It's hard, but if you can get yourself to start some form of exercise, it will make you feel better. I've experienced this a lot. When I feel tired and there is no energy, exercise will give you energy. It is counterintuitive, but it's really true. Alternatively, when I feel like this I take a long hot shower! Seems to recalibrate and it feels great, especially in the winter when I tend to feel cold all day no matter what I do lol.

HSNEAKINS,
your first post was pretty short, so I tried to read into it what I could.

A lot of people are emotional eaters. I have to say that I'm not one of those, but I do have other "issues" so I'm sensitive to things. A number of years ago I had a brain tumour, and had surgery, and survived (obviously). But I came out a slightly different person.

My emotions are different, they bubble up more easily. My memory is poorer, and I have to write things down more than before, like lists of things to do for the next day. I have a wall planner with dry erase markers for the weeks and months ahead.

I seem pretty normal on the surface (at least I think I do emoticon). So we all have our issues. The more you post, the more we connect and maybe can help figure something out.

I'm sending you more positive wishes.
- James

Thanks all. James, I appreciate the thought-provoking questions about why I would eat something that makes me feel bad, in order to feel better! I think there's a lot to unpack there.

HSNEAKINS,

From my own years of yo yo dieting, I've found this to be true,"If you eat crap, you feel like crap".

If you slowly incorporate healthier foods into your diet, you'll start to feel better. Even increasing the amount of water you drink will help too. If you ate a few too many sugary treats (Didn't we all?), then drinking more water will help to flush your system.

You know you want to make a change and that's what counts. You can't change the past. But you can influence and change the future. You ate the treats. You log the treats. You move ON.

Remember, you are not a bad person or an unhealthy one because you ate a little too much during the holidays. You just start slowly to give your body time to ease back into healthier eating habits.

Take baby steps, literally and figuratively.

Change your regime gradually and get into healthier eating with more fruit/veges, quality carbs (including wholegrains), healthy fats and lean protein, and eat less processed stuff.

I have some questions back for you. If you know that eating too much sugar and other stuff made you feel uncomfortable and bloated, and that has put you in a bad space, then how can eating more sugar and stuff make you feel better?

Is there something else going on for which sugar and other food was a reward, or a way to forget something else?

I don't know, I'm just throwing things out there. How is food connected to your unhappy space?

I do send you positive wishes!

2017 was a good year in many ways, but a stressful one. I finished the year with a lot of overeating including plenty of sugar. I know that a few weeks of healthy eating is all I need, but I'm just feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and down right now. How do you deal when you're in a space like this?
