This cookie tastes like tears
I have been known to eat my feelings. So, now, I am hyper-aware of this. And I will ask myself, “Are you hungry, or do you want to eat your feelings?” If I get upset, I will say, “I want to eat my feelings!” That is as real as I can get. Sometimes I scream it. ”I’M ANGRY AND I WANT TO EAT MY FEELINGS!”
I acknowledge that I am an emotional eater.
I pledge to use food only as fuel for my body and NOT as a cure-all pill for bad feelings.
