have you ever felt this?
There was a point in my healing journey with emotional eating that I realized that I was turning to food when I wasn’t physically hungry because I was hungry for something I couldn’t name.
This weird hunger was different…it felt like an emptiness…not in my stomach…but like there was a hole in my heart.
This “emptiness” was confusing because I had a good life. “I should be happy,” I told myself.
So I tried to fill this hole with food.
But I realized that trying to fill this hole with my homemade gluten-free, vegan chocolate chip cookies was like giving a glass of sand to someone dying of thirst.
It only creates more thirst, more panic.
It creates a secondary problem to distract from the first problem…because the first problem (the weird empty feeling when I should be happy) was just too weird. Too uncomfortable.
It’s been almost 5 years since I’ve emotionally eaten, and I often think back to those times when I felt the inexplicable hunger…that weird empty feeling.
I think how I wish I knew how to work with that feeling back then like I do now.
If I just had the tools to get to the root of it and work through it, I wouldn’t have had to suffocate it with food.
If someone had just taught me that there is this thing called emotional hunger, that the “emptiness” was my emotional hunger speaking to me.
If I had been taught how to nourish myself emotionally, I would have been saved from years of suffering in the emotional eating cycle.
This is why I created Escape From Emotional Eating.
