sadness & stress

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Sadness & Stressful situations are NOT a friend to losing weight, at least not for me. Some people don't eat if they are sad or stressed. I seem to eat for every reason.. Happy, Sad, Stressed, Relaxed, Social, all alone... it's never ending. I guess I could say... living LIFE just makes me eat :-)

Tonight, I'm sad. My blended family crap really sucks sometimes. I mean... seriously, should we still be walking on egg shells and doing whatever makes his ex not have a melt down just because no one wants to deal with her drama? I thought at some point, people would just speak the truth, come what may of her drama and eventually she'd be forced to "get it" and realize her behaviors don't get the response they once got. She'd realize the world does not revolve around her.... but I suppose tonight I'm forced to understand that her drama is STILL scarier than not doing what keeps her 'ok' than anyone else's feelings. I've been living this stress for 7 years. Used it too many times as an excuse to go stuff the comfort food.... Instead, tonight, I'll just blah blah blahhhh here and I guess just hope that no one I "really" know sees it. Oh well.... at least I'm not eating. Just another reminder that no separation is far enough when it comes to her.... and we won't allow more "reasons" in the future. Sigh... at least I'm not eating. I will remind myself that will just make me feel worse. I must lose this weight and get healthier. My blood pressure if high. I'm not sure if it's because of my weight or what but it must come down or Dr will want to put me on blood pressure meds. Well, thanks for listening and if by chance, as you read this you are sad or stressed... Hang in there! You are not alone. We will not turn to the poor habits that drag us down and add to our problems. We will keep choosing health and build the correct boundaries. Thanks for listening. I will go surf some web pages and try to smile. I usually smile a lot. Tonight.. it's just piling know how that happens. Not the one thing today but just the years of dealing with something I thought would get better or would be cut off... life goes on....

    I find that journalling helps a lot in dealing with tough situations. It's a great way to release emotions safely. I don't know if you journal, but it might help. Just a thought....
