Oh I have plenty of documentation, Pat! Thanks for the suggestion though. I just don't want to escalate the situation right now. I'd rather get the heck out of Dodge. Sometimes it takes too much emotional energy to fight the crazies of the world.

I keep documenting though, just in case it escalates without any prompting from me. I need to CYA and I know it.

Thank you for sharing, Dawn. I know that others have gone through the same kinds of things. It's nice to know that I'm not alone and you understand. I do trust that God has a better place for me. I just can't see it yet.

Hi Sassie! emoticon I am sorry to hear of the difficulties you had at your last job! I have worked for companies where I felt like the boss or hr was personally attacking me. Of course it would be the company that would let me go and I would cry and feel like my life was over. The next day I would wake up with a game plan to get unemployment and find a new job. After all that happens, you will wake up one day and realize that God had better plans for you and that your life isn't over.
It sounds like you are being positive about the whole situation so that is great! You aren't using food to handle the emotions you are feeling and that is a double great for you! emoticon emoticon

My status today says it all. I'm in a horrible situation at work with a loony tunes of a boss. HR agrees that I'm being personally attacked but aren't doing anything to stop it. I know I could hire an attorney and sue their a$$e$.... but who needs it? I'd rather just cut my losses and move on. But in this economy finding another job isn't that easy. The good news is.... I'm being successful at NOT turning to food over this!!!! But sometimes the anger and depression over this situation is almost overwhelming.

I hate men!!!!!!!!!!!!! They play so many games and seems like I am never going to get moving on my dman life!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHh

***Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!***

I'm glad this is a safe place to vent. I never realized I was an EE until my promotion. My job is very stressful, and one day something happened, and I started shoving crackers in my mouth really fast. It suddenly occurred to me what I was doing-the light bulb came on. Right now, when I start rooting around for food, I try to stop and figure out why. A lot of times, it isn't because I'm hungry. I'm bored or stressed or angry or lonely.

Blessings! Dee

Hi everyone, sorry to hear of your struggles and hope you find support and comfort in knowing we all understand.
With living on a fixed income end of the month is always hard. Not only is $$ gone, but much food supply. Staying true to my diet I find myself being very creative. Not am I only trying to keep hunger away but keeping true and making nutrious meals. Its difficult because others in the family though supportive don't share the same likes.
Add a holiday weekend to all this and here comes the stress. Wishing we could afford to do something fun, cooped up and boredom setting in, and it just adds to the above challenges. But I mastered it! Today I made a mac & cheese & tuna dish the family loves. For me I romed the sparkrecipes and found a great stir fry with brown rice and veggies and not only was it low cal, but very satisfying, and filling at the same time. Its times like these I feel like an explorer, some concoctions worth saving some not so much, but all in all I face it head on and push through. Whatever your challenge, think of the healthy or fun alternatives, their is always some. Instead of going out and spending money, pack a picnic lunch and take a hike, or walk to the park, have a backyard barbeque, have an indoor movie night and invite some friends over, or a card night, its back to the basics in hard times. I remember doing many of these things as a child and loved our family gatherings. As we all learn to deal with the economy and challenges we all face, I think we are becoming better neighbors, better friends and having alot more fun with our families. Change is Good!
have a wonderful day!
Debbie

Patricia - Here, we have a choice of two entres' two veggies, salad daily. breads,
and desserts. The only thing I take of the desserts is the sugar free ones. The biggest temptation here is the cappuchino bar. I have to stay way far away from that. Rarely are the veggies fresh but right now, we are starting to get some fresh fruit. It's a little early for that but all the canned fruits we have are packed in pear juice. That's better than heavy syrup but still too many added calories. It is up to us to decide what we are going to eat of the offered items. Sometimes it is picking the least bad of two evils. Having been a former CDE, I sit in on the menu meeting and represent the diabetics but rarely get listened to. I think there may be budget problems and the amount of food that is thrown away is staggering. If we could conquer that, we could purchase a better quality product. I'm working on it.

Welcome, Erin, to the EE team and your healthier lifestyle. Can you tell them that you moved there with your husband, and not mention your health? Also, most retirement communities can accommodate special diets for diabetics. If it was me, I would check it out.

I am not new to spark, but am new to this team and am living with my husband in a retirement community where I am the youngest person here. Not a day goes by when someone doesn't ask me what I am doing there. I jokingly refer to them as "the Wrinkles" and they call me either girlie or kid. But I really hate having to discuss my health issues with strangers. Is there a polite way to say "mind your own freakin' business"? I don't mind at all discussing it on spark because nearly everyone here is dealing with issues. I have two grown daughters that are following in my footsteps even though they see how much I have had to go through with my health. I just discovered that I was an emotional eater. I had seen that same article that is printed on the team here and said, "OMG that's me! That's what's wrong with me!" It was a rude awakening. The trick for me is going to be a balancing act. All our meals are prepared for us here and many of them, while delicious, are not healthy. So I have to balance the sliding scale for my insulin with eating what I can from their meals and then supplementing with fresh fruits and veggies we keep in the apartment. Exercise when I am healthy, is never a problem. This place is huge and you can walk for miles indoors or outside and there is an exercise room as well. So that's a little about me.

I just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I am not new to emotional eating. I have struggled with weight issues my whole life. I have had an eating disorder since I was twelve. I hope to gain some support and help others along this journey!! Good luck to everyone and wish you all a successful memorial day weekend!!

Don't get me wrong, I am not using it as an excuse! I am really in a good place in my life. I have been married 33 years this June to a wonderful man. I have held the same job, which I love, for 32 years. I have two great kids, both boys in their 20's who are off and living on their own; the eldest married and the youngest in a committed 4-year relationship; both to really great young women. And I have lost a total of 75 pounds! He did not win! I did!
I just wish that men would leave me the hell alone! Is there a friggin stamp on my forehead for cryin' out loud?
That is my rant for the day!

Hi! My name is Betsy ,I've lost 19.4 lbs. and I just found out yesterday I AM an EMOTIONAL EATER! I knew that I did NOT eat when I'm SAD or DEPRESSED,but I found out that when I'm MAD, I can polish off ANYTHING!!! Right now I'm at the NEAR END of my weight loss journey--only 6 lbs. to go that WON'T BUDGE!!! You would think I'd be happy as I lost this weight in the course of 4 mos.and have MORE ENERGY for my TODDLER and hubby,and my BMR is WAY HIGH, but due to many things,I want to SCREAM AT THE POUNDS[like my toddler says!]--like I posted in my blog yesterday. Weight has ALWAYS been an issue in my family and obesity claimed the lives of my parents--passed away for many years now,both were only in their 50s-- and now it's come full circle as the whole family,my younger siblings,too, are struggling with being overwt. or obese. I have ALWAYS BEEN a FIGHTER and having the knowledge of healthy eating and a discipline of exercise {but NOT a DISCIPLINE of the food intake},Sparkpeople was EXACTLY what I needed and it has been a GREAT FIT for me. That's why I have been able to lose the weight,but now that I'm at a healthy wt.{dr. says a few more lbs. for cholestrol to be normal},I think I'm ready for MAINTENANCE and no more losing.Anyway,there's my story.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

In God my heart trusts. ----Proverbs 28:7

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

KNOW that the LORD is GOD.It is HE who made us,And we are HIS;
We are HIS people,
The sheep of HIS pasture.

I am new to EE. I decided last night to search for an emotional eater's group and A Safe Place is just what I'm looking for. I've read through the last couple weeks of posts and you seem like a very supportive group with issues the same as mine. Right now I'm struggling with the attention of men. I have found in the past that when I start looking better, I start getting unwanted attention from men, you know, leering looks, inappropriate comments, and it makes me give up on the diet (sorry to use the "d" word), and emotionally eat. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and this is an issue for me. Last night someone who apparently has seen me at my place of employ stopped his vehicle as I was out walking my dog, and started talking with me. That would never have happened 75 pounds ago. It made me very uncomfortable, and I'm trying not to eat my way back to my old body. I know that I use my weight to hide from having to "deal" with a lot of issues. So thanks for letting me vent and providing the place for me to do so.

I'm in the middle of a "agreeing to disagree" with a good friend, which in other words means we've both hung up on each other. Now, an e-mail sits in my basket which I'm not in the mood to open. I hate friction and tension. What emotion does that come under because it's offsetting and I know will lead to a binge and possible more that one.
Yuck to emotions!!!!

I just joined EE this morning, and it's nice to find this "safe place." I truly eat by emotion not by appetite, and my husband has a hard time understanding that. Of course, he's got his own struggles as a diabetic, but he's not emotionally triggered. So, when I need to blow off steam, I know where to come!!! Thanks for any and all support and help given.

I'm struggling big time with weight loss, so much so I'm not only NOT losing weight I'm gaining weight. It's also due to new meds side effect.
But my friend loves Atkins and pushes it al;l the time! I don't like the concept of it myself. All that meat/cheese/egs etc.......
I love my vegies and fruit. But, I'm all for cutting way down on carbs like bread, pasta and rice.
But, they're so hard to give.
I feel like grrrr. too

I'm so glad to know this is here! I'm having a rough time, trying to decide the best way for me to go about weight loss, being pushed from several directions, and of course I just want to EAT to make everything better....it's wonderful to be able to just vent. Thank you!

Oh, Mary. I am so sad that your mother spoke to you like that. Those are harsh and horrible words for any parent to say. She should be glad you are still alive. My grandmother used to tell me that I was fat and ugly and no one would ever love me. It is very hard to get over words like that said by loved ones.

I've been training for my 2nd marathon, have lost 35 pounds in the process. Sounds like all is well, doesn't it? But I struggle tremendously with self-esteem issues, I am in therapy. Right now I believe I'm only worth what I can DO - that I have no inherent value. So I had a challenge to this yesterday in group, and punished myself with food. I ate to the point of feeling sick. And I didn't let myself run. I feel like I need a hug and a good cry, but I have to go to work.
SP is helping me set goals for my therapy, too - thanks SP!
It was an emotional day and I didn't handle it in a nurturing way. I'm sad. I know I'll get back on track, but I'm sad about this.

I totally need to vent! I am angry, frustrated, and heart broken! The past 24 hours have been HORRIBLE! My parents - and by extension our whole family - has had such trouble with my 15-year-old brother. He has been in a lot of trouble legally over the past several months. Yesterday he had another huge outburst towards my parents and me. He is now BACK in the youth detention center for the third time. I am so tired of him being so verbally and emotionally abusive towards my parents! And then I had an awful night at work! ARGH!!!!

RACHELLECANCIO I am so sorry your mom inlaw did that to it I have a mother from hell who never has a positive thing to say.I gained 80 pounds 5 years ago mostly due to my cancer and my emotionally eating response to my illness.Since then I have been called trailer trash and worse my mom is a nurse and thinks overweight people are of poor quality.I have lost 50 pounds since christmas yet she still feels I am wothless because I am not the size two I was.I was size two only because I was bulimic before they found my cancer she says atleast I WAS THIN THEN.We need to find away to sheild ourselves from people who talk without thinking orcaring how they hurt.I am proud of you for not choosing the ice cream WAY TO GO HUN

when you can still do what's good for YOU in the face of such open hostility? Wow, girl, you are doing GOOD! That is being extremely brave and strong.

I just want to say, I LOVE "A Safe Place." So many of us are hurting, and have turned to food for comfort. What a great alternative, to be able to talk and get support from everybody here, rather than from food. So thank you for "A Safe Place." emoticon
