Strange food attitudes.

I’ve avoided junk food all month except for some chocolate I ate on the first full day of my period. (Meg’s gotta have it!) Something strange has happened. I’m starting to wonder why I’ve always put so much filth into my body. Yes, Pringles suddenly seem like filth. I think it’s because their ingredients areContinue reading “Strange food attitudes.”

A fun blog post about many things.

It’s hot. Like, really, really hot. Like Frosty-the-Snowman-just-died-in-two-seconds-and-now-I’m-traumatized-by-his-death-all-over-again hot. And humid. Did I mention humid? And it’s not even July or August yet! Send help! Things are going well. I went to the gym late last night and wound up sleeping until 1:20 PM today. I’d like to get up two or three hours earlier,Continue reading “A fun blog post about many things.”

The calm before the storm.

Hey, everyone! Here I am. My diet’s going freaktastically well! Having someone to answer to makes all the difference. But also, I realized that if I go a week without junk food, I quit wanting junk food. That’s major. It’s not something I can easily eat in moderation for two reasons: It makes me feelContinue reading “The calm before the storm.”

Pass the spinach!

So, things have been going great with my life coach, Leonie. She recommended this salad recipe, and it was divine! I even photographed it: … to preserve the moment for all time. (Then I ate it.) It was like eating fancy restaurant food. (But don’t get me started on the artificial, styrofoam strawberries. It’s onlyContinue reading “Pass the spinach!”

Updates from Meg world!

I’ve done a lot of soul-searching and have realized, both by reading my food book and talking to Ashley Leia in the comments, that I need to face my junk food addiction head on. What I need to do is wait until I have an intense craving for junk food, preferably for some I canContinue reading “Updates from Meg world!”

From Fat to Free: Chapter 1

Okay, so I’m reading a new book about weight loss called From Fat to Free: How to End Your Toxic Relationship with Food by Elizabeth Lizberg. It has journaling questions for each chapter, so I thought, what the heck, I’ll blog them. There’s a companion Action Plan Journal which is rather expensive, but it turns outContinue reading “From Fat to Free: Chapter 1”

Great news!

I have great news! Apparently my weight-loss efforts have been paying off. That, or our scales are broken. [Shrugs.] I weighed myself today and couldn’t believe it. I think I’m making progress and am on the right track. I’ve just got to keep it up. I’ve come up with a tenuous solution to my dietingContinue reading “Great news!”

Can’t ever keep from falling apart…

Last night was dreadful. I’d spent the day exercising and eating canned foods. Late at night while I was in the bathroom, I heard someone acting hysterical on the other end of my dad’s landline phone. (He uses the speakerphone due to his near-total deafness.) I had a bad feeling when I exited the bathroom.Continue reading “Can’t ever keep from falling apart…”

Prince Albert in a can!

Guess what? I’ve created a new diet for myself. I’m calling it the canned foods diet. I guess it’s rather self-explanatory. I’m not wanting to only eat canned foods. Technically, I don’t care what I eat if it’s healthy. But I’ve realized that canned foods are affordable, healthy (I’m trying to get BPA-free cans), andContinue reading “Prince Albert in a can!”

Exposed to unhealthy eating and family photos.

Dear Amy: I recently decided to move back in with my mom and younger sister for the remainder of the pandemic. The problem is that I find myself thinking extremely unkind things about them, because both of them are overweight. I find myself thinking almost obsessively about how gross I find their bodies and feelingContinue reading “Exposed to unhealthy eating and family photos.”
