Today was a little tough. I was just tired and felt lazy today, and sooooo hungry! BUT, I exercised, did 3 run-thrus with my accompanist, and managed to stay under 2000 calories. I didn't eat anything I shouldn't, I just ate more ... Read more
a better day

Today is a better day. I've stayed mostly on plan eating wise, and I got some exercise too! I drank 8 glasses of water, too. I got my kitchen cleaned, which also feels good. I wish I could get more housekeeping done. I wish I had more m... Read more
frustrated, disappointed

Maybe this comes as I binge watch episodes of "My 600 lb. Life", but I am disappointed and frustrated. I told myself a while ago that I could stay on plan, but I didn't. Last week, I told myself I would start anew again. Here I am today, star... Read more
new start

Monday I made the pledge to myself to get back on track. I have been on a spiraling-out-of-control binge lately, and it needs to stop. Worst of all, I saw it coming (see previous posts). Now, I need to start again. My knees hurt, my tu... Read more

This week I let it happen. I gave in to every single food desire I had, didn't exercise, and I'm up 4 lbs. I was so afraid this would happen, and it did. I'm just glad I'm stopping it now rather than in another 15 lbs. Today is a new day... Read more
20 lbs!

As of today, I am now down 20 lbs. I'm very excited to be able to post this!!! While I wish this could go faster, I know that I'm currently doing the right things. I've had "cheat days", "cheat meals," and "cheat snacks" and still have ... Read more
15 lbs.

As of this morning, I am down 15 lbs. This is a difficult process. While I enjoy the challenge of eating healthy and exercising, I am often tempted by bad choices. I get lazy and don't want to exercise. I use excuses like "it's t... Read more

I'm down 10 lbs, and I can see the difference in the mirror. But I just got back from a seminar, and several people posted pictures of me on facebook: very unflattering photos. Tonight, I just got the photos from my brother's wedding. ... Read more

I'm noticing a difference between being hungry and true hunger. There is the kind of hunger where you just want to gnaw off your arm, and then there is the kind where you want to eat but can stave it off with a little water and the situation is... Read more

I did it again. I started over. Last time I was on the plan, I was so determined, and then I lost the desire to continue. I'm not really sure why, but I'm back on track now. I'm scared I'm going to fall off plan again. At this moment,... Read more
no gain

I've been sick this week. I allowed myself 2 cheat days while I recovered. I have not exercised all week. I didn't gain any weight! I didn't lose any, either, but no gain is a plus. I feel great after the cheat days - my cravings ar... Read more
cheat day

Yesterday, I came down with a nasty cold. I was delirious on Benadryl and felt like poo. I declared yesterday as a cheat day, since I was really incapable of making any decisions. I allowed myself to rest and eat what I could. I have no regr... Read more

Today I met one of my first goals: to get below 250 lbs.! Yesterday, my boyfriend was making chocolate banana bread and I about had a panic attack. I was thinking that having this food in the house would make me binge and undo what I've be... Read more
overcoming addiction
Saturday, September 08, 2012      2 comments

I have to admit that I have a food addiction. Admitting is the first step, right? I've used food for celebration, pleasure, stress relief, soothe the pain, something to do, something to look forward to, etc etc etc. But somehow I lost sig... Read more
