You Only Live Once

We only get one life to live.  The one that is right here with us—today.   The reality of that hit me loud and clear when my friend, Christina, died from cancer a little over a year ago.  I met her originally through her Vlogs on YouTube where she spoke often on her struggle with […]

I cannot tell you exactly WHY I am the way I am.  I just know that after almost 44 years on this earth and a lifetime experimenting with every single diet or food plan that has probably ever existed (including some of my own creation) I have learned quite a lot about myself. #1—I have […]

There is No Pause Button

For quite awhile I have felt as if I just hit “pause” on the weight loss part of my life— with plans to return someday. But when it hit me how much time had passed since I hit that pause button I began to wonder…will someday ever come? I’ve spent the last week or so swinging from one […]

What is The Truth?

February 3, 2016
honest

There are people who walk outside and notice it’s raining so they put up their umbrella.  But aside from that they just don’t care.  They aren’t influenced by it one way or the other.  If they were going to the store then they are still going to the store.  Regardless of how many raindrops fall.

The Lies I Tell

February 2, 2016
reality check

I’ve become increasingly tired of myself lately.  Like really sick and tired of myself.  And that’s no good place to be.  Every morning and every night I have to go to bed to ME.  I have to live all day with ME.  And sometimes that can be super annoying.  Especially when part of me is […]

The Official Update and A Look Back At The Trainwreck!

January 27, 2016
brave

I realized the other day that I started this blog in March 2011 and it is now almost March 2016.  That means I’ve literally been trying to lose 300 pounds for the last 5 years. And that feels absurd. I mean what are you willing to spend 5 years doing unsuccesfully?? I could have earned […]

Running From The Test

January 20, 2016
brave

I was a binge eater and that was my escape   That was how I dealt with my feelings   Not with grazing   Not with one cookie or one donut   But with MASS shoveling of food   With a major piling on of something that could quiet whatever it was that I was […]

Trade your SHOULDS for SHALLS

  Should…Should…Should!! Don’t you hate SHOULD? You should have done this You should have done that Is there a more judgemental and depressing word out there than SHOULD?   It doesn’t matter what tense you use it in….it always feels very negative “I should go to the gym” “I should have gone to the gym” “I […]

Stop Violating the Terms of Your “Probation”

January 4, 2016
???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Probation is defined as: “A sentence whereby a convict is released from confinement But is still under court supervision. A testing or a trial period.” The word “probation” is actually derived from probatum which is Latin for “The act of proving” If you are released from prison on probation, then you are free within limits.   But you have to prove that you can follow the rules. The same can be […]
