One of the hardest things in life is avoiding the pitfalls of emotional eating. It's just how many of us cope, how we manage, the fun thing we can do for ourselves. Giving up sugar and giving up breads means just dealing with it. It's been my number one reason for failing. Whenever something goes wrong in my relationship, I've had a hard day at work, the weekend comes, there's a party and I just want to have fun, eating is my power.
It still is.
I just eat differently.
I reach for my yummy fruit/cottage cheese/yogurt salad
And I eat a lot.
But in the morning, no guilt, no set backs
No self loathing
Be committed. You don't eat sugar. Period. You don't eat breads. Period. You love yourself too much to slow down all the progress you have made. You love that "thinner" feeling in the morning when you've awakened and you just know you've lost weight. You love not feeling sick after eating, being free to eat exactly how much and what you want. And no matter WHAT it is that's bothering you or egging you on,
This too shall pass
And when it does, you will still be unstoppable, you will have weathered the storm, you will be stronger and unhindered knowing you haven't fallen into the pit again.
This time, you have triumphed!!
Go for a walk, go for a drive, take a nap, talk to a friend, go shopping!! Plan a trip!
