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 […]

So to continue with where I left off yesterday explaining how my therapist helped to give me the grounding that I needed… Again, in no particular order… He said to focus on one event at a time and to not make the assumption that whatever happened last time, will happen again. I need to reign […]

I had “one of those days” yesterday. Even after being binge-free for over two years and feeling really good lately – making some big strides with not getting on the scale for a full month, listening to my hunger cues and my general awareness increasing, I had a rough day yesterday.
