OK, I’m 42 and I need to figure out what I want to be when I grow up =) so I’ve decided that I need to take a little break from writing and reading blogs. Everything is totally fine. I’m feeling good, just plugging along nicely with the intuitive eating (everything in moderation) and my […]

Our family went out to dinner on last night. When I go out to dinner with my husband, friends or family, I always order a salad, which I wrote about my reasoning behind why I do that here. Well, since I ate a salad for lunch yesterday, I decided to take, what probably seems ridiculous […]

So at three weeks and one day into Intuitive Eating, I got on the scale for the first time this past Sunday. I was very curious, wasn’t sure what to expect. I had started taking an estrogen supplement about a week before I stopped all my food weighing/measuring and calorie counting. I had read that […]

It’s been just under three weeks that I have been eating intuitively. To be honest, I think what I’m doing is more of a combination of intuitive eating/healthy eating/mindful eating. I’m not “totally going for it” as the intuitive eating books tell you. I think that is aimed more at people who have been dieting […]

Some people have emailed me privately and asked me how I figured out what my goal weight was and how I’ve been able to have maintained it for a year and a half now. I thought it might be good to answer in the form of a post. To be honest, I never had a […]

So I blathered on the other day about how on Saturday 3/27 I tried my first day at intuitive eating. It just so happened that was the same day as my nephew’s 3rd birthday party. Typically, going to my sister-in-laws house for any event fills me with anxiety. For some reason, I was still holding […]
