I am coming up on the one-year anniversary of my most embarrassing food moment (in recent memory). Last early May, though I had not binged for over a year, here is what happened… While at an outdoor carnival at my children’s elementary school, they were serving pizza for dinner as well as a myriad of […]

Our family went out to dinner on last night. When I go out to dinner with my husband, friends or family, I always order a salad, which I wrote about my reasoning behind why I do that here. Well, since I ate a salad for lunch yesterday, I decided to take, what probably seems ridiculous […]

This is a cross post on We are the Real Deal today. I recently read this great article by Kristin Armstrong (ex of famous cycler Lance Armstrong) in the May edition of Runner’s World magazine.

So at three weeks and one day into Intuitive Eating, I got on the scale for the first time this past Sunday. I was very curious, wasn’t sure what to expect.

A few of you have written to me privately asking about my binge-free bracelet so I thought I would write a post about it. This bracelet came out of a brainstorm session between me and my first therapist in January of 2009. It was when I first realized I had an eating disorder (after 30 […]

I’m still struggling a bit with a certain aspect of my hunger cues. I guess all the bingeing I’ve done all these years has my system thrown off a bit. Like most people, I’m assuming, I feel hungry when I wake up in the morning. The problem is that I feel different types of hunger […]

It’s been just under three weeks that I have been eating intuitively. To be honest, I think what I’m doing is more of a combination of intuitive eating/healthy eating/mindful eating. I’m not “totally going for it” as the intuitive eating books tell you. I think that is aimed more at people who have been dieting […]
