Just when I thought I had my eating under control I find out I don't. Christmas and my birthday (Jan 20th) were times where I overate and didn't watch what I ate. I went straight for the sweets and the salty snacks and I'm now paying dearly for it. Just when I thought I was passed having to write down every single little thing I am now back to having to do so to retrain myself. I stopped logging in food for months and I was doing fine but lately the eating is getting out of control again. I'm going to try my best to log in my food everyday.

I'm still in school but was only able to get 1 class this semester... an online class for speed reading. Class started on Tuesday and so far so good. I still have a 4.0 gpa which is nice but classes last semester stressed me out so much I have now broken out so bad on my face and I resorted to overeating or not eating enough.

I was sick with the flu for over 3 weeks and just now over being sick. When I was sick I wasn't hungry but forced myself to eat and again overate. I feel so down and feel like I'm a failure for going so off course but I am trying my best to get back on track.

I'm still out of work with not much end in sight. I just recently lost a friend to cancer who was much older than me who was unemployed like myself. It is sad to lose a friend but she is in a better place now, or at least I hope so. She was such a kind person and was very comforting. I didn't get to meet her in person but she was a good friend nonetheless.

I have some photos to post when I get the chance... so you all can see my progress. I have started a herb and vegetable garden which will help me to eat healthier and at a more affordable rate.

I hope you are all doing well and had a great holiday!

    I firmly believe the only true failure is giving up - and you obviously have not! There will always be adjustments, set backs, and disappointments. How you recover from them is what defines your success. emoticon
