This Sparked Me!

I am notorious for drowning my sorrows, anger, frustration, glee, elation, and pretty much every other emotion in a bag of potato chips, ice cream or donuts. The thing that has helped me to curb my emotional eating is venting on my SP blog. Usually after I vent it all gets out of my system and I feel a little better. Plus, my SparkFriends will usually comment and make me realize that cheesecake isn't going to make my horrible/wonderful/aggravati
day better, it will just make me feel worse.

    I have a big problem with emotional eating and I am realizing that I have to connect with some people who are dealing with the same problems and I won't feel so alone.

    I agree wholeheartedly ! I am a binger, too. This is the main reason for my weight gain. I exercise & eat right , otherwise.
Blogging about my feelings, what is really causing me to go for that bag of chips helps to start seeing the why so I can stop repeating the same action.
