I started a post and it disappeared. So in brief. I lost, I gained it back. I started to really question why I struggle so much with eating. I learned it is stress and self-criticism that eats at me so then I eat. All this is self-imposed. ... Read more

Yesterday was a really good day. The scale was down and I tried on some pants that had been too small and they fit. I am now comfortably wearing a size 6 petite. I can actually feel that I have lost. Two years ago I went down to 145 and I wa... Read more

I am now down to 149 and it is always nice to leave the 150s. I have been feeling better about my eating. I have days (like yesterday) when I do very well and days like today where my eating isn't what I want. I would say today I ate "mainten... Read more

Sit at the table to eat. Do not watch TV. Do not read anything. Do not work a puzzle. As much as possible think about enjoying the food. Once I am no longer hungry, I find that I get very bored just eating so I stop. I have a couple of... Read more

It has been quite a while since I was here. SP helped me lose 35 pounds 2 years ago and I was able to reach my then-goal weight of 145. I went on maintenance and it was a new world and I have learned a lot about myself while in maintenance. I... Read more

I am tapping and I am not eating salty and sweet foods and it is wonderful. Today is day 4 or 5--I cannot remember for sure when I started. I was thinking about why I was so reluctant to give up the desire for these foods and I think it is... Read more

The weather here in central Florida is perfect. We went to church early and very much enjoyed the service. This week finished up a 4 week video presentation on "The Blessed Life" by Robert Morris. It is really wonderful. I highly recommend t... Read more
