I can tell that my last 2 weeks of more than average stress (mom in hospital + hallucinating/Shelby's appt in Oakland/Steve's hs reunion/feeling fat and ugh... & everything else) has caught up to me. I'm HUNGRY, I have a headache, I have a tumm... Read more

Today was a great eating day. I purposely ate very carefully to try to "correct" yesterday's Safeway signature sandwich consumption. I get so frustrated when I can't find calorie counts/fat content of things I eat. I'm sure it wasn't as astro... Read more

Why is it that I obsess over one thing I've eaten? I had been doing really well w/that for the past week then here I go, eat a sandwich I bought at Safeway, and berate myself for the rest of the day. I ordered it, once I got to the van, I thou... Read more

and so grateful that I'd vowed accountability, joined a 30 day binge free challenge and am HFCS-free because my mom's not doing well in the hospital. I've established a really great pattern of what I'm eating/how often I'm eating/walking w/my d... Read more

Mom's still in the hospital and is still not completely coherent yet. She's not able to carry on a full logical conversation even though the nurse took off the pain patch yesterday afternoon. I talked to her oncologist on the phone tonight and... Read more

Today was going to be a great day - to start it off, a girlfriend was going to take pictures of my kids, me, my mom and my grandma at a nearby park. While my kids and I were getting ready, I rec'd a phone call from my mom saying she had to go t... Read more

It pours. Shelby woke up early to announce she wasn't feeling well. I brought her to my bed and she soon began throwing up. This was quite the challenge due to how floppy she is from her CP, trying to sit her up, lean over the bowl that I'm ... Read more
