My birthday was yesterday and the weekend included a little bit of a little bit of struggle, but mostly great stuff. The birthday celebration started Friday night when two dear friends took me out to dinner. There is nothing like getting out with a couple of friends and just relaxing while the husband takes care […]

So last night went well. I expected a full table of decadent treats at the condolence call but there was much less food than I expected. So that was a good thing – less choices. I felt very calm and relaxed. I was choice-ful prior to going and decided that I would taste/eat things that […]

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 […]

Well, there was some good and bad that happened last night at the dreaded dinner and dessert buffet. Here is how I scored myself: 1. I ate a good amount of challah. I LOVE the guts of any kind of bread – the doughy knots of a pretzel and best of all, the insides of […]

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 […]

Dealing with the "Forbidden Fruit"

How can I better frame/label a dessert buffet, whether it is at a gathering at someone’s house or at a function, so that it is not such a big anxiety-ridden deal, that I don’t look at dessert as “forbidden fruit”? What if at future occasions where there is going to be dessert buffets, before I even get there, gave myself permission to […]
