This topic is real and far reaching. I've done it many, many times. Sometimes for an extended period of time. This week, it was for a couple of days. I was honest with myself, though. I entered the extras that were consumed into my daily log. I didn't like doing it and looking at it, but it is part of the process. My journey, and your journey, however that looks for you, well, they aren't easy journeys. We all have something going on. We look to things for comfort and satisfaction when we have emotions that we want to get away from at the moment. For me this week, I did the emotional consumption, but it didn't take away the emotions.
One of the days of the "21 days..." series (see my post "A Touch of Faith") was about evaluating your experiences. My evaluation of this emotional eating experience is A) The eating didn't help anything B) I felt worse due to disappointment in myself C) I will write down alternative things to do with myself the next time I have those emotional triggers D) Long term success depends on this behavior changing.
So I pull up the boot straps and carry on. Tomorrow is a brand new day.
