nice to see you, poster formerly known as gully. i'm glad you got your name change wish granted- i liked your old name, too. 'gully' always reminded me of 'scully'
that sharp and stunning character from the x-files (back in the day when i had television and could stomach such shows.) either name is swell to me.
i am ok. gave in and went on a drug i used to take- luvox, usually used in obsessive compulsive disorder, which i dont have, but my brain does do similar cartwheels. anyway, it helps and makes eating right a piece of cake. but it is only a temporary fix to get me over the hump, as i am very mistrustful of psychiatric drugs. it is nice not to waste every waking hour obsessing on food, though. dh really enjoys the overall change in me too.
gardenrn, i am right there with you on the weekend trouble. that has been my pattern for a very long time. sometimes it helps me to just know it is going to happen to some degree, and then let it, but work on shrinking it. for ex- if i am in a pattern of eating goodies all weekend, i say, ok, next weekend, just one day of goodies. after that, one night out to eat free of rules. later , just one dessert. that way, i dont feel so deprived of my weekend treats, which seems to put me in panic mode where i eat everything in sight. maybe that would work for you?
mystic, softheart, sueami- glad to be chatting with you all again.
