Anxiety, Panic, and Self-Esteem?
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)
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

Well darn, I accidentally ate wheat

Eating doesn't fix it (rambling alert)
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,...it makes no difference. I have mentioned all this before.
Over t... Read more

I can't stay away...
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.
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
The neighbors have got to be laughing at me...
At least I am getting lots of exercise. But I am curious how many neighbors are standing at their windows and laughing their butts off.
My morning jog goes like this:
My pup is too young to leave the yard (according to the vet, she nee... Read more
Becoming a working mom, and a puppy picture
Hmm... I might be up a couple of pounds. I haven't started trying yet. I am definitely transitioning around here. I am about to start my first full time job in 10 years. I truly don't know the first thing about working full time and raising chil... Read more

Healthy isn't Always Hard. What do you find easy?

This morning breakfast was eg... Read more
