    Back with an update and a brief crash off the wagon this past weekend. But, I'm back rather than letting myself reel for another several weeks. This feeling... I wish I could call it to mind every...

    Powerful words! I'm glad to meet you, too, and walk with you on this journey. It sounds like you have a solid foundation to help you cope and overcome difficulties. I'm sending good thoughts and...

    You have a good attitude, MamaGrok. I'm going to head over and read your journal now, I think.

    Somebody wrote earlier, who had a nice quote appended to her posts. It was something like, "it's not...

    Hey MamaGrok! It's a big struggle, I know. It helps me to just go one day at a time--and try not to think too much in terms of "right" or "wrong." My binging happens for a few reasons, and ugh, that...

    Today's update: Feeling kind of sick. I ran hot and cold all last night, and there's a scratchy feeling in my throat. Now just a feeling of meh. This is as much stress-related as it is physical. On...

    Hi, MamaGrok! What cravings in particular are you struggling with? I've been experimenting with food hacks (putting together foods that evoke the not-exactly-healthy ones I'm craving, whether it's by...

    Just wanted to jot a quick update. It's not because I fell off the wagon that I haven't been posting... It's more that I feel like the changes have taken hold and there's no need to talk about them....

    Ohh, I love that there's a thread dedicated to Zumba! I just started doing it too, and now I'm one of those crazy folks who asks other people if they've tried it. Sure as hell beats running for an...

    Yesterday's farmers market haul: beets with the most beautiful greens, carrots, early tomatoes, zucchini, pickling cukes and potatoes. I've been leaning on potatoes lately as my starch. Previous...

    Had dinner with a potential contributor for the magazine yesterday and managed not to order the whole menu at the restaurant (a frequent problem before, and especially at this place that serves...

    Hi again! And thanks for the congratulations--it feels different this time, but the key will be to ride out those same old feelings that cyclically crop up and send me back to the starting line....

    Now you *know* it's summer when the Russian recipes start rolling out. The latest thing I've made is vinegret, which is a salad consisting of beets, potatoes, sauerkraut and pickles. Tossed a...

    Lost a pound. Ate a little too much during family dinner last night, but went home, stopped eating for the night and immediately started cooking for this upcoming week. I hit two farmers markets late...

    Alright, two days' worth of commentary here:

    Ice cream social turned into a little bit of a free-for-all and ended in late night Mexican food. Then, the following morning, I had breakfast at a...

    I was reading another person's journal on here where s/he talked about stability versus chaos and bouncing between those poles. It made me think about how boring sticking to a routine can be, but how...

    Urja, I wanted to drop in just to voice some solidarity with what you said above about rigid order or chaos. I struggle with this too, and am caught up in a cycle where I make progress and then...

    Thank you so much for the bolstering message, Jen! I think letting go of the past needs to be something I do generally in my life... I have had the same goals for who knows how long. It's almost as...

    Hi folks,

    I'm Jen. Longtime listener, caller a handful of times (have fallen off the wagon more times than I care to admit). I don't even have the bandwidth to write my full story here now and in...

    Mom to the rescue! She's bringing some of the grassfed beef I slow-cooked for them and a salad for my lunch. Ah, the perks of being in one's home city.

    Forgot to mention the pea tendrils. Been eating a lot of this at work, since it's portable. The sautéed kale will probably carry over into breakfast/lunch tomorrow. Full.
