So I'm a bit of a perfectionist. Many of you who have responded to my blog postings and/or spark page have really helped me with this. My first month on SP was definitely the work of the perfectionist part of my personality (I was a slave to t... Read more
Not proud.
Sunday, April 15, 2007      2 comments

I'm not very proud of myself. I fell off the wagon. I'm sure I gained some of my weight back, but the important thing is that I'm back and I still want to succeed where I have failed so many times in the past. In the past when life causes me ... Read more

I can't believe it! I have stuck with this for three weeks. Well there was the four days that my parents visited, but I got back into the groove. That is a first. Walking with friends and tracking my steps and food has been key, but I think ... Read more

My shoulders are almost touching my ears. I can't think straight. I'm having odd dreams. My jaws are sore. I don't remember my last meal (I ate it so fast and so automatically). I'm twitchy. I can't think straight (wait I already sai... Read more

I just posted this on a message board and decided that I wanted to add it as a blog entry. ------ I know how painful this is and I admire that you are working so hard to find a solution. I have a very similar situation in my family. ... Read more

Today was challenging. I was very hungry all day despite eating the same amounts and foods. The only thing that I think was significantly different was: my frozen lunch meal did not have any chicken (not much quality protein), I did not eat a... Read more
