One day at a time, one step at a time...Congrats on the strength you're showing!
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I too run for the sugary sweets mainly pastries when I'm stressed or extremely emotional. I am hoping to reduce this a lot this Winter. I'm telling my self that eating like that is not going to help with the person I want to be a year from now.. Paula~

Best of luck with your son and the trigger feelings! I crave sugar. I just had an orange but sometimes you just want the real thing. Luckily it is very cold here so not tempting enough to go get something today.
I have realized that when I am having uncomfortable feelings I run for sugar. I have tried to not have it and just wait, but then I feel like I am not soothing myself, I'm just making it worse (that's what my head tells me anyway). I know better. I know I am not being mean by denying myself 10 sugar cookies because I am having problems sleeping or stress. This week and next are extremely stressful for me as I wait for my 15-yr old to go to surgery. I am already fighting walking into a Dunkin Donuts (so far so good). I am hoping I can last long enough that I start feeling better and that it is easier. I am seriously struggling to find better ways to deal with my feelings. It is very hard.
