Very tired today. I still managed to go for a walk this morning but can't wait until I can crawl into bed. I have heard that when cutting out flour and sugar it isn't uncommon to feel bad at first as your body adjusts. I have been doing g... Read more

I made my decision last week to join FA. The program is stricter than OA but I liked the group more and, since I am going to be relying on them for support, this meant a lot to me. Also, looking at the people who attend the meetings and have b... Read more

This past week has been enlightening yet very scary for me. I have been dealing with a lot of issues (mostly small) over the past few month which certainly haven't helped my weight situation (the biggest issue). Maybe dealing isn't the r... Read more

Ok, so I am not great at this blogging thing. I love reading others but don't usually feel I have enough to say. However, today I need to come clean in hopes that I can start over, again. I have TOTALLY fallen off the wagon. I gained bac... Read more

Twice This Week

It is just a few days shy of 3 months since my MG flared up and I had to go on steroids to get it back under control. The thought of gaining more weight, in addition to the extra 30 lbs I was already carrying, really made me heed my doctors war... Read more

I haven't posted anything in quite a while, mainly because I have been on track and feeling better about myself. This post isn't because that has changed but more the reason why, despite this being a bad week, I am committed to get back in the ... Read more

We spent 3 days getting ready to go away for 3 nights. It was well worth it as we had a terrific time in St. Augustine. Can I say I was perfect with my diet, no. But, considering we were on vacation I am very pleased with my choices. Most of... Read more

I was hoping by some miracle my scale would know it was my birthday today and be pre-programed to show at least a small dip. No such luck as the scale hasn't moved over the past week+. Yes, it is frustrating since I keep looking for signs in m... Read more

I am quickly approaching the big 40! Age has never been an issue for me and I am not traumatized by the idea of turning 40. What I am bothered by is that I will be turning 40 and am still dealing with weight issues. Reflecting back on t... Read more
