Tuesday, April 02, 2019      4 comments

OK, here we go again. 412 this morning and there's no mystery. Stress-eating, not logging my food, and making choices that feed the food addict that lives inside me. What I know to be facts: >Eating simple carbs leads to eating sim... Read more

I started going to online OA meetings 3 weeks ago. I have a sponsor now and have started to do "the work". Obviously, this entails digging into your emotions. OK, I can do that. I've been doing that for decades, in therapy. Thing is... Read more

This morning started out really great. I weighed in at 397 and I have no idea how long it's been since I've seen that. The lowest I've been in at least 6 years, possibly 7 or more. YAY ME! Shortly after, due to some major incom... Read more

The expression "It works if you work it" has been used so often that sometimes we don't even "hear" it. The thing is, no matter what our plan is: eating, exercise, relaxation and coping techniques, etc., it won't work unless we actually DO... Read more

I'm so grateful for time moving forward. Things got progressively worse yesterday, including a trip to the emergency vet for one of my cats. He had emergency surgery a little over a week ago, and started acting oddly last night, so off h... Read more

All-time high. Life has been chaos for over 30 days now. My eating reflects that. Yesterday I reached out for help and today it blew up in my face. I asked my therapist to contact my GP to see if there are any resources here ... Read more
