I was tired today and didn't want to do anything active. I procrastinated and procrastinated, made excuses, and ultimately reached 11 PM saying that one day off was not a big deal. I blew my calorie count today too (although actually nowhere near as badly as I thought) so I felt pretty cruddy. And guilty. And then I thought about how it is ALWAYS tomorrow.

Sat, 22 Jun 2013 22:05:41 EST Day 1 I'm tired of not being the person I want to be. I never thought I would be at this low of a point in my light. The only thing that I can truly say that makes it bearable is my daughter. She is amazing- a beacon of hope. I need to get back to the right path. But it is SO hard. <BR> I've never had a good relationship with food- ever. My home life when I was young was better than so many, but lacked some fundamental things- namely affection and time from my mother. I have only ever said t... Sat, 22 Jun 2013 01:14:35 EST
