experiencing emotions while losing weight

I have been on the weight loss program for the last four months and seen good results. Recently I have become much more aware of my emotions, and I know that is part of the work. But lately I’ve noticed that I feel so many more negative emotions on a regular basis, that don’t tend to go away. I try to allow them, and there are definitely times when I don’t succeed and end up overeating. Is it normal when going through the thought work of weight loss to feel like you’re carrying around so many negative emotions during the day?

I know that I am not supposed to want them to go away, but how long should I expect to need to process feeling uncomfortable all the time? I am ready for the other 50% to kick in!
