Emotional Eating

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I found out a close friend of mine literally left the state and didn't tell me. not a good bye or anything and i had to find it out from her boyfriend. my feelings were hurt and it made me realize that the friendship wasn't as strong as i thought. we grew up together...had children around the same time. its just hard

I came to realize in the following week that I am an emotional eater. which sucks, considering im 6 months post op on a gastric-bi-pass. emotional eating literally hurts me! I reeled my eating in, and started fresh the next day. I wish her well. But for the first time in my life I am walking away from the things that hurt me. I am putting me first. I will miss her, but I wont destroy myself, or the progress i have made.

    Wow, what a disrespectful way to have been treated. I'm sorry you had to go through that.

    However, discovering you're an emotional eater is a key element to success at learning how to live your life with the crutch of food addiction, so congratulations for having reached such an important self-understanding.

    And best of success to you every step of your journey back to great health

Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and lurk in the background, (but don't leave and don't do too much damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.

    You can do this!!
