Support Cookies

Saturday, June 03, 2017

I've had a rough week. A rotten, taxing, marathon of a week that involved evaluating my career path and relying on loved ones for support. But I've tracked all my food, exercised comfortably and tried to take care of myself. I'm still anxious about going back to work Monday. I'm worried and tired and feeling a bit lonely.
There is a lot of change in the air for myself and lots of the people that I care about and that makes me uneasy. But I have been able to eat well and take care of myself.
A pair of dear friends took me to lunch and made me cookies. And I ate those cookies and enjoyed their company and care. I am trying very hard to eat like a "normal" person. A person who doesn't have emotionally related food issues. But there is no way I was going to reject their comfort and love just because it was wrapped up in food.
I struggle with an all or nothing approach to dieting. Either I'm perfect or I say to hell with it and comfort eat with abandon. A billion people have said this before, but I am trying my best to find balance.

    I like how you mention balance. That is also what im looking for. Food is such a big part of my support circle and how we express caring. I havent been put in a position quite yet where it was offered as a source of comfort but Im sure its coming.

    I know it's not easy. I have the same Win it or Screw It personality.

    For me, Balance comes one battle at a time and takes copious amounts of positive self-talk.

    Stick with it and you will figure out what works for you.
