I continued on my emotional eating train for many more weeks, but the truth that I didn’t need to be eating keep tapping on my shoulder, reminding me that this wasn’t part of any solution that was going to get me feeling better about myself. Like a giant gorilla hanging on me, every time I stuffed things into my mouth, I could hear that ape jumping around “but you’re not really hungry. This is why you are gaining weight. You don’t need that.”
Man, I hated that monkey.
