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.

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.

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Person Award!!

Thank you so much for your comments on my blogs. I always love to read them. Indeed we are very likely going to move, even occupied right now with buying a house (eeek who'd have thought it).

LOL I love my old MacBook! I bought it in 2006 and I've been thinking it's bound to die soon since about 2009...but here we are! I almost wish it would just die so I can get a new one :)
