Day 1 - 9/15
Yesterday I started again. This is it. My brother is planning a wedding and right now my body issues would overshadow the event. I don't want that. So I started again.
Yesterday I worked out for 40 minutes at the gym before work. I didn't p... Read more
I just want to crawl under the covers and have a good cry!
And there's no good reason for it. I'm just lonely and disappointed in myself.
So here's what has been going on for the past month...nothing but eating a lot of junk! I go to the store, I get chips and chocolate. Then that is my dinner. It'... Read more
time to get honest with myself
Life has been tough recently and I don't think I've really let myself accept much of what is going on around me. First, I'm eating junk all the time. And I'm pretty numb when I'm doing it, so I know that I'm trying to feed my emotions instead of... Read more
Finding myself again...finally.
I still have a long way to go, but I'm starting to feel like myself again. The sun is out more, the snow is starting to melt, I can almost feel myself being able to walk outside again. So great!
Last night I worked up a great sweat at the g... Read more
Medical Updates and moving forward
Happy Monday everyone!
It has been a rough week for me, although in comparison to what my friends are going through, this isn't huge. I seem to be taking on the emotions of my friends going through surgery and the fact that they are fightin... Read more
Thanks for the support everyone!
Thank you so much to everyone who kept my friend in their thoughts/prayers yesterday. The surgery was successful, my friend was really enjoying her meds last night! She's feeling the surgery more today. They did not get the entire tumor... Read more
I know that not everyone considers prayers in the same way, some really believe in the power of prayer, some just send happy and healthy thoughts...all of that is appreciated today.
I have a friend who is having brain surgery this morning, ... Read more
Wheat Belly author and the Best Question Ever
I'm so grumpy this winter. I can just tell that I'm depressed and desperate to be outside walking again. But I draw a limit to walking outside when there is a negative sign in front of the temperature. I'm a fan of four seasons and hate that I'm... Read more
self-loathing continues...but I will turn this around
Back in November, I hit a rough patch, and I have used that rough patch as an excuse for the past few months. I've gained back more than 25 pounds and I am miserable.
I spend the entire day thinking about binging after work. I'm spending wa... Read more
No more celebrating for me...
I have thought about writing this blog every day for the past few weeks, even have it on my "to do" list. But when it comes down to it, I just haven't had the patience and courage to put into words how bad I've been feeling.
For the past y... Read more
What a month! Time to celebrate!
I want to be someone who blogs every day, but most days I don't have the patience to put my thoughts and feelings together coherently for someone else to read. That's why this blog is almost a month later than the last one.
But I am celebra... Read more
When life gets hard, I eat. But I should exercise.
Life has been hard. I know it doesn't compare to the challenges that someone else may be facing, especially on this historic day, but for me, it's been hard. There has been less time to plan ahead for food, more travel for family events, increas... Read more
Clothes shopping was so terrifying!
Based on the comments of my friends, family and colleagues, I went shopping this weekend for new clothes. My old stuff was way too big and I had avoided it as long as I possibly could. I have been putting it off because I am poor, or it feels th... Read more
Today we celebrate!! 73 pounds lost and I feel like dancing!
Thanks for all of the comments on my last blog about my fear of change and losing weight. I felt so much better after I got out all of those emotions and started to deal with them. So much better in fact that I lost 6 pounds in... Read more
For the first time since getting healthy, I'm scared to continue...
Wow, it feels good to just write those words out to the world. I haven't had the guts to say it to myself outloud yet. The truth is that I've lost 67 pounds and I'm comfortable where I am. I am back to the size I was in graduate school almost te... Read more
