I received a comment on my blog that was GENIUS! Just what I needed to ask myself to give myself strength when fighting emotional eating- I call it emo eating.
How will getting fat (again) help?
WOW POWERFUL! I thought about the situations that are getting me down and none of them would be easier if I gained weight. They would be harder. Why? Because I recently regained my ability to walk and my freedom from a wheelchair. I need to stay thinner to take care of myself and my husband, whether he has cancer or not. I just now started working again and I need to stay mobile to do that. I do SparkPeople Rallies and I REALLY enjoy that part of my life. That too would go away of I got fat again. So everything I have worked so hard for= a life, would go away of I got fat again and I would once again lie in my bed waiting to die. Not going to happen.
SO WHAT IS IT YOU WANT MORE THAN FOOD?
I went back to thank the person for their comment, and the comment was either gone, or I couldn't find it. So thank you and all of the rest of you who said prayers, offered advice and care. I know I communicate in blogs most of the time, rather than individually. That's because I care about so many of you and I just don't have time to write each of you. I also want to encourage anyone and everyone who may happen across my blogs. My dream is that my blogs reach people in bed, just like I was, bedridden, who feel hopeless, and they learn that they too can do something... maybe not everything. Something is always better than nothing.
I feel lifted up and strong today! Woohoo! Let's do this!
