Life on life's terms
Saturday, October 08, 2011      22 comments

I will admit that I'm usually a glass half empty kind of person. Most of this stems from the fact that I have, probably all my life, suffered from mild depression. I've spent plenty of time in therapy chairs and that is the consensus, that it is... Read more
My kitty is sick...

My son thinks my kitty is sick. Maybe dying. I hate being away from home right now but know it's almost over and I am hoping she will hang on until I get there. It's been a horrible September for us and I'm anxious for it to be over. But today I... Read more
Just an Update for September

I can't believe it's already September, and then almost over! I feel like I've lost this entire month! This is probably boring and long, but I felt I needed to update why I'm not here much this month. 1. Tuckers funeral (my brother in ... Read more

My Sapphire Sisters are doing this exercise with me and it's been wonderful reading some of their discoveries and learning how some of them are going about this activity. We are all so different and we respond to different things. Turns out my i... Read more
One step at a time

I always loved the idea of one day at a time. You can do something for one day that seems impossible if all the days of your life stretch out ahead of you. I have sort of fallen away from that a little, and need to get back there. Having been di... Read more
Balancing act
Sunday, August 21, 2011      14 comments

I am not very good at balance. When I first got here I had spent many years never putting myself first, or even second. In a busy family of 5 I was usually in 5th place when it came to giving myself any attention. When I came to SP my boys... Read more

Ten weeks ago as part of my Summer Challenge I was to write myself a letter to read at the end of it. I had forgotten about this, actually. Ten weeks is a long time when life is batting you around. It hasn't been a good summer. Work, which ... Read more

First, I'm headed to get DS home for a couple weeks so can't respond to everyone individually but thank you all. No, Susie was not her real name and yes I was being dramatic about her reason but it was equally stupid. Don't care, she can st... Read more

I didn't have a great food day yesterday. I'll recover, but I was certainly trying to eat down some of my feelings. I recognized it a little after the fact but enough to recover for the evening, and I focused on a very small portion of grilled c... Read more
"Because of my size"
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      38 comments

When we were looking through old photographs that one phrase kept repeating in my head. Why didn't I go on the rides when we took the boys to the amusement park? "Because of my size" Why didn't I go in the ocean with everyone, or into th... Read more

I haven't had much to blog about since my last one. We are still reeling from my brother in laws sudden death and because the process has been so slow, everything about the day is interrupted by dealing with medical examiners and the FBI. (Who r... Read more
Will still be gone awhile longer

I had to wait to post this because not everyone in the family had been contacted and we all agreed to keep anything official off the internet. I do want to say that I truly appreciate the comments and goodies and emails from my team mates, who a... Read more
Why progress counts

Having any kind of eating disorder means a lot of what you do is in secret. I know for myself, I was an expert at covert eating. A few hasty bites here and there, candy bars in the car on the way home. I was a sneaky eater even as a kid and it s... Read more
Zen and the art of dieting
Sunday, June 19, 2011      23 comments

I've mentioned to a few of my closest sparkfriends lately that with all the challenges of life...I am feeling very "zen" at the moment. That is a good thing. I've said before that while I have always been fat (and I am not exaggerating) I w... Read more
