Hurrah! Hiking poles today intend of a cane. ‘Nuff said.
I’m filled with awe and gratitude as I exchange my cane for hiking poles once again and ascend my beloved mountain to celebrate the 50th episode of Compulsive Overeating Diary. I reminisce about where I began on this experiment and ponder where I’m going. I think about all of the blessings that have come my way from interacting with you, the brave companions. Cheryl calls the bravery hotline to support Brandi and earns her spot on today’s Bravery Report. A shout-out to new listener and brave companion, Maria from the UK, comments from Michelle, Stéfanie and Cheryl and an update about Alva the English teacher from France. Another big thank-you to Josh Woodward for his inspiring song, I’m letting go.
Trail marker at the beginning of the day. The sunrise marks the beginning too of my hopeful journey to record from the mountain.
The trail upward. Each step of the way I asked my body if I could continue. Really unique and good practice to get back in touch with the part of me I have hated, ignored and mistreated. Body, thank you for sticking with me. I love you!
Here are my 50th episode prayer rocks. For me, it’s a memory, a wish and a released thought into the universe. I place them then think on them. Today I was struck by the many shapes and directions, representing the various brave companions and their individuality – even as we are unified, as the rocks are.
I’m thrilled to be eating my traditional pre-recording Granny Smith apple at my next to top Zen place. After my recent back trouble, I doubted I would be able to do my 50th episode from my beloved mountain.

50 Good Things About Life
from the blog, Just a Lemon. It is fun to read this person’s positive list of 50 good things in life. Some you may agree with, some not, but it is a very cool idea. I’m inspired to try it myself and create a 50 good things list! How about you?
