Wonderfully put! You've given me more than a few things to think about here.

the biggest thing that has been going through my mind (besides how awesome you are ;p) is bad habits and how if we really want to get rid of them we need to replace them with good habits. and all yours sound rather fabulous especially the painting one. blessings to you and your family to get through this week ;)

i totally use food as a comforter. I don't smoke, i don't drink, so when i am feeling stressed i grab something to munch on and then start relaxing. BUT, like you said it doesn't truly help. I'm trying to remember that nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!! i've made promises to myself and set goals and i actually WANT to complete them this time.
you inspire me, my husband inspires me to just be consistent, do it everyday. one of my habits that hopefully can form before the new year is to not eat after dinner. that is my downfall, at night when all is calm and i'm cuddling on the couch i want to stuff my face! so lame! i'm going to start chewing gum i think. ;)
and i don't know waz going on with your life this week, but i'll be praying for you!

Ok...let me tell ya, you are still inspiring! I'm a "laugh at everything - ESPECIALLY myself" kind of gal too. And I'm always ready to find the silver lining. You are inspiring! I'm glad you're conscious of the fact that tough things are ahead instead of figuring out your battle plan in the midst of the war. Go girl! And prayers over here for your Ish-youz. :)

... Peel ugly wallpaper. Laundry...

Let's not forget clean out the garage or bleach the bathroom grout with a Qtip.

Did I ever tell you my former best friend is Little Debbie? Oh yeah. She still calls me constantly, trying to make up. I've set my phone to ignore her number, and I never, every walk by her house any more. Not that I don't want to, but I know now that she's a meanhearted b*%$h and I'm better off without her friendship.

Mega Prayers winging you way, my Friend!

Speaking my language? It's like you're in my head!
I totally totally understand.
Prayers being sent your way this week!

God Bless you, Darlin' (as we say in the South). Hang tough and don't forget that you are a Princess...your Father is the King of Kings! Praying fervently for you!

I LOVE this post! I so identify with your point about food often being the one thing we can control in uncontrollable circumstances. I wonder if that's why Americans have such a problem with obesity, because so much in our lives is out of our control?

"Food is not my friend" instantly conjured up for me the shark support group in Finding Nemo: "Fish are friends, not food!"
