Shareable Weight Loss Quote

How true is that!

Apart from an apparent sugar addiction I have been an emotional eater. I have a lot of emotions so I did a lot of eating! Combine that with the sugar and you’ll get the picture of the result. Not pretty and not good for my health. Nor yours.

If you’re an emotional eater, you’ll totally understand this quote.

Instead of dealing with your emotions – happy, sad, bored, worried, excited, disappointed – by eating the wrong things or too much of something, why not change your habit.

It’s tough but it can be done.

You need to find the trigger for the emotion and then continually remind yourself to do a different thing to what you normally do.

So instead of reaching for the chocolate, strap on your sneakers and head out for a bit of exercise!

Me? I’m on it!

  1. Boy, ain’t that the truth! I know I’m one who eats when bored. Emotions, not so much. In fact, if I’m upset, the last thing I want to do is put anything in my stomach. But strapping on the sneaks and heading for the gym will always divert my attention and end the boredom. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I am a recovering bulimic who did the whole binge and purge thing when I was in my late teens/early twenties. It was a different sort of emotional eating than the one used in this quote, but yeah, emotional eating is not the answer no matter which way you look at it. It’s just a cover for something else that is going on with you in your life.

    And it is an extremely hard thing to get over that can cause permanent damage to your health if you aren’t careful.

    1. So true and I’m very glad to hear you have improved and continue to self-monitor your behaviour. I’ve found a blend of counselling and increasing self-awareness helps to understand my relationship to food and find better strategies. Thank you for your comment. Keep on improving 🙂

    1. We often mistake hunger signals and there are lots of research studies attempting to explain why. Best thing is to become more conscious of our own body and mind. Recognise mouth-hunger from real hunger. Thanks for your comment.

    1. The fact that we’re all different and thus there’s no one solution is why we have a multi- billion dollar industry around weight! Glad your body was able to process that sugar without consequence 🙂

  3. I so hear you – I am a stress eater, usually at work, where I have a desk job. I’ve tried sugarless gum to keep my mouth busy and food free, I’ve tried healthy snacks like apples (nice and crunchy),I’ve tried taking a break – which is hard when you are on a short deadline and just can’t leave your desk. I need a way to deal with this because it has become a major problem with me.

    1. I notice your choice of activity under stress involves eating. What if you switched that to incidental exercise? Press-ups against the wall, squats and other exercises can be done anywhere convenient (the lift, bathroom, hallway) and don’t need to take much time.

  4. Emotional eating. Yep, right there with you! Cheesecake is always the answer. Unless I’m attempting to decrease my already luscious posterior, in which case it’s a curse.

  5. What a great quote! I too am an emotional eater. I am trying to work towards healthier eating, but it doesn’t always work. Food is an easy source to go to when emotions are running high.
