out of control emotional eating

Monday, September 03, 2012

after quite a struggle emotionally, we know we need to put our old dog down this week. she is now completely blind--having one eye removed 6 weeks ago & now the other eye is rapidly deteriorating and causing her pain. she can't settle down and tries to walk around at night, crashing into things. I think that she can't tell that it's nighttime, can't see us on the bed, and is trying to find us. today she turned the wrong way coming out of the kitchen, was standing in the corner of the dining room not knowing which way to go. the eye doctor believes she's having cognitive problems that aren't allowing her to adapt. so I'll call the vet first thing in the a.m..

so I've been pretty much tied to this dog's side all week and I've been eating junk by the handfuls. I've made healthy suppers and eaten all my freggies (except today). I walked two miles on Saturday and a mile today. not enough.

I know I've gained weight. I hope I don't get kicked off the BLC before I even start.

    I am so sorry, Judy. I also understand how emotional eating could get out of control at this time.

    If you were to decide to go this route, I know an absolutely phenomenal rescue organization in Morris County, which is how our George came to us.

    I'm so sorry. It's a horrible decision to have to make. emoticon
