busting at the seams…

Image result for images of emotional eating

I don’t do drugs,
she told herself in consolation,

yet she stuffed her face
and got sedated
on pies and cream cakes,

her righteous self
busting at the seams

This is me of late. Guilty! I am an emotional eater and when I’m unduly stressed like I’ve been for many weeks now, I go into eating overdrive.

  1. I used to be an emotional eater too. Packets of biscuits would just disappear along with blocks of chocolates. Sugar is a drug and addictive. Then I had blood tests for diabetes, I was boarder-line I had to reduce the sugar intake, therefore I stopped the sugar, it was a must. Sugar builds up pressure in your body and head. When you do not eat sugar and then eat a little you can feel the impact on your body, very unpleasant. Take care Blessings

  2. It is such a wastage to see sweet delicacies slowly shriveling in the fridge. But then I look at the belt struggling to keep my pant in position and I walk away with a sigh. Sad.

  3. Me too, guilty… but don’t give a hoot right now. When I get fed up I guess I will have the willpower to change the habit.

  4. I do the reverse. I lose my appetite when I’m stressed. Plus, after years of extreme sugar swings, I stay from sugar as much as I can. We all have our ways of trying to deal with challenges, whether right or wrong. This too shall pass.
