👉🏼 overwhelm

👉🏼 procrastination

👉🏼 insecurity 

👉🏼 always feeling “on”

Why I would eat (a personal story)

January 15, 2024
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Hey, 

Once upon a time, many, many years ago… 

When I had finally gotten over the shock that I was an emotional eater… 

When I learned that the compulsion I felt towards food was not in any way “normal”… 

And when I was finally ready to do the work to create a peaceful relationship with food…

I became aware that I was using food to numb a LOT of the dark feelings I felt. 

Stress. 
Anxiety. 
Sadness. 
Fear. 
Loneliness. 
Exhaustion. 
A constant feeling that no matter what I did, I was never enough. 

As I stayed committed to my freedom, continued to surrender to expert support, and did the real work, my emotional eating started to become more and more extinct. This was really exciting for me! 

For the first time, I started to believe that true peace and freedom with food was really possible for me.

BUT – That’s when I had another shocking realization. And I see this for ALL the clients I work with… 

This realization was that I was ALSO using food to numb the light

I’m not just talking about the feel-good feelings like… 

Joy. 
Excitement. 
Confidence. 
Pride. 
Connection. 
Gratitude. 

Yes, I was numbing those. And I see my clients do the same. 

But what I’m talking about here is that I was numbing MY light, my power.

Marianne Williamson said it perfectly back in 1992, 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

THIS, *|FNAME|*, is one of the main roots of why I would eat. 

Because I had never been taught: 
(1) that I had intrinsic power 
(2) what that feels like in my body 
(3) how to feel SAFE with it 
(4) how to use it to support the highest good instead of destroying my fullest potential

When I realized this, I once again deeply committed to my next level of growth and learned what I had once not been taught.

It’s been 8+ years since I have felt any itty bitty piece of compulsion around food. My emotional eating is fully extinct.

I hope you found this story inspiring. I’d love to hear… what piece of this resonated with you? 

In my work with my clients, we talk about experiences where they’ve felt powerless, and I support them in reclaiming that power. It’s an important conversation that I believe more people, especially women, need to be having. 

So I’d love to hear from you! Hit reply to this email and let me know what resonated with you? 

You can expect me to personally respond because that’s who I am and how I roll. 😁

Looking forward to hearing from you! 

In service to your freedom,

P.S. If you sense a friend or loved one would resonate with my story here, PLEASE forward this email to them. As I said, this is an important conversation that more people, especially women, need to be having. 💖

Quick Tip: Peace

December 25, 2023
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Peace does not mean to be in a place where everything is perfect. 

Instead, peace means to be in the midst of chaos, noise, and frustration and still be calm and clear in your heart.

In service to your freedom,

P.S. Wishing you peace-filled Holidays from all of us here to Escape From Emotional Eating. 💖

my recommendations for staying grounded this week 

December 17, 2023
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Hey! I just wanted to check in as I’ve been thinking of you as we continue to move through this time of intensity – the Holidays! 

So, I wanted to share a few recommendations with you on how to stay grounded and avoid emotional eating this week.

Recommendation #1: Prioritize Calming Your Nervous System 

This is something I am in constant practice with, no matter what time of year it is. 

One way I do this is by committing to taking a walk outside, no matter how wet, windy, or cold it is. This helps me stay grounded and refrain from getting caught in the push-push-push-go-go-go mode that is so unhealthy for me to operate from. 

Another thing that helps me calm my nervous system is using one of the energy management tools I teach in my programs. My favorite tool right now is Digesting Gladness™, which helps me process what IS happening in my life. It helps me not let things pile up inside or get emotionally overwhelmed. 

If you don’t have a similar tool in your life, simply putting your thoughts on paper in whatever way feels good for you can help lighten your internal load

Recommendation #2: Create Time Where You Aren’t Consuming

‘Tis the time of year when consumption reaches an all-time (dare I say, UNHEALTHY) high! Food, drinks, family, work, email, social media, shopping, and other people’s energy are just a FEW examples of things we consume throughout the day! 

By staying tuned into your body and your natural rhythms of fullness, you’ll be able to say “I’m full,” or “I’ve had enough for now,” when the rest of the world is consuming till they’re quite literally, sick. 

Having time where you are intentionally digesting rather than consuming will automatically recharge your batteries. 

Because all humans have a natural limit, and anything beyond that creates a form of suffering. 

Recommendation #3: Record Your Triggers 

One of the things I’m always reminding my clients is, “Your triggers are treasures.” 

While triggers are uncomfortable to experience in the moment, if you can capture even the smallest aspect of your experience and revisit it later on with curiosity, you can learn A LOT

So, the next time you notice yourself feeling triggered, I recommend excusing yourself and going to the bathroom. Open the notes app on your phone and take a few moments to record your thoughts, feelings, or details from your experience. 

Allow this simple step to be enough for now

Final thoughts…

It’s common to want to try to escape intensity (no matter what season you’re in), but you are strong, and you are capable of weathering this storm – internally and externally.

Food will not make things better. Not in the short term. Certainly not in the long term.

Stay present in your body.

Surrender when you feel yourself trying to “grip” or control. 

Most of all, if you feel like you’ve “lost yourself,” do not wait until the New Year to come home to yourself or your body. 

In service to your freedom,

P.S. If your intuition has been nudging you to receive support to heal your relationship with food, you can follow through on that intuitive nudge by clicking here. Chat soon!

A cycle of deferring your needs

December 11, 2023
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

I really want to eat a burger.

One of my clients mentioned this in a recent session together. She went on to explain, 

“Every couple of days I feel a strong craving for red meat. But I don’t go get it when I want it.” 

She shared with me that to her, a burger is not a bad food. She finds it satiating. But she doesn’t get it when she wants it. 

Frustrated with herself she said, “Why don’t I just go get it? I’m not acting in alignment with what I know!

I know you’ve had a similar experience too. So let’s take a look at this together. 

If you ever brought this struggle to a general health coach or a nutritionist, they would waste your time telling you how red meat is rich in protein, iron, zinc, and B vitamins. They would go on to tell you all the recipes you could make and even send you links to match. 

Not me. 

In my work with my clients, we go above and beyond. I get right to the core issues.

In this case, the problem isn’t the burger. 

And pumping a client full of factual information will rarely motivate someone to create sustainable change or even change their behavior in the long term. 

The core issue in this example is being stuck in a cycle of deferring your needs.

It’s the self-sabotaging habit of overriding your inner knowing

And if left to your own devices, and overwhelmed by unhelpful nutritional facts about protein, you would continue living in this perpetual cycle of deferring your needs.

It’s why my clients choose to work with me. 

Because I’ve been doing this work for 12+ years, I’m able to get to the root of the issue with just a few questions. 

My clients tell me that we get more done in 15 minutes together than they did in 5 sessions with their therapist. 

When you have a truffle-sniffing pig like myself on your team, who can see beyond the surface and get to the root of your issues, you get a higher return on your investment of time, energy, and resources. 

Instead of sharing how red meat is rich in protein, I support my clients in seeing the inner and outer aspects of their choices – the physical, the mental, and the emotional. 

I shine the light on the hidden limiting beliefs you are operating under, especially when it comes to your true needs.  

And support them in creating a different experience and moving it to action with strong accountability. 

All so the habit of deferring your true needs, over time, becomes extinct. 
Not just with food. But with ALL aspects of life.


If you are stuck in a perpetual cycle of deferring your needs, and it’s time to let in my support, click here so we can explore if working together would be a fantastic fit.

Love your truffle-sniffing pig, 

P.S. I hope you learned something from this snapshot from a client session. Personal details have been omitted to protect privacy and maintain anonymity. The core issues that most women who strive for excellence have in common and my approach to working with them is what I endeavored to express. This is not a recounting of anything else. 

P.P.S. I am indescribably grateful to every person with whom I have had the privilege of working. The women I work with are a small but mighty group of powerful, amazing, women leaders who are no longer willing to let their relationship with food/body/self stand in their way. To my former and current clients: I love every one of you. 

Something small to noodle on

December 4, 2023
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

To truly heal your relationship with food, you must do the inner work to address the fundamental disloyalty you have towards yourself.

Because at the core, emotional eating is an act of self-rejection and self-betrayal.

Just something to noodle on. 

In service to your freedom,

P.S. In my work with my clients, we do this inner work together so you are no longer betraying or abandoning yourself. To discover if my unique approach is a fantastic fit for you, click here so we can schedule some time to explore this together! 

Feeling bleh in your body? Read this. 

November 27, 2023
Jessica Procini | Escape From Emotional Eating

Feeling bleh in your body today?

Be gentle with yourself. 

That means: watch the way you relate to yourself. 

Whenever you’re feeling bleh in your body… adding shame, blame, and guilt will only make you feel worse. 

Bullying yourself only blinds you from seeing what truly needs to change.

Watch out for any compulsions to over-exercise or restrict food as a way to make up for past mistakes, numb discomfort, or try to control your body.

Quick fixes never turn into long-term solutions. 

Instead of divorcing yourself when you aren’t feeling your best, it’s a time to reconnect with yourself and tune in. 

Now you might be thinking, “What? What do you mean to reconnect with myself and tune in?” 

Let me explain… 

Anything used addictively – like overeating, overdrinking, overworking…even overexercising – puts a buffer between yourself and your awareness of your body and feelings. 

This puts you out of touch with your needs and disconnects you from your intuition and inner guidance. 

In healing your addictive patterns, you get back in touch with yourself, your feelings, and your needs

In that process, you learn what your body is trying to communicate. And you’ll know how to lovingly support yourself to feel better. 

This is exactly what we do together in our private work together here at Escape From Emotional Eating. 

In fact, it’s literally my core mission: to help women who strive for excellence get back in touch and stay in touch with themselves by healing the roots of their emotional eating. 

Because your relationship with yourself is the foundation of everything. It’s the common denominator in every aspect of your life. 

And since you strive for excellence, you need your foundation to support you in operating at a higher, more efficient level. 

Click here to learn more about how our work together would support you in doing exactly that!

In service to your freedom,

I really appreciate you!
