Jessica has this to say about emotional eating: “Overeating is a REJECTION of Self. It is a moment of self-betrayal. In order to truly heal your relationship with food, you must address the fundamental disloyalty towards yourself.”
UGH. I WISH I would have heard THAT earlier in my life. While I don’t fall into the emotional eating trap as often as I used to, it’s something I still need to be mindful of, especially when I’m stressed, hurt or angry. Because loyalty to myself is at the top of my priority list… I hope it’s on yours too.
Jessica Procini, is the founder of Escape From Emotional Eating®, and has been helping women heal the roots of their emotional eating so they can embody their full potential.

Before we can heal our relationship with food and eating, or whatever it is that YOU do that fills a void or masks a feeling temporarily but ultimately has you feeling WORSE about yourself, we must heal ourselves.
And healing ourselves is an ongoing, never ending, journey. No one else can do it for you. Nothing else will heal you, except you.
