10 days so far
I have been wheat free for 10 days now (today will be day 11). While I do feel better about it, I've noticed something else: I've eaten WAAAY too much candy! In fact, I've been having crazy sugar cravings! It's nuts! I've been thinking about it... Read more

Wow. I cannot believe it's been so long since I've posted here.
I have fallen and gotten back up so many times it's not even funny. The good news is that since the 16th, I have consistently tracked all my food, and have made more of an effort... Read more
Well, No Help There...
Yesterday my sister, my brother, my mom, and I went to the gym. I had a good workout, and I finally started feeling better after having coped with food for the stress that I'm experiencing because of school. On the way home, we were talking and ... Read more
Unexpected source of Motivation

We've been living with my parents for about a month now. I will definitely say that I struggle with a lot being there. We decided to forgo the storage unit, and we donated a lot of the furniture we had, and will be selling our washer and dryer.... Read more
Big Changes for 2014
So after much thought, it was decided that Adam and I won't be able to afford to live on our own at the rental house. Instead, what we will have to do is move back into my parents' house. We are going to put in our 30-day notice on Monday. I'm a... Read more
