Yes, I get emotional eating. I had it before I was diagnosed, and I have it afterwards. I try NOT to do it...instead, searching out other alternatives. Exercise, calling a friend, etc. BUT, I do and have done it. I expect to do it next week...but, I am trying to set myself up some safety nets to keep me from doing it. For instance, I KNOW it is going to be a tough week, so I have talked to folks to let them know I might need their ears...and, I have tried to get rid of the bad stuff from the house. Helps when the werewolf comes out. My co-workers are going to love the influx of treats! LOL
Once in a while, those binges are not going to be awful on your numbers. But, doing it daily, all the time...well, it will.
When you have those emotional eating binges...you cannot go back and change it. All you can do is figure out ways to set up some safety nets for the future, and go on. As the kids like to say a lot now a days...It is what it is....
I think you will be pleased with your next a1c results...and, I look forward to hear you when you do!
