Re: Sammybunny's Check In

Totally failed at my projected N day. In a major depressive episode at the moment (I have bipolar II disorder) and just ate to fill the void. Tomorrow will be better. Did manage 2 short walks today, though. That's a win.

Re: Why did you leave? Why are you back?

I've tried to do No S unsuccessfully over the last 9 years because I keep getting distracted by yo-yo dieting and binge eating. I am now at my highest weight and desperate to make better habits for myself. I am back to stay and I can't wait to get this weight off in a sustainable, sane fashion.
