Thursday, May 02, 2019      6 comments

Which has to be better than thinking about it and not being serious, right? I have to get back on track. My clothes don't fit. I'm at my heaviest weight ever, don't even ask. I am miserable. And in the back of my mind I know that I just have to ... Read more

I have struggled with my weight since I can remember. I thought I was fat my entire life and now I truly have allowed myself to let my weight get out of control. Almost seven years ago I lost 92 pounds over nine months. I was walking in 5k races... Read more

I can honestly say that when I was my healthiest, I was also as mindful of every moment as I have ever been. I was living in the moment and taking advantage of the time around me. That is not so much true right now. Yesterday I had a complete me... Read more

Hi everyone! It has been almost a month since my last post. Does that sound like the start of a confession, cuz I'm not Catholic, but that does sound a little familiar from tv shows. I am making steady progress in my goals but not without s... Read more

I am happy to report that I'm making some steps forward, not a ton, but some. I recognize that my thinking is totally off base sometimes, and last week when I was really struggling I started to text a good friend who kept me accountable over the... Read more

Happy Monday everyone. I started this blog over the weekend, but just could not make myself write out what I'm thinking. Why is it so much easier to believe what I say to myself than to say it out loud? I know what I am thinking is mean and unre... Read more

The last couple weeks have been so stressful. Between work projects and trouble with two staff members, who are both more than 20 years older than me, and being unhappy in my life I am exhausted. My parents are here for a long visit and I love t... Read more

Where to start? The last week was really stressful, about 70 hours of work and stressful. I let my walking go and messed up with my food. The short story is that I started to do good about six or seven weeks ago. Pretty much gave up gluten and a... Read more

First, if you are following my blog, a warning for you. I have always thought that I needed to blog a long thing if I was going to put anything down in writing. You know, be all thorough and deep, but that is really not what I need right now. Ri... Read more

I have been carrying around these thoughts for days and I need to get them out into the world so I can try to let them go. As a warning, these are not happy nice thoughts. I cannot seem to do anything right. I cannot nourish my body correct... Read more

This is a long one. Or until I get tired of typing, whichever happens first. So, I started 2016 doing alright. Not great, but keeping things balanced. Then I started looking for a new job and things got a little crazy. But then things kind ... Read more
Where has January gone?

I have avoided writing a blog because I was sick of always writing how sad or depressed or overwhelmed I was feeling. That has not changed. I do appreciate everyone's advice about seeing a counselor, getting meds figured out, etc. The difficult ... Read more
