Had a very good today--got a little bit nuts this afternoon around 3--always the hardest part of the day for me. My brain and my body were telling me I wanted/needed/wanted/needed food. But, I ignored myself and had some tea and an orange. That... Read more

For the last week or so, I've found it very hard to concentrate on much of anything. At work, I'm distracted and can't seem to finish things as efficiently as I normally do. Food and exercise have been fine. I don't know what's wrong with me. M... Read more

I'm pretty sure it is safe to say that I've never been really, truly hungry. Growing up, we were poor, but I don't remember ever being without food. My world today is a world filled with food. I don't just mean the food in my house. I mean... Read more
