The Saturday support group: Emotional eating
Do you eat when you're sad, happy, stressed, anxious?
Do you compare yourself unfavourably to others?
Does it feel as if you are alone in a world of out of control eating?
Have you at times isolated yourself from the world?
Emotional eating can feel lonely and desperate and can make a person want to hide.
There is often a feeling that no one else understands...
Some people believe that it's easy - just stop eating.
If only it was that simple.
Emotional eating is complex but you are not alone.
Our emotional eating support group is a monthly meeting made up of respectful, understanding and friendly emotional eating. Each month we share thoughts and experiences we listen, we support. Over the weeks we will identify areas of life that can trigger emotional eating. We discuss tools for coping with triggers. How do other people influence our eating?
Our topics are wide and varied, from the influence of the media to the tricks and lies we tell ourselves when we've just eaten a whole wedding cake.
Come and join us and begin the journey back from emotional eating.
