Why can't I stop?

Friday, May 01, 2015      6 comments

I just don't get it. Years of this. YEARS. Therapy weekly, medication. I am killing myself with food. No reason to sugarcoat it (no pun intended). I read that and I "know" it's truw, and I hear it, but it somehow doesn't sink in. Do ... Read more

So much easier to stick with it when I stick with it.

Yeah, that makes no sense LOL. Or it's a keen insight to the obvious. BUT, I have noticed over these many years that if I don't eat The Usual Suspects, the struggle is much less difficult than when I have an "allowable" amount of sugar/simple ... Read more

OK, I'm not promoting or even listing websites for these clothes. If you want to know where they're from, all you need to do is a search on the common plus-size websites and you will find them. I am not affiliated with any of the companies. I... Read more

Sugar and "simple" carbs are Satan's Snacks LOL

First of all, HI AGAIN! I keep coming back here. You can't get rid of me! :) I posted some time ago about how I discovered the major impact sugar and processed carbs have on my emotions. As I get older, and my hormones do all kinds of w... Read more

Still trying.

After a few weeks of weight watchers, I starting gaining. I was extremely disgusted and sort of gave up. I had an appt to see my Dr last week and we talked about the point allowance that was assigned and it's obviously too high. I think... Read more

One week of WW

Wednesday, March 11, 2015      7 comments

I lost 7 pounds in the 8 days since I decided to start WW (again). Their Points Plus system is different from what I did with them before, and it's been so long since I officially signed up that it's taken some adjusting (what? I don't us... Read more

Carbs and depression

Sunday, March 08, 2015      6 comments

I've noticed that carbs have a huge impact on my mood lately. I know the nutritional info and how carbs metabolize, so it makes sense, BUT lately their impact is really drastic. For example, I had some pumpernickel bread for lunch tod... Read more

I think maybe it's the full moon, but everything is irritating me today. This article is here on Spark:

A letter to me, from me

Thursday, March 05, 2015      5 comments

Dear Me, I know you're in there and I want to take this time to tell you that I am trying so very hard to do what I have to, to get you out. You are yearning to have your life back, I know. You dream of walking the streets of NYC, of N... Read more

Starting WW Online tomorrow - Need a reboot

Tuesday, March 03, 2015      4 comments

I just signed up for WW online. I start tomorrow. I have been trying to do this on my own and I need more structure and discipline right now. I've done WW several times before, so it's nothing I don't already know. BUT, tracking points... Read more

Oh, yeah, it's back.

About a week ago, I woke up and the hideous food addiction/binge eating disorder, or whatever you want to call it, was gone. And it stayed gone. Until Saturday afternoon. It came back in a big whoosh and I was so disappointed that I... Read more

So, let's go shopping for dresses.

Saturday, February 07, 2015      6 comments

OK, here are the dresses that come in 8X. Knowing that I am 5'7", 417, and have almost no "bosom", I feel pretty certain I need to stick to the A-Line, and probably go with the Empire Waist. I want to avoid "shiny" fabric, because it cat... Read more

Waking up without Food Addiction

Saturday, February 07, 2015      2 comments

I woke up just a bit ago and something is missing. The thoughts of food. The wanting to eat for the sake of eating. Gone. I'm sitting here, stunned. Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth. But, it's as if someone wav... Read more

Angry today and don't want to be HANGRY today

Thursday, February 05, 2015      3 comments

I'm blogging right now in an attempt to avoid turning anger into Hanger (hungry anger). I just read a headline where another company was hacked and 80 million people have that their personal info stolen. It's a healthcare company, and yo... Read more
