No More Excuses

I have been battling all of my life with the bad habit of eating for all the wrong reasons..for fun, because it tastes good, but mostly to numb painful emotions that seem too heavy to bear. And if left to my own devices, I would eat sugar day and night, skipping all nutritious food. I really want to get back to a healthy weight for my height (I am short). I want to crave and eat healthy foods most of the time, and put sugar in a small place in my life.

Traci! Thanks so much – yet again - for stopping by my blog. You’re always so encouraging and right now I’m *whispering* bored with it all – the focus and the effort. However, I’d be a lot worse than bored if I let myself slip now so your encouragement is more than welcome.
Hope you’ve stepped away from the Oreos (and the Twizlers!) – it’d make you feel so-o triumphant!
Also hope your husband’s recovering well and that the worry is subsiding. Lemme know?

"am I the butler? I re read my blog and it sounds like I am standing in my own way."

* Hey there! Talk to me, SparkPal :)
1) Do you actually know what you are up against?
2) Are you sure?
3) Are you "SURE sure" or just "sure"?

Gaba is both an amino acid and a neurotransmitter that signals nerves to "NOT DO" or an "inhibitory" signal. A pharma company invented an analog of the amino acid and sells it as neurontin, which I do not take.

It is possible to increase GABA levels in the body directly by taking the amino acid and there is a lot of research to suggest it is safe for pets and people, but as always educate yourself and talk to your doc for dosage levels. I take 750mg before bed. Some people take L-Glutamine or N-acetyl cysteine which are precursors to Gaba production in the body. GABA is a non-essential amino acid.

Hope that helps...keep in touch about your sleep. I would love to hear how you are doing!
