Good for you! Isn't it annoying when these sort of things happen? Something similar happened to us and our first-born back in the 70s and I stood my ground. I wasn't going to let someone smoke pot in our home when we had a new born.

Thanks!! I'm still pretty happy w/ myself for not eating my way thru it. Emotional eating is my main problem, sometimes I think I stuff my mouth to keep from saying anything that I'll regret later. I've kept my in-laws at a distance for quite some time now because they are such a huge source of tension. I think it's helped my over eating quite a bit. I'm happy that I recognised WHY I wanted to dive into some junk food and therefore didn't. I worked really hard to lose those 3lbs in August. :)

Thanks again for all the support - you guys are the greatest!!

I can do all things, through Christ, who strengthens me.

On realizing you were having a stressful, emotional moment, and not letting that drive you to eat. What the In-laws will say is nothing they haven't said before-mine talk about me all the time- better they talk about me then walk all over me.
and YAY for you for being so strong, not only to your nephew, but also your husband. Those conversations can be tough, but you son, and you should definately come first.


You did emoticon

Yesterday, my husbands nephew & his new love showed up at our house (I was the only one home) completely high on something - and completely covered (I am not exaggerating here) in pink paint (or something like paint). And they wanted to come in. I told them, "I am not letting you in my house." He of course looks at me like I hurt his feelings - w/ these puppy dog eyes - and I said - "No, you are not coming in and you need to leave." Now, I don't know about any of you and your relationship w/ your in-laws - but, in my case I'm a you-know-what if I don't cow-tow to anything they want. Well, those days have been LOOONG over, baby, and they can just tell their story walking.

But, what I need the woo-hoo for is - in the past when something like this has happened - I have eaten my way through it. Worried about what they're going to say or do etc. This time I wanted to go and eat everything - but I didn't! I just kept reminding myself how hard I've worked all month and nobody is going to upset me to the point that I sacrifice my health anymore. And today, even though I'm still upset - I have confidence that I'm not going to chow down about it.

I'm sure there is more to come - because I told my husband his nephew is not welcomed at our house. We have our child to protect. I also said that if his nephew wants to ruin his life - that's his choice - but I/we don't have to watch.

Thanks.

I can do all things, through Christ, who strengthens me.
