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! (Sixteen laps is the eqiuvalent of 1/4 mile, which is the distance of the swim portion of the triathlon.) When I started training […]

I’m still struggling a bit with a certain aspect of my hunger cues. I guess all the bingeing I’ve done all these years has my system thrown off a bit. Like most people, I’m assuming, I feel hungry when I wake up in the morning. The problem is that I feel different types of hunger […]

So I went on vacation and have been home now for a few days. Since March 26, I have not looked up one item in a calorie book or looked up one thing on a calorie counting website. This, my friends, is a MIRACLE. I can’t remember a time since I was a teenager that […]

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 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.

So I got on the scale on Friday as planned and as I sort of feared, I have lost 2.5 lbs in the last month. (Part of it is from the stomach virus I had and I think the other part is that, shockingly, following my hunger cues has me eating less. Who would’ve thunk […]

So I went to see my therapist a couple of days ago and as always, the appointment was great. I see him once a month, a far cry from when I had to do a brain dump on him every week. Now it’s just for me to touch base on certain issues or questions I […]

Ugh! Last night I felt so gross and bloated. I felt like how I used to back in my binging days. I felt like I ate everything in my house that wasn’t nailed down. I was overstuffed, bloated, very uncomfortable in my skin and just blah. I remember this horrible feeling oh so well. It […]
