I almost made it through the day yesterday without eating emotionally.
I had a really trying afternoon and was offered candy but did pass on it because I knew I would only eat it because I was upset. I felt some sense of success but was still fairly frazzled.
However, last night, I ended up alone watching the baby; everyone else was either not feeling well or in crabby moods. Loneliness/fatigue are definitely major trigger emotions for me. I am a little on the fence about what happened; I was hungry and chose to eat sweets to make myself feel better. So, sort of an emotional eating moment but I was actually hungry. Hm. I did feel better after eating it but also some guilt.
I am not sure whether I am giving myself too hard a time. I definitely thinking that eating when I am not hungry is not a good thing. As Christie discussed this morning, this is kind of like putting food in the garbage can, a total waste. However, eating something I enjoy when I'm hungry but that I know will make me feel better emotionally....hmm.
