Weigh In Wednesday

I know it’s Thursday. This crisis with my father has escalated–he’s still in the hospital, and I’ve spent hours and days trying to find a new housing situation for him that will get him closer to me. My efforts to eat better and be more active have crumbled in recent days. I’ve been eating pizza and drinking for stress reduction and generally not sticking with the program. Yesterday I weighed in at 162.5–one half pound down from last Wednesday. I know it’s important when you need to take care of someone else to take care of yourself first. It’s just a hard principle to put into practice. I’m going to keep trying.

    Hang in there. Survival mode happens. And, sometimes a stiff drink and restaurant food is a way of taking care of yourself.

      Thanks! It’s true that everyone needs a glass of wine and takeout. I just need to keep aware of what I’m doing and why.

    big hug, and go easy on yourself. and also maybe eat a peach or some cherries and some water with that pizza. will keep an eye out for places in the neighborhood, too.

      Thanks, Katie. Water and pizza is a good combo. I need to get to the markets and stock up on some good fruit. Thanks for keeping an eye peeled for us.
