I Have a Stalker

Well, here I am. I have decided to post today because I have found myself stalking my own blog. I keep visiting my own blog as though by some miraculous happening, there will be a new post about a huge step in the right direction.

There are two of me right now. One wants so badly to "clean up my act" while the other wants to stay angry and bitter. My clean self keeps hoping to find a source of inspiration, while my bitter self continually finds excuses to stay that way.

My family and I have all been suffering from an illness that has really thrown us for a loop. I have found myself eating even when I feel sick to my stomach. It's just plain weirdness. I am using food to feel better, and I know that. I just wish that my sick little brain would realize that eating while nauseous is never a good idea. My sick kiddos are on my last nerve, and Mommy needs a break!

I have managed to pack on 10 pounds over the last month or so. I keep telling myself at least I haven't gained it "all" back, but a 10 pound gain has left me feeling like one blubbery blob. I was feeling so good for a while. I want that feeling back.

My life has been thrown in a few different directions lately, but I hope to have the time to sit down and visit with all of you once again. I don't mean to be a downer, so please forgive me! I am looking foward to spending Christmas day with my extended family, and I hope that you all have a wonderful Holiday as well!!! Merry Christmas everybody.

Had to pop by because I noticed your new pic in my followers. No matter how you may be feeling you look beautiful!

I hope you all feel better too and can enjoy Christmas (i've put a little bit back on and after i worked so hard all summer!)

New Year's resolution anyone?

Lyn said...

Merry Christmas and I do hope you feel better soon. Don't worry, those pounds will come right back off in January :)

So glad to hear from you. Hang in there, this is a tough time of year for healthy eating.

Deb said...

Nice to see you back. Hope to see more of you in 2009. :-) Your new picture is gorgous. I'd kill for hair like that.

Merry Christmas!

I hope you're all feeling better soon, and that you get that "feeling" back.

Natalia said...

Merry Christmas! Love your new picture...and I could have written this post btw! We've all been there and well, I'm pulling myself out right now. Hang in there girlie, I too have gained almost 10 lbs back, so easy to gain, can do it mindlessly, don't think I have ever mindlessly lost weight. Ugh!

I know exactly how you are feeling right now. I fell off the wagon really hard the last two months. I hope you feel better about things after the holidays. Have a very Merry Christmas:)

I'm glad to see you checking in! I'm sure I've put on a few myself. Not gonna weigh til after Christmas, though. I'm giving myself a little time to get it back together. I hope you have an awesome Christmas with your family!
