Are Your Feelings Causing Your Weight Gain?
The most valuable knowledge a therapist gave me was ‘feelings won’t hurt you.’ I hadn’t ever considered this. Ten years ago I was too busy pushing down any uncomfortable feeling with food. I had gained 25 pounds over a 3-year period by eating lots of desserts, drinking soda and consuming processed carbs (my favorite was cheesy, garlic bread).
So if feelings won’t actually hurt me, why was I spending so much time repressing my feelings with food? This was the beginning of a change for me. Feel my feelings.
Many people are looking to food for a solution. I invite you to invest 3 minutes and watch this 3-minute clip on emotional eating.
