Who knew that mean words could still hurt after all these years? Cruels words was enough to set me off in anger and blinked back tears. I felt like a hurt child! I don't know why.... I was never really teased as a kid. I was always the shy timid kid who knew NOT to draw attention to herself.
I was determined not to drive to the nearest fast food joint to stuff my face! Instead I continued to chopped mushrooms, bell pepper, onion for my breakfast. Although I was given an apology and I did accept it. I also gave myself a hug and realized I can claim a small victory. I didn't binge or indulge in emotional eating! It's a small feat, but to me it's another step towards achieving a healthy lifestyle.
