No More Fast Food

I am giving up fast food for an entire month.  I've been keeping track of the amount of fast food I eat, and, although I hate to admit it, I eat four fast food meals, two dinners and two lunches, a week.  The amount of fat I'm ingesting each week is pretty gross, really. So, starting March first, I will no longer be eating any fast food....more

A note from Fatty

So this is Fatty. No letter today because I have been thinking things through. I have found a peace in writing to myself and in reading the comments from all of you. BlogHer is one of the most welcoming places I have found online. Full of support and wisdom. I'm not ashamed of Fatty. But now I want to "come out" as me. ...more

I am...Enough

<!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -->I would LOVE to write a post that has 5 easy steps, or 3 simple ways to evaluate your belief system. From where I sit today, that is simply not possible.   Awareness of self and the belief systems we have is a life's work. It takes time, patience, and commitment to change. This awareness is something that we all do, and will continue to practice for our entire life.  ...more

A Year of Daily Exercise

35 days ago I started my blog on daily exercise. It was my New Year's resolution that was started a bit late :). After 35 days I have stronger muscles, a smaller waist, and a brand new outlook on what it takes to make and keep a comittment to myself! I always thought that people who exercised every day were fitness fanatics. Now I realize that daily fitness isn't as challenging as I once thought, and also that making myself a priority doesn't make me a fanatic. I am excited to continue my journey for the rest of the year, and for the rest of my life! ...more

What Matters Is The Person In Front Of The Mirror, Not The Reflection.

FOREWORD...Here I am, once again facing the mirror, with a shocked expression that shows disbelief beyond what any words could say."I'm fat?"Well, if you're one of my friends or family, or anyone who has seen my physique, you would ask what drug I was on... but there really is no name for the drug. No name, that is, other than body dysmorphia. ...more

Seven Tips to Avoid Overeating Guilt

Do you suffer from overeating guilt? For most of us, food is more than just the nourishment needed for our survival, it's also an emotional roller coaster (with many ups and downs).  One slice of chocolate cake can take us from desire to exhilaration to satisfaction and land us right into guilt.  Which is exactly why they call it a guilty pleasure.  But should we really feel guilty for eating something simply for the pleasure of it?  Of course not.  So why do we? ...more

I totally agree.  Thanks for commenting.
