So yesterday was a very hard day for me, one of the hardest I've had since starting this program.
I moved out of my ex's house in March of this year, and have had my own place since then.
Yesterday, however, his new gf took to sending me very nasty emails that were threatening, and attacked me on a very personal level.
My first instinct was to binge.. it hit me later how much of a habit this is! My automatic stress reaction was to go eat!
But I said to myself, Are you going to let this stress ruin your recovery? Or are you going to handle this like an adult?
And I came here to read other people's blogs and successes. I read some out of the ebook.
Took a bath, and went to bed.
Hooray me!!! I successfully handled stress!!
It got me to thinking this morning about how the ebook says that we handle stress and our emotions much better when we actually eat in a healthy way. Maybe this really is the truth...what would have normally been so overwhelming for me, turned out to be a totally managable situation.
And this morning I am feeling so proud of myself, and going on with my recovery!
I am so grateful for this program, and these forums:)
Keep strong, ladies:) We really CAN do this!
