The Eating- After Syndrome
Saturday, May 07, 2011      4 comments

I have to say this is a syndrome, if not a pattern of behavior. I was so busy, busy, busy last week that I went from dawn to dusk, literally, with activity on my mind and in my person. I went by car, with my portable manual wheelchair on board, ... Read more
2 pounds down, 2 weeks in a row
Wednesday, May 04, 2011      11 comments

I'm so surprised and totally thrilled that I've had a two pound weight loss two weeks in a row. Last month when I was "eating badly" I put back the seven pounds I had lost the month before. Now I have just a few pounds to go to get past that re... Read more

The cravings have passed

Last night I didn't go back out to the kitchen for a pint of Bryers' "Overload." I could feel the difference making the decision not to go for it from when I was almost manic in my carb binging over a week ago. At that time I no longer had the p... Read more
Hard work paying off
Sunday, April 24, 2011      4 comments

With all the inner work I've been doing lately to track down and understand the feelings that lay behind my overeating, I was beginning to see everything as a challenge or a lesson to be learned. I really HAVE learned a lot, and there is yet mo... Read more
Changing the game plan
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      4 comments

When I attended my weight watchers meeting today I shared some of what I've been sharing here on the Spark pages. It was much more difficult to say there what I've found it so easy to say here, but everyone was supportive and tried to give sugg... Read more

I'm getting so much out of my current journalling efforts. If something happens I try to find the feelings that I'm experiencing. More often than not, I haven't got a clue!! So I journal my perception of what I think is happening, and before yo... Read more
Journal
Wednesday, April 13, 2011      6 comments

I love to write. I've been blogging and that helps, but there's lots of stuff that comes up for me that I choose not to publish and so I haven't been "getting it all out" the way I need to in order to keep myself free of the emotions that I eat ... Read more
Express yourself
Monday, April 11, 2011      6 comments

I have a close friend who is 82 years old and quite "chipper." Lately she has been quite outspoken and says, "I'm 82 and I've earned the right to speak my mind!" She's so right. I'm not even close to 82 but I've begun to adopt the same philosoph... Read more

This is my third attempt to blog this report on the success of my new challenge. Twice I hit a key by mistake on the computer and the blog went off into cyberspace. I wanted to let everyone know how much I appreciate all the helpful suggestions ... Read more
Learning to ride out the storm
Saturday, April 09, 2011      9 comments

I never thought I'd say this, but I think the time has come to challenge myself to a new goal which will read, no eating after 8 pm. This night eating is making me ill. Last night I had to chew Tums several times and drink water afterwards to ge... Read more
Questions along the way
Friday, April 08, 2011      6 comments

Sometimes I have more questions than answers. So on behalf of all my fellow food addicts I want to know: 1. Why does a food that sits unobtrusively in the back of your food pantry without raising an alarm or even hinting that it's still there... Read more
Crisis without a snack
Thursday, March 31, 2011      6 comments

It helps if I stop and blog in the middle of a dilemna. For me it's like BREATHINGGGGGGGGGGG! I am sorting/working through my crisis moment instead of eating. My new dishwasher was just delivered but couldn't be installed because the person wh... Read more
You can run but you can't hide
Tuesday, March 29, 2011      8 comments

Sometimes, as "they" say, it's not what you're eating, it's what's eating you (that may have been genene roth in one of her books). but I've heard it so many times, and just one more time I was trying to sweep what was eating me under the rug. ... Read more

I had the most pleasant surprise when my daughter, grandson and I dined at the Olive Garden for lunch today. We went there after church, and I was already blessed to have the two of them join me at church, but the blessings didn't end there. I... Read more
