Anxiety Attack and trying not to eat

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

emoticonI sometimes eat when I am stressed out. I am very stressed out because I have to have a biopsy today. I got up early this morning because I was worried. So, I went down to the pool early, did exercises around the pool and then got in and water jogged when Rosie got there.

emoticonWhen I came upstairs from swimming and jogging I wanted to eat a bunch but instead I fixed myself a piece of steamed fish, peeled an orange and toasted some whole wheat reduced calorie bread. I focused on eating what was right. I knew if I had oatmeal or eggs I was going to eat again within 10 minutes so I fixed something that would feel more substantial.
I drank very slow, ate all my breakfast and took all my vitamins, yes even my fish oil.

emoticonThen I got a call from the company who is getting my new mattress and talked about inner springs versus foam. They are delivering my new inner spring mattress after 3:00 p.m. today. What a change it will be to sleep on a new mattress I've needed one for about a year. Woo Hoo! I should sleep great tonight. emoticon

emoticonNow, I'm going to get dressed and get ready for my 1:30 appointment for my biopsy. Hopefully all will turn out well.

    You did a great job of not stress-eating. I have a problem with it too. I hope you get negative results (nothing wrong) on your biopsy and that you sleep well on the new mattress.

    I'm not sure I'd have been as strong as you were on the food front. Having a biopsy is pretty scary, but you were able to deal with it without using food to stuff it down. Proud of you for dealing with it. I hope that your biopsy goes well and comes back clear.

    Sounds like you handled the eating very well, Take ome deep breaths and keep calm, and sounds like your new mattress is going to be nice

    Way to push through the urge to stress eat! That is impressive and you should be very proud of yourself. Good luck at your biopsy today hope all turns out well.
