Day 10
Saturday, April 14, 2018      2 comments

Well it is only Day 10. I feel that I have been cutting back on calories and tracking. I thought I could do this, but now I am beginning to doubt myself. I feel like I may be too far gone to be able to do this. I want to make this a lifestyl... Read more
I am finally back

Just getting back to tracking after being caregiver to a very ill child who nearly died from her anorexia. Being at a healthy weight is important but "dieting" or "eating healthy" can trigger an eating disorder that can kill you. I don't fear ... Read more
Into week two
Monday, January 11, 2016      2 comments

Had a rough weekend and even as i write this the temptation to overeat is very strong. I yielded to it yesterday. It was very stressful for me, dealing with my 2 daughters and their mental health issues, boiled over and i caved. But...that w... Read more
I'm not sure I can do this
Friday, January 08, 2016      6 comments

So i finally weighed myself. It's been a week of tracking and I haven't been eating after supper like I used to, probably 500-1000 calories fewer each day and yet, the scale hasn't moved. I have so much to lose. I thought I'd see a drop. I k... Read more
Goodbye Christmas

I know some people take their Christmas decor down right after Dec 26th or maybe January first but I wait until after epiphany (January 6th). I love the fresh Christmas tree and the sparkling lights and the peaceful feeling I enjoy when I sit l... Read more

I'm tired but thought I'd jot a note before i head to bed. A good day. I kept track and I am finding that very helpful in keeping me from over eating. I'm grateful for SP. This is a good start for me and I hope i get healthy this year.... Read more
Yield or blog
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      0 comments

The day is almost over. I'm feeding my dd#2 her meals before she goes to bed. I have used up my calories but I'm having cravings. I decided to blog instead of yielding to my cravings. I really want to have victory over these temptations. I ... Read more

I took a break from Spark People. Quite a long break. Things had been kinda rough on us with our dd#2 and her anorexia. It continues and is still a big concern in my life but I have some better support for her and I am trying to take control ... Read more

I have tried losing and even said once about not saying trying but actually doing it and that was the plan .. but alas, fate had something more in store for me. Our second child developed an eating disorder that is sucking the life out of her a... Read more

Okay...I've had enough health scares recently to make me wake up and realise that this is it. I am finished "trying" to lose weight. I need to do it! I have started to walk the dog first thing in the morning. I am tracking my food and stayin... Read more
Month 2
Friday, December 03, 2010      1 comments

Well, trying to enter daily didn't work, but the past month of November has been very encouraging to me. Even though it doesn't seem like a lot, I went down about 5 pounds. That works out to a pound a week. I think that is a good rate, especi... Read more
The Story

My DD#2 was with friends last night, watching a TV show. The other friends kept commenting on a larger woman on the show and making fun of her. My DD#2 spoke up and let them know that she didn't like hearing them talk that way. She knows how ... Read more

Well, I made it through the week. Really had trouble with eating after dinner. BUT, I have made a pact with my DD#2 and I am committing myself to, this week, really, no food after dinner. It was hard last night, but I did it! Started some kn... Read more

Saturday, November 06, 2010      1 comments

Well, today I am fighting negative thoughts about whether I actually can do this. I have had so many attempts and failures. My track record isn't very good. But I am really trying not to listen to this negative talk and am trying hard to keep ... Read more

Friday, November 05, 2010      1 comments

Well, I missed writing on day 4 and should have. I had a bad go of things last night. I had a few more worries on my mind and so I mindlessly ate to "soothe" them...and, I didn't track the evening munchies. However, I am back on track today.... Read more
