While away, relaxing and unplugged on vacation, I gave a lot of thought to this blog. Next month will be my one year anniversary. What an amazing year it has been. The first half of the blog year was filled with my daily struggles with my compulsive overeating. The second half of the blog year, […]

My triathlon training continues to be moving along nicely. In fact, this morning, I am proud to report that, for the first time, I swam 16 laps in the pool without stopping!

So I blathered on the other day about how on Saturday 3/27 I tried my first day at intuitive eating. It just so happened that was the same day as my nephew’s 3rd birthday party. Typically, going to my sister-in-laws house for any event fills me with anxiety. For some reason, I was still holding […]

As most of you know, I have been dabbling a bit with Intuitive Eating. I have found some parts of it that work rather well for me in my recovery from compulsive overeating. Listening to my hunger and satiety cues, instead of just eating on a timed schedule has been a big change in my […]

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.

WARNING: this blog will explicitly mention some serious binge foods, so beware! So I went out to dinner with my husband and kids last night and had an abstinent dinner.  We decided to go to Dairy Queen for dessert for my son and me.  I got my usual fat-free fudge bar – 50 calories, hits the […]
