(this post is definitely not about what you were initially thinking)
These are all my triggers to overeating. When I am depressed or stressed out I raid the kitchen cupboards and the fridge.
I find myself innocently doing these things….
Whenever I am sick (and I am recovering from being sick almost a week) all I want are some comfort foods.
Country music….need I say anything about this?!?! I think that it has depressing lyrics and listening to it makes a person want to wallow in misery and self-pity
Anyways, I rarely (if ever) listen to music but every once in a while a song will pop into my head (Alabama and George Strait or even Miss Reba MacIntyre) and will get me into a depressive mood.
And boredom is maybe my #1 trigger happy enemy so I have to find productive ways to keep myself busy.
Because when I am busy I will not (over) eat.
I have to learn to myself and find other ways (besides food) to occupy my time and emotions.
So every day, every moment, I need to ask myself…
“What would a person who loves herself do?”
This can be my weight loss mantra
