Not having a great week myself- im wanting sugar a bit too much and not drinking as much water as i should be. Not gone totally off track because im still determined to lose weight each week but this week has been more of a challenge for me. It shouldnt have though really- nothing has stood in my way apart from my own lack of willpower!!
Weigh in tomorrow morning and im not going to be very confident standing on the scales.

I'll do it! I ended up eating frustration cake last night and I'm getting sick of being mad at myself. My kid has suddenly turned into one of the brats from Supernanny, and it was a rough day yesterday. Today's not shaping up to be much better. My polite, gentle kid is suddenly a belligerent aggressive monster and I don't know why. It's like he woke up the other morning a different person. Yesterday he was kicking and hitting, and when I told him we wouldn't play outside if he couldn't be nice, he shouted "I never, never, never, never, EVER want to see you again!" It's the first nasty thing he's ever said to me. Ugh. What is happening?

Long story short, I need to focus on not being all "bad day. cake."

So sorry to hear about your tough time with your son. How old is he? The hardest thing, I think, is not to take the angry things our kids say and do personally. And also for me, to keep my temper and not get sucked in. But if you can be calm and ride it out, maybe it can help. I feel for you.

And I love your line: frustration cake. That's what I was doing: eating anger chips, scarfing depression potatoes and eating frustration cake. And now not only am I sick of it, it's making me feel kinda sick so THE INSANITY MUST STOP. At least with the eating. Life stuff I guess I just have to deal with and hope it gets better. And hope it does for you too. Your sweet son is in there; he will come out again.

I agree, ladies. I had really been doing well about the stress eating, emotional eating, whatever you want to call it, but stress kicked into high gear and I went right back to old habits. I just need to keep remembering that I am in charge here, not my emotions. I am capable of doing what I need to do.

nobe, hang in there. As Hope said, your little one's real, sweet personality will come back out. He's just testing the waters and acting on emotion. Although at his age, it's appropriate; at my age, not so much .

Hope, you are very patient at waiting for things to turn around. They will. Are you enjoying getting ready for college?

Cassie, I am trying to be patient. Right now, my DD is experiencing terrible times with a very self destructive friend who has recently come back into our lives. And so selfishly, as much as I wish this girl well and as much as DD and I will miss each other, we are counting the days until she can get away to school and hopefully make a new beginning.

So I have been turning to my old friend and nemesis: stress eating but as I am sure you yourself see, in the long run, it only makes things worse.

And for me with the fibro, bad eating makes things especially bad. So I am back on "The Hope Plan:" (nothing revolutionary here)
more fruits and veg (I should add that to my goal) sensible snacks and for me: planning ahead and sticking with it as closely as possible.

I hope you are able to overcome your stress and enjoy your summer with your family and friends unless they are the source of your stress and then I wish you a nice vacation. Calgon (or airline) take me away...
