Grieving (lost my only daughter 3/17) job (most of my co-workers have a shit attitude, so no matter how I start the day I am ready to quit by noon; also having worked since I was 14 I am ready but not able to retire) carb cravings that just will not quit, and other than the grief all of my friends are in the same boat so nobody has the energy to help...

    Hi there. I had my first real binge since starting to diet 3 months ago. Not sure why but I just had to have a Pizza Hut smore's cookie. I ate half of it and now feel ill. I know that it doesn't have to define my success but I always get down on myself when I "fail." just wanted to see if anyone else gets this way.

  • This week feels like a "just do it" sort of one. Whether it's walking or picking up the weights, just integrating a habit we can go for on a regular basis. Even if we make time for 5, 10, 15 minutes or more.
