Any time you are eating for any reason other than hunger- eating for entertainment, because you’re bored, because you are sad, etc
The idea of weight loss is actually quite simple, right? Eat less than your body needs and it will use the fat off of your body. Eat more than you need and you will store fat.
The problem is that we are using food to solve problems other than hunger. Every time we try to diet, restrict, eat “healthy” foods that we don’t enjoy, is that all of the emotions that we have been stuffing down show up. That can feel incredibly scary when we don’t know how to feel our emotions. We don’t like to feel negative emotions. Fear, boredom, irritation, dissatisfaction, anger, worry, shame, disappointment, guilt. It can all feel like too much. So we eat.
Listen to our talk about what emotional eating is, what causes it, and how to start taking steps to stop using food to buffer your feelings.
Nathan and I had such an awesome day today! The weather in NC is unseasonable warm, so we took advantage by taking the dogs to Flanner’s Beach on the Neuse River. Check out the pics below and take a few minutes to listen to our second podcast!
This is super exciting for me. Nathan and I have been talking about recording a podcast for an awfully long time. I finally got the equipment up and running. Bear with us, I had to go back and increase Nathan’s volume, but I think it came out pretty great. Also, we couldn’t help it, we both cursed. Maybe don’t listen with your kids.
We basically just are introducing ourselves, talking to Anna, my sister who is travelling, and discussing the gun and knife show in Greenville that we will probably go to tomorrow. Nothing spectacular. We are going to schedule these in once a week. Also, Nathan’s laugh is infectious.
Edit: I should also add that Nathan and I are not actually going to buy up tons of guns from the gun show. We were joking. The recent events and the tragedies going down in the US these days are out of control. We don’t plan on being a part of the problem.
