Emotional Eating

I'm an emotional eater. Thankfully, I've been able to control that side of myself (pretty well) for the past year and a half. Everything I've eaten, I've made a decision to eat, I didn't let myself eat out of emotion... Tonight, that broke. I ate because I'm sad. I ate because I'm depressed. I ate because I wanted to fill a hole and I don't know how else to fill it. Stupidly, I ate sugar and then proceeded to drive home. Sugar and I don't get along. At one point, I zoned out I forgot where I was and thought I had passed my exit. My stomach hurts and the food didn't fill the need I have.

I am not to forget this episode, and not to forget how I feel right now.

I need to find a better way to cope with my emotions.
