Stress eating - Mom's passing

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I didn't know I react this way. My mother's passing on Monday has kept me busy, yes, I get that, but the stress eating ..... Well, I know enough to not beat myself up over that, and I still have a few days away from home before I can get back on the program. It's been rugged. The grief comes in waves. Sometimes tears, sometimes laughing over good times remembered. Food is everywhere, from the neighbors, from friends, fried chicken and biscuits, chocolate cream pies, cheese cakes. At least I didn't have to cook. With 4 brothers, I felt I was stepping into mom's shoes. She was quite a lady. She will be sorely missed. I know she would encourage me to be healthy and not allow myself to overeat and eat all the wrong foods. On the other hand, she would understand the situation and wouldn't want me to feel bad that I haven't had the right food around. Life does have it's challenges, doesn't it?

  I'm sorry to read about your loss. Losing a loved one isn't easy, especially a parent. Take time for yourself and soon you'll be able to get back on track.

    emoticon the losing of someone close to us is really difficult and you will be going through a lot of emotions and sometimes, eating is a way of giving our minds comfort since it is a mindless activity

with time things will get better and you an refocus on your weight loss goals

    No one is blameing you for eating in this time of loss. When you are ready start over and get back on the plan. I am sorry for your loss.
