By all rights, today should have been a horrible, mopey day. I had another very rough night of very little sleep - even in spite of Rx sleeping pills. My brain would not turn off, my stomach was in knots, and the dog insisted on hogging the bed.... Read more

So far, so good! Kinda. I've met my step goal every day so far...but neglected to blog a day. I'm going to have to set a reminder on my phone. I actually forgot to do it, because blogging/being social on Spark isn't a habit. Yet. Although... Read more

I need to get back in a successful mindset. I had it for a while, then I went overboard, then I slacked off. The holidays were depressing, I am more anxious than I think I've ever been and I sort of started wallowing. So I need to change things... Read more

My hair is falling out. Like a lot. Big clumps. Of course I notice when I wash my hair that I've got a lot of fallout, but somehow, I thought my hair was breaking because it's winter and I've been wearing hats...or something. This pa... Read more

And just like that, the holiday season is upon us. For the first time in a very long time, I’m going to handle this season differently. I’m going to stay present, practice gratitude and be kind to myself. I’m choosing to be grateful for wh... Read more

I really, really need someone to tell me that if I have days in which I eat close to the upper level of my range, I'm still "doing it right" and I'm still moving in the right direction. And if I have days where I exceed my range at eat too... Read more
