100 Days of Eating With Dignity
I have struggled with bingeing for as long as I can recall. The first time I remember bingeing I was about 8 years old. I was left alone for long hours while my mom, a single parent, worked. I was very, very lonely. I remember finding a crock of... Read more

Reflections on 2013
So, today is New Year's Eve. Wow, 2013 went fast! It's been a pretty good year for me overall. Family is happy and healthy, job is going well, and I've learned some things about myself.

Thanksgiving is speeding towards us! I have nothing ready but the menu is pretty much set in stone by my daughter so that will be easy!
Turkey: simply cannot go without that! Simply roasted with garlic, lemon, and rosemary.
Stuffing: ... Read more
Yes, I know, the month is 1/3 over already, but that's the way things have been going lately!
October was not a fabulous month for me as far as putting my healthy habits in the forefront. I ended up gaining 0.3 pounds which isn't bad consid... Read more
I am going the wrong direction. I have been in a slump for most of September. I have gained to the point of being 200.5 yesterday morning. I really don't want to stay above that number! BUT, I know what to do and I'm not doing it. What's up with... Read more
Getting Out of My Own Way
For the past year or so I've been gaining and losing the same 5-10 pounds. I'll get serious, then get down to the low 180s and decide I "deserve" to try this or I want to eat that. As a result, I'm where I was a year ago. I look at it as practic... Read more
What I've Learned About Binges
I've been struggling with staying on any food program lately and my weight and psyche both show it. I've been binging regularly, and not on cucumbers and celery sticks. I do know my spirit feels wounded. My relationship with food definitely need... Read more

Wheat and Cravings
Since February 9 I have been without wheat or other grains. (I remember the date because I had just come home from a girls' getaway!) I did South Beach phase 1 for 2 weeks. During those 2 weeks I felt so good I started reading and researching so... Read more
How I made Myself My Own Valentine
Last week I found myself at Kroger on the way home from work. Not an unusual occurrence at all, but I was prowling in addition to picking up forgotten items for dinner. Truthfully, I didn't "need" anything for dinner. I was there for a fix. Some... Read more
DECIDE to Just Do It!
Iíve been struggling with what my DECIDE will be for the BLC Just Do It challenge. I feel like it has to be something huge but thatís my own interpretation. Iíve decided Iím going to call it my procrastination with signing up for walks. I walked... Read more
I do NOT set time-based weight loss goals. I know that my body will do what my body is going to do and I really can't control that. What I CAN control is what I eat, what goes on in my head, and how much I move, so my goals are based on those th... Read more
