So I mentioned a week or two ago that I finally pulled my head out of the sand, took off my rose-colored glasses, and told my 10-year old daughter that I had an eating disorder. Here is the letter I wrote and read to her, to get the conversation going… MamaV just posted it on […]

I worried for nothing, but then, now I’m totally prepared for when the trip is rescheduled, so thanks everybody for your great suggestions! Other stuff…. On Thursday night I was sitting at my local pharmacy after a trip to the gynecologist. Without […]

So on Friday my 4th grader’s class is going on class trip to our local aquarium. I volunteered to chaperone and was chosen to go. The parents get to ride on the bus. We leave the school at around 9:00 am and get back at around 2:00 pm. It’s always fun to go to the […]

A friend of mine sent this to me yesterday. I thought it was really interesting to see a famous man admitting this on national television and in a book. Personally, I didn’t recognize the name Jeff Garlin, but I certainly recognized him from the movies. I admire him for coming forward, I’m sure it wasn’t […]

I had “one of those days” yesterday. Even after being binge-free for over two years and feeling really good lately – making some big strides with not getting on the scale for a full month, listening to my hunger cues and my general awareness increasing, I had a rough day yesterday. The compulsive eating ‘voices’ […]

Nothing like learning a lesson the hard way. I bought a 6-pack of “double chocolate sugarfree jello pudding” at the market a week or two ago. I thought the 60 calories of chocolate pudding would be good for those chocolate cravings with little damage in the calorie department. I ate three of them over the […]

I won’t bore you with the boring details (husband out of town, tons of snow, kids home from school, a lot of work on my plate, aunt flo on her way), but suffice to say I had pretty stressful week last week. Food-wise I was fine, everything-else wise, I was a mess. It came to […]
