That I am an emotional eater!

The last few days i've been going through some heavy stuff in life and even when i'm not hungry all I want to do is sit and eat. Junk food is of course what I want but doesn't matter what the food is, I just want to eat. I've showed massive self restraint, but I guess I never realised that certain feelings make me want to eat.

If something really bad happens (eg, when my dog died end of last year) I didn't eat for almost 2 days - I couldn't. But other things like general feelings of depression, frustration etc, I want to eat!

I guess the first step is noticing when i'm eating through emotions, and now I know.
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!
