Your struggles are not unlike my own and I noticed (m)by Tiger Rats (Login TigerRats)
The path to peace and harmony of course is to realize that "They will never put me first on their list, and I need to see that as their short coming and not that I am unworthy or unlovable."
How hurtful it is to yourself to allow yourself to base your own worth or lovability on the actions of others.
You sound so much more centered as you plan for the cookies, time alone without hubby, etc., and that's all good healthy self-nurturing.
Most important I think is that we not beat ourselves up but we move on in a positive direction, without dwelling on the past. Each moment is an opportunity to make a decision that supports our healthy, fit bodies or not.
I salute you for coming to balance, and I hope to keep moving in the direction of balance myself. It's been so hard to find balance this past year!
I thought cutting back at work would do it, but scarily, it hasn't -- it must be more than that -- I fell away somehow and no "one magic thing" seems to fix it.
It's a series of attitudes and behaviors, let's put one foot in front of the other today, I did great yesterday and am on track for today, yippee! Let's do it together!
