Times are a changing

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Yesterday I got outside my comfort zone...we went to visit friends who are sort of family, a step mother of my BIL....I have meet her before and she has been to our home several times but never at her home....I get anxious when I have to go to new places...will I fit in the chairs, will there be steps all those old issues I use to have......I don't have those issues any more ,but still have the feelings in the back of my mind .... yesterday was not so as time must be taking care of this, as my brain seems to be getting more acceptable of my body and my flaws....I'm starting to be more comfortable with me...
I will be under a huge amount of pressure in the next few weeks....Gary will be gone for 5 days, it's not till the ned of the month but I'm already getting nervous about it......then my sister and BIL are coming for about 5-7 days....I want everything to be daily routine won't be the same...I am going to have to be on top of this....and I'm already starting to plan how I'll handle the different foods in the house and going out eating way more...
so I have always said planning is the way to go so we shall see if I can plan for any situation

I am very hopeful things will be good, not perfect but good.

lets all have a healthy week

    Kitt, I am sure you will do well. You always think before just eating anything.

    Has your family ever been to your house? How fun that will be for you.

    While gary is gone, do some beading! Or start something new, like making beads and stuff with polymer clay.

    Planning is definitely the key to success, and you are a master at it. Try not to worry too much -- it wastes energy and just makes you a wreck. One day at a time, and keep planning. You are going to be fine, Kitt. Deep breath!

    Rainbow had an excellent question, too -- why will you have different food in your house when your sis is there? Stick with your normal foods and let them eat healthy with you. There is absolutely no need to change that. If you want to be "perfect" just keep doing what you're doing. THAT is perfect! emoticon

    You care too much about what people think, you are a lovable person stop over thinking things.

    May I ask, why there would be different foods in the house?
    You eat healthy, feed them healthy.

    With Gary being gone, you could do some of your old stuff to fill in the time. Like quilting or knitting or what ever it is you enjoy, don't be lonely, enjoy the time with yourself.

    Hugsssssssssssss Mary

    I'm not a big fan of Change either, although I'm come to accept it as inevitable--and even necessary. All the successful changes you've made Kitt, this visit with your in-laws will go just fine :)

    You are a warrior and a survivor!!

    Muslims say "man plans and Allah laughs". Although I am a Christian, I get it. It's good to plan but expect things will not always happen as we planned.
    I think that is one reason that SP provides a target range for nutrition instead of a fixed number.

    Well you can relax nothing in life is ever perfect :) We all strive for it but we will never get perfection nor should we, we should all do the best that we can and accept that, if other people can't thats their problem not ours :)
