Drinking + River =Binge Eating

Starting over for the 65457 time.
This may be the umpteenth time I've started over. But, this time WILL be the last. I actually took official "before" photos this time. I want to post them, but I'm too chicken at this time. I will, but I'm not ready just yet. They were hard to l... Read more

I like to drink.
I like wine.
I like beer.
I like alcohol period.
We all know alcohol lowers your inhibitions.
For me, this means it makes me not care about what I put in my mouth.

I have nothing to wear.
No really, I have NOTHING to wear. As in, NOTHING FITS ME.
Why, you ask? Because I let myself get as big as I was when I started this journey.

I have held this secret for a long time. Now, it's time it comes out.
A long time ago, I read "The Biggest Loser" diet & exercise book. In it, it asks what type of eater you are. I am the classic "closet eater." This means that I secretly e... Read more
What do you look like?
I went for a walk/jog today. I signed up for my first 5k and it's next weekend. It was freezing cold today, with wicked wind. I made a whole bunch of excuses, but I spoke to my friend (who is fitter than I am and has lost 50 lbs herself) and she... Read more
