We've all heard the saying that we have to "listen to our bodies" to decide if we are hungry, thirsty, in pain, during exercise,etc. I really think that I haven't been able to hear my body from all the junk food and diet coke I was putting into it.
For example. Yesterday I lashed out verbally at my daughter for no really good reason. Then while watching Parenthood I cried and cried. I heard my body saying "PMS". Before, these things happened so frequently that I could never really tell if I was getting TOM or not. Food can wreck havoc on your mood. It has forever for me.
I'm feeling more now that I am not numb to the food. I'm hearing and listening to my body.
