I've been hesitant to write here. Last year was quite depressing for me, and frankly, a wash. It just hit me that after finishing college, I still ended up doing jobs that I didn't even need a degree for-jobs that I set out to avoid by going to ... Read more
the Importance of Choice
I feel like ever since I admitted to myself that I have an addiction to food, I've used it as a crutch. The reality is that I have lost weight before. I have before, and I can again. Addiction or not, everything boils down to choice. Addiction ... Read more
Started Personal Training
I had my first session of personal training last Thursday. Man I got my butt kicked! I have a feeling that things are going to really start getting better though! One other thing that I am excited for is seeing the original counselor that I saw... Read more
Time for another Strategy
Work has been going well. I have been out of training for 4 weeks now. My fiance also got a job there. He will be starting on the 6th. Financially, we're going to be set. I am so thankful and happy.
Health wise, I have fallen back into old ha... Read more
I quit my job yesterday
I was offered employment closer to my home, so I decided that it was time to quit the job that required commuting 20 miles each way. On top of that, my co-workers were not very polite or accepting of me. There were 6 of us-all women, and approxi... Read more
It's Been A Very Long Time. I Am Ready To Come Back
Since my last post, Adam and I graduated with our BA's with honors. I was lucky enough to have a job at a local clinic as a scheduler that I started working the week after I graduated. We finally moved back out. Unfortunately, the toll it took o... Read more
Banishing the Negativity!

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
Spring has Sprung!
I was so happy to finally finish Winter term! I am officially on Spring break, but I still have to do some research relevant to my senior project. I can't believe I have about 85 days until I graduate! I started a count-down in my planner around... Read more
This is seriously really hard! It's difficult to just uproot my entire diet! Needless to say, I've stumbled quite a few times over the last three or four days! I've gone from being afraid to eat anything to the mentality of "aw, who cares, I've ... Read more
I have totally overhauled my diet, and I have to say, I feel much better. I don't have the pain that I was experiencing before.
On Friday, I went to the casino and the buffet with my fiance and his family. His sister was visiting from Illinoi... Read more
A More Serious Wake-Up Call...
So, these last couple of weeks (okay, more like three or four) I've been having some stomach pains nausea, and in particular, pain on my right-hand side just below my rib cage.
Because I FINALLY got health care, I decided to go to the doctor ... Read more
Woah, is the month already almost over!?
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
