I got the nastiest cold over the weekend. I cannot taste or smell, so therefore I have no desire to eat. Being an emotional eater and compulsive overeater, I would think that lack of taste and smell would not stop me from eating, but it has. ... Read more

So the month of March was a total bust! I completely blew my Lent challenge goals (no binge eating, no chips, cookies, or cursing). I've actually done ok with the cursing but not the other things... I also went to the doctor to have my bl... Read more

So my personal trainer seems to think that I'm not eating enough or I'm not eating the right things. He has suggested that I cut fruit for a while to see if I lose because it has a lot of sugar and then he recommended that I increase my intake ... Read more
