Warning, there are graphic descriptions of decadent food, so beware!   So I went into the party with the mindset that no foods were forbidden and that it would be ok if I indulged a bit in the desserts.  I tried to allow myself that freedom and not be so restrictive.  I spoke to my […]

Just wanted to give you an update on my daughter and her eating.    She seems to be eating more lately, which I’m very happy about.  It’s very bizarre to go from saying “careful, don’t eat too much or you will get a belly ache” to “go ahead and have some more!!”, a whole mindset […]

I can’t believe it, two days ago I hit the 23-month abstinence mark.  For almost two years I have been binge-free.  I have kept off my weight loss for 14 months.  I am SO happy to be able to make both of those statements.  It has certainly been quite challenging, day-to-day, hour-to-hour, minute-to-minute, but  if I can do it, anybody can.

Warning: there are some graphic food descriptions here, so beware! There is a man at my husband’s office whose wife every year bakes these huge, decadent, multiple- types-of-chocolate-chunk cookies and gives them out to everyone in the office.  The couple also happens to throw a holiday party every year.  When we went to the party a few years ago, I […]
