  • I am not strong

    9/14/2014 7:57:44 AM, by ICANMOTIVATEME

    I recently discovered something about myself; I have discovered that I am not a strong person. This is hard for me because I have always thought of myself as being strong. I am not talking physically strong but more emotionally/psychologically. I, like everyone else, have had some very difficult ... Read more

  • Roadblocks

    9/6/2014 7:37:16 PM, by MUSICALMOM1125

    I've been working with my therapist on "food issues" Turns out I'm afraid to loose weight. I'm scared of giving up the only constant source of comfort in my life - food. When I was a child I learned that food was all I could count on. And now I'm trying not to use it for that. Scary and hard...... Read more

    8/31/2014 5:55:10 AM, by TACDGB

    It has been a real long night. Sometimes in my life I battle with getting any sleep. I have been up all night. I took my sleep aid plus niquil as I have a cold. Nothing has worked. I spent time with God telling him what I needed. I hate when this happens. It really drains me. With having Po... Read more

    8/27/2014 7:21:11 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Today was the monthly lunch with the girls. I wasn't sure what to order. I've been doing so well and didn't want to blow it. I was hungry but I really didn't want to end up with a super-sized meal. When it came my turn to order, I told the waitress "I'll have what she's having" and motio... Read more

    My friend was killed yesterday in a car accident. She was on a scooter. She donated her organs to help others in need. Still being the sweet & giving person. This doesn't seem real to me.

  • Did someone say Pizza?

    8/26/2014 6:47:51 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    If you read my blog yesterday, you'll remember that I said I thought I'd talked DH out if bringing home pizza last night. So, guess who showed up with a family size Cowboy pizza?! Well, after all, it was his birthday. I told him I would eat one piece . . . so he cut it into 4 piece... Read more

    Had a great weekend . . . still on plan. Today's DH's birthday and I think I just talked him out of pizza and into a fresh avo/tomato wrap for dinner. (Was that bad of me?) I needed some chuckles for the day. Thought you might enjoy some too. Read more

  • Getting My "Want-To" Back

    8/22/2014 9:50:26 PM, by FLUFFYWONKENOBE

    I have struggled like you wouldn't believe since about last October, and was losing the battle ... in fact, I had completely given up on trying to reach my goal weight, and eventually gave up on even eating healthy & exercising. I would try every so often to get back on track, as evidenced by my spo... Read more

    After work last Sunday I stopped at the gas station for something cold to drink on my way home. The young (about 25) attendant asked me how I was doing. I told him I was headed home to eat lunch and hit the weight room at the gym. He said "You are in amazing shape" When I walked on home I ... Read more

    8/19/2014 11:11:57 AM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Eating mindfully is so important. Learning to identify true hunger from emotional hunger (or boredom) is key. If you're not hungry enough to eat something that's good for you (or at least not bad), chances are you're just bo... Read more
