I am making long overdue lifestyle changes to have way more energy, less bloating and constant brain fog, more confidence and finally feel strong and healthy inside and out. Let's do this. 1/15/18.

After gaining weight a few years ago I jumped onto the whole body love/body acceptance/health at every size movement. I read the books, listened to the podcasts, and joined the fb groups. but i can't be in denial anymore. i miss my old body. i look and feel better at a lower weight. so while i still do believe in the basic tenants of the movement (everyone deserves respect regardless of their size, physical disabilities, health status, and more) I'm gonna try to aim to lose at least 30-40 lbs this year, for myself.

In response to a confession. So much THIS. Happy? Eat. Sad? Eat. Bored? Eat. Lonely? Eat. Favorite TV show is on?Eat (okay, this is more of a habit, but you get what I'm saying). Severing emotion from nourishment is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. That candy bar isn't bringing you joy, regardless of what you're telling yourself. It's giving you a temporary rush of dopamine from the reward center of your brain, and that's keeping you hooked on the emotion + food = happiness cycle. We all do it and most of us do it way too much, hence the rising obesity epidemic. It's one reason why getting serious about losing weight is so difficult and mentally exhausting.

I love this convo. Eating healthy can be and is joyful (especially did you say something about cinnamon and pears?) but you need mindfulness and time... and I see food mostly as joy. But I understand needing to see it as fuel. It really helps with separating how you feel ... if I see it as fuel and choose boringer options, it helps me not eat too much. I am too impatient to cook much

We're taught from a very young age to associate food with happiness and reward. I don't mean the joy of bonding with people that a meal can bring; it's the "good job, here's a cookie" mentality. It's the thought process of rewarding yourself with junk food for doing something "good." It's honestly a huge mind fuck once you confront these thoughts and start learning how to think differently. I'm not a dog. I don't need a biscuit for being a good girl.

I often wonder...are there any people out there who have successfully lost a lot of weight and kept it off without eating a lot of veggies and fruits? I used to be obese and I would never have been able to lose the weight if I hadn't embraced veggies and starting eating tons more of them. I often tried just portion controlling my foods that were higher in calories before but I never felt satisfied at all.

In response to a confession. Oh, don't get me wrong--I love all my healthy food and since I eat like, the vast majority of my diet consisting of healthy stuff, I feel great and have tons of energy. But...having had issues in the past with orthorexia and exercise addiction, I've learned that it is OK to not "ban" anything. So yes, that sometimes means I'm in the mood for a Reese's for dessert instead of my usual frozen berries and Greek yogurt. And if I'm going out, I'll have a beer or a cocktail with my friends. I definitely do not dislike healthy eating, but I do think some of the "clean eating" trends go just a bit too far.

It's 2:30 and I'm glad that today has been really productive to make up for the last few days. Did chores around the house, load of laundry, 50-min Ebike rides (so fun with the sun finally out), grocery shopping, prepped lunch and green juice for the week, and made a delicious grilled cheese with fried egg sandwich with leftover tomato soup.

I listen to all kinds of different music at work. It can be alternative,70s, 80s, classical, opera, EDM, KPop, hair bands...whatever. Every once in a while I'll wonder if a certain band or singer is still together/active, so I'll look them up, and the weird thing is, not only are they still touring, but they're playing in my area within a couple months. This happened three times last year! So today I was listening to 70s soft rock, and looked up a band. They are playing a small venue near me in March! So I checked out the tickets, and there's less than 20 left. The ones closest to the stage only have one seat here and there. So I went to some ticket websites. Yeah, that's what happened - they bought the good seats up and are selling at 3x the venue's ticket price. Dammit!!!

In response to a confession. Those are my thoughts on her, too. I mostly kept my mouth shut because I wanted to hear why my niece feels the way she does. We got on the topic because I was talking about LDR's poetry book, and niece asked me if I knew that TS started copying her in 2013. I'm telling you, this kid did her homework. I had no idea, but I'm honestly not surprised, seeing as how TS is known for ripping off black culture and recycling sounds and then claiming them as her own. Garbage, indeed.
