Earlier today I wrote a blog on taking care of my dying Mom. I was In Az last week packing up my moms house. I have lost a lot of weight in the last month. I wanted to lose weight . I have been staying away from sugar for awhile. My sister and I went to pick up some food after a long day in the garage going through boxes. The sandwich came with a cookie. My sister said to me you lost all that weight, are you really going to eat that cookie. I looked at her and said sometimes, you just have to eat a cookie. So when the going gets rough eat a cookie.

    • Oh so sorry to hear about your Mom.  You were so sweet to help me with my dog passing and you are going through so much in your own life.
      Eat the COOKIE! You deserve it and if it gives you a smile even better. Just remember to do it in moderation, that is the key. I can make a box of cookies last the week, I just need one or two. The minute I stray form that the harder it is to stay on track.
      I will keep you in my prayers.

    • leean,
      I went through a lot of sad stress when going through both parents sickness and death. It is the only time I could’t eat,usually I want to eat when under stress, but this was different. If you want to eat at this time to help you cope don’t feel guilty. The last thing you want to do is feel sad and guilty. You are just trying to find comfort.

      Hugs to you,
      -Meri

    • Thanks for all the warm words. I just got back from Az today. I had to move my moms house. It was so much work. I am really glad it is done. This time I didn’t eat the cookie ,I ate chicken. My sister and her husband took me out for a nice dinner in cave creek Az. Thanks girls again for the warm words.
