I have spent the last week dividing my time between my parents and my mother-in-law. I had braced myself for a difficult week food-wise. We are caring for my mother-in-law who has terminal cancer. She is on a high calorie diet. For a break, I get to go to my parentsí home. My mother is the original food pusher.
It has gone better than I ever could have hoped. My family could see my weight loss and was very supportive. When my mother asked how she could help, I asked her to help me stay on my food plan. She kept food that I could eat. I would fix a high calorie meal for my mother-in-law and just drink water and pick at a little food while she ate. Then later when another family member came in, I would run over to my motherís and eat. It worked out just fine.
I have another week to go. It will be a little more difficult because I will be alone with my mother-in-law more than I was this week. I will just do the best that I can. When I get home, I will have gone 2 weeks without weighing in. That will be the longest that I have gone since starting this journey.
I have only been able to check the forum a couple of times this week. I miss you all!!
