Check-in | 24 April 2017

OA Check-In | 21 April 2017

The bingeing has not stopped and I feel like I am on a runaway train.

OA Check-In | 04 April 2017

Yesterday was a big test because work was chaotic and hectic and I don't do well with chaotic and hectic.   But, it helped that I pre-planned and had the food I needed to have at work with me at work.  It was still very difficult and it did feel like a bit of white-knuckling... Continue Reading →
