Yet, now with the stress becoming overwhelming and taking over my feelings I am now heading back down the stairs to see if I can find something to eat. It starts with my coffee, then oatmeal, the next thing I know, I am elbows deep in a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream. Where did this even come from?

Now, I feel guilt, more anxiety and the overwhelming feeling that I failed yet again. Well, also feeling bloated and upset that I am not looking like a IFBB pro, how do I get so out of control?

Can you relate?

This is emotional eating. It happens more than you may think. It isn’t about clearing out the fridge like Kirby with one breath in. It is when you find yourself eating for reasons other than satisfying your actual physical hunger.

I do not believe that it is solely our fault. Marketing for food companies constantly strive to build a connection between food and our emotions. We are promised an emotional benefit beyond the food itself which is closely linked to comfort, excitement, even belonging.

The Anxiety Starts To Take Over…

The anxiety starts to take over and I can feel this persistent nagging within in my belly. A flutter in my chest and my mind is feeling like it is running at Ludacris speed. I begin to pick at my nails, jump from social media app to social media app, stopping myself after a few minutes to try and focus so that I can write. I took a couple of hours off from work today. So that I could write a blog post and here I am looking up other things and wasting time.

Building with pressure in my chest!

I thought that was just a phrase that was hyped by media.

It provides a momentary sense of pleasure and satisfaction when you are not feeling the greatest. Yet, why are you not feeling well? Overeating has a numbing, softening effect on our unwanted feelings. Love Yourself. When your emotions go awry what are some things you can do to take care of yourself in a loving manner? I choose journaling. I write about how I am feeling and what may be causing these issues.

It is OK to feel sad, mad, depressed, scared, exhausted, etc. Welcome the feelings to flow through you. Do not try to shove them down and cover them like they do not exist. Approach them with kindness and love. Your body will begin to shift and understand that it is no longer distressed and needing to overeat. Bonus – through listening to your emotions, you are more likely to discover what is truly bothering you allowing you to create new ways to satisfy these cravings.

Take time to relax, spend time doing the things that energize you and make sure you are allowing yourself small pleasures throughout the day.

  • Do you eat more when you’re feeling stressed?
  • Do you eat when you’re not hungry or when you’re full?
  • Do you eat to feel better (to calm and soothe yourself when you’re sad, mad, bored, anxious, etc.)?
  • Do you reward yourself with food?
  • Do you regularly eat until you’ve stuffed yourself?
  • Does food make you feel safe? Do you feel like food is a friend?
  • Do you feel powerless or out of control around food?
