    They are who they are--why I'm going to Al-Anon is because I really get that the only one I can change is ME. Too bad losing fat is a LOT easier!

    Exactly. You absolutely can be a 3. I mean, I've hugged you! That doesn't mean you NEED to be a 3 and if you really start lifting, you'll get a bit bigger in some spots, so you may have to wear a bigger size just cos of that.

    Women don't "bulk up" like they say but I know VERY lean, athletic women who are super-tight and tiny yet will take a size larger than you think...cos they're SO small in parts of their body that MOST women aren't...(cos things are not cut for women to be that lean, typically).

    I've never heard them complain! I mean, put on a belt ;p

    Truth be told, when I'm tighter/ leaner, my waistline is always drooping cos I'm big across the bum and thighs. In order to accommodate that (even when I'm small), I pretty much have stuff falling off in other places.

    I'm not athletic! But it even happens to me.

    I'm working on not "caving" into those binges. I've been "okay" with comfort eating for years because I *know* it's my issue but not going up 2 sizes in 2 weeks. That's well, it shows how bad things are. In truth, part of that is probably STRESS HORMONES (which tell my body to hold onto fat) as well.

    As you said, it'll leave slower, and that's the part I hate!

    I spoke to my Sponsor for OVER an hour!! I don't exactly "feel better" but I feel less panicked.

    I'm going to drop "my investigation" of the whole thing cos it's driving my nuttier. If anything else happens weird, I'll ring the doctor (like I was going to confront him today) and the nursing supervisor.

    As for all the side stuff that I didn't really mention or mentioned a bit, I'm going to try to not get involved in that and actually define a boundary with my brother here. His way of dealing with the current stress is also stressing me out. I sooooo do not want to knoooooow.

    Your comment yesterday on my blog really, really made my day. It seriously helped pull me out of the funk I could feel starting. Thank you so much for your encouragement. You truly are fantastic. emoticon

    What a bunch of compliments! I love reading everything YOU write. You are so clever and so loving. What a wonderful trainer / therapist you'll be if you follow that path!

    Sorry about your situation--I haven't read your last blog but I've been reading...

    I see that a lot in people: the tracking becoming an addiction in itself or at least the tool that adds fuel to whatever.

    It's amazing to me: I keep saying this over and over the past few months:

    The more I hear people speak the TRUTH: even though our details (family, how we do things) are DIFFERENT, the more they're the same.

    I guess we're human, so we're a lot more alike than most people say.

    I guess we "sound crazy" or what we've been told is sick or crazy but if THIS MANY of us experience the same problems, the same emotions, the same reactions to stimuli?

    Erm, we're not CRAZY. Honest! Now, I *am* eccentric but bingeing over my mother's BS and all the other family stuff going along with it?

    Hello? Bingeing isn't healthy but it's NOT CRAZY. It's a pretty common response.

    It's not "okay" but it's not like I'm "bad" for doing it. It's harming myself. Some people would get drunk, some people would cheat on their significant other (I'm speaking of how my family is dealing with this situation RIGHT NOW), some people go so far into denial that they won't pick up the phone or leave the house for fear they're confronted with somebody KNOWING what's happening.

    It's all sick, it's all unhealthy and it's how we react. We hope to turn that around to a healthier reaction but nobody's perfect.

    I'm so happy we met here!
