14 years is too long

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

14 years ago today we lost my dad. He did at the age of 49 - leaving us - his children - fatherless at the ages of 24, 18, and 10. I always stress eat around this time of year - and last night was no exception, but at least it was only a short period of time - where before I would have drowned my sorrows with food for a week. I am sure he would prefer that next year I celebrate his life and passing with healthy food and a healthy life - LOVE YOU DADDY!!!!

    I'm sorry for your loss. I tend to get very emotional around Mother's Day since my mom left while I was younger. I would emo eat and then Bach myself for it, and continue the awful cycle. This year I am making sure that I keep my emotions in front of me so that if I slip (and its ok if I do), it is not a horrendously days long type of thing like in the past.

    I'm proud of you for noticing the slip, but the stopping it from getting an worse. That is HUGE! I am proud of you.

    Your dad is proud of you NOW. I just know it.
    And next year will be even better.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I know how you feel, it seems like no matter how much time has passed, things will never be the same. Everybody deals with it in their own way, just remember there are so many great things in life and so many things to be thankful for, enjoy them! emoticon
