Weight=inside out stress

Friday, June 10, 2016

My sister has her consult with the surgeon next week! It has taken 4 months to get here. I don't know when her surgery will be scheduled but hopefully, it won't be too much longer. :)

It's a good day but I have not felt well lately. My entire body feels sore like someone punched me all over the place and I'm so exhausted. My thyroid levels always come back normal. I have an appointment on Monday so I will address it then. It's NOT the flu.

I read comments on a poll the other day. It was about judging other people's grocery carts and most people say they do judge. It's insane that people on a site that is aimed at being supportive would do that but we live in a harsh, judge mental world so what are we going to do? I'm just sticking to minding my own business.

I feel like there are people who slip into unhealthy habits, get on track and stay fit for life and some of them judge others for not doing what they need to do.

Then there are people who slip, try, slip, try, slip, try and it's a cycle because they have an Eating disorder and are recovering from it. People think eating the wrong things or too much of something is laziness but it is a million times more complicated. It's funny that any Eating disorder that is associated with weight gain is tied to laziness but eating disorders tied with excessive weight loss are an illness.

There are thin people who are compulsive eaters or binge eaters so what people are judging is not the eating disorder but the weight.

Personally, I think for a lot people, weight is just inside out stress. Overweight people wear their stress, anxiety, depression on their bodies.

It takes time to learn new coping mechanisms and it takes time to make changes. People can still buy a cake for a birthday party and they shouldn't have to get loud eye rolls for that.

Keep going. Whether you struggle due to medical issues, disordered eating, plain bad habits, or a combination of things, just keep trying and let people roll their eyes. Remember what our moms said, their eyes are going to get stuck thst say someday! Haha.

Today, I mostly made good choices so I'm happy. :)

    Regarding the poll, I just wonder if the word "judge" is too harsh. I DO notice what is in other people's carts,
    and I see others look in mine.

    I'm sorry you're feeling so poorly! Hope that goes away real soon.
