Stress Without the Food

I know it's been a while...but boy has it been a week.

Since the wedding I've really had to test out this whole don't eat when your upset thing. Monday I got the news that my mother-in-law was getting set up with Hospice, I've got 3 children on antibiotics (2 for strep throat, 1 for a sinus infection), I quit my part time job to spend more time working on the business my husband and I started last June, and I backed into a UPS truck (don't ask!). My attention hasn't turned to food. It's kind of surprising. It's kind of like my brain just adjusted after the surgery. I really hope it stays this way! I really can't tell you what I'm doing instead of eating, but I don't know that I've replaced it with another habit. I just know that eating isn't a choice. I do know there have been a lot of tears shed this week, I guess that's not a bad thing though.

I am noticing a big difference in the way my clothes are fitting. For once I'm kind of glad I held onto all of those clothes that didn't fit anymore! Unfortunately, since everything is getting so big now I'm going to have to break down and clean out my closet! This really isn't a job that I want to do, but I really need to evaluate how much I have of what, by the weekend I should be reporting in on how that went.

Until next time...Hugs, Prayers for my Family & This Week's Got to Get Better!

  1. I'm so glad to hear the stress hasn't tempted you to eat. Don't even question it -- keep up the great work. You are a survivor.
