I started off in my post “3 Diet Pills That Didn’t Work For Me” describing some of the less-than-optimal experiences I have had with various diet pills. Jumping right into the second half of my list:
Hoodia is supposed to be an appetite suppressant. On most of the Hoodia [...]
In the interest of staying honest I suppose I have to admit I’ve tried diet pills. I haven’t tried very many, mostly because my experiences with the ones I did try were negative, but I have sampled from several of the major “genres” of diet pill – namely, the fat blockers, the carb blockers, the [...]
I’ve lost nearly 60 pounds. I am definitely happy about that. What I am not so happy about is the resulting saggy skin. You know how when you look at Christmas lights and kind of halfway cross your eyes so it blurs a little bit and looks really cool? Well if you look at my [...]
P90x is a workout system, by the Beachbody company, that is led by (and developed by, I think) Tony Horton. And it will utterly kick your butt. In a good way. No – in an awesome way.
I am finding myself in a Pro / Con list mood. Here goes.
I love food, to a ridiculous extent. If I had to follow a long term diet where I had to cut out a certain food or entire food group, it would really bother me. So pretty much, my diet strategy focuses on eating whatever I feel like, just in reasonable portions. Which sounds so much [...]

When I was severely depressed, I would sit in my room and think of every possible way I could block out the rest of the world. I had blackout curtains on the windows so no light could get in. My bedroom door was constantly closed. I never answered my cell phone. Most of the time, [...]
I read this book in its entirety last autumn – more than once in fact. I found it very motivating and inspirational. The section on setting goals and keeping them were especially helpful to me at the time. The book was a surprisingly easy and interesting read, for a non-fiction book. I thought the author [...]
Last night I had a pretty bad night, as mental health goes. As I mentioned in my post “Binge Eating and Other Eating Problems,” I have a problem with bingeing. I then tend to purge, not with throwing up, but with exercise. Yesterday I binged and exercised so much that, by bedtime, my [...]
I am fairly good at making myself exercise. It is drudgery sometimes, but it usually gets done, sooner or later. When it comes to getting my boyfriend to exercise, however, it takes some creativity. We both have a tendency to sit at home, wanting to go do something fun but not really being able to [...]
