November 17th, 2014 Letting The Tweets Handle It

Letting the Tweets handle tonight's edition. I have some things to write about but I'll wait until tomorrow night. It's late and I better get to bed.

One thing is for sure, I'm hitting the pillow with the peace of mind that comes from knowing the integrity of my plan was solid today.

My Tweets today:

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. Sean, you've been doing an amazing job in the face of tremendous emotional upheaval -- I was so sorry to hear about you and Heather, and I know you're both amazing people who will move ahead with your lives with integrity.

    I, personally, have NOT stuck to plan during my own emotional upheaval (my little girl cat was very ill, hospitalized for a week, and we had to make that awful decision on Saturday) and managed to dine my way through distress and mourning. I still felt just as hollow inside no matter what I ate. Looking at the scale I wish I had found the wherewithal to choose differently, but it's done and I'm back on track so there's that.

    Best wishes to you.

    1. Amanda, thank you very much for this. I'm so sorry to read about your little one. That deeply ingrained reaction to pad our emotions with food, is a powerful one. Your awareness is sharp, though--as you discovered the pain--those feelings, were still in there, even after the food.
      This awareness is critical and you're right there in it.
      I'm so glad you're back on track, Amanda. That's a big deal!!! Best wishes to you, too!

  2. You are a great model for me. I want you to know that because I know this is still a tough time and you are sticking with it.

    1. PJ, I sincerely appreciate you. Thank you. You give me strength. It's truly in us, you know? It really is. We can succeed come what may. It's not always easy, but it is within us. Strength to you, PJ, always.

  3. It takes much energy to handle highly emotional happenings in our lives. Making sure we get enough rest is important. You are doing that Sean and I applaud you!
    Thanks for keeping the daily blogging going! You are motivating and teaching us how to handle life!

    1. Nancy, thank you! It's a challenge a lot of the time. But it's possible to get through. The biggest key I've found-- Not isolating. If we start feeling "alone," we must reach out and realize we're not. At. All. One of the biggest mistakes I've made in the past is isolating--withdrawing, and let me tell you--that can get pretty dark.
      The daily blogging--no matter how short or long a post, is critically for my continued recovery.
      You're so very welcome, Nancy. I'm learning--always, just learning my way through like all of us.
      Thank you again.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
