Never Let It Go
My visit to the naturopathic doctor was mostly out of curiosity; I like the idea of holistic wellness, of being preventative rather than reactionary to illness, and the idea that everything is connected. I mentioned my main concerns as weight lo... Read more
A New Approach
I visited a naturopathic doctor for the first time today. It was quite interesting. I really had no idea what to expect, but she just asked tons of questions (I was there for over an hour). And she connected a few things that made sense to me. S... Read more
Feeling a bit like deja vu; had a good day, then came home and snacked when I shouldn't have. But progress: it was a smaller snack than yesterday? At least that's good?
I'm struggling with the concept of having a "deadline" for my goal. I a... Read more
I had a good day. Then I came home, walked in the kitchen with intentions of making dinner and prepping breakfast for tomorrow, and saw the box of Golden Grahams on the counter. I was the prime example for product placement. And I ate 4 (or was ... Read more
Day 158: It Just Gets Worse
My frame of mind is in such a bad place right now. Almost every day, I just notice more and more how bad it is. I have less and less self confidence (and I had thought it was already pretty low). I dislike my body more and more (which I know I s... Read more
Day 152: How Many Times Can You Hit Rock Bottom?
It's been a rough week or so. Things just went from bad to worse.
We were on strike for 5.5 weeks and then suddenly ordered back to work by the government (not even going to get into how awful that is). Tough to get back into a work routine... Read more
Day 136: Can't Believe I Did It!
Usually I plan things. Well in advance. But today I went on a whim. I was suddenly compelled to start running again, so I did. I found my Ease Into 5k podcast and I completed Week 1 Day 1. Just like that.
I figure I haven't ran in almost 2 ... Read more
Day 134: It's Getting Easier
Yet another day were I had no choice but to eat out, and I chose well once again. I'm getting good at making wise decisions at restaurants, which is something I use to be awful at! I took every restaurant visit as a treat meal, no matter how oft... Read more
Day 131: There's Hope!
I feel pretty amazing today.
I was nervous about the weekend. I was meeting a friend in Toronto for a comedy night followed by a baseball game the next day. I knew it would mean several meals out, and the possibility of dangerous snacks.

Day 124: Don't Break The Seal
Not to pick on any particular brand of potato chip... But I am discovering that there is a whole lot of truth to the marketing "Betcha can't eat just one!". And not just for chips.
I am now entering my 3rd week on strike, so it's the picket... Read more
Day 123: Back to the Start
Weight-wise, I'm right back where I started the year, 223 lbs. Not impressive in the least. And I'm really feeling it. I feel old, I feel unhealthy, I feel big.
I made my goal for May lofty. For each day, 8 glasses of water and 5 different ... Read more
Day 101: Wanting To Not Be Angry
I feel like I'm just angry at the world anymore. I feel like I am so helpless in making things better, and it just makes me angrier.
Work makes me angry. There just seems to always be more and more hoops to jump through and less time/energy... Read more
Day 95: A Big Fat Sigh
*sigh* That's the big fat one.
The last few days have been disastrous. The last week I guess really. We've eaten out several times too many, had nachos and ice cream and chocolate. Not good. And of course the scale has gone up. So while ju... Read more
Day 89: No, I Haven't Disappeared
All goes well, busy as always.
My March goal of eating SANE 4 days a week was definitely a good one. It was tricky at times, but I did it. I also went down on the scale every week. Not a lot (I'm down to 215.6 as of last Wednesday), but I'm... Read more

Day 75: I Wish I Could Bottle Up This Feeling!
It's been a crazy week.
Two Fridays ago, I got sick. It got really bad. I never take sick days, but I was off for a day and a half (I also never leave early, but I felt brutal). DH was worried it may have become meningitis since a co-worker... Read more
