Well another day...

Monday, February 28, 2011

We went to PF Changs Saturday night with the boys and Adam was definitely off. After dinner he told me he wanted to tell Josh tonight that he is gay. So we went home and were going to start a movie and Adam asked us to start the conversation. Josh was very surprised but held up ok. I know he holds everything in usually so we will see as time goes on how he is really doing. Adam I think is happy that he knows. I'm amazed that Adam is doing so well at 15 going through all he is. He told us that only one boy in his freshman class is out and he is a jerk. He really is. We know him from elementary school and he made Adams life miserable. Adam really wants to date though. I know he is 15 but he really needs to focus on school and the dating will happen later. Our friend Mike said Adam needs to chill a bit and let everything sit for a while and work on school. He said this can be family business for now. I asked him to wait to see Karen his therapis before he tell kids at school. We will see. For me, my eating has been pretty good this weekend. I'm not sure why I have control of it right now. My exercise was awesome this week. It felt great to be back on schedule with it. I'm going to a dance class tonight and honestly can't wait already! Have a great day friends! I know a few of you have really been here for me during this transition in our family. Thank you so much for your guidence and support. I know its a process and I thank you for being here for me.

    I had to go back in your posts to see what was going on. My goodness! You have been through the wringer! I mean, I as a parent would be just as upset, scared, sad, insecure of the future holds.

You did the right things it seems.

Getting a therapist. Researching and learning at how to deal with the whole situation.

I do hope that you get Josh some therapy too. He is going to need it. When things become more open, he may not know how to handle this.

You are a loving parent, that is blessed with a supportive husband.

My heart goes out to you during all of this.

Keep up taking care of yourself during all of this, you have come far and you will again. Just by reading on what you have managed in the past...You are strong.

Take care.

My eating is bad

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Wow hanging out with the trigger foods this weekend. I'm just pulling them all out. Bagels, cookies crackers. Holy cow just going for it. I did have an awesome work out on Thursday. Omg loved it. I am going to the gym this morning. I'm just overwhelmed by my food choices. Completely off the mark. I had one and half cookies for breakfast. I'm Sparking like crazy. Messageboards, articles, I know I'm not tracking but would you want to if you were doing what I am doing.

    That sounds like me.....but I always have good intentions in the morning when I am making out my meal plan for the day ...then half way into the day it gets all screwed up....and I am hating myself at the end of the day, cause I didn't have the will power to just say NO and eat the right foods instead....I can't even lose 5 pounds this time...what is wrong with me???? I have lost 20 in the past and felt GRrrrr-ate !!! but now, I am more frustrated then ever!! I have got to get back on the ball and stick to my meal plans every day no matter what I am doing, where I am at, or how I am feeling at that time..... You go girl....I am with U 100%.....maybe together keeping an eye on one-another we can lose some more!!!

    No, I wouldn't. How about not tracking on Spark and just writing down on a little journal for a while. Then when you are ready to start finding out just how many calories you're putting in. Use the tracker.

As hard as this seems, don't buy the bagels, cookies and stuff. I go to the store and I think to myself, next time. I'm not perfect, but I have found that if those temptations aren't in the house, I have to find something else to eat.

Once again inspired by friends

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Well friends you did it again! I came to Spark this morning to blog and just felt like I was going to whine through the entire blog. I thought no one wants to read my complaints again. So I decided to check out the blogs my friends have posted. I started smiling almost immediately. :) My friends have a way of bringing me out of my little world and help me focus on the big picture. I thank you all for that. Now I'm not saying there won't ever be a whine here or there and am glad to see a bit of it on your blogs. I think its necessary to be honest so we can help ourselves throught the tough stuff. But I feel sometimes stuck in the mess of life instead of moving forward. So thank you again!

Busy day yesturday

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Wow, saw my therapist yesturday, brought Adam to his, he had his first practice with the new band he is in. Adam would like Mike to be with us when we tell Josh. I told my husband and he thinks maybe he should tell Josh himself. I'm kinda confused by this. I'm going to ask Mike about it. My parents will be away for a couple weeks so this is a good time to get this out. It will give Josh time to adjust before my conservative parents are around alot. Adam's therapist says how great he is doing and I'm so glad. I still have moments. I feel better about my eating the past few days. I'm grateful for this. Thanks for being here.


Hi friends!

I had a very nice day yesturday. I went to Vermont with my great friend and the boys. I love that even though they are teenagers they still love our little traditions. Drove to Manchester, had favorite sandwich at Zoey's resturant, drove to Arlington for amazing fudge at the Village Peddler and headed home to watch a movie with their favorite honorary aunt :). Now I know what your thinking. Those were not good food choices but they were great foods for the soul. I had a very busy day today and ate very healthy in the process. Have a great night!
