LYNNABEL's CalorieKing Blog

In childhood and high school I was always a healthy weight. After graduating from college, my weight fluctuated (mostly in the up-direction). I got to an all time high of 158 in 2000, and joined weight watchers (the in-home version - I've always been private about my weight) and lost about 28 pounds. I was able to maintain that loss through several major live challenges, but at the 28th major issue to hit me in the space of 1 year (a slight exaggeration), the pounds came back along with loneline...

I haven't battled an appetite like this in years. :scream2: I know it is connected to me doing more cardio. Its as if I simply cannot get enough carbs. It has lasted for a month now.

Drizzly/dreary day today. But I get to work from home so I feel cozy. Unfortunately, I have no attention span.

Ellie had a friend tell her she didn't want to be her friend anymore. Ellie was sobbing, and it made me think of myself in 2nd grade - it was awful, the girl cliques. I talked through it with El, we listed some things she could do. Told her I loved her and was so sorry that had happened. I asked her what she did when her friend said that, and she said, "I just walked away.&quo...

Some Mondays make question my entire existence.
