The day I broke my stomach.

Yesterday was an epic dieting fail, but I’m hopeful that I can put it behind me. I’ve already started today with some healthy oatmeal, and I have a healthy dinner planned as well. But yesterday things went awry. My sleep schedule got messed up when LuLu the pup woke me up way too early. IContinue reading “The day I broke my stomach.”

A harsh taskmistress.

Okay, so I’ve taken action and have commissioned my life coach, Leonie, to hold me accountable for what I eat every day. I’m paying her monthly to get multiple emails from me each day and maybe answer them once a day with either encouragement or admonitions. I’ve known I needed this for a while. IContinue reading “A harsh taskmistress.”

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.”

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!”

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!”

What lies beneath.

DEAR ABBY: I’ve been dating “Karl” for five years. We live separately. I thought our relationship was pretty solid until a recent health scare. A few days ago, I had a severe allergic reaction to something I ate at dinner. When I realized how serious it was, I immediately rushed to the ER. (I hadContinue reading “What lies beneath.”

The fasting’s going pretty well.

Hi guys! I thought I’d give an update on my efforts at fasting. First off, I weighed myself, and I weigh around 205. I think I managed to break just under 200 earlier this year, but then my diet went to heck. I suspect I’ve lost a few pounds off of whatever my weight jumpedContinue reading “The fasting’s going pretty well.”

There’s a rainbow at the end!

Oh, drudgery. My diet went off the rails today. I’ve been sticking to the fasting, which is great. I’ve become a master at going for 15 to 18 hours without eating. Hurrah. The problem–well, today, anyway–is that I decided I shouldn’t break the fast with junk food. Not that I’ve been doing that–yesterday I madeContinue reading “There’s a rainbow at the end!”
