Hello, Beauties! Do you panic when you just can’t find satiation? You’ve been there before. It’s the reason you graze. No matter what or how much you eat, you just never feel full. So you keep foraging in the fridge and pantry looking for the right food to “scratch your itch”.
Do you panic when you just can’t find satiation?
As you’re reading this blog, I want you to store it away for the next time you are eating like a locust and can’t find fullness so that you can let go of the panic and get curious about whatever emotion you don’t want to feel.
You see, food can never solve this problem. Food can solve hunger but it has some wicked side effects as a cure for emotion – like all those extra pounds that keep attaching themselves to your body.
I’ve been in that place of panic for the last few days. My husband was away on business. I had the house to myself. On one hand, I reveled in the autonomy. But on the other, I missed having another breath in the house.
With no one watching or judging (really just me judging me), I could eat at abandon. No matter what I ate, I could not find fullness. Not with good for my body food. Not with junk food. And I felt that panic like not being able to catch your breath or nearly drowning.
Thank goodness for good tools.
Satiation is a function of your human body. If I were truly hungry, satiation would happen. It’s how my machine of a body works. Not being able to find it was a major clue that this eating had nothing to do with hunger and everything to do with emotion.
The more you practice feeling emotion instead of eating it, the more willing you will be to look yourself in the eye when you find yourself in this place. After all, the worst that can happen is you feel whatever is bubbling up. AND THEN IT’S GONE and BONUS: You don’t want to binge anymore.
So, what was I feeling?
My oldest buddies:
Except none of them were true today. They are attached to things that happened to me in the past. I didn’t know how to feel the emotion then so it crops up every time there’s an opportunity. Then I get to make the decision to continue not feeling – which results in eating (and pounds) – or sitting with myself and let the emotion move thru me and dissipate.
Learning that skill of BELIEVING emotion WILL move thru you is one of the major building blocks of losing weight without deprivation and NEVER gaining it back. Not there yet? That’s ok, the intellectual idea just hasn’t moved down into your heart and even deeper down into your bones yet.
The path to get there is committing to making decisions that leave you head over heels in love with your beautiful body, so that it no longer needs the weight you are carrying.
and put “I’m choosing to feel instead of eat!” in the Subject line.
That will connect us and save your spot for your free 30-minute session with me. I’ll show you how learning to genuinely love yourself is the glue to losing weight without deprivation.
I love you my Voluptuous Beauties
