Today I am blogging as a way to express some of the feelings I have about the passing of a dear friend. She is the mother of my best friend. She has only days left and my Bestie is leaving tomorrow (we are roommates also). We are all severely stressed. I want to stress eat my comfort foods. All those involved family and friends are dearly loved so my heart is hurting for them. I know that all will pass, but the loss of someone close rocks your world. And being close but not one of the family hurting I feel helpless to do or say the right thing to help. I am doing my best to be there for them.

So all this stress is making staying on my program so hard. I want to say I don't care this is more important. I know that is hurting me so I am truly struggling to do the best for me so I can do the best for those i love. How do you over come the strong urges to comfort eat anything especially things that are old bad foods? They say willpower is a great asset to have. Right now I would love to know where to pull it from so I can stay getting healthy.

    Maybe shop or cook for them? Go for a walk?

    so very sorry for the loss of your friend ...
    When I go through struggles I know the feeling of wanting to throw it all the way ... taking care of my 93 year young mother has put me in that situation quite often ..
    I sit myself down and think of the things I CAN control and taking care of myself is one ... I may fall and stumble, but never put yourself down ... pick up and move forward .. dont look back ...
    You cant control thenpassing of your friend's mother, you cant control whether your friend stays or leaves, and as Im sure you are aware there will be other challenges that come along ... You CAN control what you eat and if you exercise ....
    Be stong my friend .... emoticon

    I didn't do that great in my time of great stress when I lost close family. I can say that just being there for your friend means so much. I think by blogging you are demonstrating some control. emoticon
