Sold! Now what?

Saturday, June 29, 2013

3:30am on Saturday morning and I'm wide awake. Our house has been on the market for almost a year, and yesterday we got an offer that should work out. Selling has been the most emotional, stressful process. We had it sold once before ($20K higher) but the buyers financing fell through. This time the buyers have cash and a quick closing so we are OK taking less. Anyway, now that I have what I've been wishing, praying, dreaming about for a what?

I think life keeps finding ways of telling me to learn to roll with the punches. I like to feel in control, and to plan out my life. When I feel out of control I get anxious and turn to food. I am going into this stage of my house selling and buying journey knowing (finally) that this will be a trigger for me. That I have to stay conscious about what and why I am eating, and make sure I stay the course in my weight loss journey.

I am so excited this early morning to think that our house might really be sold. I'm trying to look at the next step as a new adventure. Who knows where we'll end up, but I know it will be right where we are supposed to be.

Thanks for listening Spark Peeps! Enjoy your weekend!

    What a great feeling! Knowing that this is finally going to happen and also knowing what your reaction to it might be. It sounds like you are already ahead of the game on this by knowing it is a trigger. Just hang in there and stay in the moment!! Stay aware of your emotions and above all, through all the craziness have some healthy snacks and foods on hand so when things get nutty you dont just go off the deep end. I so need to practice what I preach because I know this is a big key to things. Good luck and keep sparking so you get the support you need through this! I know you all support me!

    emoticon on selling the house and good luck from here. Just live moment by moment and take control of your eating. There is the control we should strive for...what we put in our mouths. Maybe changing your mindset to "control" what you eat will help you feel in control.

    Yay again for selling your house.

    emoticon , both on selling your house and knowing that it could be an emotional trigger. Watch your portions and track every day. Look at the selling of your house as a controlled move and it might help.
