No virtual option with my OA group as of yet but I will check with one of the girls that knows the head of the group.

Talked with one of the girl from the group and she hasn't heard anything  so we are assuming no virtual meetings offered at this time.

I tried to find another online forum that deals with  eating  disorders  primarily but haven't found much so far.

Had the urge to go to Dairy Queen today for a big burger and ended up buying 3 doubles some fries and a butterfinger blizzard.

Got home and ate it all in one sitting now that is bad even for me.

Not sure why I told you guys here but I needed to admit it to somebody I guess.

@Teri Anne Thank you for sharing, no one can stop you buying what you want to, you are an adult - I am terrible if I see a new product or a limited edition something. Most recently the ads for double big macs, I don't even rate Mcdonalds because their burgers are tiny! It was only my son copying all the times I have said I dont like them that stopped me getting one when I was in town.

I think sometimes we fixate so much on something that we just need to get it out of our system and move on - use that bleuch feeling to associate it with that place for the next time you get those hankerings, or make your own burger at home where you will be less likely to splurge so much and can make something that tastes so much better. x

Cravings are best taken care of when you have them. If you don't, they pile up and you REALLY overdo when you cave in. My spouse and I had burgers last night too. I'd been craving them since I'd done the banking in the morning. There's a Red Robin across the street and it smelled SO good...


In case you think they were healthy in any way, they came from a place called "Lefty's Cheesesteak." We had them with curly fries and corned beef eggrolls. They were fantastic, but not especially healthy. There were chocolate molasses ginger cookies for dessert (those were home made, I've been baking since yesterday). 


The thing to remember is that weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint. It's OK to indulge once in a while. The key is just not to overdo. It had been a couple of weeks since I had takeout food (Of course EVERYTHING is takeout right now). It's OK to treat yourself now and again.

Thanks for the comments it does help.

I still feel pretty guilty about my DQ binge but I will make myself stay home so I don't do that again today.

@Teri Anne don't hesitate to seek out support here. You are cared about, and welcome to post your threads here. My wife Suzie and I are on two different tracks but not in competition, on our fitness and weight health. Because we have two different body types, and metabolisms. When it comes to treating ourselves to a meal of comfort food, we declare a "Food Holiday". One meal didn't make me fat and skipping one meal isn't going to make me skinny. We just have to keep the Food Holiday to one meal a month. My weakness is CHOCOLATES so every day at the close of my food intake time, I go to the refrigerator, count out 16 Ghirardelli Chocolate chips 60% Coca and slowly eat them before brushing my teeth and going to bed. If you deny yourself all forms of food pleasure you're setting yourself up for failure. It was tough for me to give up Beer, Bread, and Pasta but I knew I would never give up CHOCOLATE. My doctor reminds me that I can eat whatever I want, as long as I'm willing to spend those calories on the treadmill or bike. Calories in vs Energy out. 


Hugs, (masked)

That plan sounds like a great idea Mindy so thank you.

I gave up alcohol and that was quite a few years back.

I have managed to give up donuts and  candy as a regular thing and made only a rare treat.

I guess that shows I am capable of something but the compulsive/ binge monster is stronger than I am most of the time.

Thanks again.

      This link is from 2017 which means it has aged out of a site.  I got the link to open, it may be restricted in your area though.

      I've had days like that. I've also had days when the only reason I got dressed is because I needed to wash my pjs. Today is my one hoodie and a pair of boot-cut jeans. I haven't showered since Thursday and I feel gross. Definitely showering before bed tonight.   Hugs! 
    • ElizabethStar
      I'm still in my pj's. It's 5pm and there's no point in changing.

      Yes, Ma'am, it is wonderful. I think the tgAA meeting is one of the best groups I've ever attended. Literally international, "local" members from all over the US, ages from 18 to ... um ... me and maybe a few others, different takes on their Programs. I'm lovin' it, and I'm sitting here dressed for goin' online in company, j ust killin' time waiting for the 3pm PST/6pm where it's already getting dark. See ya' soon, I hope.  ~~Hugs comin' right back at'cha, from Lee~~

      Hi,   we went to the beach today.  See below.     We also went to the recycle center.  I spent the morning using my lawn tractor bagging leaves and pine needles then loading them into my utility trailer.  I like @Jandihave overdone it.  I had planned to do more tomorrow and take another load but I’m having second thoughts.   @KymmieL I am tired of living as two people also.  I am trying to work on that, sort of one friend or group of friends at a time.  It’s a slow process but it’s the best I’ve got.  good luck with the transfer.   Willow

      Oh HAPPY DANCE!  I just got invited to go on a ladies weekend to Savannah GA in May!  The group is mostly people I only know through social media, it's a group called Ladies Of Football which I was invited to when I came out on Facebook under my Miami Dolphins Superfan personna.  One of the girls even invited me to be her roommate for the weekend to reduce costs.  They all know my Trans status.  I can't wait. There will be about 20 of us crazy football fans from all over the country so we have a built in conversation starter .here are two ladies that I least have met from my football game days but that was from before coming out. My wife is super supportive and encouraged me to go. SHe does ladies retreats/getaways a couple times a year and knows I've always wanted to go to one.

      @Jackie C. I hope I get an ally judge, but if I don't, I'm going to look into legal aid for a low income lawyer that will be able to help me. Thank you for the advice.     XOXO Holly!
    • Jackie C.
      Happy St. Patrick's day!   Also happy second birthday. May your treatment be everything you hope it will be and more besides.   Hugs!

      I finally have an appointment with a VA endo..... March 17 blood work is in, letter if intent is in.... ready to start HRT!!!
    • Jackie C.
      The only real reason is that you've encountered a trans-hostile judge who has decided that they have something to prove today. I was fortunate in that my judge is an ally (and a friend of my attorney). While they're uncommon, they do exist. If you encounter one, you appeal the decision and try to get it overturned. For that, I'd get an attorney.   Hugs!
    • HollyNoel
      Thank you @Jackie C.. I'm going to go to that site and have a look around. Thank you so much.   @Charlize I really hope it goes that smooth, Ive no idea what to do if the judge says no. But then again why would they say no. I'm not changing my name for any other reason than to have a name that fits my better.   @LusciousTheLock I mean Tamsyn. I'm glad you got to sign your true name, I bet it felt great. I'm going to have to get new glasses also, I to am looking forward to getting my first female glasses. It's something that I've been thinking about for months. I'm not afraid of getting female glasses, I just have to get the funds together to afford them, that's why I haven't made the move yet.   @Jackie C., @Charlize, and Tamsyn, After I see that you all have done this, I know that I can take that step and legally and publicly be Holly. I know it's scary and not impossible.   Thank you girls XOXO Holly!
