Cards and cardio.

So, I sent out some Christmas cards today. Dear Grandpa Max,  Sorry I didn’t include a note with the hardcover my mom asked me to mail you. Media mail doesn’t allow for correspondence. So I thought I’d drop you a line and see how you’re doing. I hope you have a very merry Christmas! Oh, guessContinue reading “Cards and cardio.”

Wow. Just, wow.

I’ve been spaced out and completely unfocused lately. I’m not sure why, but maybe my body’s adjusting to the dieting. I’ve stuck with the no-flour diet without relapse since whenever it was that I started it. (A few weeks ago? I have no sense of time.) It’s not hard. There are ample snack foods, butContinue reading “Wow. Just, wow.”

The cycle of shame.

For those of you who are following my diet journey, scroll down past the asterisks! 🙂 That part starts there. Everything before it is too depressing to read anyway. Oh! And, Emilia, you might want to skip this blog post. 🙂 Okay, so Charlie wrote back to me this morning thusly: Meg, We have threeContinue reading “The cycle of shame.”

Slippery like ice!

It’s the end of day four for me of not eating processed sugar or flour. It’s been going great. Today, I lost interest in eating. I normally love to eat, and I miss it, but when you remove processed sugar and flour from what I’m allowed to eat, I’m bored with it. This is hugeContinue reading “Slippery like ice!”

Happy day of the turkey!

So, I’m going to try the Bright Lines Eating diet. Both of my parents are willing to pay me $200 if I manage to lose weight. That’s great! But I’m worried about hunger with this one. The book tells you exactly what to eat and how much of it to eat. Bear with my memory here, becauseContinue reading “Happy day of the turkey!”

The origin of my food addiction.

TRIGGER WARNING: GENERAL, BROAD DISCUSSION OF PHYSICAL ABUSE (NOTHING TOO GRAPHIC, JUST SOME NONSPECIFIC REFERENCES) I’ve been reading a very enlightening dieting book called Bright Line Eating by Susan Peirce Thompson, PhD. You can follow that link to its Amazon page. It talks about how an addiction can occur if you overindulge in an addictiveContinue reading “The origin of my food addiction.”

Help! I’m trapped… on the roof.

Okay, so, that’s no longer true, since my dad eventually came walking home from dinner and heard me calling his name on a fell wind. “CODGERRR!” He looked all around and couldn’t find me. “I’M UP HERE!!” He still couldn’t find me. “UP HERE! LOOK UP!” He found me. “I’M TRAPPED UP HERE! YOU HAVEContinue reading “Help! I’m trapped… on the roof.”

Intergenerational?

So, it occurred to me that I’m not losing weight despite my iffing (intermittent fasting). And it’s not that my body’s being resistant, although it might be. It’s more like this: when I can eat (after 4:00 PM each day), I eat junk foods. Sometimes I even find myself eating junk food for no discernibleContinue reading “Intergenerational?”

Updates from Meg world!

Hi, everyone!! Here’s the latest. It’s about 2:00 PM here on a gorgeous fall day that feels like summertime. How odd! It’s November, for crying out loud. But I’ve been using the nice weather to do some exterior painting and scraping for my dad. I’ve done the area around the windows, but now I’m strugglingContinue reading “Updates from Meg world!”
