Daughter's Decision Made

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

My daughter and her family have come to a decision. They have decided to take the job, have my daughter rent a room for the 3 days a week she will be out of town, give it 6 months to see how she likes it and decide what to do about moving at that time. I thank God for their decision and for the ability I had to sit back and not interfere. I thank all my SP friends for the support and encouragement you gave me yesterday while this dilemma was working its way out. I didn't even think of turning to food one time. I ate the way I've been learning to eat and I didn't think anything of it. Food is essential for nutrition but not for emotional support! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon Not only did you not interfere in a very important decision they needed to make on their own, but you looked to Sp for support and you took control over your nutrietional life as well. Job Well Done!

    You have more self control than I did yesterday. I ate the way I had learned to eat, but I didn't keep my mouth shut with my daughter. She bought the house I tried to talk her out of, because it meant she would be back in the same city as I am instead of 3 hours away.

    Doesn't it feel great to finally be in control of food instead of food being in control of you. You have passed a true test. Good job! Lorraine
