Well had to blog twice today...

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

So went to the therapist today for the first time. I guess I can tell my Spark friends that my son has come out to us that he is gay. He is doing ok and now we just need guidence on how properly to handle all this. Our son is 15, our younger son is 13. We need to figure out how to tell him. I talked to the therapist about this today. I feel a bit better. It is a process. Thanks for being here for me.

    from the outside looking in, and from someone who lives in Los Angeles, I have to wonder why it's such a big deal? I mean, he's gay, but it's not like he's dying, or he's contagious, or he's going to burst into flames. It just means he loves in a different way.

I was a surrogate twice for a gay couple. They have two healthy girls that they're raising. The only difference between those two guys and any other couple is that they wanted to be parents more. They had to jump through serious hoops, pay out money, go though legal processes, just to do something that two drunk teenagers can do by accident.

Being gay is not a bad thing. It's not something you should worry about telling your younger son, or something that your older son should be ashamed of. Just explain that you love your older son for who he is, no matter what, and that acceptance should filter down to your younger son.

Feel free to message me if you need support on this.

So busy day today... sometimes a very good thing...

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Bringing the dog to the groomer, having coffee with my friend, going to therapist for the first time and son is getting out of school early today. Busy but awesome because I won't have much time to binge. I'd like to get on the treadmill later in the day since I can't get to the gym. That is my goal.


Well got through the weekend...

Monday, January 24, 2011

Omg so much stress this weekend. Wow, parenting is sooooo hard sometimes. Teenagers are amazing. So we made it through this crazy weekend. No major damage done. Thank God. I meet with my new therapist tomorrow. I pray she is helpful. I didn't binge this weekend. Yeah for that! We went to nyc over night and had plenty of opportunities too. I was home all day today and did eat every calorie I was allowed but didn't go over it. I'm going to the gym tonight. I can't wait to go dance some stress away. :) Thanks for staying with me on this journey.

  Great job not bingeing when you've had such a stressful time! Sounds like you are taking wonderful care of yourself by finding a therapist and going to your dance class. Enjoy and have a wonderful night!

So worried about getting ready to binge bad!

Friday, January 21, 2011

I have so much stress going on right now. I've done soooo well at not binging because of it. Lately though I feel it in the back of my mind. Just like a drug addict. I feel it saying, boy that bagel would taste great, or boy it would feel so good to have ( insert trigger food here). I'm knowledgable of this happening. For over a year now I haven't even thought about these foods. The stress is getting to me. I joined the stress buster challenge. I am doing the work. I also have an appointment with a therapist on Tuesday. I pray she is going to be helpful. So I'm here acknologing the thoughts of binging. I'm doing the work but need to be accountable.

Well my baby turned 13!!!!!!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

I now officially have 2 teenagers in the house. My 13 year old has no idea yet of the situation we are dealing with. I'm glad. I'm seeing my therapist for the first time next Tuesday. I'll be so happy to get there. I'm going to the gym today and also have lunch with a girlfriend for her birthday. It should be a good day. I'm going to really work on eating perfect for the next week. I just can't lose this last jean size since being on prednisone. It''s sooooo frustrating.
