Donkey kicking a habit....


You guys are so clever!  The theme is indeed diet-related.  

After feeling better following therapy, meds, and some life changes, I started getting angry at all the little "comfort foods" that have been a crutch for me all my life, but especially since my parents passed away.  

Losing three parents in less than a year, two abruptly, requires a little comforting.

The offending little "friends" seemed so nice and loving until denial stopped hiding all the pounds that were piling on.


My therapist suggested some art therapy around my anger and I started plotting painful ways to get rid of the nagging, conniving, delicious little devils.

Don't get mad, get even...right?


Oh, a cupcake every now and then is fine...eating them by the half or whole dozen, not so much, LOL.

Just wait until you see what I am killing off next!

In stitches,
Teresa   :o)

  2. good luck on your changing your life habits to good ones instead - grief can do weird things to you - you will work through it I'm sure and if quilting can help all the better right!
