When are you due? Oh, you mean my food baby?

Well it happened. One of the biggest fears a woman can have. I was asked if I'm pregnant. I'm not.

One of my clients I saw yesterday is about 70 years old, and is also deaf. We write notes to communicate with each other. I saw her yesterday and as I was leaving she pointed at my stomach, did a rocking motion with her arms, and said, "baby?"

I shook my head no, and she did a face palm. I couldn't help but laugh a little. But man, what a blow to my self esteem. I have been more active, making better food choices, and hardly drinking soda. I went to Burger King yesterday wanting a Whopper Jr with cheese meal, and I opted for the grilled chicken meal with no mayo and apple fries. I wanted to skip the bike ride Dustie and I had planned and just hide under my covers and cry.

Normally a situation like this would just trigger an eating binge, but I did not allow it. I stopped by the grocery store on my way back into town. I picked up some BLSL chicken breasts marinated in sun-dried tomatoes and some fresh produce. We grilled out and enjoyed a nice healthy dinner together.

After dinner we went for a bike ride together. We just tootled around town and ventured on the trails. The Cedar Valley bike trail stretches over 50 miles. We didn't do that last night, but someday maybe. Can I tell you how awesome my saddle seat is? My rump didn't hurt one bit!

You'd think he could wait for me......

We rode for about 40-45 minutes or so. We had a lot of fun talking and being together (we don't get to see each other much). I could have gone with out getting a bug in my eye, but the good comes with the bad, right?

  1. Good for you for keeping control! I've been asked the same thing, and I know how hard that is. I'm sure I probably did binge til I felt better. Very proud of you.

  2. Thank you! I keep telling myself if hunger is not the problem, then food shouldn't be the answer.
