PCOS Lady:
Years ago i dealt with high stress daily from my job… I had swollen lymph nodes behind my ears to the point of hurting plus landed in the hospital for PID… The PID was chalked up to the stress… My Gyno told me my immune system was nil… Back then i had no idea on how to get it back…

How Can I Identify Eating Triggers?
~
Situations and emotions that trigger us to eat fall into five main categories:
~
SOCIAL: Eating when around other people. For example, excessive eating can result from being encouraged by others to eat; eating to fit in; arguing; or feelings of inadequacy around other people.
~
EMOTIONAL: Eating in response to boredom, stress, fatigue, tension, depression, anger, anxiety, or loneliness as a way to “fill the void.”
~
SITUATIONAL: Eating because the opportunity is there. For example, at a restaurant, seeing an advertisement for a particular food, passing by a bakery. Eating may also be associated with certain activities such as watching TV, going to the movies or a sporting event, etc…
~
THOUGHTS: Eating as a result of negative self-worth or making excuses for eating. For example, scolding oneself for looks or a lack of will power.
~
PHYSIOLOGICAL: Eating in response to physical cues. For example, increased hunger due to skipping meals or eating to cure headaches or other pain.

Losing weight is hard! And there’s a surprising reason why – many women have physiological imbalances in their bodies that prevent weight loss, no matter how hard they try. At Women to Women we call this weight loss resistance, and simply put, you must heal those physiological imbalances if you want to lose weight.
