7/11/17 I cant believe it has been almost a year since I have stepped into this place. Shame Shame on me. Still standing in the same spot, feel like I am banging on the glass yelling, but no one can hear.

I am constantly trying to find ways to keep myself motivated. I have decided to post weekly weigh-ins here so that I will be holding myself accountable. Up until now I had been only recording weigh-ins on my ticker when there was a loss. If I gained any back I didn't want to see the bunny go backwards so I just ignored it. I need to stop denying the truth so here goes:
7/11/2017 206.5
7/28/2015 250.0 growin a human in here-so yeah
1/4/2015 203.0 lets stop this trend now!

Personal Information:

Other Information:
Sugar is worse than drugs... at least public perception of street drugs is correct.
My mom used to say SUGAR! instead of saying
$#@! the other s word.
Its too bad our govt is too busy devising a twisted web of busywork that distracts from the fact that our food supply has become less nutritious and is causing all this chronic disease. That if we just went back to the old way of eating--real food-- the act of paying for health care would not be the daunting crisis that it appears to be.

    Thank you for reading my blog and for being supportive. I have struggled with NES since I was 15 and anorexic. I was so ashamed of eating that I would be compelled to eat at night...My appetite got the best of me and I would HATE myself for caving in. Now , however, I can see how it probably saved my life. I weighed 85 pounds and it was only in those night time raids on the kitchen that I ate anything at all. NOW however, it is just a liability.Thanks again for your kind words.

    Thanks for the blog comments! Wow, that was a blast from the past. I did really well on SlowCarb, but ultimately my food addiction and binging tendencies made the cheat day an exercise in overindulgence. After doing it for 3 months, I found that cheat day hard to limit to one single day, and I would end up eating poorly, really poorly, for half the week. That coupled with some serious injuries that limited my ability to exercise led me to gain all the weigh (and then some) back. But, on the bright side, there are some things that I took away from the book that have made me a healthier person:
    1. I eat veggies with my breakfast almost every day. I rarely have toast/cereal anymore, I almost always have eggs with chopped veggies or sauteed kale/spinach. It really makes me feel great.
    2. I love beans and eat them a lot, like 2 meals/day. It keeps me fuller longer, especially on workout days.
    3. I still take the alpha lipoic acid (although I only do 2xday, not 4) and the garlic supplements. I feel like those benefit me the most. Alphalipoic is great for skin, and the garlic is good for keeping my blood thinner (I have high platelets).
    4. I still do the 6-minute ab routine. It's so easy and I think it's pretty darn effective considering the small amount of time you put in.
    5. I'm planning on working on the strength training part of the book once my nagging injury clears up and I'm cleared to do free weights again.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions!
