Admitting that I was an emotional eating was a big part of my journey.
I went for sweets, chips, and pizza for comfort!
When I read this it always hit home to me personally.
“When the desire for treats is triggered by difficult emotions, it’s not really a desire for treats. It’s a attempt at self-medication.”
My soul needed nourishment because I was hurt or upset…but I didn’t understand that and wanted comfort and I choose to find that in food instead.
So try to your soul next time you get emotional.
Sip some green tea
Take a walk
Read a book
Read a devotional
Write an encouraging note/text to a friend
Memorize an uplifting verse
Take a bubble bath
Find a favorite praise song
What would be on your list to , refuel and refill your soul?
“I spread out my hands to you; I thirst for you like a parched land.” Psalms 143:6
“Thought for the Day: When the desire for treats is triggered by difficult emotions, it’s not really a desire for treats. It’s a thinly veiled attempt at self-medication.” – Lysa TerKeurst Made to Crave
Made to Crave Prayer:
Dear Lord, I have connected emotional emptiness with a desire for more food. Please help me to deal with these triggers so I can recognize them for what they are and put them to rest. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
