Hanging in there...

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

I am having a rough time. And where does the time go? I can't believe it's been two months (+) since I've blogged. No movement, no progress, some slipping re: weight loss (minor but still -- the struggle). I've been weepy and not feeling supported. Rather I should say, not as supported as I felt by my Dad. His birthday (August 7th) still has me missing him more than other times. The grief cycle. I know it's not unusual, it just hurts. I've been cheating (alot) with Cheetos (my comfort food). I do appreciate the support and community I feel here. I need to get back on track and stay there.

    Special days like your dad's birthday will probably always be rather emotional times for you. You're going to think about him and how much you miss him. Knowing that special days are going to depress you, try to think of a way to change your thought pattern and make that day joyous again. Celebrate what a great dad you had; so many aren't as bless to have even known someone like him.

    Try to limit your portions of Cheetos; take out a serving and put the rest of the package away, making sure you don't get it out again. Let the words of your dad run through your thoughts; he was and can still be your supporter and encourager!

    Dr. D, I'm sorry you have been having a rough time! It's not easy losing a loved one. I guess we have to expect we will have our ups and downs. Sometimes, we comfort ourselves with food. Don't be too hard on yourself! It makes it worse for me when I am. I hope you are feeling encouraged soon. I'm sure your dad would want to see you doing well. I know we can't help the way we feel though. Do something nice for yourself...a pedicure perhaps? Blessings to you, Jem
