Obstacles will ALWAYS be there. I am in a good routine of exercise and eating right and that has felt really good! Then BAM......emotional stuff with family comes up and since I am an emotional eater, my first instinct usually is to eat my way through the emotions......I am VERY happy to say...NOT THIS TIME!!!!
I cleaned, I talked and I prayed through the issue. Unfortunately, the issue is still not resolved and I will have to ride through it, but I am prepared to say ALOT of prayers through it and find other outlets to work through my emotions.
I am finding the older that I am getting, the less tolerant I am getting with people and maybe that is one thing that is helping me to not eat through the emotions this time. I see the gossip and lies as petty and immature. I want to just get away from the drama instead of allowing myself to be a part of it. The hardest part is when it is family, how do you remove yourself from it.
I am pretty proud of myself that I have found a strength in myself to not allow my emotions to take over and not to punish myself with eating! It feels good!
This too shall pass and I will become a stronger person because of it!
