I have been enjoying my break for the past week. I am enjoying time with myself and my family as I try to sort through some things, but I definitely wanted to check in with you. Saturday will make seven weeks of no weighing/measuring of food or counting calories, though I do admit to still […]

I’m borrowing this idea from Holly (thanks, girl!) who posted these questions the other day. I thought it might be fun to post. 1) What physical features do you love about yourself? I think I have nice arms and shoulders. I’m lucky that I don’t carry weight there, so from working out, my arms look […]

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 […]

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 […]

So this morning I was working out at the gym and it was time for my 40 minutes on the Precor. After I programmed the machine and tuned my mp3 into Regis and Kelly which was on the TV, I realized that the woman next to me was wearing WAY too much perfume and it […]

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 […]

Pound Count

Bear with me as I amuse myself… I thought it would be interesting to calculate roughly how many pounds I have gained and lost since I was a sophomore in high school. Between the age of 16 and ulp, I’ll be 42 this month, so that is what, 26 years, I calculated that I have […]

Weighing In and Chocolate Covered Raisins

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 […]
