I feel, especially after Friday night with the dinner/dessert buffet, that I really need to get serious again about dealing with this compulsive overeating of mine.

I consider myself lucky that despite all of my food craziness, working out has never been an issue for me. Since I was a kid and all through high school, I was a tomboy, always playing organized sports, and when that ended I would join a gym or just work out on my own, and […]

So yesterday I wrote about how on Saturday I almost blew my over 2 year binge-free abstinence, here. I wasn’t even quite sure why I was so into eating or why I could never get satiated. My stomach was like a bottomless pit. The compulsive eater voices inside my head were really loud instead of […]

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.

I have tears in my eyes as I’m typing this, my screen is all blurry. Today I woke up, even after going out to dinner and dancing with my husband last night, as being someone who hasn’t binged in two years. When I came downstairs this morning, this is what I found in the kitchen. […]

It feels pretty surreal to write this, but in three days, Jan 1, I will be two years binge-free. Two whole years. In addition, I will have maintained my weight loss for just about 15 months. Wow. It’s interesting that while there have been so many struggles and so many victories during this time, and […]
