While I’m away on vacation, I thought I would run some of my very first posts which would be great for me to see where I came from, and hopefully interesting for you to read as well. I’m not quite sure where to begin. I didn’t know I was a compulsive overeater until close to […]

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m feeling really good for some reason. Good enough that I’m truly dabbling with the idea of not using my food scale and measuring cups for weighing and measuring, as well as not writing down my calories every day. I would be eating intuitively. This idea scared the crap […]

Over the weekend, I did something that I had been hoping to put off for another few years – my husband and I told our 10-year old daughter about my eating disorder, that I was a compulsive (over)eater. My sincere thanks go out to MamaV for unknowingly giving me the kick in the pants I […]

Wow, I can’t believe that these words are about to come out of my mouth, so to speak, but I recently had kind of an “ah-ha” moment — I realized that food is a little bit less important to me right now. Not a whole lot less, maybe only 10% or so, but a little […]
