So the first thing on your to do list is
"make a to do list" ?

That looks gorgeous SOLB I'm so pleased you like it, it's perfect on your slim fingers. Hi By 'Eck...I'm ok thanks! Managed to successfully and spectacularly mangle a finger with my husband's chopper but other than that all's well x

*waves to Bear and gives him a lanky gangly limbs-too-long-for-body hug*

It's amazing isn't it, Sossidge is obscenely talented. 

I'm not doing brilliantly on the OCD work re: food again today, not sure how to keep myself focused, I've not done any exercise for almost two weeks now, cos I felt sick and tired (nightmares and nausea I think) I wonder if that'll help or not. 

I am supposed to be trying to focus on making real meals with an emphasis on noticing whether I like it or not cos I usually don't care about food and just eat stuff that has the right mix of carbs and protein etc it's all quite dry and I wouldn't dare serve it to anyone else!

Honestly I think a big part of the problem at the moment is that I feel really fat and have a massive urge to stop eating. I feel bloated, guilty and massive every time I eat anything. I know that not eating is a stupid idea and I'm not giving in to it but it's making eating harder aside from the OCD. It's like it's in my best interests to let the OCD win. 

I feel so fat I don't even want to shower in case I look down and suddenly have a ginormous fat stomach. It's been a bit of a problem for a about a week. I don't think it'll get out of hand and I'm not desperately worried, it's more uncomfortable that massively problematic but I thought I should be honest with you all

Yay for *gangle hugs*, be careful with Hubby's chopper (snigger fnarr fnarr)

 

Maybe have a word with the CPN on Friday if you're seeing her then SOLB, I've not a huge amount of experience but I imagine these things can creep back in if you're not careful

I want a lanky, gangly limbs too long for body hug *steals Sossidges hug from Bear* 

20/11/2012 at 18:25

I probably should Bear but she's a bit too far on the other extreme, she's rather fond of her food and is likely to overreact a bit ... or is that just cos I don't want her watching any more closely? *looks a bit conflicted* 

I'm pretty sure it'll pass of it's own accord in a few days, it really isn't at the point where I'll starve to death or anything and I'm still eating the minimum number of calories it's just disruptive to the OCD work cos it's very disorganised and I wanted to get back on track with the three meals a day sensible thing 

20/11/2012 at 18:35

oi gimme that hug back

 

*hugs SOLB* *grabs gangly hug*

20/11/2012 at 18:38
Wonders what is going on with gangly limbed hugs. Isn't a hug ftom a friend still s hug, regardless of limb size?
Solb, I sometimes get food problems. Remember that your body shape fluctuates anyway
20/11/2012 at 18:39

ahhh well I guess I was caught hug snatching fair and square 

I guess I'd better go off and look for food   I don't like this bit but it'll get easier in a couple of days and if I run I'll need to fuel. I can do it
