Thanks for taking the time to read my blog (My Spark Journey). We tend to think we're the only one facing problems and it helps to know that so many of us are overcoming obstacles and facing this journey together. I'm definitely taking a "round-about" road filled with detours, but I will reach my destination! Thank you for your encouragement and support. Sheila 1764 days ago
Thank you for the Spark Goodie! i haven't been paying much attention to my Spark Page so it went unnoticed; I plan to watch the second season of Glee tonight and sip green tea! Looks as if you are off to a great start with nine off already! Keep the Spark. 1765 days ago
Thank you for your comment. I have actually been pretty much vegetarian for the past six months and just finally decided to give up my 2-3 oz chicken 2 x week. I get protein every day from beans, soy, tofu, nuts. I wasn't craving carbohydrates last night...I was on an eating binge due to being lonely and tired and carbohydrates just happened to be the available comfort food as I don't keep candy in the house so I chowed down on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It was closest to sweets I could get. I am an emotional eater and have an addictive personality and although I no longer drink I often use food in an addictive way. I am working with my AA sponsor on the food issue too. 1768 days ago
Eating too little can be harmful...I usually eat about 1200 calories. When I cut back my mind becomes too cloudy and its too difficult to think! Since I have boosted my calories up to about 1200 per day, I am feeling much better.
Too little calories causes your body to go into starvation mode. Not good!
Thank YOU for your kind goodie and your Friendship! :)
