Binge eating.

Monday, November 18, 2019

Does anyone else have trouble with emotional binge eating? I do and it's quite overwhelming at times. Yesterday was very difficult, but today is much better. I pray a lot to stay strong and not allow food to be an emotional crutch. I also try to keep healthy snacks, such as fresh veggies on hand if I'm struggling. Please add comments and let me know if you struggle too.

    It is a reoccurring problem that I have. When life deals me a blow, food is usually my go to as I have already given ups caffeine, tobacco, and pills. It is something I have to work on always. If I let my guard down, I find myself turning to food. Like you, I now try and keep only healthy things on hand at home.

    Eating is what we do for emotion...good and bad. We want to find something to do other than food to celebrate or deal with discouragement.

    I had more trouble before. I try to get a taste of food I like. Before I would gorge myself. Variety is the spice of life.

    I had a problem years ago but found a doctor who put me on Prozac and I saw a therapist. I should have gotten a divorce, but I had five children then and it was something I should have done 6 months after I had gotten married at 19 when he first told me he wanted a divorce. (Oh, what would people say? and then I went to see the Preacher and he told me "go home and keep your mouth shut and do what he wants, as he has to answer to God, but you don't as you are to "obey.")
    Yes, emotionally eating is just that from emotions A stay-at-home mom has no power since she is dependent on the man, so it is an extremely stressful place to be.
