Comfort Food

All of the "experts" say you should never turn to food for comfort.

I agree. Except I made a massive exception this weekend.

I had a LOUSY holiday weekend. For the past 3-4 weeks or so, I've been experiencing numbness and tingling in my neck/shoulder area. Friday morning (July 2) I woke up and could not move my head. I had pain in my neck radiating down my left shoulder blade.


I went to a chiropractor Friday morning and he thinks I have some kind of damage in there. Where it came from is anyone's guess. He thought it could possibly stem from a car accident I had 6 years ago. Who knows.

Yet another weird LaRue disease that goes unexplained.

Anyway, I had every intention of shopping for a car on Saturday and/or Monday, since it was a 3-day weekend and every car dealership was having holiday specials going on.

I ended up staying home the entire weekend alone (as my family was all in either Utah or Colorado). And man alive, did I have a SPECTACULAR mope.

Major pity party for one with all the junk food one could imagine.

Yeah - I get weighed tomorrow. Does anyone want to guess how much weight I GAINED? I have no doubt whatsoever there will have been no weight lost. None at all.

Just need to start over I 'spose and suck it up (that was for you Leslie).

Dreading tomorrow...

Tara, it happens to the best of us.
I am wanting everything that I am not supposed to eat. What I would give for a fried carne asada chimi and some awesome kind of dessert. Oh well, maybe in a month or two. We will see how long I last. I think you are doing awesome and just keep up the good work. And yes, "suck it up"!

Allow yourself to be human! I am reading a book right now called "Christlike Parenting" and he was just talking about how it doesn't do any good for us to sit and tell ourselves how bad we did something. It actually perpetuates the bad behavior. Instead, we should stop the negative talk and replace it with positive "solution talk." Instead of saying (in my situation) "Wow! I'm a horrible mother for screaming at my kid. Ryan would be so much better with a different mom!" I should be saying something more like, "Next time I feel like losing my temper I am going to go in the other room and read my scriptures."
Have you seen the cartoon movie "Meet the Robinsons"? KEEP MOVING FORWARD! :) You are doing great!
