No Resolutions!

Welcome to 2014! I don't "do" New Years resolutions. I ALWAYS fail at them so I quit making them. However, I have committed to myself that in 2014 I will lose this extra weight I've put back on and focus on getting back on track (not necessarily in that order). It is going to be a tough year...lots of personal challenges ahead. But this is something I must do for myself instead of for everyone else. Like I always say...."Never give up! Never surrender!"

OMG I can so relate about the eating and the stress of teenagers and rough patches. Maybe it started when we (my husband and I )went thru a custody battle with my ex boyfriend to see my kids. My heart was been torn out at that point. My daughter is now 19 and lives with us but we are different people and often butt heads. She was 5-6 or 6 when I left her father and he became very bitter.

I don't think I have ever been able to cope with lives curves in a positive way. When I was 12 and my mom was sick, I slept for days, wouldn't eat etc and I never did learn to handle stress. I tend to abuse my body like smoking, quit that, drinking, quit that, gambling, quit that, but food is essential to live and its always there in your house, readily accessible. It's just the choices I made.

I can't remember when I started binge eating either and the thing about sweets. As a child I would rather have pickles than cake. I guess we change, the chemicals in products change.

I am only now discovering its all or nothing for me with the sugar, I can't be like my mom and limit myself to a piece of a chocolate bar, and that stuff (sugar, bad carbs) only leaves me unsatisfied and wanting more and very lethargic. I can't just have some pasta, either I want the WHOLE bowl.

Yet the cravings are there, a bad habit and I am trying to change it. Day 9 and counting and your blog has so helped me today.

Hi this is Carol from The Crock Pot Team, wishing you a great day. I see we have needing to lose 100+ lbs in common, and we live on opposite coasts. Have you had WLS surgery yet?

We have over a dozen new recipe threads as of Jan 2011 . . . so you can find and/or post chicken recipes on the Chicken Thread, and so on.

Check out the Weight Watchers Recipe Thread . . . I don't do WW but some of those looked really, really good when I posted them . . .

There are also diabetic recipe threads, vegetarian, kid-friendly, etc. And we have a Pantry Challenge that is ongoing, join us anytime. Hope you are doing well on your SparkJourney; you can do it!
