l\Life ain't easy

Monday, December 23, 2013

If I could only grab a pint of Rocky Road ice cream, I would. Today life has gotten the best of me and I'm tired of fighting. First my car was broken into and the window and door were damaged. Next my power steering hose had to be replaced. Now today I take my son and granddaughter to the doctor and when we come out my car wont crank. Tis the season to be jolly, NOT! So for 3 days, my car has to sit in a parking lot until I can buy a new battery and have it installed. Hell, with my luck it's more than the battery or my car will get towed.

I'm so depressed and I know that I am an emotional eater. I wish everyday that I have not decided to move here. Moving here is what spiraled my weight out of control again. I think what hurts the most is knowing how close I am to losing control, grabbing ice cream and a bag of chips and having a good long cry.

I've only lost 6 lbs. since I began my journey on December 1, 2013 but it means so much more to me. And here is this mess and the only way I know how to cope is to eat and cry when I know I shouldn't. I can usually see the positive in most things but not this time. It's hopeless!

    You've lost a lot of weight since December 1st. I would not say "only." That is one thing you've got going for you - terrific results. Hang on and you'll keep getting support. Through the months and years you'll learn a new way to deal with the rough spots in life.

Don't despair. Things will get better. I just wish I could do more for you. If you can make it through this, you can do anything.

    I'm sorry you are going through this. It sure seems like everything is hitting at once. I do hope it gets easier for you. I know life is hard, really hard. Sometimes when I get so overwhelmed by life that I can hardly cope, I think, "Life sucks. But, the alternative is worse." I know it is a kinda course statement, but it helps me put things in better perspective.

Hang in there!

    Have a good long cry - you deserve it. Its OK. Then push the crap asside and focus on what matters. It will work out. I truely believe it. I have been down so low I thought I would never see the sun again. But you are here - with us - and that makes you strong. emoticon

  I can relate because I am an emotional eater also. Try to think on the positive side. Make a commitment to yourself that you can cope without over eating. It is a challenge, but we can do it!!!
