I want to give you a BIG
for your success so far. You have done an amazing job!!!
Sadly many of us give power up to others as to how we feel or should feel, but now may be the time for you to take control. A few months ago I happened to be running in my neighborhood when a car full of teenage boys passed me by and said some not so nice things about me. In the past I would have been devastated (even though I am old enough to be their mother) by this, but I just shook my head a felt sorry for them. Sometimes people have no clue as to how their behavior affects others, that being said, we have the choice to eat our emotions or to channel them into more productive means such as going for a walk.
I once read you can't eat away your troubles. And that is so true. For so many of us we are afraid to go through the emotions, but trust me, the more you go through them, you develop coping skills so that the next time you want to turn to food you don't need to. You will have developed a plan to deal with life's ups and downs and unfortunately the only way to learn this is having to go through the rough times. But look how much you will change!
You can do this!
