Me at the Onomichi port festival.





This is me at my lowest weight of 105. I didn't notice it then, but I looked really unhealthy.





My husband and I on our wedding day. This picture is our relationship in a nutshell.

My Direction's Unshakeable!

I'm an almost 26 year old woman from Kentucky originally. I married a fantastic guy from the Chicago area and after three years in Japan we're moving back. I've dealt with weight and body issues since I was about 7 or 8 and after a while I really wanted to just approach health, not necessarily weight loss, but health from a new way of thinking.

Have good music and laugh often!

I love books. I cook to relax and love cooking for other people. I think I'd almost rather cook than eat. I love dancing. I also really love playing computer and video games. And tabletop games. I also write so much I basically have a notebook stapled to my hand.

Thanks for your comment on my spark page!

I lived in Japan for a summer while I was in college. Boy was it hard to be an average-sized American girl there!!

I hope you're enjoying the experience of living there. I live in Honlulu now and we've got a few Japanese chain stores here (Don Quixote, Shirokaya). They're my favorite places to shop for housewares because they have the coolest stuff.

Thank you for your comment of my blog. I think what I will do today is come up with an 'after work to do list' which I will make sure I follow after any long shifts in the future. I always come home stressed and tired and I know I should take a bath and go to bed but I often find myself going straight to the cupboards.

I feel horrible today as I knew I would. I know I should forget the binge and get back to my normal eating pattern but I just feel so bloated and gross! I'm thinking about maybe eating at my regular times but just eating less at each meal. I don't want to start up a binge cycle or slow down my metabolism but I've got a party tonight and a dance show tomorrow so I want to look as slim as I can for those! Any ideas?

I am trying to come to terms with the fact that I may not ever have a perfectly flat tummy, and weigh some number that sounded good when I picked it out. :) I like to think that there is more to life than that, and I got sick of obsessing over every calorie, every mistake, every bad day. I want to live.

I think looking at my other positive attributes keeps me from getting down on myself about all the things I don't do as well as I wish I would.

I hope you have an amazing week (and month...and so on). Summer will be here before we know it.
