Emotional Eating Triggers

Saturday, March 19, 2011

My emotional eating triggers are - Finances
- Husband not taking care of himself....this really worries me!

I'm living on a fixed income and trying to stay within this limited income is very hard. My husband is not able contribute to our income and this puts an even harder burden on me. He is in the process of getting on Disability ... he has many health problems that need to be addressed but he's a procrastinator and it seems that he doesn't to want to help himself. I fear he is heading for a Heart Attack. This worries me and makes want me to eat emotionally ...but I have not given in to these emotions...instead I'm using these to change my lifestyle for a healthier me. I have learned that I cannot make someone change, they have to want to change themselves. All I can do is focus on my health and not worry about everyone else. I will be there to give him support and encouragement but in the end it's all up to him to change his health for the better.

    You are an amazingly strong woman. I'm glad you have not allowed someone--anyone--to derail you from your healthy lifestyle choices. The best thing you can do each day for yourself and your hubby is to ensure you are healthy and strong and have a positive attitude!
