So, it's been almost 4 weeks since I've started changing my lifestyle and I've lost 15 lbs so far. Really happy about that. I got on the scale last week (which was very challenging to wait that long), and I had lost 1.5 lbs in a week. For the... Read more

I woke up this morning feeling a bit down. My fitness and diet is going great. Just feeling sad about losing touch with my immediate family 600 miles away. I have 3 brothers and they are married with kids. I heard a child cry in the mall as I... Read more

I was reading some of my older blog posts from a few years ago and one thing struck me after reading a few of them....how much I was trying to convince myself I was ready. I wanted to believe in myself I just couldn't yet. I needed to be menta... Read more

So today was my first taste of the Olympics here in Vancouver. I wasn't going to go the local Torch passing here in North Vancouver, where I live, but a friend of mine in Calgary loves the events and her excitement got me excited about it. So... Read more

There are all kinds of reasons to get to a healthy weight. Some of my issues may sound minor or inconsequential but I believe that by putting them out there for others to possibly relate to, maybe, just maybe it will help someone to see that th... Read more

OK, so the last couple of days have been a bit rough. My mother was in a car accident. She's okay, in a lot of pain with a few cracked ribs but her car is a write off. She is 77 and the strongest women in the world. When she was diagnosed wi... Read more

Monday, December 28, 2009      2 comments

I was not prepared for all the feelings I had been stuffing down with food. It's amazing how the brain works, or rather my ego, to keep me "safe". I feel like I'm on the edge of a cliff with safety and security behind me if I don't jump and th... Read more

I lost my full time job in July. I was laid off. I am on unemployment insurance and am frankly afraid to get a job because it will probably be another job that is not my work purpose which will make me more miserable. I am alone in a new city... Read more

I realized this morning when I got up and looked out my kitchen window that I go dormant. It hit me as I was looking at the bare trees and grey sky that my life has been a series of hibernation periods waiting for the sun to reappear again, met... Read more
200 wrongs don't make a right!
Tuesday, December 22, 2009      0 comments

I say 200 because that's at least the amount of binge eating days I've had in the past year. I write this with a few tears. I was given a gift of free personal training and nutritional guidance last year around this time through a documen... Read more
