I have a problem.
Now, fixing the problem is the hard part. I have a problem with emotional eating and it seems to be getting worse, or maybe I'm more aware of it. I have lost 40lbs and while I have been maintaining that (miraculously considering my up and down eating) the way I deal with my issues and food is not healthy.
When I'm stressed, I eat. When I'm bored, I eat. When I go out with the girls, I eat. I have been having a serious sweet and salty and carby tooth lately too, so it's not like I'm cramming my face with fruits and veggies. I seem to go up and down, half the week I listen to the angel on my shoulder and half the week I listen to the devil.
I really need to address this ASAP because although I've lost weight, this is about my health and this is not something I should be putting my body through.
I'm heading off to the library to get some books. I've been reading about a lot of people who are reading the Becks book so I'll try to find that and others that focus on overcoming emotional eating.
