danzigurl- i feel for you. maybe you should take some break from everything, like relaxing day in spa or something with your hubby so you can completely forget about food and exercise ...i think we are all overwhelmed with informations, worrying about every calorie every bite, hours of exercise and figuring how to burn excess calories...it's not normal anymore.
i've been thinking a lot about that and i feel we are missing so much in life, at least i am. i could be doing millions of others things instead of worrying how to loose these damned 20 pounds and avoiding so many events, even moving away just because i feel like a failure for gaining back half of the weight i lost with so much devotion and effort. it has to stop.
i have suffered a great deal for the last two months, but i pushed myself and reached my goals even though i binged all that time to soothe my nerves because i didn't want to bother anyone with my problems. i have finally moved into a new appartment, clean and ok roommates and i got a scolarship and i even stated missing my crazy family. i speak with my mom on a regular basis and can't wait to go home for christmas. life is beautiful now and it all happened in a course of a few days. i told myself that once i reach those goals i will stop binging and start trying to focus on healthy eating instead of eating a bag of cookies for lunch and dinner. the time has finally come. last month i gained about 5-7 pounds and i hope it's mostly water.
tubolard- i wish to have soem of your will power this month
you're doing great
november hit us all pretty hard, well at least most of us. i hope december will be kinder to us.
