Eating my feelings away

Thursday, February 25, 2016

I have not lost any more weight. I have not tracked what I've been eating. I'm back on with my hate-love relationship with food. I don't eat during the day at all until dinner time, then have snacks and a meal back to back until bed time. Tonight I've been awake the entire night and started binging, a bowl of cereal, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, brown rice and broccoli chicken, and a large tangerine to top it off. I'm full beyond belief and still have a lingering craving for something sweet. I have binged before, but it's not normal for me to feel so out of control. I'm trying to figure out what is causing me to feel like hurting myself in this way with food. I realized a few days ago that I'm going through early menopause and that has me on tilt because I wanted to have more kids. Everything happens for a reason, I need to be grateful for my boy and girl. I have to keep going, be a good mother and wife, be good to myself by not abusing my body and take it one day at a time.

    I was pleased to hear that it was brown rice and broccoli - my binges are always cream cakes and copious amounts of red wine!!

    You have had a wee plateau, time to regroup and hit the gym again. We can do this x. emoticon

    I'm sorry you are going through tough times. Can you drink a large glass of water before and after each snack, you might be too full to eat more, and then whip out your journal and discover why you feel like eating in that moment. Good luck!

    I've been where you are now. And sometimes yes I still have to stop myself from starting on a binge. So far I've not given in..I reach for a water and my study bible to take my mind off food. I'm glad you shared your feelings..prayers coming your way

    Thank you for being brave enough to share this. I am in early menopause also and it can reek havoc on your psyche. Just take it one day at a time and remember to breath. I have the same issue. It's hard to tell the difference between hungry and tired

    Writing it down, sharing your story is a huge step in the right direction! Being honest with ourselves is sometimes the hardest part. Be proud of this honesty and work on the binging. You can do it!
