Well, it was yesterday. I won’t list what all I ate – but almost none of it was healthy. And it seems I was eating constantly.
And this morning, it hit me – stress eating. Pure, unadulterated stress eating. The stress is personal so I won’t get into it here. I sure wish I could recognize this pattern BEFORE it takes off instead of after.
I’ve also been thinking about going back to My Food Diary. I don’t know why – but it’s definitely been in the back of my mind. Yeah, I do know why. I’m feeling lost and a bit frantic. Scared even. My Food Diary, while not effective for me, is familiar and in some ways comforting. But I am now, as I type, remembering why I left: so many people searching for magic bullets, so many fad diets, etc. Yeah – I don’t need that.
I guess I need to create my own ‘comfort space.” And remember to go to it!
