@angelexperiment I think we've all been there when it comes to emotional eating. Food is just such an easy emotional crutch. As soon as we're born, food becomes a source of comfort as much as it is a source of fuel, and we never really stop equating a full belly to total happiness. Trying not to eat our feelings is so, so tricky, but acknowledging we have tendencies towards binging through emotional difficulty can sometimes help us avoid getting into a spiral or perhaps getting back out of one.
There are so many things that are of zero interest to anyone who isn't trying to lose weight and it's nice to have a space to share those thoughts with other people who know the struggle is real! Vent away by all means... we all do. Writing it down can be cathartic!
Are you tracking your macros, or just calories? (Or neither?) I find if my digestive system is not pleased with me it's worth reviewing my recent food diary to see what I've done badly. The answer for me is coffee, but I find coffee to be answer to a lot of things.@GabiV125 Ha, a diet vacation... I didn't think of it like that. That's a really neat way to frame things, thank you. You gals really are such a tower of support. I need to force myself to post every time I sense myself going off track - the posting keeps me accountable. The thought of guzzling a greasy takeaway is less appealing if I know I'm going to have to 'fess up to it.
Well done on maintaining in the face of such yummy food!
