I have a problem with emotional eating.
There I said it. I admitted it. I’ve been in a funk for the past few days and at first I wasn’t understanding why. In the last 11 years I’ve never forgotten February 14th. Not for Valentines day, but that is the day I lost my grandmother in 2001. My grandma and I were really close and I get emotional every year when I think about what i wish she was able to see me accomplish and share with me.
Yesterday, I got a call that my daughter was finally accepted into an early head start program that I have been trying to get her into and I had so much to do that I completely forgot about yesterday. So I’ve been on a 3 day binge eating horribly. I feel guilty and i know I need to get it back together
I can make a ton of excuses about this and not do anything about it….but I’m not going to. Excuses are excuses and they do not excuse the fact that I have not stuck to the commitment i was making to myself. Something will always happen in life to make me upset or disappointed or sad….that is not an excuse to overeat and eat like a pig. So I will be getting back together….thanks to everyone that has shown encouragement I appreciate it.
