Reverting to type

When stressed, eat.

Old habits die hard.

I cannot be bothered with the diet thing when my Charlie boy is so sick.

I truly do not have time to think about it.

I launch from one hour to the next, juggling girls, drop offs, hospitals, phone calls and husbands. Food is the last thing on my mind.

So when the day finally calms, when I can finally retreat, I realise I am utterly starving. And remember that I can be nurtered by breakfast cereal and full cream milk, as well as maybe a can of Pringles and maybe also a couple of chocolate Brunch bars?

Not good.

Do not want to think about it.

At least I am honest on here.


Blerk to it all.

Although my beautiful friend "Badele" did give me a copy of Hypnodiet by Susan Hepburn when she came to see us at WCH today,so maybe I should just go to bed with that instead of the Pringles. Dunno.


  1. (hug) Is there healthy snack food? (asks Nelle with the hesitancy that comes with asking about unknown territory.)

    Still praying for Charlie. And you. xo

  2. Yeah Nelle my sweet slim thing, there is. For me it is veggies cut up. Or fava beans. Must get myself some of the fava beans. Thank you lovely girl. xx

  3. :( Lucy, I don't know what to say *hug*

  4. Don't beat yourself up too much Lucy. Charlie needs to be your priority now and if that means the occasional slip up when eating it is something you turn around when he is better. Hugs xxx

  5. Hey, I agree with the others, you don't need to be worrying about your food intake right now. Eat as much as you want, whatEVER you want! Diets can wait until later! Hugs!

  6. So sorry to hear about Charlie.
    My prayers are with you and your family.
    Good for you for at least trying to be aware of old habits.

  7. Charlie is definitely your first priority!!!

    I wish I was close by to help out even if it was the cleaning and cooking! Hope you're all getting enough rest xo

  8. I'm a stress eater as well and understand how tough it is right now. I hope Charlie is not in pain for long and you are all together as a family soon.

  9. You are NOT "reverting to type", you are doing what everyone does when their kid is in hospital.
    Stay by the bed, leave your own needs unattended until you are starving then make the best of what you got right then.

    Now shuddup or I'll call
    Richard Simmons to bounce around the house and scare the CRAP outta you...

  10. You need something to support you know Lucy. If it needs to be food it's okay. You've done such a great job with weight loss you'll be back on track soon. If you need the comfort, I say take it, you are NOT letting yourself down you are just nurturing yourself in a way that gives immediate support. Hope Charli is on the mend soon :)
