January: Fresh Beginnings!
I vanished! Like magic!
No, really, I've just got a whole lot of personal stuff going on right now. I can see why losing weight worked for me a few years back. I had the time and space in my life to 100% obsess on food and exercise. Now… i... Read more
Eating and Sleeping for Health
My sleeping struggle continues, but I do believe I've gotten my appetite back.

Can't Even Choke it Down
I woke up hungry this morning (good sign!) and decided to make myself eggs for breakfast, since I'm always low on protein, especially now. Two eggs, one piece of bread. I got less than halfway into it and was done. I made myself have a few more ... Read more
Day 4 Under 1000
