Done eating through the pain!

Saturday, July 06, 2013

The last two weeks have been rough on me.My 18 year old daughter, decided to tell me that she has a boyfriend.I know I should have expected it etc. it's not that, it's that she started coming home late, has me worried about her etc. It seems like all I can do is go back to my very bad habits. It's a good thing I go to the gym so I don't gain a ton of weight, but I still do gain weight.
This morning I had a talk with myself and said, self that's it you're done paying the price with food, so done. You work out blog out your emotions and work out again and blog again, whatever it takes , but do not EAT unhealthy!

So here I am saying I'm worried about my kid , want the best for her I love her, but I can't eat over the pain,any one else out there do the same?

I figure I can't be doing this alone!???There must be others who eat their pain, emotions etc.

Hope I get back on track, it's been tough! emoticon

    We never stop worrying about our children, no matter how old they are. Thankfully I'm a grandma now, and I love every bit of it.

    I do the same thing. My daughter is a trigger for me too. She moved back in with me last fall (She's 23), and since she's been here, I've gained back 7 of the 18 pounds I lost last year. Just as you worry about the late hours your daughter is keeping, I worry about the life choices my daughter keeps making which leave her with her only options being homelessness or moving back in with me. We both deserve better self care than the emotional eating. Let's work on that! emoticon

    emoticon I feel your pain as I do the same thing. I'm an emotional eater and that's the worse for me. I'm doing just like you are...using everything I can to replace the food such as writing, reading, calling friends, emailing friends, exercising....whatever it takes to get through the cravings to anesthetize myself with food. Keep doing what you're doing. emoticon
