I feel like Ms Piggy

Friday, February 17, 2012

Hi All,

I feel like ms piggy. Do I look like her No!!! I realize I am a body image problem and it is working on my last nerve.

So what am I going to do about this??? Well I am going to workout with few clothes on in front of a mirror. emoticon Right I don't think so,

Or I can pray and ask for help and still workout with all my clothes on.

I am going to look at my old pictures and see how far I have come. Not how far I have to go.. The glass half full not half empty.

I grow up poor and no food. When I get that feeling on being empty in my stomach I feel bad unhappy like I did when I was a kid.

I am not a kid so I want to feel safe when I feel the feeling of hunger. I am going to explore this issue more. I realize this maybe a block in my way I have never given any thought of.

I am spending a busy weekend with DH and MSL who lives on the 3rd of our rental property. We are building shelves and making closet space. fun fun

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

    I know what you mean by growing up poor and not having enough to eat at times, mine was being in boarding schools where they fed us very little and when on holidays we would overeat. I am trying to use the idea of having too much and great many choices in a positive way. Like I can have it any time I want but I will wait since no one is going to take this cake, fruit or candy away. Or I can have a second helping but I am full now and It is mine any time I want it. I am also writing it down. Because when I look back at what I ate, it makes readjust and re-evaluate why I am eating when I am not hungry.
Exploring feeling will help you come up with a healthy out look at yourself and why you do things you.
You are doing a wonderful job at taking care of #1.
Keep it up because you are worth it.

    I know the feeling of growing up poor and I think it is one of the reasons I always make sure there is food in the pantry my son teases me about shopping at mom's since I have enough for a large family and it is only my husband and I now at home. Good luck with those image issues. emoticon

    Good to explore those feelings why we feel the way we do. Food can be very comforting so it's often an emotional crutch we use to make ourselves feel loved/secure, etc. If you grew up feeling empty/hungry and now you want to replace that empty feeling. Pray about it. God will help you feel filled up inside and won't need food to fill the void. I joined a SP team called Jesus Girls Made to Crave. There is a great book/workbook too and it helps people work through emotional issues/cravings and replace that emptiness with God's love. Be blessed, sister! I'll pray for you, too. emoticon

    I think that any of us who have had to do without have that fear deep in us. Keep remembering how far you have come.
It sounds like you had a fun day planned. Enjoy!

    Dont be so hard on yourself about your body (someone once told me) Like you said-Look how far you've come. Will we ever like our own body- I doubt it but just do the right things (eating & working out) and we might be able to tolerate it a little better. Have a good weekend!!

My Cat of twenty years has passed.

Saturday, February 11, 2012

My cat (of 20 cat life and 91years human) has past. He died in our bed while he slept next to us. We new he was dying however. I am filled with grief. He looked so peaceful like he was a slept.

I am ok I just look in the corner of my eye and he is not there. I am sad however I can accept it. I will accept it. My DH buried my cat in a box in the back yard we said a few words.

    So sorry about your cat. You must have really looked after him well, as he lived such a long life. I have two 11 year old and I hope they manage to live to that grand old age. The pic is lovely,
Best wishes

    Oh, I'm so sorry for your loss... Losing a pet can be quite hard, and when they've been around for 20 years, that's like losing a family member!! I find it very touching that you guys were able to keep him at your side, exactly where he wanted to be, while he passed. That took alot of inner strength, and I applaud you guys for that... I hope your mourning will pass soon enough. Cherish the memories and the love in your heart forever, and forget about the sorrow... If you need anything, we're all here for you!

    Im so sorry for your loss. He was beautiful. I've had a couple make it to 14-15 years. One of my favorite clients had a cat named Alaska that made it to 22. It's hard to get used to them not being there. Although there have been times I could swear they were still around.

To lose a beloved pet is like losing one of our kids.

    Awwww I'm so sorry for the loss of your family member! emoticon
At least you know he passed close to people who loved him and wasn't alone, in that you can take some comfort......
He gave you 20 yrs of memories, that's a lot of years try and remember all the good times you've shared and know he's in a better place now....

    Thanks for the message on my sparkpage. I had a very great time being butterflies team ML and I have really benefited a great deal. I have found things about myself did not think were possible for me.
I am sure the energy of the teams and the other leader helped me maintain the momentum.
So let us keep moving every day is an opportunity to live a better life.
Never say I can not always say "I am capable of more"
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
