I'm unsure of where to start so I'm sorry if this seems a little all over the place or doesn't make much sense to anyone. Early September I got a call from a rehab place where the Association for the Blind referred me to help me with my ph... Read more

I've had a difficult month. Between supporting my friend who has lost both her grandfather and her mother in the span of a month, to looking for a job, starting both physio and occupational therapy etc, I've not been doing well. I've watched mys... Read more

Over the summer I somehow developed a toe infection on my left big toe. As a result I basically had to stop running because of the pain; I biked a lot more over the summer than I ran that's for sure! The nail was not ingrown; it seemed like the ... Read more

Okay...'fessing up time. Back in April at a routine doctor's appointment, I brought up a topic that I'd been on the fence about bringing up; the fact that both my parents but particularly my mom kept bringing up anorexia and bulimia. We ch... Read more

Not quite, but pretty close to every day, one or both of my parents will make some comment about my eating/ weight/ appearance. It's becoming "normal" Stuff like "You need to eat more" "You're a stick" "I'm concerned". I try not to let it get to... Read more

For the first time ever I am at 32,037 steps for the day so far and it is not quite 4:30 pm. I'm amazed at myself. Then again, when you get up at 5 am and have the house to yourself (or at least the kitchen/dining room/living room area) you... Read more

I'm a little apprehensive about the last 2 pounds I have to lose. I lost 7 pounds fairly quickly, all in a little over 2 weeks. But I know myself. I am the type of person whose happiness depends on weight. Therefore, what's going to happen ... Read more

I am a person who is ALWAYS cold. One of the first things I do in the morning is put a sweater on. I LIVE in sweaters. I take it off for my workout but within a 1/2 hour post-workout it's back on. Even when wearing it though, I can still ... Read more

People, sometimes no matter how hard you try to get them to understand, just don't. In this particular instance I'm talking about family. When we were little my parents started the tradition of putting a box of Smarties in my Christmas sto... Read more

Yesterday, 2pm rolled around and I was just getting out of the car. My dad was dropping me off at choir practice. For a 1/2 hour we all sat around and talked, still catching up from before the summer break. Once we got started, the director remi... Read more

Recently when I told a friend I haven't seen in a while that I'd found out at a doctor's appointment in late August that I'd lost 6 pounds, another person overheard and walking over, asked me how I'd done it. So here's my list (in no particular ... Read more
