Confessions of a “Foodaholic” (Part 1)

I have something to confess.

I mean, it’s nothing life-threatening or anything.

However, it causes me pain in multiple areas of my life each time it happens.

It makes me feel bad about myself.

Mentally.

Socially.

Physically.

And yet, I still can’t seem to STOP DOING IT.

Like, “What the heck is wrong with me?”

Actually, Wait.

I take that question back. It’s not really a great question.

My brain will naturally search for an answer to this question.

And if the question is a bad question, I’ll get exactly that:

A bad answer.

My mind will think up negative thoughts, which will make me feel negative, and..well. Anyway.

A better question could be:

“What lesson have I not mastered yet?”

Yes.

I like that better.


So back to my confession.

Okay.

Here it is.

Are you ready?

I’m not sure I am.

Hold on just a second.

“Doo-da-doo..”

Okay.

Here goes.

For real this time!

The truth is that…

I EAT TOO MUCH.


Whew!

I said it.

Wow, that feels great to get off my chest.

I eat too much. That’s the truth.

And I know what you’re probably thinking: “Wait, I thought she was a health coach..Aren’t they supposed to be perfect and have no struggles or something?!

Well no, actually.

That’s why I know what NOT to do, because I have struggled with it before and struggle with is sometimes still.

You see, I eat until I’m full and then I keep on eating.

Then I find something sweet and eat that too.

A few minutes later I might “need” a snack.

So then I eat. And I continue eating.

And then my stomach feels as though it might RUPTURE…

Then I drink a glass of water and go collapse on the kitchen floor.

Oh the joy of food comas.

What bliss!



There are 2 things you should know about me:

#1. I am an extremely emotional person. See for yourself here labeled under “Weaknesses.” —> Meyer’s Briggs Personality Type: ENFP.

AND

#2. I’m an emotional eater.


Okay.

Stop right there.

I know you’re a smart person and can probably figure this out.

Can you see how this might cause some problems in my life?


Just think about it for a little while.

Say…a week or so?

Because I’ll be back next Tuesday to tell you about how I battle this head on!

—> Meeting my struggle with love, compassion, and positivity. 🙂

I love you.

With the most love and gratitude a heart can hold,
❤ Brittany
