Scrolling through old Facebook photos the other day I came across a photo from October 10, 2011. October 2011 was when I truly started my journey. It was the beginning. I have not yet reached the end, and loss has slowed down, so it's hard... Read more

I was thinking the other day that I'm not a binger, and I'm not an emotional eater. However, I've established in the past that I'm a boredom eater. But I remembered something from my childhood the other day that sparked a thought: I u... Read more
Stick in the Spokes
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      11 comments

I am like an M&M. Hard candy shell with a soft, sweet interior that melts easily. By that I mean I'm pretty sensitive, in spite of my occasionally sturdy exterior. But every now and then, someone throws a stick in my spokes, and I get sad.... Read more

Parts of me I now love: 1. My clavicles 2. The indent in my back over my spine 3. My "delicate" wrists (compared to how thick they were before) 4. My now average-sized fingers (size 6.5 down from a 10) 5. My much thinner neck/face ... Read more

I think I might be thinner (at least in my face) than I was my senior year of high school. I was 17 in this photo. I didn't scale it perfectly, but I think my face looks thinner now than it did then. Thoughts? ... Read more

I am not rich, and I was raised not spending a lot on people for holidays/birthdays. Usually I'd spend $50 on my dad and less on other relatives. My birth mom's birthday is coming up at the end of September, and I was struck with the idea that I... Read more
What a Day!
Tuesday, August 27, 2013      7 comments

Today was one of those days that started off in a manner that made you feel the rest of the day might wind up in a similar fashion: badly. (Mind you, this day was overall not terrible, just somewhat irritating.) I arrived at work this... Read more
