I was an emotional eater. It all started when I broke up with my first love about 5 years ago. After the broke up I felt that eating healed my wounds. I bought a whole bag of junks and would finish them within an hour. I would sneak into my housemates' rooms to steal food. I would eat in silence in the middle of the night. All that just made me feel so tired, shameful and disgusted with myself.
I read a lot of self help books and begin to learn to follow my instincts; to eat only when I am hungry. I am still learning to improve the situation but I believe I am recovering from emotional eating. I hope everyone who are suffering from emotional eating or who have recovered will share their experiences here !
