So the scale is gone....

Scale is gone and I feel lost.....

I came home and wanted to run and weigh myself. I knew right then I'm still very trapped in this illness. I do plan on getting some maintenance with the therapist but I also thought that I would continue to journal (blog) my eating disorder and my path to healing.

So many just don't understand the illness. "Just stopping" is no more easier than an addict not only going through detox but truly addressing the issues that lead them to using. I'm trying to do more than just detox (stopping the cycle of binging and purging) but to stop the psychosis. I'm so much better than I use to be but I know that if the scale says a certain number or if my waist line is looking chubby, I'm going to have issues. When my back went out, I gained about 8lbs and this has floored me. I need to be VERY honest. It has me a little wacky.

Understand, this isn't about finding myself attractive per se. The first thing people want to tell me is how they think I'm attractive. Its not about my face but my body. That's the best way I can explain it.

I'm going to continue to write about this. Maybe someone else can be helped by my journey.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service.

Thanks KP.


I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

The Ankh

Ankh : The Original Cross

The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.

The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …
