So I hurt myself running, or maybe doing a spin class, a long while ago. It's when working out started to truly *hurt* and I started my slide back into weight gain. I did go to physical therapy for a while and it helped, but by that time I'd got... Read more
A lowering realization

I just finished lunch, which is my hardest time. for some reason when I eat lunch it triggers me to want to just keep eating and eating and eating. It's darn near pathological. Then I was watching my dog after his breakfast today. We always ha... Read more
One day without binging
Thursday, December 21, 2017      14 comments

Tomorrow I will have all the chocolate chips and eat ten times in the day, but today I will not binge. Ok, maybe that sounds weird and counter-intuitive, but I need a win. As flattered as I was by all the comments on my last post (and more tha... Read more

I confessed today to my husband the troubles I've been having and that I've been gaining weight lately. I had to make another promise to him. Back when I started this a couple years ago I had to promise him that I would not have Bissinger's ch... Read more

I haven't really been on track for a year, but I was holding on barely until the past couple of weeks. Today and yesterday were so bad - 4,000 calorie days - that I knew I had to start over. Yes, again. I am admitting to my addiction. I am no ... Read more

Last year was tough. I got off track with food and excercise, though I haven't gained too much, thank goodness. This one is going to be rough, too, but also good. We're going to get sheep this year. I'm going to lose the last 50 pounds. I a... Read more

Off the freaking rails
Wednesday, December 07, 2016      6 comments

So... I'm still not on track and I don't know how I haven't blown up like a blimp. My eating has been unreasonable. I do have to remember that my "this is insane" eating now is still less than a typical pre-Spark day's eating, but still. This is... Read more

Another loss on the books. 192.8, about a pound down from last week. I'm still struggling with food and getting in my exercise, but I don't think that's going away anytime soon. I reached out to the company that makes my treadmill. They sent s... Read more

I have been doing this for a year and a half. I've lost 115 lbs. I love running and have done multiple 5Ks. I have my own workout room in the basement. Yet every. single. time. I have to force myself to work out. I know the thrill of endorphi... Read more
Old coping mechanisms (warning political talk)

I can't believe it took me this long to figure out. I've been eating like there's no tomorrow lately. I didn't know why I've been self-sabotaging like this and I've been getting so frustrated and upset with myself. It finally occurred to me WH... Read more
Do you remember?

Do you remember, oh, about 100 pounds ago when I said I had a dream outfit in mind for when I lost the weight? Well, thanks to wide-calf boots (which I... Read more
