Back to it....

Thursday, September 17, 2015      7 comments

Went off the rails for about a month. Not in the way that I used to....but enough to make me think hard about where I was headed. I am in Day 4 of being back on track. I feel better. I am more resilient as the daily "excitement" comes up.... Read more

Good Ending to a Bad Day

Thursday, June 11, 2015      4 comments

Yesterday had some real stressors. Didn't eat over them AND went back to the gym. The gym has a "real scale." For a long time, I pretended it was not there. For three years. Scale obsession was a problem of mine. In order not to hav... Read more

Taking Away the Power of Cravings

Monday, June 08, 2015      4 comments

Food has been my best buddy for most of my life. This is a relationship that I am always working on ....always. Cravings for things---and you can bet it is not celery---have derailed me before. This round, I am trying to do things differe... Read more

Despite last week...

Tuesday, June 02, 2015      4 comments

Okay...last week I did go off the rails a bit...not as badly as I might have in the past...but still off the rails. This time, though, I chose what I would eat and knew that I would be getting back on plan because I WANT TO do that. The p... Read more

Talking Myself Out of Things

Sunday, May 24, 2015      0 comments

This past week I have been talking myself out of things...not out of exercising as I usually do..but out of eating things that I normally turned to in moments of stress. I have, to kept myself out of the auto-feed bag, been promising myself so... Read more

Another week into the streak!

There are days I take this a half day at a time. I have had a few rough moments this week when "the whispers" started. Instead of letting those urges grow and giving in to them, I worked through it and figured out a different way. This tim... Read more

Still on a roll. Yes. I do feel better. The food choices are not bad...and I am not at all unhappy with the way that I eat. Eventually I will have to start to cook again. I have gone out to eat a few times. Planning and research be... Read more

Into Week Four

Thursday, May 07, 2015      2 comments

This is a day at a time thing for me this round. I was surprised when I realized that I have slid into week four. No, I have not been perfect. Yes, I have done very well. I have been planning, planning, planning. I have been moving more... Read more

Finishing Up Week Two

Tuesday, April 28, 2015      2 comments

This is the end of week 2 of my "Doctor's Compliance" plan. The doctor I am working with is very good....and knows a lot about the psychology about why people eat...why people hold on to fat....and how to help people change their own minds abo... Read more

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      3 comments

Spring is not a time I enjoy. Many of the very difficult things that have happened in my life, happened in the spring. Spring is usually when depression is at its worst. This spring, I hit bottom. This spring I got back up. I decid... Read more
