That, my friends, is emotional eating.
That’s not eating to satisfy hunger or to fuel my body.
I used to say that I didn’t eat emotionally, and I still don’t think I eat in response to anger or sadness or anything like that. Boredom, yes, or at least used to, but is boredom an emotion? It might be a stretch to say it is. I don’t know what emotion I was feeling when I had the above thought, but I know I didn’t NEED those tortilla chips. I closed the box and put it in the kitchen. Maybe I’ll have them tomorrow if they’re not stale and if I’m hungry.
