The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

I posted mine under Tuesday because for some reason it has been Tuesday all day to me. I couldn't figure out why we were doing weigh ins but just went with it. Hahaha. |
My son is out of school this week and coming to help my husband. My husband thought with the help he has hired he could get the few pieces of skin (15 ft long metal panels) on his big machine warehouse. He sadly misjudged how not back to normal he is and the help he hired has a strong back but no background and it was exhausting my husband trying to tell him how to do each little thing and showing him so much. With my son there yesterday my husband kept going on about how good it was to have someone who knew what to do and how they still worked so well together. I was there a few minutes and realized that my son worked with his dad for so many years that he anticipates what needs to be done and gets there before my husband, giving him the easier (though still exhausting ) jobs without him ever realizing it. Grateful to him for giving up his only week off for this.
Grateful to my DIL for insisting that my son come help out today instead of doing what they had already planned for him to do today and altering her schedule a bit so he could be here. At first, he had planned to take today off to do something on their to-do list. When he showed up he said she had insisted that they could do it later. She's a keeper.
Allergy pills. I haven't needed them in ages, but yesterday I needed them badly and they did a wonderful job.
That first cup of coffee in the mornings.
The screened room in the mornings and afternoons. I love starting and ending my day listening to the different birds.
Realizing while ago how much decaf I have been drinking lately. Somehow I have been craving warm drinks, but when I went for a refill I used the last creamer in the container, which I just replaced 10 days ago. I normally carefully portion out 40 calories worth a day, but in 10 days I have used 223 portions at 10 calories a piece. Even if I have been cooking healthier instead of ordering what they offer and have cut out having a bowl of cereal at night and lost two pounds this week, I have gotten over 2000 extra calories in a 10 day period. WoW! That could add up to a pound in two weeks. I gotta get off the coffee except for my morning cup and switch to green tea when I want a warm drink, which I like with no sugar or cream in it. It's the little things that do me in when I don't pay attention.

- still time to 'fix' things |
- at least I know - there's a name for it - they reason I binge in the evening. Binge eating disorder. I think I've had it for many years.
- pretty flowers blooming
- 6 goldfinches feeding at the same time - a thrill
- seeing a photo of my favorite bird that a friend posted
- they found out why the ride at the fair broke (killing 1 & injuring many) corrosion.
- my cousin Lou is in the hospital. So glad they are figuring it out. He has sepsis - like I had in January. (also had a friend who actually died from it 7 weeks ago) Too much.
friends, family, you all, fb, internet, cell, car works well

I just realized that I put mine under Tuesday too. What is with us today? |
I hope that you find information on your Binge eating that will help you. A very dear friend that used to live by me learned after years of binge eating that she was cramming things she wanted to say back down her throat instead of saying them because she felt it would make her a bad person to voice some of the things she wanted to tell certain people. She was also going through the motions of stuffing her feelings back down because she feared what feeling them and reacting to them would do. From her upbringing, she honestly didn't know that it was okay and "normal" to react to any feeling but happiness. After figuring that out for herself her therapy that had for years not accomplished much went forward very quickly and with her counselor, she was soon able to find ways to deal with things appropriately and when that happened the binging stopped, she didn't have to try to stop the binging. There are times she overeats now because she likes the food and she has times that she admits that she feels afraid that she is on the verge of a binge, but she hasn't binged in almost 20 years now. I hope you have as good of luck as she did.
Thanks for all your thoughts and ideas.

And have a look on Amazon - lots of books on BED there and they are listable by popularity as well. Have a good day, Beverly!|

1) payday at the gym today and Ray's payday was yesterday. I always love paydays! |
2) Chrissy is coming to teach with me this morning. We always have a good time together!
3) my boss lets me come in an hour later on Wednesday to the radio station so I can teach my Wednesday class. I think that works out great for both of us!
4) had a look at the fall TV schedule online - 28 series that we will be taping. Yikes! (But we love it!)
5) knee is feeling a lot better these days
