Today I walked a 5K (in Chicago called "The Shamrock Shuffle" around the lakefront). Last year I barely made it. This year I could tell the difference in my health and walked much quicker. I was actually passing people up! I walked with ... Read more

The past week or so I had been a little depressed. I think the weather was getting to me - the cold, the snow, etc. Maybe I was going through Seasonal Depression. That and the onset of the flu that has infiltrated my family a few times now. ... Read more

I went to my first face-to-face (f2f) OA meeting yesterday, 9/5. It was awesome, and had many attendees. I isolate myself so much that I hadn't attended a f2f meeting in over 8 years. I realized and shared with the group that I never had a st... Read more

Well I put off weighing myself last week because I felt like the scale was going to show numbers higher than the week before. I had a relatively good week, I just felt bulkier. I felt like perhaps I had built muscle from the strength training ... Read more
