Binge Eating - When Do the Urges Stop

The great Ms. O gave CNN an interview about her overeating and even binge eating when she was really stressed out.  Here is the link.  She even admitted to eating 30 lbs of mac and cheese!!! I frown my nose at this now, but I know I have done some Haagen Das damage in my time. I think binge eating is something that has to be discussed in the WLS area because many of us reach these unhealthy weights due to stress factors and binge-eating!

So It Begins

My daughter just received her first email from one of her top-pick colleges that she'd been accepted. I felt excited and proud and a little sad all at the same time. You see, I will miss her when she goes off to school. She's one of the people I probably confide in most and she has been the most supportive of me on my WLS journey. I'll miss her encouragement.

I love you KB, and I'm very proud of your accomplishment! Keep up the great work and keep striving for more; you can do all things through Christ Jesus, who strengthens you!


China's State Dinner












The state dinner for China's President Hu Jintao may have received a luke-warm reception, but Michelle Obama looked absolutely fabulous.  The beautiful red gown was created by Sarah Burton of the London house Alexander McQueen.  I think Michelle knocked this look out of the park.  She is a beautiful woman!

Smoothing Things Out

I'm still losing weight and down 67 lbs! I have been looking at some different undergarments that would smooth out my tummy and sides without the torture of wearing a girdle. My mom has probably been trying to get me to wear a girdle since I was 10 years old. Can you imagine someone trying to persuade a child to wear a girdle??? Come on!!! So I have battled with my weight and my aversion to corsetry torture devices until now.
