I consider myself lucky that despite all of my food craziness, working out has never been an issue for me. Since I was a kid and all through high school, I was a tomboy, always playing organized sports, and when that ended I would join a gym or just work out on my own, and […]

Up until now I’ve really only written about my 30+ year battle with compulsive eating. But I’m ready now to present another side of me, another compulsive behavior that I have — I go to the gym four days a week like clockwork and have to do deep breathing exercises if I’m not going to […]

I have made a very big decision for myself. I have decided to stop getting on the scale every morning, in an effort to take a small step to let go of the tight grip of control I try to keep on my eating and other things in my life. I have been getting on […]

I feel like I’m living in some kind of middle world between being a compulsive eater and a normal eater. I guess that is what being in recovery means, huh? Why do I feel this way? There are a handful of thoutghts  and actions I’ve been doing recently, that I really haven’t done before (throughout this entire 2-year […]

Food is the Only Thing I Can Control

I have been calorie counting for well over 20 years. During binges, the numbers I counted to were outrageously high. During good days, the numbers were on target. High or low, I have always felt the need to keep count. I understand that control is a big part of being a compulsive eater. For me, […]

Back in the spring, a dear friend told me about hypnotherapy. She told me that she knew of a woman who helped people to stop smoking and get over other addictions. Willing to do just about anything to help me with this eating disorder, I called the woman. Though she was retired, she was willing […]

The Day after our Holiday Party

Warning, there are graphic descriptions of decadent food, so beware!   So I went into the party with the mindset that no foods were forbidden and that it would be ok if I indulged a bit in the desserts.  I tried to allow myself that freedom and not be so restrictive.  I spoke to my […]

Hi and welcome to my first blog on my new platform! I can’t even begin to tell you how painfully frustrating it was to change my blog to be located on wordpress.com to wordpress.org.  The hosting site I used was really great. They seemingly handled everything, which was fabulous for a non-techy like me.  However, for some […]

I can’t believe it, two days ago I hit the 23-month abstinence mark.  For almost two years I have been binge-free.  I have kept off my weight loss for 14 months.  I am SO happy to be able to make both of those statements.  It has certainly been quite challenging, day-to-day, hour-to-hour, minute-to-minute, but  if I can do it, anybody can.
