Happy New Years to you and yours. I have heard it time and again about emotional eaters eating to fill a void of some sort…do you know what the void is all about. I know I have a huge problems with emotional eating and binging to the extreme, but it is such a mind fuck to sit here and run myself in circles trying to figure out the void.
How much time do I dedicate to figuring this out. I have spent many years speaking to my psychologist and psychiatrist…so I know and admit that I have problems in more than a few areas, but I can’t pinpoint triggers for my actions most of the time.
It is a new year and I am trying to let go of the shackles that have held me often too tightly and move forward into 2015 knowing that I am going to stumble more than once trying to get healthy, but that I also shouldn’t pick on myself because of the stumbles.
Here are my clear triggers:
Not speaking my mind
Dealing with family
My living environment
Stress from work
Anxiety about the unknown
For some of these areas there are clear things that I can do, but easier said than done when dealing with my many family members. I hope that 2015 is a year of changes for me as I deal with my health and try to make better choices…not perfect choices, but each day make better choices than I made the day before.
