Continuing from yesterday…

Margarita from “Weightless” regularly features interviews with women who’ve recovered from disordered eating. After reading on her blog that she was looking for stories, I decided to share mine and feel honored that she would want to put my story on her awesome blog.

You can check out part two of the interview on “Weightless” today, click here.

If anyone else wants to share their story on Weightless, they can email Margarita at mtartakovsky@gmail.com. She is wonderful to work with.

    All I have to say is WOW! I just now read this full interview! This is so powerful….and the bracelets That is an awesome idea.. Do you make those? THAT would be a cool giveaway and inspirational motivation to keep moving forward!!! Or an even cooler gift to mark someone’s progress.

    Thank you so much for sharing your interview. I only attended 3 OA meetings and stopped. I am aware of 12 step programs and have worked the steps for my co-dependency and alanon behaviors but I can see how it applies to so many other areas of my life…

    This certainly is an ever evolving journey, isn’t it?

    thanks, julie. yup, my therapist and i brainstormed and came up with the bracelet idea to mark my time being binge-free. hmmm… perhaps that could be a giveaway in the future!

    yep, i think any kind of addiction can be helped with the cornerstone 12-step program.

    oh yes, an ever-evolving journey for sure!!!!

    As always, I am impressed with you candor and in awe of how far you have come. You can inspire many with your story.

    I loved this part – “food does not have magical powers. I am in control of the food. It is my choice as to whether or not I eat it.”

    well, if nothing else, i’m honest, huh? i don’t think you can really recover from this disease/addiction unless you are honest with yourself at a minimum.

    and yes, it took me a long time to get there, but i do now know that food is just plain ol’ food. it’s eaten in a matter of seconds, but the regrets, sick bloating and disgust can plague you for hours, days, weeks and years.

    Thank you! That really means a lot! I think everyone, regardless of the extent of their food or body-image issues, can learn to have a healthier relationship with food and themselves. I’m certainly learning along with everyone.

    Great minds think a like. I just wrote a post about how I am now eating guilt-free, that there is nothing I can have. And then I got to your interview 🙂 I’m glad you’re moving in the right direction towards being binge-free. I hate the “can’t have” list because it DOES set me up for failure.

    Keep it up. You’re making so much progress.

    Hi! I found you through Weightless a few days ago and I’m now hooked on your blog! It’s inspiring how long you’ve been binge free. I’ve decided to start acknowledging my binge-free time because of your bracelet post. Great idea!

    love2eatinpa Reply:

    definitely acknowledge the binge-free time! it gives you a little reward each day and makes it that much tougher to binge because you won’t want to start counting again from day one. =)
    good luck and thanks for stopping by, kristine!
