How have you been? I had some coffee earlier to wake up too.

Good for you not binging! Drinking water helps me, too. I don't have anything to really binge on on hand. That's about the only way I can avoid it. I've never felt like binging on veggies. I bought some celery and cauliflower to put in salads. Now to cut them up.

So sick of this stupid ED. Tired of wasting so much time & energy on it. Thought I was skinny then went to one of those stupid pro sites & felt like a whale. Been running a lot.

I have been watching My six hundred pound life on TLC channel. When I saw how big this woman was I thought just how hard it must be for her but she had such a good attitude and lost more than half of her weight in about a year. I realized I need to have a more positive attitude about my weight and be more realistic in how I can lose my weight if she can.

I know you don't need to lose any weight. I was just thinking about that show and wanted to share that. The ED is full of lies about us. I'm realizing that. I thought I was so huge until I saw that woman and thought if she has that great attitude and got counseling, I can, too. I have a hard time talking about my ED. I tend to keep my thoughts about it to myself because when I do talk about it I end up getting worse for some reason. I can't figure it out yet why that happens, it's like I jinx myself. Not saying any of this applies to you.

We all do what is best for us. Are you still seeing a therapist about the ED? If so I hope it is helping.

Weight loss goes so slow for me. But it is progress and even if progress is slow it is still progress. I really need to exercise but have gotten into a rut of not doing it. Afraid of the pain it will bring. I need to go very slow with it. I need to have patience with myself, too, which I find hard at times. There was a time when I jogged and walked a lot and did pretty good. I have less energy now but it's not impossible to exercise. Just have to be gentle with myself in all ways.

I sautéed fresh vegetables last night. They're really good. I'm going to have them with my dinner tonight.

I haven't been exercising either Lucy and I really need it. It's so cold out that I don't want to walk anywhere. But I'm hoping to get back into going to the gym soon hopefully. I can walk in almost all weather but 9 degrees was way to cold yesterday. My face and legs were frozen solid and I couldn't feel them just from a walk to the pharmacy and back.

I might do some yoga tonight

I'm having a hard time right now. Sorry not to be here for anyone else right now. Running like a maniac and know I'm not eating enough for that amount of activity. Starting to fool with (i.e., lower) my nightly dosage of Seroquel to whatever I feel like each night. Slippery slope.

Sorry you are having a hard time. I hope it gets better.

I love sauteed veggies. Thinking of getting another membership to the Y. I think they may still have a discount program for those with low incomes. Wow, it's frigid where you live! I wouldn't go out in that but you may have had to. I hope it gets warmer there. I thought it was cold here but that's much worse.

I've been feeling very unstable and hopless today, and I ended up bringing twice. I felt the urge to purge after the 2nd time, but I managed not to.
