Emotional eating & health concerns
I've been having a problem recently with my eating. I know it is stress related. 3 years ago, I would have never had the awareness I do now. The problem is, even though I know why I am eating, I still do it.
I believe it would help if I was... Read more
Frustrated with SP
I'm feeling frustrated with SP. I hate to say that because I've been a member for... 7 years, I think. But I am. I think that maybe the site has become too large with too many users for the SP staff to really be able to handle.
I say this ... Read more
/Rant mode on
I'll be honest- I think gastric bypass and gastric sleeve are a joke. I've worked in a surgeons office who performed these operations and I've seen the people loose hundreds of pounds, only to gain it back again within a year or two because the... Read more
Trials and tribulations
I am pretty happy with my current size- I am a 12-14. I would like to be an 8-10, but I think I have reached the point where I need change things up a bit as far as my routine.
I am making a point of doing zumba as my cardio one day per wee... Read more
Mashed potatoes are underrated
I have a bunch of white potatoes and sweet potatoes sitting in my kitchen that I got out of my bountiful basket a couple of weeks ago. I made 'mashed potatoes' tonight as part of my dinner, and what a treat that was. I used a single TBSP of half... Read more
Alone on Thanksgiving
This is the first major holiday since my relationship ended, and I am spending it alone. I won't go into how lonely I feel and my disappointment, because I am pretty sure I don't need to.
So, since I am alone, I decided I am going to make ... Read more
Not feeling it today
I didn't sleep great, which makes my normal routine difficult by itself. But I also started my period (a week early! Thanks, uterus) and am dealing with cramps and my normal period lethargy.
I know I should go to the gym, but I am just so t... Read more
So hungry! Suggestions appreciated.
I find myself, just about every night, becoming hungry and eating after dinner. Last night I actually ate twice after supper- A quesadilla, and then 3 of my little bran muffins.
I am not really sure why this is. It it not because I am not e... Read more
What to do when you only have tomatoes?
So I am almost out of fresh vegetables- I still have apples and pineapple and some frozen fruit, but as far as vegetables, all I have is tomato- and some celery, now that I think about it. I cannot afford to go to the grocery store, and my next... Read more
Taking a break from the boards
I used to love scrolling through through the message boards, reading peoples posts, getting suggestions and posting ideas or comments of my own.
Lately, though, it seems like the mood of the boards is a lot more negative- There is a lot of ... Read more
Before and after
Well, not entirely after.
I'm down 60lbs, which is a pretty remarkable feat.
Some days, though, I feel like I cannot see the change in me. Even with the old "before" pictures I had on my page, I would struggle to see the difference.

I over ate tonight. I did pretty good early in the day, but just now I ate about 4 meals worth of chinese (with brown rice, and egg rolls).
I am pretty sure I know why, too. There are a couple of reasons, actually:
1. This clinica... Read more
Maybe I should say, TRYING FOR acceptance. Not from others, but from myself.
I emotionally ate last night. I got overwhelmed thinking about what a crappy week it had been, thinking about my ex, school, work, money, my period is about to s... Read more
My way or the highway!
This attitude really bugs me. IT's like they feel if you do not do exactly what they want you to do, then what you are doing is worthless, which is completely unfair.
For example- If you read while working out, you are not working hard e... Read more
Seriously, what the heck?
This is a rant, I'm just letting you know right now.
Why would someone ever consider doing something like the hCG diet? If there has never been a reputable study that shows it works, and infact can cause some major MAJOR health problems (k... Read more
