Okay my Spark Friends I really need help with this one!! I have been very very stressed the past month dealing with house issues. I have been so low at times that the only thing that kept me going was thinking of my boys. In the midst of all of that, I find out my mother was in worst health than I thought. Needless to say, I have eaten my life away... I have ate when I was stressed and now I have gained 12+ pounds. It is probably more closer to 20 but I don't see it but I can feel it. I am so mad with myself right now because now I am back to where I started last year. That's okay because I am going to get on track and I am living to WIN IN 2010! For me that is a lifestyle change and now a new years resolution. I have got to stop eating my emotions away-atleast so I think.
Pray for me and I am going to get it done because I have the can do attitude.

My question to all of you today: What was your "Come to Jesus moment"?
What are you doing about it?

Mine was today and I am not liking the way I feel about it.

    Everyone kept telling me how much of a strong woman I am, how beautiful I am, how they admired me, but I couldn't see it. I look in the mirror & don't see a beautiful woman. So I decided 2010 was the year that I make myself into my own idea of what a beautiful Ouida should be.

    Jesus has this big sea of Forgetfulness.....are we still kicking ourselves when we've been forgiven, I wonder? I have been looking around for answers and have found them in blogs and in the health tips..whew! thank You Lord time for me when He has helped me find the answers on SP. emoticon with rejoicing!

    I'm sorry to hear about your mom and I know how stressful that is for you and your family...I pray things get better for you all soon....stay strong...

    As far as the emotional eating, don't beat yourself up for what has happened in the past...just make better choices going forward...I totally agree with Melissa...make sure you take care of yourself as you try to help others!!!

    I hear you girl,
    As you stated, alot was going in your life and you ate because of the stress you were under. Now, us this as the tool that will help you overcome. Find ways to de-stress, change what you can and the other give it to God he can handle it. Next, work on what you eat when you stress. If bad foods aren't around to grab, then your only eating the good stuff (fruits, veggies). Since you know you eat when you stress make sure they are smart choices, grab water instead of food 1st and if your still stressing grab your coat and walk & think the problem through. Have a little talk with Jesus we always feel better after those.

    Slow and steady
