We've decided that's what I need to target. Not all the feelings surrounding neglect & abuse in my life. The eating disorder was my first disorder & I've been suffering with it for 22 years!
We'll get to that other stuff. I can't imagine how it'd feel to be free from the thoughts, feelings, & behaviors concerning food, body, & weight.
Big hugs x
What game you playing?
It's called Two Point Hospital. BF got me hooked on it. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! ❤️
Regardless of what scales say. It is a mindset that is difficult to change. Peace to you Manda. Xx
Thank you, nixi. xx💙xx
Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
I started watching Brittney Runs a Marathon lats night (movie on Amazon Prime). Silly, but a good reminder of setting tiny little goals to start anything. Maybe set a goal of walking 10 mins on the 'mill?
I will definitely check that out, Jeff. I did get on there yesterday but only for 8 minutes because I got dizzy. I'm doing a 3 speed with a 3 incline. Not something to write home about but it's better than nothing, right?
That is absolutely better than nothing, and it's a huge accomplishment! Just get the body moving. Everything gets easier with practice! All you really want is to get that heart pumping.
Thanks for the encouragement, Jeff. I was just talking to BF about how I'm going to make myself get up at 9AM everyday & do the treadmill & yoga first thing. I've said this before but will really give it a shot. He said I should do it for two weeks.
And then revaluate which probably means I'll feel really good & want to keep it up.
So do I.
I wish that too, Manda. I don't have any friends either. There are some people I run with, but even after leading a group on Saturday, no one invited me out for food after. It's hard...be thankful you have your bf and daughter!
We should all holiday (vacation for all of you American pandas) in the same place😆
Thanks, Jeff. I guess I do need to be more thankful for my BF & daughter. I'm sorry you don't have built in friends like that.
Ian, sounds like a plan! 😊 Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! ❤️
I'm in! Where to first? I'd love a panda hang, you guys are the best.
Well, good that you're realizing this. That's important! Always good to bring up to your doctor if you're (or he is) concerned!
Thanks, Jeff. I will definitely mention it. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
Appointment date twinsies! Hope it feels nicer than you expected.
Thanks, Alicia! I'm honored to be any type of twinsies with you! It hasn't been too bad without them but, to be honest, I've spent most of the time sleeping. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
They must have appreciated your visit a lot, Manda.
Thanks, Albertine. I want to do it more often. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
It's hard to process something like that. You will in time though. Hugs
Thanks, Alicia. I'm happy to be at a stable point & able to finally tackle my messy life. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
Such good news about how you're feeling x
Lovely spending time with the kids but it is nice to have some peace when they go back😊
There are lots of tips to establishing habits. They say that it takes a minimum of two weeks, which isn't that much time. Just tell yourself you'll use it for two weeks. Set aside a specific time. And don't worry if you fall short!
Thanks, Ian. You're right, it will be peaceful. I should adjust just fine. Jeff- thanks so much for the tip. It does seem easier if I set a smaller goal to meet. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! 💚
Hope everything is OK with you and your mom.
Thanks, Alicia. I hope so, too. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas. ❤️
Congratulations! You're raising a lovely person :)
Aw! Thanks, Alicia. She is an amazing person. I'm thankful to be her mom. Just hope I haven't screwed things up too much. Thanks for the hugs, Pandas! ❤️
I get it. Have a good one Manda
