Today I completed the Whole30 challenge. Day 30. Boom. If you aren't aware, the Whole30 is set out in "It starts with Food". If you haven't checked it out, I totally recommend it. For 30 days, I skipped: - Sugar - Grains - Soy... Read more

On being down but not out

Sunday, September 07, 2014      6 comments

It is hard for me to make a comeback so long and with so much time and space between comebacks. It is hard for me to see my face and to read these past blogs watching myself obsess over numbers and grams. I can still feel the gut-wrenching ... Read more

Thursday, November 07, 2013      8 comments

I am so sad to admit that all the weight I had lost since restarting my clock is back. And it brought friends. I don't know why I cannot control my eating at the moment, but I'm trying to give myself a wee bit of grace. Afterall, I've been... Read more

Day 43: Progress isn't a straight line

Friday, October 25, 2013      4 comments

Today's a special reminder that progress is not a straight line. It's not a math equation. It's one day forward. One day oops. Three days forward. One meal oops. It's because life- life happens. I was derailed by a pregnancy and some bad a... Read more

Things are still going pretty well. I've had a couple "no-no" meals this weekend, but the scale is still going down. Shocker: I guess it's not all or nothing right now. There has been lots of celebrating lately and it's a great place ... Read more

Day 21: Weigh in #fail

Wednesday, October 02, 2013      2 comments

Yeah, so today I was supposed to weigh in. Aaaaaanndd I didn't. There was a house inspection at the crack of dawn, and I literally {okay, fine, figuratively}didn't breathe until 11 am. So by the time I stepped on the scale, I had already eaten,... Read more

Well, I've been tracking my carbs the last four days and I was SHOCKED to discover that I'm eating in excess of 500 grams of carbs a day! Yowzers! My calories are in range for breastfeeding- around 2000-2500 each day. I was really surprised by m... Read more

So, it wasn't the very best of weeks. In addition to the binge on Saturday night, I've eaten out for one meal Sunday, Monday and yesterday. It's a lot of processed foods. And my body despises processed foods. So I was both happy and ... Read more

Sunday, September 22, 2013      6 comments

Last night was bad. Like whoa bad. As I've mentioned about 165 times lately, I've been really going through a hard time lately. And I know that I control the food I put in my gob, but sometimes, it feels like it controls me. Yesterday... Read more

Day 9: I think I have a drinking problem.

Friday, September 20, 2013      2 comments

*note to say that this is not very interesting. I just need to blog SOMETHING to stay accountable ;) For being a nursing mother, I thought I wasn't very thirsty. I'd drink a liter of water during the day and a couple of mugs of Rooibos tea... Read more
