Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend I did - I have some amazing friends in my life and I feel very blessed today.
My topic today is emotional eating. I have been struggling with this for the past few weeks (mostly due to the hospital stay and some other issues in my life right now) and I am just stuck doing it. This has always been an issue for me and something I struggle with on a day to day basis. Not following through with going to the gym and just not caring at this point is where I find myself at this time. What can I do? What is causing this? I have been trying to re motivate myself and in my last post I did say I was I going to take this weekend and refocus on me but once again I did not follow through. A lot of people I know just don't understand how this is an issue and I try and explain to them that food is my emotional outlet that it makes me feel better the more I eat the more I can bury my feelings and not have to face what is in front of me. People always ask me how do you do it (weight loss) and what is the hardest part? How do I do it I get up off my *ss and just do it and the hardest part is the eating - changing my eating habits has always been the part that I really had to work on. When you are used to one thing and then you try and change it you have so many emotions going through your mind and so many feelings about the situation that you drive yourself crazy thinking about it over and over again. I find that if I have other things to focus on (me) that it can be easier to control. I am hoping in the next few weeks I can find the courage to get back on my routine and not let all of my goals I have met be for nothing and can choose to be who I really am inside.
What do you do when you fall back into an old habit?
