This post is on WATRD, but I’m running it as a cross-post here as well. I am reading this great book by Valerie Frankel called “Thin is the New Happy” and in it she gives a very interesting statistic about parents and daughters. (The book is about the author’s life; how growing up she was […]

So last night went well. I expected a full table of decadent treats at the condolence call but there was much less food than I expected. So that was a good thing – less choices. I felt very calm and relaxed. I was choice-ful prior to going and decided that I would taste/eat things that […]

So the class trip ended up being postponed due to the snow storm. 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 […]

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 was in an emotional whirlwind of emotions Valentine’s Day morning. I had asked my husband to buy just a couple of one of my favorite things – dark chocolate covered oreos. I strongly urged to please just get a few, so that I could have a treat, but not be tempted by them if […]

What the heck is wrong with me? Hello! I’ve been a compulsive eater for over 30 years for goodness sake, why am I having so much trouble with eating extra food treats to make up for all the calories I didn’t eat while I was sick for a week? I have a free pass, that […]

Warning! If you have just eaten or are squeamish about fish poop, you may not want to read this! 🙂 So yesterday afternoon I was sitting perched on the small flight of steps that lead from our kitchen into our den. We have our fish tank right at the bottom of the steps. I was […]

Caught Between a Rock and Hard Place

So my appetite is mostly back after the stomach virus, that’s the good news. The not so good news is that while trying to learn from this tuning-in-to-my-body experience of the virus and trying to listen to my body’s hunger and satiation cues, I’m finding that I’m not eating as much as I usually do.
