Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

What Pressures Drive Your Emotional Eating?

No doubt, we live in stressful times, full of expectations…societal …and self-imposed. So many of us buy into the pressure…

How often I hear people say they feel they have to be “perfect”; to impress, to act in a certain ways, and most certainly, to look a particular way….thinner! Living with all of those expectations is exhausting! Goes without saying that all of those “shoulds” contribute to emotional eating, stress eating…even to binge eating.

What are we losing in all of our years of judgment, emotional pain and struggle; waiting to change, waiting to “lose weight” so we can be “happy”?

When I saw this video, it really resonated with me. How about you?

About Ellen Shuman

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!
