I have a pain on the right side of my neck from turning so much when swimming.

I have a crave for carbs every morning around 10 a.m.

I also want chocolate ALL the TIME.

I'm reading Jillian Michaels book on hormones and metabolism

(which is actually really interesting and it's giving me a lot more insight on the stuff I knew already about how hormones and etc control your body.. and since I have a lot of the problems she mentions it's like someone is finally throwing me a light in the tunnel..)
and I'm getting mad at my old doctors who knew this stuff about me for YEARS and never bothered to tell me until ONE YEAR AGO (when I switched doctors).

It was a good day but all these things that are happening recently just make me want to scream
"Gahh! What is going on body?! Don't you WANT to get better? Stop sabotaging yourself!!"

Tell me I'm not the only one who feels this way sometimes..

You're not love. As for the neck pain try different strokes that don't emphasize the neck as much, like maybe holding your breath as you do a lap, or doing a back stroke. In the meantime roll up a towel, wet it a bit & put it in the microwave (hopefully it fits), then leave it around your neck for a while, it'll help it feel better. You can take allieve (sp?) in the meantime too, it will help relax the muscles in your neck =)

I feel ya! My problem is I dont wanna cook. So I justify eating out by going to subway or chipotle (my 2 favs ONLY) which I convince myself is "ok".

I need to cook at home and quit screwing things up.
