Two Discoveries

1. I am an emotional eater.

I ate half a cobbler yesterday as I worked feverishly on an upcoming event. Half a cobbler. Ridiculous. I think I was a little stressed.

I've also been known to eat to relax and feel happy. I think any emotion will do.

The only time I don't eat is when I'm upset or sad. Hmmm ... 

2. I'm an "older" lady.

This weekend I was referred to as an "older lady." It was in a complimentary way as in ... "She's a pretty older lady." It's kinda like saying, "Your huge butt is cute" or "Those wrinkles around your eyes show character."

Think I'll go get some ice cream.

Oh how I love thee!! :) I eat all the time...any emotion will do also. I clean when I am upset. I'll clean the white off my countertops when I'm really mad! And as for being an "older lady"...well if that's you...girl you wear it well!! :) Love the post!

LOL, I am right there with you. The only time I don't emotionally eat is when I'm sad or down. But happy or stressed? Bring on the food! :)

LOL! From one "older" woman to another... I hear ya! Nothing like a little one to tell you all about yourself! My little one let me know about my "fat, squishy - uhhumm- backside" this weekend.

At least we're smarter than they are! We can always play the "wisdom" card. LOL!

I usually starve myself when I'm stressed, but last night I ate 15, yes 15, bite sized candy bars right before I went to bed. I don't know what was wrong with me!

Older? Who said that? A ten year old? You aren't older.

(my word verification is fraphize...drinking a frappuchino on a highwire? hehehe)

Go ahead and add me to the list of emotional eaters. I've gained 15 lbs this first year of hubby being a full-time pastor. The really sad thing about that is that I lost 30 lbs in 2009. :( One day, ladies...one day! :)

Love, love, love you! Seriously, I hear ya! I live in a college town, so there are lots of young people at our church. I get lots of "yes ma'ams." And I am currently chewing two pieces of eclipse gum to keep me from snacking myself to midnight!
