But that's all just stuff. When I overeat over emotions I could always find something else to do it with. IF I "see" that something is bothering me. I read somewhere that when you overeat it's your body letting you know something is wrong- something needs attention. So if you do "slip" look for the lesson. Sometimes that may take time to find like it did with me.
That first night when I knowingly made popcorn ( homemade the healthy way) I was watching TV, I had spent way too much time that afternoon doing that. Earlier when it was time for my daily " snack" I had trouble choosing between 2 items ( popcorn being one of them). I chose the fruit- but I really wanted both. So when I went wako 3 hrs later with a whole bowl all salted down I thought that was it.
I had such an uneasy emotional feeling after eating the popcorn I decided to Tapp it out. I couldn't seem to come up with anything on my own other than dealing with my shame for eating in the first place. But with a guided EFT CD was able to tap my way into a peaceful place to sleep.
The next morning when I was meditating it came to me "WHY". The day before my DH came in to sit beside me and almost passed out. I knew he was having these side effects from a medicine he's taking for HBP but hadn't actually seen it and it scared me. At the time I was on FB, stopped to see about him, but he waved me off- said he'd be fine and went back to bed. I continued a FB conversation I was having and let it go. But obviously I didn't let it go I just shoved it down. A very old, unhealthy response I thought I was through with. Guess not.
After realizing I had done this I first prayed about it and then I went to the weight loss forum I use and "talked" it out with someone there. Not a craving since then. I needed to see, accept and process my feelings to get off the roller coaster.
