CARBS-Can't Always Reach Back, Sorry
Carbohydrates & sugars are some of my biggest fiends when I am trying to lose weight and am stressed. They are quick to fix/grab & I can eat them on the run, mindlessly, not thinking about the consequences.

Struggling but Succeeding

Back to Working Nights
I am so excited to begin working night shifts at an area hospital again after being away from such work for nearly 5 years. I know that I will face some challenges with my eating and tracking of foods and activities by staying awake on the wrong... Read more
Off Site means Off Track
It seems that every time I let my job or life take me away from the site, I lose control. I get "busy", then "stressed" then I go for my binge foods. This had lead me to the 3 rd time needing surgical intervention to remove a kidney stone. The m... Read more
