HAVING FAITH . . . and hoping for the best!!!

I am not doing so good weight wise . . . 😦 I don’t even want to weigh myself. 😦 I think I have gained at least 20 pounds in the last couple weeks and I feel horrible on top of it. Sluggish, out of breath, full, sick, you name it, I feel it!

My son has been going for tests. He has been having intestinal issues since the middle of July, non stop. We are hoping it is something minor, but both my husband and I have  a lot of gastrointestinal diseases in our families, so we are keeping our faith that all will work out ok. He is finally going to the specialist tomorrow which we are happy about, maybe now they can put a name to it and we can work on getting it under control. He has been a trooper though. He never missed a day of school or work and I am sure it hasn’t been the most comfortable of months for him. He doesn’t complain and when I ask him 20 questions (every day), he answers over and over again without frustration. I am literally driving him crazy with questions, making him eat certain foods, etc and he humors me every single time. 🙂

I found myself stressing in a very different way this time and it was through food??? I don’t usually eat when I am stressed. I normally don’t bother with food. I eat when I am bored. I haven’t stopped eating, you name it whether I like it or not, whether I am hungry or not, it is going in to my mouth 24/7. I can’t use this as an excuse . . . I should have control. There are a lot of stressful things in life and I have to find a way to deal with them without over eating. No more excuses from this moment on. Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure.

And keeping my fingers crossed that tomorrow brings good news. Hoping if it has to be something that it is IBS or just an irritated bowel from the antibiotics he was on.  🙂 Hoping for the best . . .

    Good luck on your journey! I am an emotional eater too, I either when I am sad, when I am happy, any emotion is an excuse to eat! Blessings to you! 🙂
