My weight issue is not new. My weight issue is not unknown. My weight issue has been the issue of those I love for years. Why am I waking up now to the fact that I will die y... Read more

In the grand scheme of things, 1 pound means very little. Today it means a lot. I have shied away from the scale in recent weeks, afraid of what it might tell me. I have slipped. No, I have not returned to past eating habits, at least not en... Read more

My eating has long been a mental issue more than a physical issue. I recognize that. Sometimes I want to scream!! On the one hand I want to just stop talking about this and just do it. On the other hand, I know I will fail without the suppor... Read more

I hate scales. Scales are not my friend. Never have been. Every scale I ever used has been for the purpose of calculating a cost to me. Post office, UPS, bathroom. There must be another way to measure success. Oh, there is. I am in t... Read more

Answer: Hiding! Unwilling to look in the mirror and unwilling to even read your posts to me. I update now, not to generate messages to me for I fear I will not read them anyway, but to let those know who know what I know but don't know all, kn... Read more
