Fat Girl Confession # 7


I have to confess….


I can’t seem to regain control over my poor eating habits.  Now I don’t think that I eat bad foods on a whole.  It comes down to the things that I chose to snack on when I get hungry in between meals.  Now my doctor told me that I need to eat every 2-3 hours but the problem is choosing the rights foods to snack on.  I really am struggling to lose more weight because apparently my body has hit somewhat of a plateau so I am trying to step up my workout by adding a day so now instead of going to the gym five times a week I go 6 times now.  But the problem is not my commitment to my workout it is my eating habits.  It’s more so along the lines of my eating according to my emotions.  It seems like food has always been that constant for me.  It has never let me down, it has never abandoned me, never mistreated me, and at times it has been my very best of friends.  So of all the relationships I have been in, food has been the longest one running.  Now I just need to break up with food (so to speak).  Now obviously I know that I can’t stop eating altogether (tried that-didn’t work) but somehow I have to stop turning to food, or at least the wrong types of food, every time I get in a mood.  That is my issue and I have to get a handle on it.  I suppose fixing some of the emotional things might help but how can a person possibly fix the everyday stresses that life throws at you just like that?  I know that I need to get a handle on it and I know that I will.  Now the question is how long will it take for me to get over my habit of emotional eating and how much of an effect will that have on my weight loss journey?  Until next time… snack wisely.
