I've been struggling with depression due to having a chronic illness and with a small medication change and help from my psychologist, I've had a big turnaround in how I am feeling and I've even lost a couple of pounds! After complaining to... Read more

I'm trying to eat better. Actually, I am thinking about adopting an anti-inflammatory diet, which is mainly just a good diet with emphasis on foods that fight inflammation and avoiding foods that can promote inflammation in the body. I'm just st... Read more
Not a Very Productive Day
Thursday, May 29, 2014      3 comments

I guess I should be happy for what I did get done today, but it was far less than what I wanted to get done. My house-helper is on vacation and I wanted to see if I could keep up with the house without his help. Doesn't look like it. The kitchen... Read more

I did my first pilates workout! Okay, so it was extreeeeemly modified and, well, I barely moved around and I was, um, in bed, but still, I did it! It was a workout for me. I would love to one day have a slim body like the girls on the video and ... Read more

Monday, Day 4/365
Monday, May 19, 2014      3 comments

I didn't get my Wii set up as I had planned over the weekend, but it doesn't take much to get that going. Weighed in today matching my all time high weight of 269 pounds. I have been successful at cutting out Mt Dew for 5 days now. Yipee! Funny,... Read more
Daily Blogs: Day 1 Friday
Friday, May 16, 2014      5 comments

Am thinking of writing a blog here daily about how I did during the day. I suppose it will be nauseatingly boring to anyone reading it, but it will help keep my goals in mind knowing I will have to write about what I have accomplished during the... Read more
A Change in Self-Talk
Monday, April 21, 2014      6 comments

I realized the other day that my self-talk is very negative when it comes to my body and weight. I generally say, "I'm so fat" or "I have to lose weight" or "I hate being this fat" or "I look terrible" and the like. All very negative things that... Read more
Emerging from a Black Hole
Monday, April 14, 2014      7 comments

I feel like I am trying to break free from an enormous black hole that I have been living in for the past 8 or so years. I'm half way out of it, but I'm still stuck in its gravitational pull from my waist down. I have been sick, very sick and I ... Read more

New Schedule, Dew in Decline
Wednesday, April 02, 2014      3 comments

Well, last week I had several days where I was ready to take the dog for a walk and hubby suggested I not go out. It was so terribly windy. The wind takes my breath away and makes it very difficult to breathe. I heeded his warning. I am sta... Read more
Undoing the Dew
Friday, March 14, 2014      5 comments

Time to stop doing the Dew habit. I have been drinking one to two 12 oz cans of Mt Dew daily and that has to stop. Not just for my weight, but for my teeth. I looked up images of "Mt Dew Mouth" on Google and it isn't pretty. I do not want that f... Read more
Had to Take My Own Advice
Tuesday, March 04, 2014      8 comments

I got involved in an inspirational exchange chain email and the inspirational quote I gave was my favorite one of Maya Angelou's where she says something along the lines of: when you know better, you do better. I said I try not to beat up on mys... Read more

Thursday, February 06, 2014      4 comments

I continue to struggle with lethargy and feelings of anxiety and depression. I decided I needed some self-acceptance and I stumbled onto the concept of Self-Compassion. I've been listening to some FREE videos on self-acceptance through Sounds Tr... Read more
Still Struggling With Depressed Mood & Anxiety
Friday, January 17, 2014      5 comments

I really dislike feeling this way. I think it all stems from my illness and not being able to do the things I would like to be able to do. I go through these troughs where I struggle to do anything. All I want to do is nothing! Feel anxious abou... Read more
