Back to it! Over the past week, I've made several decisions to be proud of. I've been:
-tracking all my food
-making smoothies again (all veggies and fruit)
-moving my body more
-joined the SparkCoach premium program... Read more
Picking myself up again...
Fortunately, a couple of things have changed for the positive since the last time I said that. For one, I have now integrated into my life attendance at Overeaters Anonymous meetings twice per week. I am actively worki... Read more
And the cycle starts again...
After another cycle of losing my motivation and jumping ship, I am back. I have reached my limit. This time I am feeling more disgusted with myself, because I am at the highest weight I have ever been in my life. I was on prednisone for a goo... Read more
Celebrations for today...
- Started the day out right by getting up relaxed, listening to my DAB, breathing deeply, and being thankful for the day. I also really enjoyed the sound of the rain.
- Before making my first meal of the day, I decided to get in some empty-st... Read more
Another good day!
Well, I have now gone more than a week without making excuses for not exercising. Every day this week, I have either walked or gone to the gym, exercising no less than 15 minutes. I am celebrating my success right now!!! Woooo hoooo! I'm on ... Read more
I kicked butt at the gym tonight!

Motivation crushed in 2 seconds...
OK - so in my last blog entry, I wrote that I am trying to discover how to keep my motivation going. Well, this morning, I discovered in 2 seconds how to crush it. I weighed myself. Today, after a week of eating a bit better, but most importa... Read more
I just read over my blog from all the way back in 2007. I noticed a significant pattern. After a week or two, my biggest issue is motivation. I'm sure this is fairly common, but I think it is crucial for me to notice and acknowledge this fact... Read more
Successes for today
Celebrating my successes today:
- Even though it was raining, I made NO EXCUSES. I went to the gym and did 20 minutes on the elliptical and stretched.
- I moved my body on purpose at other opportunities during the day.
- I didn't buy a... Read more
3 out of 4 ain't bad!
OK...when I wrote last time, I had walked 2 days in a row (Thurs & Fri). I said I would no longer make excuses for not getting exercise. I would walk every day. Short of not being able to move...it was going to happen.
It would figure th... Read more
It's time again...
OK...it's time again. I'm back. I'm feeling disturbed and at my "bottom" again. I'm ready to make a change again.
Yes, I see a pattern. Yes, I see a cycle of compulsive (dare I say, addictive) behavior. Yes, I am a glutton and compul... Read more
Gained a pound... :-(
Well, I gained a pound this week! Sucks...
I was going to say it was a terrible week, but that would be "all or nothing" thinking. I had a few bad days, lots of people over this week, ate out of my plan several days, and didn't do much ex... Read more
Cardio? I don't think so...
Does playing golf on the Wii really count as cardio? I have my doubts. But I figure it's better than sitting on the couch.
I honestly don't feel like getting on the treadmill tonight.
My motivation is waning, but I will perservere. ... Read more
A bit of a rough day, physically
Today I did probably the least amount of exercise I've done in the past week and a half. I don't feel like doing the resistance training (from yesterday) or the core workouts from the 1-day challenge. I am just spent. My neck hurts, I had a head... Read more

Relapse is part of recovery, right?
They say relapse is part of recovery. Well, I'm a compulsive overeater, and for the past 6 months, I've had a total relapse.
I was losing weight, getting healthy, minding my own business (went from 245 to 200 lbs.) when WHAM! Sickness a... Read more
