I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who left encouraging messages and thoughts regarding Ashley yesterday. As much as I hate for her to have her feelings hurt in ANY way, i'm thinking that maybe this dress shopping was just possibly a blessing in disguise. She's definitely making an effort to do something about the issue so far. I noticed she is being more careful about her portions and she even went and played Dance Dance Revolution last night for awhile. I bought it hoping it would inspire some moving around and encouraged her to give it a try. After I explained that she didn't have to win the game or be perfect at it, that just the moving around would help her accomplish her goal she seemed more willing to try it.
She played it in my room and insisted the door be shut. I banned the boys from trying to watch her under the door too lol. After work tonight I am going to go play it with her. Maybe playing it together will get her more interested too. I'll let ya know how it goes. If I'm not here tomorrow........send an ambulance lol.
Anyway, thank you to all of you for your thoughts.......one way or another i'll get her past this.
