just sayin' ... don't tell anyone I'm delicate

Saturday, June 04, 2016

Most everyone I know thinks I am made outa concrete coz I come across that way I guess. But I really am fragile ... just don't tell anyone OK??

I have a fever blister from getting too tired ... worrying ... having NO control ... and not being able to use my bewitching project management powers. DD is 38 yo and Anne is her fourth healthy youngin' and a welcome surprise!!! DD is a hoarder and her house is ... a chaotic mess. SIL is two years sober and Anne's three siblings are still reeling from the roller coaster from the years ... well not sober. As the mom/grandma of this gang ... what can I do to fix it allllllll????? NOTHING!!!!!!!

They say the top three reasons we are "fluffy" ...

-We spend way too much time sitting

-We're really, really bad at remembering what we've eaten and how much exercise we've done

-Our portion sizes are way, way out of proportion

And my fourth reason ...

Eating when I am not physically hungry ... but when I need ... an emotional something.

No one has ever found a hug at the bottom of a cookie jar!!!!

    I suffer from emotional eating too. Short term fix, not a long term solution. A struggle that will last a lifetime. I hate it. Love your positive attitude though!

    Take care

    Right there with you!

    I have emotionally "et" my way to plus, plus size and back.

    It's tough. No you have no control over that particular situation. Only learn to change your reaction to it.

    We can't live their lives for them as much as we'd like to. We can't make it all better. We can just let them know we love them and offer encouragement when they do something good for themselves. Maybe offer a little advise (carefully), remembering that it may come back to bite us. No, there are no hugs at the bottom of the cookie jar, but you can hug yourself, because you are a good, caring mom and grandmom. (((((HUG))))

    I'm a recovering emotional eater too. There are several great articles on SP about emotional eating and how to gain control of it.

    Oh it doesn't stop us looking in the jar! emoticon

    Writing it down as soon as we eat it, stops us (me and you) forgetting
