Express Yourself!

26 Jun

Since my emotional blow up, I have been researching emotions during weight loss. I came across some interesting information worth sharing.

Taken from, Emotional Benefits of Losing Weight

In losing weight, you’re not only losing pounds, but emotional baggage as well.

Dependence on Food: Those who are overweight learn to deal with their problems by finding comfort in food. Food becomes a valuable crutch. Instead of showing emotions, you eat; you eat when you’re happy, you eat when you’re depressed, you eat when you’re bored. Food becomes your way of expressing emotion. As you lose the weight, you lose that emotional crutch and can begin to learn how to express yourself once again.

My next goal: learning how to express myself again.
