The Crazy Thread

I think I'll talk more about this here, as opposed to facing the possibility of being judged on a public message board.

I will seriously benefit from the crazy thread.

I officially acknowledged that I had a problem because I was forced to acknowledge it. I had a bad break-up in university was subsequently medicated to help control my emotions and underlying depression. I remained medicated for a couple of years (at least), but I was terrible at taking my medication, mostly because I was ashamed I had to take it at all. Not to mention the fact that I suffered from terrible side effects. I eventually just stopped taking my meds altogether.

Eventually I started taking a natural supplement that seemed to help.

I no longer take anything to help myself, although I honestly think that I've developed better coping mechanisms in the meantime.

To be continued...

Happy Birthday Mom!

It's me mum's birthday - her 50th. So this is a post about my mom.

Geez, I'm already getting emotional and I haven't even written anything yet. I just love my mom so much - she's one of my best friends and I have no idea what I'd do without her. We talk every single day.

So tonight, we're going down to my parents' house for cake and ice cream - my favourite treat in the whole wide world. I can't wait. Just the six of us, eating cake and ice cream, pure bliss. I even get to pick the cake - woot!

Happy birthday mom - I pray we have many many more nights of cake and ice cream - love ya, love ya, LOVE YA!

I'm back!

It's been waaaayyyy too long to catch up, so I'm just not going to bother, I'll just list the most recent highlights.

I switched to core this week, and so far I absolutely love it! I'm eating about the same amount of food that I used to (in terms of points), but I'm not hungry because I'm not forcing myself to save points for my evening snack. It's going well, and I hope to see a loss this week.

PM is coming to visit my area next week and I'm sooo looking forward to her visit! It'll be the first time I've met anyone from the boards.

I'm taking a super long weekend off this weekend - Friday til Wednesday. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm going to be missing the annual camping trip to PEI since Stephen has to work Saturday and Sunday, but he is off Monday and Tuesday with me - maybe we'll go camping on our own.

Still waiting for our garden to take off. I sure hope we get those veggies to grow! It'll be a great sense of accomplishment if this baby actually works!
