I Matter.
Tuesday, December 12, 2017      8 comments

All my life I've taken care of other people, my family, some friends. Even in the work I did was centred around taking care of others. I put everyone first, ahead of me - their needs more important than mine. Today I am standing up and ow... Read more
Change
Friday, December 01, 2017      3 comments

I never liked change, even when something is not great at least for me it was familiar and that familiar was comfortable. But now, the familiar isn't comfortable anymore. The familiar keeps me isolated, and unhealthy. Today I aim for chang... Read more
So Far
Sunday, November 19, 2017      7 comments

It's been a week and so far so good. I've lost 2 1/2 pounds and I'm eating much healthier. I want this to last but the thought does cross my mind if I'll fall back into old habits. It's only been a week, not very long. Can I keep it up. Ca... Read more
Good Morning
Wednesday, November 15, 2017      2 comments

Good morning! And it is a good morning. Good because for the past three days I've been mostly on track. Yesterday I was tired and a bit stressed and wanted to eat. I did but only the good stuff, healthy food. For me that's a huge accomplishment.... Read more
Support
Sunday, November 12, 2017      6 comments

I can't do this alone. I've tried. Didn't work out. Now I'm here getting the support and reminders I need. No more telling myself lies that that one bite or two or three doesn't count. It all counts. This site is amazing. The support and encoura... Read more
Bottom Line
Wednesday, November 08, 2017      7 comments

Okay I've been offline for a couple of weeks and found I need to be here. I need to blog everyday. I need to remind myself I have a problem. Bottom line - I need SparkPeople. So I'm back. And making a commitment to say something, anything ... Read more
Training
Wednesday, September 20, 2017      5 comments

Training for something is never easy. Whether it's in university training to become a professional or in some sport training to be the best. It's the same with training my body to cooperate with me, to stop mindlessly eating in the evenings, to ... Read more
Goal
Monday, September 11, 2017      6 comments

Today is a new day. My motivation is set. I will, I can, I am doing this. I've set a goal around eating in the evenings - no eating after 8 two times this week. I'll do it today, and Wed. From that I'll build in more days but I'm sure I can mana... Read more
Evenings
Saturday, September 09, 2017      5 comments

I've been struggling these last two days with eating in the evenings. Nothing horrendous but still eating when I really am not hungry. What is this pull that food has over me. It's a terrible ingrain habit to use food to comfort, calm, relax. ... Read more
Eating Out
Saturday, September 02, 2017      9 comments

Eating out can't be avoided at times but eating out trips me every time. We went out to eat at a Chinese buffet yesterday and although I didn't eat that much, I couldn't calculate calories at all so felt as if I blew it. That feeling led to ove... Read more
Staying Aware
Friday, September 01, 2017      6 comments

It seems to me these last few days, if I write about the struggle I have with overeating and weight, I'm geared up to stay on track. As soon as I relax, so does my willpower. I need to write. I need to own it. I need to remember that this is my ... Read more
Being Aware
Sunday, August 27, 2017      5 comments

It's so easy and insidious to live in denial. Who me? I don't have an issue with overeating. Sure I can eat anything I want when I want. Lies!!! The truth is I can't and I need to keep telling myself that over and over and over because I so easi... Read more
My Body
Friday, August 25, 2017      2 comments

Exercise is one area I got down pat. Everyday I work out on the treadmill and most days I hike the hills near our home. Moving my body helps me stay in touch with what it needs. My body has been the battleground for all my struggles and hu... Read more
Choice
Wednesday, August 23, 2017      3 comments

Yesterday went out with family to a fair. I tried to eat right but had some things that definitely I wouldn't have if home and I was in control of the day food plan. Woke up today thinking it's alright. Today I have a choice and the consequences... Read more
Struggle
Saturday, August 19, 2017      3 comments

I had lost some weight and over the summer even though I excercise a lot, I put back four pounds. I've been discouraged over that and trying to tell myself, just get back on track. I will. I do like healthy eating better but it's the evenings th... Read more
