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!”

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.”

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!”

Quick! Don’t think about food.

So, my iffing (intermittent fasting) hasn’t gone well. Over the past few days, I’ve been stressed, and I’ve broken the fast in the evening to eat one item of junk food. Yesterday, it was a few bites of cookies. The day before, it was some sort of individually wrapped cake that someone gave my dad.Continue reading “Quick! Don’t think about food.”

Doing my dead-cat routine!

I haven’t blogged lately about my iffing (intermittent fasting) efforts. I figured I’d catch you all up on it.  I’d assumed that a later-in-the-day window for eating would work well for me, like from 4:00 PM until bedtime, for example. However, I was wrong. For whatever weird reason, I feel compelled to eat as soonContinue reading “Doing my dead-cat routine!”

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.”

Life’s peachy!

I’ve been enjoying writing my memoirs. I think they might even be publishable, since there’s so much scandal and intrigue to my life. I’ve been writing about the early years when we lived in my first house from birth to age seven. That was a very nice period in my life, and writing about itContinue reading “Life’s peachy!”

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!”

Why intermittent fasting works for me!

I was taking a nap before bed last night, and I felt very relaxed and dopey (you know, moreso than usual), and so I was doing some soul-searching, and I realized why I like intermittent fasting (IF) as much as I do, and why it’s actually working for me. For many years, I’ve had aContinue reading “Why intermittent fasting works for me!”
