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

In the continuing saga of trying to find a fancy-schmancy dress for not one, but TWO fancy-schmancy weddings... I found several dresses on a site called jjshouse. They have an option to have the dresses made custom, so I got five kinds of ... Read more

I'm writing this because I need to get it out. My husband's Brother and Sister are both getting married this year. NOT to each other. His brother's wedding is in April. My husband is a groomsman. The reception is being held in a... Read more

Today is all that matters

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      2 comments

Trying so hard to stay in the present. Trying even harder to keep the hounds at bay. The hounds = the overwhelming all-consuming torturous urges to eat for comfort, taste, pleasure, stress... Realized today how blasted long I've been... Read more

Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose

Sunday, August 17, 2014      5 comments

The more things change, the more they stay the same. And so it goes. In the almost 4 months I've been gone, I've lost weight and gained weight. I've been in a hole of panic, anxiety, and depression. I've stuck to a healthy ... Read more
