wow thanks for the link to the other forum...im gonna check it out...it does seem like this one is very busy!!!
so i think my body image and nutrition issues are a direct result of my mother. i love my mom to pieces, but i think she has weight/eating issues as well. my mom is a little tiny bit taller than me and i think she might weigh right around 105-110...she looks tiny. people are constantly telling her how thin she looks, but she is CONSTANTLY dieting. and not just dieting like south beach diet. my mother typically eats one meal a day (and by meal, we mean half a turkey sandwich). if she's eaten one meal a day, she wont eat any others. she'll eat maybe a handful of peanuts or 2 m&ms or something like that, and maybe a slice of cheese with her evening tea, but thats it. not 5 small meals a day, not 3 small meals a day, but ONE small meal and some random snacks that are barely even snacks. i think this is borderline anorexic. the thing is, i could order a piece of chocolate cake, and if i didnt finish it, she sure as heck would...she loves chocolate!!! so i dont know. everytime anyone says anything to her, she just says "my eating habits are none of your business". i can give her some slack because she has major digestive system problems and really CANT eat as large of meals as most people, but she should be eating something and most of the time she doesnt. i come home and eat SB style and i feel like im stuffing my face compared to her...and sometimes that makes me eat less myself which is also bad...anyways...i digress...my unhealthy body image is probably a result of my mom always dieting....ugh. nonetheless, i am a little overweight and could stand to lose some weight, so im sticking to this whether i can "see" a difference or not!!!!!!

i went to indoor soccer today for exercise...lots of running around. i thought about going jogging, but didnt. i did walk around campus a lot. ive been feeling a little worn out, so maybe ill wait to double up on workouts when i have more energy in P2...i just dont eat enough in general to make up for the lack of energy.
