Not sick enough yet
Wednesday, September 11, 2013      2 comments

"A lot of health advocates say — and I agree — that most people don’t eat a good diet or try to be healthy simply because they have not been sick enough yet. 'Life is a journey' they say, and much as I wish this were bullsh*t, it’s not. ... Read more
Thyroid
Sunday, June 30, 2013      8 comments

About 2 months ago, I found out I am hypothyroid (under-active thyroid). It is very frustrating, and I've spent these weeks trying to figure out what medication & what doctor I should use. A lot of people including some doctors don't know much a... Read more
Stuck....maybe

Well, I thought I was stuck. Well, I WAS stuck for several months. I was doing really well with Whole30/paleo eating, then in late February/early March, I started feeling sorry for myself and totally sabotaged myself. I couldn't find my... Read more

I had this horrible dream... It was my wedding day, and we were supposed to get married at 11 AM. I rolled out of bed at 10:55 and went to sit in the chapel with my guests. I remember looking around thinking wow, why is everyone here so ea... Read more
Mean things I tell myself

You're so dumb. You're incompetent. You're such a loser. You can't do it. You're such a chunk. You look disgusting. You don't fit in. They don't like you. Nobody likes you. They're all better than you. You're such a mor... Read more

The past month and a half I have been waffling back and forth from plan to plan, trying to figure out how I am going to lose weight for this wedding. I started with Atkins, but quickly had to abandon it after I couldn't stop "cheating" and... Read more

Today I make the decision not to eat the bowl of pasta in front of me. Even though it's just sitting there. Even though I already heated it up. Even though I already went over my calorie limit by having a piece of Italian bread. Even... Read more
Now that I've been slacking off...
Thursday, October 21, 2010      4 comments

for more than a month...it occurs to me that I should probably start thinking seriously about reaching my next goal weight. I logged in today and saw my ticker and thought, "Oh yeah, I'm supposed to be getting down to 234." I forgot. Been s... Read more
Hmmmm

The past few days I have derailed! Ok, that's not really true. I've had extra carbs every day. One day, propelled by a horrible day at work, I sat down to eat and just had what my family had made, which was a frittata, hashbrowns, and glazed cro... Read more
