It's About Time!
I can't believe my last blog entry was dated 2012! I guess I haven't been very active on SP lately. It's a shame because this is one of the best places on the Web for me.
I'm still paying around with different programs. Ever since I left O... Read more
Becky Lu Jackson
I've been dealing with an eating disorder all of my life. It will never go away, and I will never be cured. Like a diabetic, I will always have this disorder (disease) and my problem is trying to find the right "medicine" for it.
I thought... Read more
August 26, 2012
Had a green smoothie for breakfast yesterday morning and by the time I got to Nancy's house, I was famished (11:30). I did the morning step class, so that made me even more hungry than usual. Having no food with me, I went directly to the snack ... Read more

Time to Reinvent Myself
It's time to reinvent myself. I'm stuck in a rut: eating too much, eating too much of the wrong foods. I shouldn't even call them foods. I should call them drugs, poison, evil; anything but "food." Food is nourishing and nurturing, the stuff God... Read more
For Today: I will track what I eat, I will stay connected to God, I will eat only three meals with no snacks, and I will dance or walk for at least 30 minutes. I will also check in with my Spark Teams and encourage another person, read something... Read more
How Do I React to Mistakes?
As a piano and guitar teacher, my students make mistakes all of the time and they learn from them! I welcome their mistakes and use them as opportune moments for teaching. Actually, those are the best times to teach, because they really understa... Read more
New Spark with The Spark
I'm reading "The Spark" again and this time I'm going to post a blog everyday to keep myself accountable. My hope is that by doing this I will be able to keep my spark alive! I'm tired of trying everything out there. Yesterday I binged, so what ... Read more
The Spark Cookbook and More
I just finished reading the Spark Cookbook and I must say that the recipes look delicious, Chef Meg's advice and suggestions are wonderful, and it is made really well (the binding allows it to stay open when you lay it down). I'm looking forward... Read more
Taking the Never Quit Pledge
I just found this on another member's page (thank you, Karen!), It's just what I need!
Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and
downs I pass through,
I will continue on my journey.
I pledg... Read more
Searching, Searching, Never Finding
I know it's all about the journey, not the destination, but I'm getting weary. I also know that the answer "lies within," but somehow it's still evading me. Do I sound discouraged and depressed? Well, yes, at least a little. I try not to stay in... Read more
No S Diet
This has got to be the best there is: it's flexible within boundaries. No Sweets, No Seconds, and no Snacks except Sometimes on days that start with S and Special Days. The creator of the No S Diet, Reinhard Engels, writes very well and has an e... Read more
Another "New" Beginning
I've started my OA90Day program so many times since November 2011, and I've had an abstinent day here and there. But, mostly I've binged everyday and have gained 17 pounds. For today, I'm just going to eat healthfully and count my calories/nutri... Read more
One Challenge Over, New One Begins!
Well, my little experiment of leaving OA90Day lasted for 3 days. With an eight pound weight gain and feeling physically, emotionally, and spiritually sick, my attitude has changed once again.
Why do I think I can do this on my own? Over an... Read more

I'm leaving OA90Day and I'm very nervous about it. I have mixed feelings and really don't know quite what to think. But, I feel the need to prove to myself that I can do this on my own; that somehow I have the power within me to follow my food p... Read more
