make the best of it. Look for ways to channel the energy that leads to emotional eating. emoticon

    omg we all have days like that, the other day i had like 3 girl scout cookies and then drank a soda and at the end of the day i was like "what the heck is my problem" this will not be the last disappointing day, just hop back on the healthy routine and then these days will slowly get less and less. don't stress or guilt yourself too much. have a good weekend

    We control our destiny, as we are the choices we make. Good or bad, look for the lesson, and learn it well, as it is the building block on which you place your next brick.

    It can be a steep learning curve some days. Today is a new day; you can only go forward from here! emoticon
