Emotions Lately

Sunday, August 11, 2013

I have kind of slipped off the bandwagon, but still ended up losing 12 lbs :)

The problem is that despite the weight loss I am eating all the wrong foods. I eat when I am emotional. I have had a rough year, having the man I loved walk out on me last October. The relationship had been rocky from the very beginning. When he left, he went to Canada and did not have proper paperwork and is facing deportation. I had so many questions about things, and I wake up with the reality that he is gone, and I am heartbroken. I broke up with guys before, but this one was different.

But I know that I cannot let myself end up in an early grave. I just need support and encouragement.

    I can almost feel your heartbreak. Surround yourself with happy photos (but not of him), eat well, sleep as well as you are able. Give yourself time to get your balance back.

Have you tried writing down your anger and frustration. Don't hold it in. Purge those negative feelings.

We are out here for you!

    My daughter went through a terrible breakup a few years ago. She thought her world had ended and went through some very tough times. She even went to a therapist for a bit to get back on track. She is now engaged and planning her wedding. Let yourself grieve and then move on. We never know what's on the other side.

    Another is to marry a guy who can eat and drink everything, fattening or not, and never gain a pound. Then you retain your baby fat after the baby is born. Just doesn't make for a fun time in Whosville.

I hope you will be able to gain your self-worth. There's a great guy out there, just waiting to find you and feel danged glad to have a gal as precious as you.

    Hang in there, girlfriend, and find the person you plan on being. That's what is important.

    I joined SP after a heart wrenching breakup myself. But I only really started using it since I have healed from it. Now, I am doing things I was never able to do with him-- including making time for myself to workout and eating healthier instead of eating junk with him all the time.

It takes time to get to this place, I know. But try to focus on all you can do now! Everything that you can do for yourself that makes you happy-- what you weren't doing with him.

    I've been there, done that. You will survive - you have all of us to talk to to get through it. I learned that I have to stay busy when I feel like that: clean, walk, visit others, volunteer, whatever! Sending prayers and best wishes your way.
