Well to be honest I know I have a problem with food. I would not go so far as to say it is something that can be medically ranked as being an outright disorder, but I rather view it as a really bad habit on my part.

I am a stress eater. When I stress, I want to eat, and it is usually the really bad stuff that I go after, fatty comfort food, chocolate, ice-cream… all the usual suspects.

Then I read something that really made me think:
http://zenhabits.net/crush/
“We don’t know how to cope with stress and boredom in a healthy way.”

And its truth hit home. I don’t know how to cope properly with the stress in my life, so I turn to stuffing my face. And of course the fact that I am stuck behind a computer for hours on end every week only add to the problem. In addition, not looking after my body, and having it in a condition of being tired and run down just adds to my inability to cope, and so the vicious cycle feeds itself in a never-ending loop.

But I have decided to put my foot down now. I am going to break this cycle one small habit at a time. And hopefully with the support of friends this is going to become a reality within the next few months.
