Hello all you lovely Sparkpeople, whom I dearly love and respect. I was so proud of myself, finding what works for me. You were all very generous with your awesome comments, singing my praises, it was great! I love you and thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I don't want to say I blew it, but, I am disappointed in myself. I could not physically manage only 20 g of carbs, so I had to increase it a little, which is fine I know. I found myself with very low blood sugar, and that did not feel very good.
But, the thing that really got me last night, was the big "S". Yes, STRESS! Boy, stress really does a job on us, doesn't it? It messes with our minds, eating habits, temper, and our emotional well being.
Last night the stress got to me. I ate carbs, I was an emotional wreck, I cried myself to sleep, and I woke up sad and lonely. Lonely, in a house of five. That's sad.
And then I went directly to the computer onto Sparkpeople and then to Sparkcoach, and the topic of today was Emotional Eating. It's strange, but whatever is going on in my life, when I come on to SP there is a discussion about the same things I am feeling. Does that make any sense. I hope so. Because it amazes me.
I have found that this is a place I can go and not really escape, per say, but I can release all my feelings and emotions, all my fears, all my setbacks, and so on and NEVER be judged. That is a wonderful feeling. I can be myself.
Thank you all you AWESOME Sparkpeople.
