I know that everyone ever says emotional eating is bad. In general, this makes sense, particularly if it's making you fat. But what if it's not? I know I'm an emotional eater. I am a Girl Who Eats My Feelings, as are a lot of my friends, but I'm nowhere close to obese. So is it so bad that I have eating as a coping mechanism? If there's nothing I can do to fix my frustration/anger/sadness, what's wrong with having food as an outlet?
I ask this because today sucked, and I have no desire to eat an entire pan of brownies to compensate for it. I wasn't very hungry all day, and I'm pretty much having to force myself to eat now. It is unnatural and wrong, but I seem to have broken myself, at least for today, as far as emotional eating goes.
