Stress eating

12 posts in this topic

The demon isn't food though, sweetie. The demon is the hurt your child experienced, and the hurt you are now experiencing because of it.

Write out a menu for the next few days, make a plan of what you are going to eat. Then stick to the plan. Once that plan is in place, then you can focus on finding another coping mechanism for the emotions. Moving your body really IS the best one for most of us. It allows that hurt and anger to be "worked off".

The more you think about food (even thinking about NOT eating)... the more you want to. Do what you can to put it out of your mind as much as possible.

You are a wonderful parent, and all of you are going to get past this.
