All that worry for nothing. I did get some great advice and encouragement though. So I am still grateful. I read an interesting book called "Brain over Binge" this week. I think it was something I really needed right now. I do have a histor... Read more

Saturday, March 26, 2016      12 comments

My husband and I are buying a new scale today. This old one is nearly dead. But oh man do I dread stepping on a new one. I've weighed myself on other peoples scales and they always read much higher, like 5 pounds. Which means my starting weight ... Read more

Anxiety, Panic, and Self-Esteem?

Monday, July 27, 2015      2 comments

I have a real struggle with anxiety and panic attacks. I have for years. I think it grew worse after my husband was diagnosed with cancer. I think my last bit of feeling hopeful and secure was ripped out from under me that day. He got better, ou... Read more

It's supposed to hurt (A little)

Wednesday, July 15, 2015      3 comments

I didn't realize how spoiled to comfort I had become. I "couldn't" run because it didn't feel good. I "couldn't" diet because it made me uncomfortable. Only I didn't see it as merely uncomfortable or not feeling good. I thought I was dying when ... Read more

Oh, Life!

Monday, October 06, 2014      2 comments

Oh my, there has been life altering events. Luckily, we are all alive. It was more of a marital problem. One of the big ones, but rather too private to discuss here. I needed time to sort it out. Diet be darned. I will try to get back into thing... Read more

I wasn't very good this weekend. We went to a Wild West Festival on Saturday with some friends that ended us up at a Mexican restaurant where I ate Fajitas. Then Sunday I ate 3 biscuits at Popeyes, with chicken, and some rice and a few fries an... Read more

It really was a thoughtless mistake. My good friend and neighbor made me dinner tonight. I delicious meatloaf, home made fries and broccoli. It was wonderful. But duh! What is in meatloaf. Bread. In this case, Triskets of all things. I didn't ev... Read more

Eating doesn't fix it (rambling alert)

Wednesday, September 10, 2014      2 comments

I have been a food addict (still using the word loosely) since I was a teenager. Around 20 years. I hate it. But it is true. I eat when I am hungry, angry, bored, hurt, sad, makes no difference. I have mentioned all this before. Over t... Read more

I'm back. I have been here and gone more than any one person should. I don't know what to say. I am bad support that way. I wasn't planning on coming back. I had failed too often. But when I started low carb this week, I found myself too curious... Read more

I never feel full.

Wednesday, May 28, 2014      2 comments

I don't have anything interesting to say, so I am going to ramble about this: I promised myself I wouldn't diet anymore. Mostly because I slip into some really bad stuff while dieting. Binge and purge are never far behind. Deep recesses of ... Read more
