A slow progression

I am bipolar and a recovering anorexic made fat by both side effects of bipolar medication, and a damaged thyroid caused by Lithium. Living single and alone, its not only a challenge to cook for one, but it’s a daily battle to eat a nutritious, balanced diet. Or even just to eat at all. I transition between starvation, comfort and binge eating. Everything to extreme, and nothing balanced. This is my weekly journal documenting my eating patterns, moods and thoughts. An attempt to keep account of my successes and failures with food.

Ohmygod!  I put sweet corn in the oven and baked with butter.  Never knew I had it in me.  Probably going to be feasting on this for a few nights

      1. lololol! And I’d change mine to Jam so when people have to introduce us at social function, they have to announce the arrival of…. Ms Peanut Butter and her companion Ms Jammmmmm! And then people can say ‘hey, where’d Peanut Butter and Jam go?’ I also thought of a name for you if you want to go ‘GANGSTA’ – Mz Butta (and then throw your arms around and make pistol fingers)

      2. I could never pull off gangsta — I’m too old and white. I look more like butter. And if you were to take a magnifying glass to my blood, you would see little bits of butter floating around in it. πŸ™‚
