Checking In

I know its been awhile so I thought it was time to check in.  Things have been going really good.  The bulimia is under control and I'm working on eating healthier and I have lost a few pounds.  I'm trying to just do each day alittle bit better than the last.  A few new things I'm doing is I took my home scale to my counselors office so I can't weigh each day and let me tell you I'm going through withdrawals.  Every morning I wake up wanting to jump on the scale and then remember its not here.  So I won't find out how much I've lost this last week until tomorrow.  Another thing I've done is made a vision board.  For those who don't know what that is you take what you want, such as losing weight and you put things that symbolize that on a piece of posterboard or whatever you want to use and you hang it up where you can see it all the time.  Mine is hanging right beside my bed so I can see it every night before I go to sleep and every morning when I wake up and it helps to have that visual stimulation in front of you.  I haven't started my exercise back yet but it is something I will eventually add.  I'm trying to work on the all or nothing thinking I have and this sense of perfection that I must do everything perfect or I've blown the whole day.  Each day is a chance to do better than the last.  Hope everything is going well for all of you and I will be checking back in as I make progress.


  1. I'm glad to hear things are going well Christina. Taking the scale out of the house is an interesting idea. I am drawn to weigh myself everyday and sometimes the number I see can affect my mood for quite a while. Best wishes as you continue on your journey.

  2. Good for you! Glad things are going well!

    I have a scale in my house but I never get on it. It's a lying piece of crap! You can get on it & get a believeable number - then get on it 5 minutes later & you'll have either gained or lost a crazy amount - like 30 lbs ! GRRR!

  3. Oh boy, the all or nothing and I are very close companions. It's probably the single biggest reason I have either gained weight or not lost weight for the past 2 years especially.
    I'm so glad you're feeling well and have the bulemia under control.
    I am really rooting for you!
