Here is a link to a great emotional eating resource here on SparkPeople:

www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/stage_diet_str
ategies.asp?diet_stage=3&strategy_num=

From that page, you will see links to other articles on the right hand side that you may find helpful.

Keep writing your thoughts out. It really helps to get to the root of emotional eating.

Sometimes I eat emotionally. Sometimes I am bored so I eat for no reason.

Goodmorning Sparkers! emoticon

So I decided to do my "Diet Personality Profiler" on the site, and after finishing it I was labeled firstly a "Portion Distortioner" and next an "Emotional Eater". I actually think I'm more of an emotional eater, I eat just to fill a void in me. I eat because I'm happy, because I'm sad, because I could care LESS who cares, because I don't care.

But then again, I think my eye is definetly skewed when it comes to portion sizes. I remember, a few weeks ago... I nearly polished off an ENTIRE bag of Ritz "Dairyland Cheddar" crackers - I think there are 7 servings in it. This was after having breakfast a few hours before that, and AFTER the crackers... I made a rootbeer float (all this before 11am!). I didn't feel stuffed, I felt content like a fat Buddha, lol.

In hindsight, I think to myself, "Geeze... Sarah, that's a bit overboard." - and I'm sure that anyone else would agree. I have a love of food, doesn't have to be good food (tasty, delicious, satiating, etc.), it just has to be FOOD. I'll eat plain cottage cheese, spoons of peanut butter, a can of beans for Pete's sake JUST to feel FULL. This isn't normal.

I really need to cut ties with my "Emotional-Distortion" with food. I need to look to food for nourishment, not boredom killer, emotional punching bag, punishment, or a celebratory accomplishment. I need to take a good hard look at what I am consuming on a daily basis. I've made a pledge to log ALL my food per day. Baby steps!
