Janet, are you stressed? (yes)
Is your life out of control? (hell, yes)
Are you eating without being hungry just because you feel like eating? (duh...)
There is a plan for you!
Right underneath your fingertips on your keyboard.
All you need to do is use it! (easier said than done)
Early last fall, the digital scale at the gym read 200.6. Things were somewhat optimistic around here at the time.
Yesterday my home dial-up hit 219; give or take 2 pounds.
I've earned every one of those pounds by epitomizing the emotional eating genre. I've realized that lately, when in Somnia, I have been having first breakfast around 2 AM and gladly joining the rest of the world for more later. I'm back to not sleeping well and it's getting annoying.
I'm not shoving food in my gullet in great quantities, I've returned to all my banned foods. I've stopped measuring and planning. When I think DH needs to eat, I eat too. (If I eat it will he eat it to please me?)
I'm the matriarch of the "OMG, what else could go wrong?" family. I keep them all in order by being optimistic. I get my strength from helping the rest of them, perhaps because if they're not in good shape, who will help me when it's my turn? I'm in the middle of determining something discovered in my shoulder MRI that shouldn't have been there. Crap.
DH keeps smiling and telling me it's ok.
He's not wearing my jeans which have become tight in the calves, again.
OK, I'm buying the product.
Now that the baby has arrived, there will be more order to things.
I like order.
This morning after a drug induced sleep I purged my refrigerator and cabinets. I will plan meals over the next several days and starting Monday, I'll follow the plan.
I'll now return to my previously scheduled life.
Hopefully making a plan.
