I *refuse* to be one of these people who try, try, try, fail and give up. That is just not who I am. I have a very intense stubborn streak. Thus the reason that an 18 month plateau has not knocked me down. Okay, okay, okay, I will use the te... Read more

First off, I have to say a big, huge THANK YOU to everyone who gave me such amazing support in my last (very difficult to write) blog. Yet another reason I continue to use the support here! I luv you all! ... Read more
The Reality of this all
Friday, February 01, 2013      6 comments

I have tried writing and rewriting this blog several times and I can't seem to make it work and say what I want to say, what I REALLY want to say, need to say. So instead of getting cute with words, I am going to come right out and say it. ... Read more

I actually laughed out loud, the belly kind of laugh, when I saw this picture. I don't think anything sums me up quite as well as this picture does. Too funny. I t... Read more

I've missed my Sparkfriends terribly! I literally have no time to myself anymore. It gets tougher and tougher as the days pass and the kids grow. Being a mom is never dull, that's for sure. True, I have taken a bit of a step back from SP... Read more

This plunge into intuitive eating has been difficult for me. More difficult than before. I don't know why. I have been so ready for it. Fully committed to it. Maybe it is fear that keeps hanging on. Okay, I will admit it. I am afraid. ... Read more
The Voices Within
Thursday, November 15, 2012      6 comments

This venture into intuitive eating for me has been a heck of an emotional one. It has hit me one thing right after the other. It seems that just as soon as I come to terms and acknowledge one issue, I am on to the next. Admitting fully my... Read more

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      6 comments

I am fully, 100% committed to intuitive eating. I've been doing a lot of self reflection lately as I am progressing through the processes and steps of intuitive eating. Self reflection sucks sometimes, I really get a good look at how F-ed up I... Read more

Monday, November 12, 2012      10 comments

Working my way through the principles of intuitive eating, I have found one that scares the hell out of me.... The third principle of intuitive eating states: "Make Peace with Food Call a truce, stop the food fight! Give yourself unconditio... Read more
