Stress ate.

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Today I found out my dad likely needs another vein surgery on his leg. He had a bypass about two years ago, and while this surgery isn't supposed to be as invasive or taxing it still really scares me. After his appointment we got breakfast and I ended up with a platter. Fried eggs, two sausage patties, fried potatoes, toast. I didn't eat the toast and tossed half of the potatoes, so it wasn't totally terrible and I can be proud that I had SOME self control. I wish I had picked a healthier option in the first place though. I felt bad and wanted to eat fried stuff to feel better. Uuugh. I'm working on that because food shouldn't be a crutch.

Anyways, just wanted to vent a little. Hope everyone is having a good day.

    I think you did pretty well! When I stress it it's usually a whole jar of peanut butter or something.

    I tend to have one of 2 reaction to stress.. eat TOO MUCH or not at all. Neither are healthy. Good for you for recognizing your decision. Prayers for u :)
