When will I learn!?!?!

Comfort eating never actually comforts! Instead of just being depressed and stressed I am: depressed, stressed and FAT! When will I learn!?!?!?


  1. I've asked myself that question a million times... and somehow I never come up with a satisfactory answer.

    I'm struggling a lot this week... after having a good couple of weeks. It's the same old story... and I am so sick of it.

    I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. We just need to never, ever quit... and the weight WILL come off. Hang in there. :)

  2. Been there, done that. So you messed up, what are you going to do now? You can't change what you did, but you can change what you are going to do. It happened, move on. Eat healthy today, excercise! Even if you screwed up already this morning, thats ok. Start over right now! We just have to break the pattern.

    I really hope you start feeling better, take the first step right now! =)

  3. I ask myself that all the time. I eat and even in the back of my mind I know that it will not bring me comfort. Even so much to the point that I feel disgust with myself even as I"m over indulging in something!

  4. I know exactly how you feel. It isn't very comforting when you have to beat yourself up over it for hours and days after. If you do something good for yourself and get back on track you'll feel better. It is just another hurdle to get over. Hang in there.

  5. I saw you on a blogroll and love the name of your blog!
    I too always turn to food to comfort me and then wonder why... cause it never makes me feel better...
    Maybe we can all learn together..

  6. I relate well to ever thing you are saying. I go through the exact ups and downs that you are writing about. I beat myself up everytime I mess up too. I am really trying now. I wish you the best of luck in your weight loss journey.

  7. I find that I DO get comfort IN THE MOMENT. The food is sort of like a narcotic.

    It's AFTER that the shame, regret, guilt, anger at self sets in that's not comforting.

    But, yes, I''l be honest--while I'm stuffing myself, it's very very very satisfying and gives me teh warm fuzzies and intense oral pleasure and emotional satisfaction.

    Later, it sucks.

    I think it's remembering and focusing the awful "later" that might help with saying NO in the "comfort seeking now."

  8. Your not alone. I know how you feel. Hang in there and start over tomorrow.

  9. Eating ALWAYS sounds like a great idea, and it will bring a sense of joy, but after it is brings on awful feelings. I hate it......but sometimes when life doesn't cooperate, you get tricked into thinking it will make you feel better. Keep your head up! :)

  10. you will.

    it will click some morning after in an AH HA! moment you didnt see coming.

    hang in and hang on.

  11. I think I sometimes forget that for all the pain and misery my overeating has caused me, I did it (and still do, sometimes) because it felt GOOD. The feeling is fleeting, and a lie, but it exists nonetheless. It's step on in a vicious cycle that I've repeated more times than I can even hope to count.

    I'm enjoying the blog, glad I stopped by to read...
