Eating Your Feelings

Do you struggle to lose weight? If so, have you ever wondered why? 

I’m no psychologist, but I can tell you that for me, the weight I have been carrying around is purely emotional. It’s a form of self punishment. Every time I hit the first milestone of weight loss, I would just stop dieting with no rhyme or reason why. It was self sabotage, to prevent myself from hitting my target weight and therefore preventing myself from having the joy and satisfaction of doing so.

But why?

It’s simple – I was compensating for other areas of my life, with food. The moment I woke up from my face-stuffing-food-coma I could control it. I no longer aimlessly and thoughtlessly shove chocolate down my face, or crave that ‘full’ feeling.

If you are battling weight loss and suffer a lack of motivation, maybe there is something underlying within you that’s holding you back? After all, how can you really move forward when you are holding on to the past?
