Where I've been... a journey from Hyper to Hypo.
Sunday, June 16, 2013      3 comments

Over the last couple of years I'd had an increasing frequency of odd and worrying symptoms. The worst was increasing severity and frequency of racing heart and heart palpitations. There were other symptoms that I didn't initially connect (imagin... Read more
My New Super Powers!

It's been a few years since I started this journey. I haven't lost all the weight I want and I've had a few setbacks, but I am still much happier and healthier than I was several years ago. The goals I set for myself were to regain my health,... Read more

OK, so I am really sensitive to drugs. Besides taking 1/2 doses of most medicines, I react strongly to things like caffeine and alcohol. Lately, I've had issues with my heart racing. Between my allergy medicine, asthma inhaler (allergy induce... Read more

I just came back from a week at the beach. A week without my dishes, where I know how much each bowl and cup holds. A week without my little kitchen scale that will tell me how much to eat in either ounces or grams. A week without my di... Read more

Last week we went to the beach. My in-laws rented a beach house and took us (and the grandkids!) to the beach. We went to Bethany Beach, DE. I love it there. Bethany and Rehoboth are both small quiet beach towns and we had a fantastic time. ... Read more

My allergies are really kicking my butt. I am drowsy and fuzzy headed all the time. I take allergy medicines, but I am REALLY allergic to ragweed. Also, I can no longer take the drug that works best because I developed side effects. So I'm s... Read more
Different Stress

I'm totally stressed again about...the car. This is not the first time. Since about April at least one of our cars has been in the shop most of the time. We've only had a few weeks here and there where something wasn't broken. I can't ev... Read more

I keep getting on here to log my food and see how all my SP buddies are doing and to try to blog. Instead I barely log my food and get off again. Every time I try to write, I'm too drowsy or fuzzy headed to finish. I can't even write a quick ... Read more
It's still a miracle, every day.

I got up on the scale this morning and was at 193. Several days ago I was at 193.8 and then my weight "went invisible". I retain 2-4 lbs of water during my period so it is pointless to weigh myself. I occasionally do just to see if the water ... Read more

Biology, Potato Chips and Invisible Weight Loss
Friday, July 22, 2011      1 comments

It's that time of the month again. The time where I retain water like a cactus, get belligerent about my food choices, and every injury I've had in the past year flares up. What I hate most, though, is the “invisible” weight loss. During this... Read more
Breaking Addiction - Lessons Learned
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      4 comments

After changing almost all of my food and exercise patterns over three years, I was surprised to find that I was still fat. Fit fat, but still fat. I had told myself at each change that I just needed to fix "one more thing" and the weight would... Read more
My Feet Never Hurt Any More!
Wednesday, June 29, 2011      2 comments

Ok, so I got fit before I got thin, and, while this means I have more energy, am more flexible, am healthier, etc. my feet would still get tired easily. Unless I wore my Asics all the time, by the end of the day my feet would be killing me and ... Read more

Monday, June 27, 2011      3 comments

I'm trying to get down all of the critical things that I learned on my journey to break my addiction before I can no longer remember them. Already, the new 'thin' way of thinking feels normal. Remembering how I thought and what I felt before i... Read more

Saturday, June 25, 2011      4 comments

For those of you looking at my most recent photo, you may not understand why I say I am thin. But you are not seeing the inside of my head. You see, I have BROKEN my food addiction. This took a lot of work, but now that it has happened, weigh... Read more
