Be your best friend

Thursday, December 26, 2013

So yesterday was my first day of tracking, and I didn't do great. I didn't' do awful either, so I'm not going to beat myself about it, but I had to get in here and write it down.
Write it down, they said.
It's gonna be good for you, they said.
So here I am, writing.

Today is the 4th year anniversary of my mom's death. And today my little girl is exactly one month old.
So today is a happy day... and a Sad day. And I think yesterday evening I was pretty emotional, and that's the reason why I overate.
But hey, it's Christmas. We're not having all those sweet treats stacking on our shelves all the year around.
Yesterday, I also found I did ended up with a couple of stretch marks I had not seen on my belly... that didn't help with my mood at all.

So I'm doing this exercise:
What would you tell a friend in your situation?

"Come on!
You just gave birth a month ago and you barely have any tummy! Besides, the massive cleavage you're carrying around will totally play as a diversion for those tinny 3 marks you've got bellow your belly button. Give yourself some time and cut yourself some slack.
In a couple of months, you won't even remember feeling like this.
Your are going to be just fine :)"

    i can understand what it is like to lose a loved one around christmas time. i lost my husband five years ago, just after christmas and i still get sad sometimes at this time of the year. i would tell my friend that it is okay to get sad when you have lost a loved one and that your body will be alright. congratulations on having a baby!that is an amazing and wonderful thing to experience. you can do this! you are worth it!
