Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

Overeating Cookies Instead of Gobbling Life

Cookie Monster on Overeating CookiesCookie Monster understood this a long time ago, but it took me decades to truly understand…

Overeating cookies, obsessing about and plotting to get all sorts of food, in quantity, was an effective distraction. Focusing on food helped me avoid everything in life that left me feeling anxious …or I preferred to avoid.

Then, binge eating just took on a life of its own…and I stopped creating mine. I ate compulsively and lived my life on the sidelines….until I’d had enough!

Must not be an uncommon coping strategy, if Cookie Monster gets it (of course, as a Life Coach, this video made me smile from ear to ear)!

If you find yourself overeating cookies, regularly and detrimentally, what dreams, wants, and needs might you be ‘stuffing’, avoiding? Have you had enough?

About Ellen Shuman

Ellen on the phone

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
