Health & Support the damage of two eating disoders in one year Feb 17 2012
16:07 (UTC)

I too have ocd with exercise, i exercise everyday for an hour or more. I do it when i am sick or in pain or whatever. when i do miss a workout i feel horrible and beat myself up about it. When it is nice out i put my youngest in jogger and run for at least 6 miles or more. six is minimum.

When i had no kids i ran 8 miles everyday outside even when it was -30 out now i go to GYM or elliptical downstairs when it is too cold to run outside.

When i was younger my mom put me on a diet and forced me to exercise, i hated it then but love it now. my mom was anorexic and bulimic and i too suffer from distorted eating and feel i can't eat unless i exercise. i don't eat all day until supper.

I have two boys( almost 3 and six) and i believe them watching me exercise will one day be good for them.

Wow, thanks for all the advice. i think you may be right about dropping to one nap maybe an early afternoon one say 1-2pm. i think he is teething as he just cut his upper right tooth. he was an excellent sleeper and than when he started husband won't let me do the "cry it out" method, but i try to let him fall asleep on his on in the day.

i think  i am working myself up for nothing, as you allsay, babies are al;l different and when you find something that works they change.

tjhanks again:)

p.s this is my second child my first is four, also my nine month old is super happy, thriving and easy going so i must be doing something right lol!Foot in mouth
