Emotional Roller Coaster

Sunday, March 16, 2008

So I seem to be a emotional eater...My stress levels have been truly tested these past few months and even after gastric by-pass surgery I have seemed to hit a platue. I am becoming more and more aware of what is going into my mouth as I feel my nerves spiral out of control. It is not like they are awful choices but something has got to give. Carbohydrates are not my friend they are a enemy but when the stress over comes you that handful of wheat thins can be a comfort. How weird is that? Why is it that we as people find comfort in the strangest things? I hope that I can keep my self on a better train of thought and refer back to this blog and continue with others that will help me become even more aware and in turn help me make better choices and find better things to help cope with my emotions & stress.

    it's hard to grab the water bottle or go for a walk when food is a comfort. I hear ya. Journaling works for me and screaming out for help to my online Sparkers. Hang in there..

    It will get better. Give it some time.
    You are learning a new skill, and the same with anything ( like the piano keyboard and I) it takes time.
    You wrote it already " I am becoming more and more aware"
    Excellent first step.
