I think that more important, as I've said before, than being thin is feeling good. I have found that is the most important thing. We get caught up with that image in the mirror and what we think other people are thinking about us that we lose ... Read more

Weight loss has been a lifetime journey for me. I have been on one diet or another since I was 9 years old (I am now 52). If I knew then what I know now...such a cliche expression, but so true. If I had known...be happy with yourself...... Read more

Emotional attachment to food
Sunday, August 09, 2015      2 comments

I was contemplating today that I feel like, at least for now, I have overcome my emotional attachment to food. All my life food has had this place in my life where it was my healer. When I was sad, it made me feel happy. When I was bored, it ... Read more

So, feeling sad today. I went out to give my dog a bath and found that she had passed away. She was an older dog, so it wasn't unexpected, but that doesn't make it any easier. Pets really have a piece of your heart. The sad thing also was th... Read more

When you get on track and you are feeling good, why do we return to old habits? That's what I am wondering today. I feel refreshed, alive, happy... Why does that wear off? Life I guess? Responsibilities? I don't know. If someone finds the ... Read more

I realized a very sad thing about myself today...my son told me he was going out to the park and the first thing I thought about was eating because I would be by myself. Then I thought, that kind of thinking needs to stop. My next thought was ... Read more
