I haven’t tackled it yet, but I need too. I’ve heard about it before and yet I ignored it and thought that just couldn’t be me, yet it is. I am a self professed emotional eater. I eat if I’m happy; I eat if I’m sad; and I eat if I’m bored. It’s as if I consider food a friend who wants to celebrate with me, comfort me, or add some type of excitement to my life. Although it appears that food is filling a void, it really is causing more trouble. When I eat for comfort, in the end I am not comforted at all. Instead I’m disappointed that I ate not because I was hungry, but for some other reason that I shouldn’t be eating. The trick is finding a way to overcome this emotional eating, which I'm still searching for.
