I spend a lot of time thinking about what I am going to eat next. I eat too fast, I eat when I am hungry and when I am craving. Why can't cravings be for healthy, low fat, low calorie items?!! When I eat breakfast, I enjoy it and savor it. But a... Read more

I signed up for epic to get more support. We are new to the area and I still don't know anyone here. This is a big time of transition for us; especially me. I still have one homeschooled son at home who also has a job. Hubby is strongly encourag... Read more

I suppose I could choose to see this as me 'failing yet again', but I am choosing to say that I am making a conscious decision to move in a healthier direction. It is a lot like the Christian walk. We all have "besetting" sins- the ones that kee... Read more

I have a hard time getting myself to exercise and I fell off the diet wagon and am fighting sugar cravings all day every day. Last week, I made a positive step by signing up on cool running for the couch to 2K program. It looked like an easy fit... Read more

What an experience. We aren't Jewish, but we decided to observe passover in our home. It was incredible! Definitely different, but completely wonderful!! I know I blew my calories today, and I only got to walk for awhile at the school while DD w... Read more

I have found that food keeps me busy in the afternoon. Apparently, I get tired and so begin thinking, "What can I eat?". I don't know if it is just to keep me occupied so I don't think about taking a nap, or if it is just a distraction. I have f... Read more

It almost feels too late to be journaling for this week. It has been difficult so far. I guess eating healthy is a chore when you aren't used to it. I am now at the weight range where typically I level out and eventually quit trying. I don't wan... Read more
