Dear 270 Tara;
We don’t know each other very well. In fact, we’ve never met. I mean, I know who you are. You’re famous round these parts. Everyone knows you. Everyone knows you were struggling to enjoy life. You didn’t think very much of yourself and had gotten yourself in a dark space and [...]
I earned this.
Then day 8 came and it didn’t go so well.
I let the negative thinking get the best of me.
I let it control my emotions.
I let it control my mindless eating.
It doesn’t however control me to the point that I can’t [...]
The topic of bulimia is one that is rarely (if at all) talked about in a public realm. I understand that this post may be difficult for some people to read (triggers) but before I begin let me be very clear: This is my journey. I have suffered from bulimia my entire adult [...]

My friend Ryan (nomorebacon) wrote a really great blog post last week about the Power of the Tribe. He was referring to the power of coming together and helping a fellow blogger (journeybeyondsurvival) get a therapy dog for her chickadee. It was awesome to watch [...]
Until then I’ll stumble along on this path…
This path called life.

I got a comment from my last post “I want off this Path” that has had me thinking pretty heavily the last couple of days about this LCJ I’m on (we’re on). I wanted to share it with you because I think it’s not only one of the most important parts to understand [...]

Some days I am prepared to fight the good fight. I eat consciously. I move consciously. I live consciously. Other days I feel like crawling into the refrigerator and eating my way through every emotion I’m trying to forget. Some days I want to sit [...]
