Default Stayed within my WW points, but didn't feel good...

An interesting thing happened the other night. My husband and I had an argument that was upsetting to me, and I found myself right in the kitchen (just like old times). The thing that I found interesting is that I ate, and ate and ate, but made it a point to stay within my weight watchers points. So I didn't go off my plan, but I actually felt awful and really uncomfortable eating in that fashion. I think it's a good thing that I realize this. So much of this process for me is getting healthy with my entire relationship with food. Thanks for reading!

Laura - thats great you stayed within your points, it's interesting that what we used to do just doesn't feel right anymore.. things are changing! I know when I get really upset now I just can't eat until its resolved, and I've had to start really talking about whats bothering me. Who knew that could work.. I thought chocolate chip cookies were the only thing that used to help

Aimee,
It's so true that what was once my first line of defense from anything emotional now is not effective at all! I actually felt worse after I had my binge. It just doesn't work anymore and I'm so thankful for that. There was a time, a long time when food served such profound purpose in my life. I'm now really trying to put it in a place that holds much less significance. It's also amazing to really acknowledge how very much I used to eat. I'm doing the WW points and sometimes I recall old "snacks" being half of what my total point allotment is for the day!

Laura - when I was reading the bags of chips the other night at work, and they had like 30 grams of fat in them! Thats OVER half of what I'm aiming for in a day.. SO insane! I hope as I get stronger and stronger that food won't hold such a grasp on me, because I have to admit sometimes a full fat latte and cinamon bun are what I REALLY want for breakfast instead of oatmeal! heh..
