Not eating until 4pm is a stupid idea

Posted by: billie In: battling self-destruction|blogging helps

Yeah, I know better. I drank a few cups of coffee (15 cal x3) but i just didnt feel like food until now….and i feel a binge coming on. But i came here instead because that’s what i’m supposed to do in this situation.

I just ate a tapioca cup (70 cal) and a mousse cup (60 cal) and now i’ll just type away until its time to put together some dinner which will be in just a few minutes cause me and the old man gotta make a quick run out to the college and return the pedestals i borrowed for my show last week.

I’m thinking i need to change the name of my blog, try to get a few hits. Blog-readers=motivation. I know i always click on the ones with the funny names, hoping to find someone with a sense of humor and a down to earth lay-it-all-out-there attitude. I usually hope they weigh about the same as me and struggle with the same kind of shit i struggle with. If i go to a blog and its all happy happy, corny, my life is filled with butterflies and petunias i never care enough to read thru it. I love a good struggle.

My current blog title: “getting motivated & being accountable” is the sort of title i would probably avoid, i mean its true, that’s what i’m blogging for, but basically a boring title. I need something that says: fat girl struggles with binging, married to a grouchy redneck, can’t get off her ass on most days, avoids all encounters with her mother, but emails her dad 5 times a day and has the cutest dog ever. A bit wordy, i need a way to whittle that down to a nice concise eye-catcher.

I like clicking on the funny blog names too πŸ™‚

Those small pudding cups get SO addictive for me. I remember in the past where I had problems stopping at one so great job having self control! Great job blogging instead of binging!

I just want to let you know you we’re my first comment and it made me smile. So of course I came to check out your blog. Minus the being married, sounds like a title I would have. I text my dad all day and, well, try to avoid mom. (Oh and the dog is my roommates, but close enough). I’m glad you have been re-motivated and back on the site. You can do it!
