Categories: Honesty, How I told my husband I was a compulsive overeater, My Family and this Eating Disorder

Here is the final part of the letter, part III, that I gave to my husband a little over two years ago, when I realized I was a compulsive overeater and food addict. I do not eat in order to live, I live to eat. I think about food all the time, what I’m going […]

Once again, from the archives… Here is a continuation, part 2, of the letter I gave to my husband upon discovering that I was a compulsive overeater close to two years ago. I do eat because I’m hungry. In fact, as you may know, I don’t like feeling hungry. But there are many times that hunger […]

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m feeling really good for some reason. Good enough that I’m truly dabbling with the idea of not using my food scale and measuring cups for weighing and measuring, as well as not writing down my calories every day. I would be eating intuitively. This idea scared the crap […]

“Stop Overeating TODAY” Book Review & Giveaway, Part 1

Categories: Helpful Books

I was fortunate enough to be asked by author Camille Packer McConnell to read and review a book she published last year called “Stop Overeating TODAY! 33 Tips That Will Change Your Life“. McConell is a recovered anorexic, bulimic and overeater. She got tired of living her life eating disordered, so she retrained her thoughts […]

This post is on WATRD, but I’m running it as a cross-post here as well. I am reading this great book by Valerie Frankel called “Thin is the New Happy” and in it she gives a very interesting statistic about parents and daughters. (The book is about the author’s life; how growing up she was […]

I’m Getting Grounded, in a Good Way, Part 2

Categories: Day to Day Stuff

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 Need to Get Serious (A Little Rant)

Categories: Day to Day Stuff

I feel, especially after Friday night with the dinner/dessert buffet, that I really need to get serious again about dealing with this compulsive overeating of mine. My therapist totally rocks and we talk about tons of things that are very meaningful and I know it makes up the pieces of the puzzle that make me […]

Exercising and Dessert Buffets

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 […]
