It has been a bad day at work and your boss is starting to ride your last nerve. You hit the coffee bar and grab a doughnut too.
It is late and the kids are in bed; they were a real handful today. You find yourself in front of the freezer with your two best friends, Ben & Jerry.
Your husband is being especially inattentive and you already feel unattractive today, so you grab some sweets and finish off the kids’ dinner — and you aren’t even hungry.
This is emotional eating. It can become a self-destructive habit. So how can you stop when all you want to do is feel better — or, better yet, feel nothing?
Understand now that emotional eating is a symptom of something bigger: UNRESOLVED EMOTIONS. I know it sounds simple, and it really kind of is. When you resolve those feelings you are trying so desperately to ignore you will finally:
- Lose weight
- Eat healthy
- Have more energy
- Be in control of your out-of-control emotions
- Have healed and released pain and other drivers that have led to weight gain
- Be free to live the life you really want
