Contract for success: Part 1
My Mother drives me bonkers. She gets off on her crazy whirlpool of depression and tries to drag anyone close to her into that swirling mass of complete destruction. (I'm her general target) If I let her know I'm on a diet, she bakes me a cake. ... Read more
NEVER GIVE UP!!!
Today is a new day. The last couple of months (around the time I joined SP) have been EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. I suffer from bi-polar type II (severe depression) and the fact that I lost my son in November 4 years ago adds to this in a way most can'... Read more

Bummed and confused, but NOT giving in
I want to EAT today. I want cakes, ice cream, noodles slathered with butter, bagels dripping with strawberry cream cheese. Anything that will KILL this feeling.
I have this one "friend" who calls when she wants something from me. Is that a f... Read more
Tonight I was able to get on some ACCURATE scales. I'd only lost about 3 or 4 pounds in the past week. My first response was to start beating myself up. I'd hoped it would be 10 pounds (like my husband, who is dieting with me) Instead of the neg... Read more
