"PLOT TWIST"! *blink blink blink*
Monday, May 28, 2018      11 comments

I appreciate the support from my last blog. It's been exactly a month since I had deadly thoughts. In that time, the company that acquired mine eliminated my position and laid off the accounting manager and me. I have signed an agreement and can... Read more

Check-in: I am working hard to stay positive, after a really difficult low day last week. Wage garnishment, they refuse to negotiate. They don’t put people into debtor’s prison anymore, but it feels like I’m financially imprisoned. I was t... Read more
Foods I decline trick
Friday, February 09, 2018      15 comments

I’ve been taking a photo of “foods I declined,” and it’s been positive so far because after I take the pic and walk away it’s off my mind. It’s like a checkbox is marked and my brain is free to think about what I *DO* want to eat. I thought abou... Read more

Wednesday, January 24, 2018      18 comments

It probably shouldn’t bother me as much as it does… I have been more public about my re-entry into mindful and healthy habits. This has drawn some “support” from non-sparkpeople friends. When SparkPeople give me advice, welcomed or not, I unders... Read more

Monday I was exhausted, the night before I “splurged” on a date at the Chicken Pie Shop (my first time there.) We had chicken pot pie, big fluffy rolls, and French fries with a little slice of lemon pie for dessert. (After eliminating all carbs ... Read more
Can I lose 100 pounds this year?
Thursday, January 18, 2018      15 comments

Reality check: I was crunching my numbers today and made a realization. The max I lost was 140, and now I started this year only 40 pounds down from my original start weight here, 10 years ago. So I regained 100 pounds. That makes the math easy,... Read more
Let Go/ Hair Edition
Tuesday, January 16, 2018      9 comments

2018 is a year for letting go… The first year I was successful with SparkPeople was the first time I donated my hair. I felt happy to release the hair that I used as a cape, to cover, and to hide. At the beginning of 2017 I “wanted” to res... Read more

Car Crash, "..you heal you."

Oct 14th, about two weeks ago I was hit from behind on the freeway. My very old car protected me, and it might be wishful thinking, but after the initial injuries, I seem to be doing better. I've developed some high anxiety about driving (since ... Read more

I am desperately out of shape, it's impeding doing fun things. Sometimes in rescuing an animal, the person themselves is rescued. For me, it's easier to guide someone else through being conscientious about their eating and movement than it... Read more
