Bariatric Fitness – Is it a pipe-dream career path?

By |2018-12-29T13:15:04+00:00December 2nd, 2018|My Story, Bariatric Fitness, Bariatric Wellness, Life After Weight Loss|0 Comments

When I am sad, depressed or stressed out I get withdrawn and quiet. Like most of you, these are emotions I don't deal with well. When I start to experience these emotions I instantly think, "I have to be really careful that I don't start feeding my feelings." Because, if I don't, I know I am just a few Twinkies away from weighing over 400 lbs. again. It might seem like a [...]

Sex Love and Obesity Part 21

By |2018-11-10T10:26:18+00:00October 21st, 2018|My Story, Bariatric Wellness, Sex, Love & Obesity|0 Comments

In “Sex, Love and Obesity Part 20,” I talked about the day I finally got in my car and drove away. I was out of the house now, and the change in my stress and anxiety levels allowed me to stop turning to drugs and alcohol as coping mechanisms and escape. Last week, in “Dissociative Identity Disorder – Six Women One Mind,” I tried to paint you a clear picture of how my system works [...]

Dissociative Identity Disorder – Six Women One Mind

By |2018-11-10T10:15:34+00:00October 12th, 2018|My Story, Bariatric Wellness|0 Comments

For people with Dissociative Identity Disorder dealing with fear can be a very uncomfortable experience. Fear is a powerful emotion. It can motivate you to start invoking change very quickly. But the problem is that fear isn’t always rational; which means it can lead you to make irrational decisions if it is the underlying emotion driving your actions. In Sex, Love and Obesity Part 20 I moved out of the apartment. I ran away to [...]

Sex Love and Obesity – Part 20

In Sex, Love and Obesity Part 19 - I had gotten in my car and drove away. Have you ever dated someone who brings out the worst in you? It’s like a strange chemical reaction that you can’t explain. It’s like having two typical household items underneath your bathroom sink. Bleach and Vinegar. Singularly they are both safe, non-toxic products.  But mix them together and now you’ve got a dangerous chlorine gas that can cause [...]

Sex Love and Obesity Part 19

In Sex Love and Obesity Part 18 I talked about the fight that Peter and I had that sent me over the edge. At this point I didn’t care if he loved me. I didn’t even care if nobody else ever loved me. It didn’t matter that I loved him anymore. It didn’t matter how much I loved him. It didn’t matter that the sex was once amazing. At that point I really didn’t care [...]

Sex Love and Obesity Part 18

In Sex Love and Obesity Part 17 I had drawn a line in the sand. I had clearly told Peter that if the fighting and arguments didn’t stop and if I continued to feel emotionally abused in the relationship I was going to leave. You know how they say perception is reality? That was so true here. His perception was that we didn’t fight that much. That there were more good times than there [...]

Sex Love and Obesity Part 17

In Sex Love and Obesity Part 16 I told you that I had hit the proverbial rock-bottom. Sometimes you THINK you are at rock-bottom, then something happens, and you suddenly go “Oh, No, okay, THIS is rock-bottom.” You think it can’t possibly get any worse; then it does. We’re going to fast forward a little bit. January goes by. February comes and about a week before I am about to leave for an all girls trip to [...]
