I had an eye opening experience the last couple of weeks. Actually, a few. First of all, I'm not just an emotional eater. I am addicted to food. It is my drug of choice, and I admit it. If anyone has any sites/articles about this, I would ... Read more

Friday, March 16, 2012      3 comments

Well, I've learned a lot this week. Food was really a stinker for me. I'm an emotional eater, and my evenings can be very stressful, so my natural tendency is to eat. I've convinced myself that my life is out of my control in the evenings ... Read more

I had a good laugh with myself today! I realized that whenever I'm frustrated, someone puts me down, feeling bad about myself, sad, nervous, etc. etc., I subconsciously wander to the pantry. Now that I am better at tracking my food and paying at... Read more

Well, this is my third day in a row of doing my exercises! It takes me about an hour, and I am up to 15 minutes of running!! Well, actually it's more like jogging. I'm only to a four on the treadmill. :) But, I'm proud of myself. I've hear... Read more
