Comment on Beck Day 33
Saturday, January 21, 2017      13 comments

When it comes to emotional eating, I have found over and over that my biggest struggles are when I'm stressed AND I'm not handling my hunger well. If my nutrition is good I'm far less likely to fall in the trap of emotional eating. When I'm tryi... Read more
