This is me. Jen. I have lost 50 pounds and gained back 11. And it feels as if it may as well be another hundred. So I have this problem. Well, I think it is more a sympt... Read more
Went on a long hiatus but now I'm back!
Sunday, January 11, 2009      3 comments

So I went away on a mini vacation/family trip and it was great! BUT I am back and up to 219 pounds. That is 11 pounds in a month! That was no surprise as I didn't do any calorie counting while I was away and I felt myself gaining. But I really d... Read more
The reality of my eating disorder...
Tuesday, November 11, 2008      5 comments

So I had a major 2 week long bingeing episode. It all started with this apple pie I baked for a contest. (I won the Blue Ribbon and some cash, by the way, and didn't eat any of *that* pie..you can see *that* pie pictured below) But then, one nig... Read more

This pic was taken June 25 while I was vacationing in Alaska. I was happy and I didn't even eat that marshmallow! But the fire sure felt and smelled good. This reminds me to keep my eye on why I am really doing this. I need to remember that what... Read more
Just...STOP for a minute, World!
Monday, October 06, 2008      3 comments

So I just took this pic from my bedroom window. I live in the largest deer-populated county in the country and I see dozens a day this time of year. I realized that when I was taking this photo, I was relaxing and doing nothing except enjoying w... Read more
Back on the cardio wagon, sore as heck!
Thursday, October 02, 2008      4 comments

So I did my 2 mile hike/jog today and it was just ok. I wasn't feelin' great during it, though. My legs did that crazy tensing up after just 1/4 mile then I was jogging against that terrible burn. Usually I love the burn but this was different. ... Read more
I'm back from Vegas, the most fun place in the world!
Wednesday, October 01, 2008      2 comments

So I am back from FABULOUS Las Vegas. I had so much fun I actually cried when I got on the plane home. I am happy to see that some of my buddies have checked in on me, thank you ladies! So Vegas was beyond anything I could have ever expected. An... Read more
No binging for 6 months!
Thursday, September 18, 2008      3 comments

I realized today that I have reached a milestone that I hadn't even given thought to. I haven't binged in 6 months. I have sat down to a dish of ice cream, or a slice of cheesecake as I cannot and will not deny myself an occasional naughty. But ... Read more
F I F T Y (that's 5-0) pounds DONE!!! (Actually 51, but who's counting?)
Tuesday, September 16, 2008      5 comments

So I have been MIA for a week. Life happens. The past week has been challenging - several family crises smooshed in with everyone in the house having wicked colds has made concentrating 100% on what needs to be done here impossible. But now I am... Read more
Weigh in day, and down 3 pounds.
Friday, August 29, 2008      6 comments

YAY! I weighed in today and am down to 210 for a loss of 3 pounds. What is weird is that for 2 weeks I had no loss. I think eating lots of restaurant food when MIL was down last month contributed to a 'stall', along with high sodium. That time o... Read more
My husband is rewarding me with a tummy tuck...
Thursday, August 28, 2008      3 comments

My husband told me he has decided to treat me to a tummy tuck/breast lift for an ultimate reward when I get to my goal. I was looking at my body in the mirror last night, and had a moment of clarity. I love the fact that I am getting leaner and ... Read more
Is this a plateau??
Tuesday, August 26, 2008      5 comments

Ok, I think this is a plateau. I haven't lost in 2 weeks. I have been just doing what I need to do. No binging, no abnormal eating patterns. I have been getting more cardio in mostly from hiking with my pack on and jogging. I am drinking tons of... Read more
Ok, water! Apples! Yogurt! STAT!!!
Wednesday, August 20, 2008      6 comments

Omg, I am overjoyed at the tremendous support I received on my blog...I see that I am RIGHT where I should be. Since starting Spark in April, I have binged only a handful a times. I used to do it daily. That is a huge success. I had a setback, n... Read more
I binged...why do I do this?
Tuesday, August 19, 2008      6 comments

I am so perplexed with myself. I know that binge eating is the main reason I am fat. I have had such a good grip on the cravings to binge. Last night, my husband said, "I bought a bag of those new Banana Oreo's.." and that was all that had to be... Read more
I want to climb a rockwall....
Thursday, August 14, 2008      5 comments

Today I was talking to a family member recalling one of the most horrible moments I had as a fat girl. I was at a carnival and my family wanted to go on a ride. We waited in line for a while and when it was our turn, we all proceeded to the cars... Read more
