Oh dear...

Postby emmaline » Sun Feb 03, 2008 6:13 pm

I have been so bad this weekend.
And I KNOW I'm just eating my feelings...
My boyfriend and I have been having a couple of fights lately and I just feel so down and out about it.
We've been together for four yrs and he just doesn't seem to care like he used to.
So I keep finding solace in food.
Last night we had a massive tiff, as he'd had a bit too much to drink, so I came home and ate wayyy too much.
Today I just couldn't help myself.
I'm so angry because this is the first time ive been below 70 in so long and I don't want all my hard work to be a waste.
And the worst bit is we aren't even talking and I don't see a resolution popping up anytime soon...
I just need to find a way to stop turning to food...

Oh hun....you poor thing :(

How are things today? Did you get anything sorted last night? I hope so.

I'm the opposite to you, which i think is just as bad. When my partner and I fight, I can't eat at all!! It's like I'm comfort starving!

I know it sounds silly, but instead of going to the fridge, why don't you try and go for a walk? Get some exercise and some fresh air to gain some perspective and at the same time, away from temptation?

I hope you're feeling better?!

Big hugs xoxox

You guys are the best
Thank you!

And you're both right!
It's a new day and I've already been much better.

And agreed Ali, I think I just have to keep myself busy!
Last night I went for a bit of a run on my treadmill and it reminded me how good it feels
Plus all those endorphins helped to pick up my mood!

It's weird like that isn't it Ali!
I know heaps of people who can't bring themselves to eat when they're stressed or upset.
I go the other way!

We still aren't talking.. :(
I just have a bad feeling this time.
But I'm not going to let it ruin all my hard work regardless.

Thank you for all your support!
It makes all the difference to be able to talk it out and have people who understand

Every time I wanna reach for the chocolate bickie, I'm going to go on that walk!

I'm so sorry things are any better...

If it's not meant to be, don't beat yourself up, ok? Trust me, I had more than my share of bad relationships and break ups before I met the man I now adore....and I was ready to give up! Just make sure you keep looking after yourself.

My latest thing to do if we argue and it's too dark outside to be walking, running, cycling on my own is to do....housework!! Haha!

Chin up hun....you know where we are if you need a chat.

Great news!
He came around last night and we talked.
It seemed like we were actually going to break up for most of the conversation
But something switched us into the right direction
I think he got a bit freaked that we'd been together so long and that we'd been fighting.
So he figured if it went on like this, it would just be awful.
But we're both going to try harder and he really wants to make it up to me because... lets just say he was less than pleasant after a couple of drinks on Saturday!

Thank you SO much for checking on me Ali!
You're the best!

And seriously, going for a walk/jog put me in a better mood on Sunday and Monday night and I think I was able to be more level-headed about the situation because of it!

So I think I've hopefully managed to turn my "oh dear" weekend around - with lots of thanks to you :)

PS He's shouting me to dinner on Friday, so now it's really my chance to make up for a good weekend with a healthy choice

Oh hun, I'm so glad! :D

AND - what a great catch you have - a guy who can admit when he's done the wrong thing, and better yet, want to make up for it (no offence to all you guys on the forum!!).

Hope it all goes well on Friday night....and Valentines Day is coming up!! YAH!

More big hugs - but for different reason this time!!

Thanks guys!!
You're the best.
I started on this forum in October and sort of got a bit too shy
But in the last couple of weeks, its made such a difference to have like minded people to talk to
I really think it makes such a difference, especially when I have such sweeties to talk to!

Going to yummy thai with a bottle of champagne...
I think I'll just have a glass and pick healthy thai!
