Just 1 day at a time

I am an addict. As such, it is crucial that I set boundaries to keep me from falling prey. I engage in encouragement and support regularly and seek the same. In order to not fall victim to my drugs of choice yet again, I must be active in the fight against my addictive, maladaptive and isolating natures.

That's where SparkPeople comes in these days, along with OA and working the 12 steps, one day at a time.

TOTAL LOSS -39.0 11/2012
THEN I STOPPED FOR ALMOST A YEAR- GAINING HALF THE WEIGHT BACK.

Until I eventually began an abstinence in OA.



My Program:
1. Create an entire menu of staple meals that I love to eat and that are easy to make/prep in advance.

2. Pay attention to portions. Count calories. Measure/weigh food to become aware of how much I eat--NOT to restrict--but to encourage mindfulness.

3. Alternatives. Some foods are too hard not to overeat. I can eat them in moderation (occasionally) when out, but for home, I'm seeking alternatives to satisfy me that are not "diet" foods.

4. Be active daily. Usually a walk, for me and Jack (dog). When my breasts are smaller, I think I'd like to try running.

5. Seek support. I'm delighted to have found SP and hope to find others in the SF Bay area to be active with.

Other Information:
Ultimately, I'd like to be 80 pounds lighter than I am as of 4/24/12.

Oh, goodness...glad you're on the mend, at least. Had an interesting discussion once with someone about the future of medicine and how one day, we'll be able to replace all body parts with a synthetic counterpart. Creepy.

I'm not going to be a stranger...I already considered "coming back" but I can't right now. I have so much negativity in my head right now, and sometimes it feels like I use SP to *itch and moan and that isn't getting me anywhere. The gym I joined in MARCH has a website and I'm trying to use it more - log work outs, food, etc. It allows me to schedule work outs, has work outs I can follow, monitor my progress, etc...but it is completely private.

I won't leave SP for good - but I need to refocus and find that "can-do" attitude, again, you know?

Oh my gosh, that is insane that they didn't use even a local anesthetic! I hope they gave you something good for pain to use at home, at least. Yikes.

I love to run trails - so much nature and peace :) I'm feeling so much better on the high protein, just gotta really stick with it for once!
How are you doing?
