EMOTIONAL EATER OR JUST PLAIN PIGGY...
Wednesday, September 09, 2015
I have had a problem that has been bothering me for a while. I keep trying to find articles and stories on the topic but there is not a lot out there. I saw a tv show that said this was a disease.
I believe I am an emotional eater. I can go all day and not eat at all. I work out, shop, visit people, friends, I crochet, do scrap booking and make jewelry to sell.
When I get home in the evenings I just can't seem to stop eating, even when I know I am filled to the brim. For some reason I keep eating until I just can't eat any more. Maybe this is why I don't get hungry during the day, but it bothers me that I can't control it.
Is there anyone else that has this problem? Why do I have this problem. I do not understand. I workout and for the most part try to follow a decent diet. I am no longer depressed. I am not bothered by my past... I've had therapy and confronted my abuser. I am happy with my life most of the time. I wish I had more money to do more of the things I need to do, and want to do, but it doesn't weigh heavy on my mind. I do not know why I have this problem during the night. I drink water all day, forty ounces at the Y before finishing my workout, and off and on throughout the day. Sometimes I am up every half hour or so taking potty breaks all night long, instead of sleeping, (like last night) but I had a very full belly and didn't need to eat until about 6pm. I have also noticed that when I eat lots of fruit I often feel the need to eat more. My coach said it may be the sugar in the fruit. I am STILL pre-diabetic, my sugar is under control. I average between 84-145 on a weekly basis. Since I have added snacks during the day, I don't have the low sugar spikes I used to have almost every day.
SO, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? WHY DO I KEEP EATING LIKE THAT? HELP!!!!!!!!!
