Yesterday was a very stressful day, starting with some ugly family drama from my childhood. Historically I would have dealt with this stress by eating and eating and eating some more. This was how I dealt with stress and how I came to weigh 80 pounds more than I do today. Last night I realized that it never occurred to me to eat in this way…progress!
Today I am personally thankful for: a long walk at the beach with a good friend (way better form of self care than food); the reminder that healthy boundaries are always a good thing; the absolutely beautiful weather yesterday.
