I'm not giving up on my goals, but I'm giving up on SparkPeople. I think the site has a lot to offer, but I can't get a single meal logged before the site dumps me to a page that tells me to try the refresh key. It happens as soon as I log in ... Read more
May I have high motivation every day? Please?
I sooooooooooooo get it now.
I changed somewhere deep inside the day I realized that I was stuffed, miserable, and numb because that's exactly what I wanted.
That's the default setting. I will change it. I am so much more than tha... Read more
People don't get it!
There's another community that I'm much more active with than I am this community. I've been blogging there about getting a handle on compulsive overeating, and I keep getting suggestions to go paleo or GAPS or .....
People! The problem... Read more
Just for today
I can't lose 56 pounds today. I wish I could.
I can do this:
1) Move more, sit less.
2) Log my food and stay within my calorie range.
3) Drink water, lots of water.
I broke it down this morning. If I lose 1.5 pounds per week,... Read more
I wish I could get some help
But I don't know what would help. I joined Weight Watchers for a few months, and it was down 3 pounds, up 2, down 6/10ths of a pound, up 3/10ths, and so on and so forth. I did net a loss of 12 pounds, but it took way too long and was too expe... Read more

what happens when you don't care about sex appeal
That used to be a big motivator for me. I wanted to be attractive to the opposite sex. Now the only opposite sex I'm interested in is my husband. He's not exactly in Adonis shape himself and doesn't care ("I'm nearly 60; I'm supposed to have ... Read more
I've created a monster
According to the counselor, and the assessment fits, my need to take care of anybody and everybody (including the big python I rescued) feeds into my son's need to be the "baby" and we've got a co-dependency dance going on.
Where's the fr... Read more
Overeating trigger, recovering
So it's not so much stress that prompts me to overeat, it's the come-down from a stressful situation. My life was relatively relaxed, and I had no desire whatsoever to "be good" this past weekend.
I'm afraid to weigh myself now. Sigh ..... Read more
bleary of eye, dull of brain
I don't know what is going to become of me if I don't start sleeping nights. There is no comfortable position for me - shoulders, elbows, knees, and back hurt. Plus all the drama going on around me play through my head when all else goes quiet... Read more

The best things in my life (with photographs)
1) The cantaloupe I'm eating. So juicy and sweet and wonderful.
2) My grandson (age 3) is here! He is the sweetest little guy. Last night he told me "I woved (loved) you when you were wittle." omg; how cute and sweet is that? (he's givin... Read more
Better and worse all at the same time
I thought that I wanted to get my son and his girlfriend out of my house, and when I told her she had to move out, my son went with her. Now I'm worried about their child, my grandson. Who is going to take proper care of him while they binge a... Read more

So we're haters now
If I don't like something, I'm a hater? I guess we're all haters, then, because I doubt there's a person alive who likes everything.
Some people like certain writers like Kurt Vonnegut (my husband), and other people find them intolerable... Read more
