Comfort Eating!

Wow - where on earth has this comfort eating come out of? I'm beginning to think I have a problem. I alway thought my sweet tooth came from just loving sweet things. But now I definitely think the anxiety of doing ivf has lead me to comfort eat over the past couple of months. I actually sickened myself today. I ate healthily up to 6pm and then BAM....biscuit after biscuit in a friends house. Then when I got home...more chocolate. Why?????? I actually woke up tonight to use the bathroom, and couldn't get back to sleep worrying about the weight I feel has crept on around my waist. So here I am up outta bed writing on this blog! I just couldn't get back to sleep!

So I suppose I'm making a pledge to the world that I will eat healthily and exercise from now on. Binging on wasteful, fattie, sweet food over! This time next week, I promise to write an uplifting post about how I had a great week food-wise, about how many fresh air walks I went on and how pleased I am with myself for making a plan and sticking to it.

Ivf-Journey update: AF is starting tonight - feel a little crampy but not too bad. Down-reg scan is on Tuesday next. Nasal spray going fine. I need to go through all the consent forms with DH. Some big issues to decide on regarding "ethical" issues about embryo storage etc.

Gonna make out a fitness/eating plan for the week now and then go back to bed. Tomorrow is Friday Thank God!

  1. Hi Mrs. Babydream, thanks for sharing and I will definitely be supporting and following you on this journey. I can totally relate to comfort eating - do it myself quite a bit. I love to eat, so I don't think I can go on a strict diet, so I'm just trying to eat healthier foods, like fruits and veggies. Take care, try not to feel too anxious and like you said, take it one day at a time. Hugs!
