Wow, it's been much too long since I wrote a blog. Unlike previous months/years, it's not because I've been wildly off track. I'm proud to say I'm still living binge-free. And Christmas Day will mark 90 days of being entirely binge-free... Read more

Funny how sometimes things seem to converge around the same point--like the universe is conspiring to send you a message or make you see something it knows you'd benefit from seeing. I feel like that's been happening this week. I've peruse... Read more

I'm having a SUPER negative day today. I woke up feeling a little out of sorts, and it's just continued on. I think I've mentioned before that since I stopped bingeing on food and alcohol, I have a lot more emotions that come up--I feel a lot ... Read more

Hooray for those! I did a boatload of laundry yesterday, and in my scramble to put it all away last night, I came across some jeans in my closet I hadn't tried on in a while. So I debated about whether or not to try them on (it hasn't be... Read more
