The following is an AAR (After Action Review) of the following incidents, leading to the award of super mom, presented by myself to myself...

Who: Princess
When: Friday Morning
Where: Breakfast Table
What: Princess puking her breakfast and her dinner from last night all over the kitchen table.
Reason for the award: Hubby is gone and has been for two weeks
Actions Taken: Mopping, Bath, some gagging (on my part) some loves (that I would pay for later)

When: 12:20am, 1:20am, 2:20am, 3:20am, 4:20am, 5:20am, 7am Saturday Morning
Who: Hosmerita (me)
Where: Master Bathroom Porcelain throne, followed by a day on the couch with two super energised children running around (princess was feeling much better.)
What: Revisiting my meals from the past 2 days.

I fully accept the award of Super Mom, at least for the next few days.

By the way I weighed myself this morning just for fun, I have lost 8 pounds. I am sure the whole puking numerous times thing helped jump start the weight loss!

12 Steps

I am starting a 12 step program.
In this program we are suppose to admit to ourselves, God and another human being (so the dog doesn't count) that I have a problem.
I have chosen to share it with all of you.
Now before you start to smile because you think I am joking, I am 100% serious and I just really need a TON of accountability and support.

My name is Hosmerita (some of you know my real name) and I am an over-eater.

August 23rd will be my day one to recovery.

I hide what I eat.

I feel guilty after eating it.

I know that I eat too much.

The other night, I ate until I almost became physically sick. I was at my sister's and my fingers started to swell up so bad that I had to cut off my wedding ring. I weigh 80 pounds more than I did 4 years ago.

This is my wake up call.

God was telling me that something had to change.

I have a sponsor who has lost 100 pounds in this program and she will be there for me every step of the way.

I e-mail her my meal for the next day the night before and I must stick to it. So I wont be having any more sweets or bad carbs, so please don't be offended if I turn down something you made. My life depends on this.

I weighed in tonight, and then I wont touch the scale until the first of every month.

Wish me luck, have me in your prayers.

Weigh in August 22nd 11:28pm : 181 lbs (10 pounds more than when I went into the hospital to have Richie)
