Why did I do that?

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Things have been pretty stressful the past 2 weeks. Hubby has had some health issues that had him seeing a slew of doctors over the past 2 weeks to try to determine if he was going to have to have surgery that would require deflating one of his lungs to remove a mass that is sitting between his lungs. He's had this mass for over 40 years with no issues. With his last bout of kidney stones, they took a CT to see if he had anymore. The new tech who read his scans saw the mass and measured it. The doctor looked at it and based on the tech's measurements concluded that the mass had grown. Needless to say, this worried us all. Long story short, after 2 weeks and a battery of tests, the heart surgeon concluded that that the mass was measured differently the 3 times it was seen in scans. The surgeon remeasured all three the exact same way and concluded that it had not grow and said surgery was not necessary. Great news, right?

So why, during the last 2 weeks did I do such a great job with my eating and today when I got home I binged on shredded cheddar cheese? I couldn't stop myself. I was making hubby a quesadilla and while it cooked I just started eating the cheese. Had to have been at least a cup. Blew my fats right out of the water. The stress was gone, so why now did I do that? No, I'm not beating myself up over it. Just confused as to why I would do that. At least is was cheese and not cookies or donuts, lol. If they had been in the house it just might have been emoticon

    Just my thoughts but often while we are under a stressful situation we hold all our emotions tightly together so we can weather it all. Once the situation is over, the lid has been taken off the pressure cooker and we often "soothe" ourselves with food.

    I'm glad your husband got better news as that entire thing sounds very frightening. Also, don't beat yourself up about the aftershocks. Personally I would have eaten a bag of chocolate chip cookies and a gallon of ice cream afterwards!

    You were so relaxed and thinking what great news you had received that you were not aware of what you were doing. Hang in there you are doing great! emoticon emoticon
