Why am I such an Emotional Eater?
Thursday, August 27, 2009
So, today was the just the worst day ever! Work was so crazy and irritating, then I get home and I have to spend 3 hours clearing out a closet so that plumbers can get to a leaky pipe in my bathroom! And all I want to do, all day.... is eat! Why is is that when I am stressed out, angry, sad, worried or scared I want to eat a bag of doritos and a pint of ice cream? I wish there was a way to change that about myself. I want to be one of those girls who loses her appetite when she's upset... not someone who develops the appetite of a lumberjack.
Honestly, the only thing that kept me from totally binging today was the fact that I really want to track all my food, and I don't want people to see that I pigged out! So, thanks to Spark People I stayed under my calorie range. And although I am still worried and irritated... at least I don't feel guilty for overeating! And I blogged for the first time, and I think it helped.
