" My goal is to live the truly religious life, and express it in my music. If you live it, when you play, there's no problem because the music is part of the whole thing. To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life!.-Annonymous
well now, this is a group i belong in! binging, snacking and night time eating are pretty much my biggest problems. i don't binge nearly as bad as i used to, but once upon a time i would cook whole meals in the middle of the night. and i actually wouldn't remember them until i saw the dishes in the sink the next morning.
anyway, i am starry, aka charlene. i am a 51 year old mom of three grown sons. they are all about to make me a mother-in-law, as they are all either engaged, or saving to buy the ring. the first wedding is in may, and i'm trying to lose 30 lbs for the big party! i've gained and lost so many times. my biggest loss was 167 lbs in 13 months. i was so proud of myself, but then re-gained 80. lost that, now i've re-gained 30. i hate doing this to myself.
i have always had eating disorders. was anorexic in high school, bulemic as a young mother. i was able to stop those bad behaviors, and just settled for compulsive overeating.
right now i'm living in north carolina, transplanted from iowa. my partner and i have two drive thru coffee shops. i get to invent the recipes, which is fun. i don't work there though, she doesn't pay me enough lol. i am an inventory/auditing clerk in a big warehouse. the fun part is i get to drive a forklift. doesn't sound very girlie (which i defnitely am) but i do it with style...
