I searched, I coulda sworn there was a sub group for emotional eating... couldn't find it.
I'm addicted to sugar, first choice ice cream. I've done a lot of work on myself and around this and honestly it seems to have a bigger grip on me than ever. Seven months ago I pulled my back (again) really badly. Since then I feel like I got knocked off my healthy eating, working out track and walked away from it. I've been eating like I did when I was in High School for the past 7 months.
While I'm happy as heck I haven't gained weight (30 lbs to loose, but didn't go up at least), I know how very unhealthy this is. I KNOW about healthy eating, that it's better to be alkaline then acidic, that cancer cells thrive in sugar, that I feel best when I get lots of green smoothies and green juices in.
And when I was in so much pain for 3 solid months with back pain, it's crazy, but I wanted to give myself that 'break'. When there is stress between my husband and me, when I feel lonesome, when I feel stressed, and then there's just the plain big 'ol sugar cravings.
I would love to find some peace with this. Some things to DO instead of eating ice cream. I've heard people go exercise and that's what I would have done in my youth, but I'm so tired, it would take a fire to get me moving when I'm in the 'zone'. I have about five books on the topic and haven't read a one.
Is anyone else out there in the same boat or been in the same boat and gotten off?
