My Michaelmas/Fall festival today was wonderful, quite a lot better than I'd expected. I have been hearing of this festival for the past few years, but have never been, until today. I was there 3.5 hours and didn't even see half of it! Many peop... Read more
I've been trying to focus on non weight things that give me motivation to move forward on this healthy path, especially when I am fighting the scale. And today I have been bombarded with the realization that my brain is really working better si... Read more
Today is Michaelmas, the celebration of Archangel Michael slaying the dragon (in Christain streams Lucifer). This is a HUGE celebration in Waldorf school, and I went to school to be a Waldorf teacher, thus celebrating this for a few years. Just ... Read more

I am seeing an ebb and flow to my hunger. The last two mornings I have not been hungry at all. I forced myself to eat, and I felt really sick afterwards. This morning was the same, and I just haven't eaten. I am still not hungry and it is nearly... Read more
I know that blogging everday may be a bit excessive in some people's view, but for me it is becoming a ritual that is really helping me through the rest of the day. Each day is new, with new emotions, feelings, energy levels, and ideas of what m... Read more
