Emotions Eating You

While we like to blame our weight on bad genes, a sedentary job, or love of food the truth is that many people who are overweight suffer from problems with emotional eating. Keeping a journal can also help you to combat these problems.


When you get a handle on your emotions and stop using food as a way to self-medicate, you’ll find that your weight loss is permanent – and even something you don’t have to think about anymore.


Keeping a journal of how you feel every time you eat can help you to see what triggers your problematic eating. Here are a few emotions you may uncover:


• Happiness

• Sadness

• Loneliness

• Frustration

• Boredom

• Anxiety

• Stress

• Anger

• Love


In the end, just about any emotion can lead you down the path of overeating. Keeping a journal can also help you to stay mindful about how full you feel. Many people eat until they feel like they are going to pop.


The result is a feeling of misery, indigestion, and weight gain. You may find yourself saying that you’ll never make yourself feel that way again. Then, something triggers you to eat again and you repeat the pattern.


Instead, it’s good to eat until you feel satisfied. You won’t feel stuffed or full. You simply won’t feel that your stomach is hungry anymore. It takes a lot of practice to learn how to eat in this healthy way if you’re used to binging.


A journal can also help you to write about your feelings and get to the bottom of what’s causing your food addiction issues. Perhaps you have had some experiences that have led you down the path of emotional eating. Journaling can help you to become proactive and deal with your problem.


Using the Past to Propel You Forward


Everyone experiences hard times now and then. When it comes to dieting, you’re bound to have times when you experience great success and then times you feel like a failure. Being able to look back on good experiences can help you to take those tools and get you back on track.


When you don’t write things down, it’s hard to remember exactly how you solved a problem, how you felt when you lost weight, what tricks helped you to stick to the program, and what motivated you to start the hCG diet in the first place.


A journal is a record of your history. It can record your highs and lows. It will be a volume you can go back to when you need to seek encouragement from none other than yourself. It can also be a tool you use to help others when they need it.
