Feeling down

Today is one of those days i just feel so sad. I do not want to be sad, but then i cannot help it. I wrote a few poems, that is normally how i relax my mind. I was reading my bible to last night.
I hope this feeling goes away. I have pain in my legs and feet too , hope the pain gets better tommorow.

I do struggle to eat healthy sometimes, especially when one gets these cravings. When i feel sad i sometimes take comfort in junk food. I constantly remind myself that a pick me up chocolate will not do me any good, i am slowly learning to let go off my bad eating habits. I always ask myself do i real need to eat this and the moment i do that, i gather the courage to put it down. This year i am going to concentrate on the things i can change and make peace with what i cannot change. I will concentrate on what i am good at and excel at that.

hello. my name is Dawn. I am new to this and not very good with computer but, enjoying reading what you wrote. You wrote, you constantly remind yourself picking up the food or chocolate will not do you any good. No Kidding, it only makes me worse. thanks for saying this. It helped me to stay out of the kitchen. When I am down and depressed, knowing that it will pass helps me. Praying also can slow down my negative thoughts. Sending you a thumbs up for writting and putting down the chocolate

I had four peanut butter chocolate chip cookies today. That is too much chocolate for me. I am sick to my stomach. Not complaining, just surprised. I\'m glad. I\'ve had some pain in my arm. It is hard to get used to because it is so surprising.

Hang in there. I\'m learning to say everyday, I do this for myself and God - as I understand God. Awkward, but true.

What I meant by my comment about God is that I can handle the pain, the overeating, the depression because it is for only one moment or an hour or a day. That helps some.
