I'm going to get real here. I'm by no means perfect especially at my nutrition. I struggle with emotional eating. Food has always been comforting to me and I aged, more bad habits around my emotions, were formed. Ever since starting BB programs (fitness and nutrition) I have been able to control it a lot more then I used to, but I do fall back into what is easy when emotions are running high. Today I read about some simple advice. Take 10 minutes before you eat to gather your thoughts and really think about why you are wanting to eat. Then CHOSE to work on the emotions and put away the food. I'm going to at least give it a shot 🙄 When I'm in that vulnerable state, I tend to eat super fast and the thoughts going through my head are excuses for why it's okay if I eat. Thoughts like, I deserve this, I've been good all day, I need my sugar, it's just a little bite, I don't care....I'm eating it anyway! I can tell you that it almost always leads to eating MORE then what I started with! Most of this happens at night. The next day I'm mad at myself and wipe the slate clean, often only to do the same thing that evening 😕 See the cycle? I have been able to control it at times, but when the stress level is high I fall back into it. NOT THIS TIME!! If you're an emotional eater and can relate to this in some way, would you be interested in being a part of a group where we can hold each other up and keep each other accountable? I know I need this and would love to have some support while trying to knock this down ❤️ Would you like to learn more? Click the link on my account and Chat with me. Make it a great day!
