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.”

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 am trapped in the bathroom!

Well, today’s the day of the contest for 250 words, and I’ve written my story. (I can’t post it here for a few days, as per contest rules, but if anyone wants to read it sooner or offer me last minute beta-reading feedback [we’ve still got five hours!], definitely let me know!) To those ofContinue reading “Help! I am trapped in the bathroom!”

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?”

Not at my level.

Do you all know that guy I liked who lives in Thailand? Well, he just dumped me, although I don’t think that’s the right word. I finally asked him if he wanted to be friends with me, because I was confused by his sporadic communication and his tendency to answer my messages without ever initiatingContinue reading “Not at my level.”

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!”
