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 […]

As most of you know, I have been dabbling a bit with Intuitive Eating. I have found some parts of it that work rather well for me in my recovery from compulsive overeating. Listening to my hunger and satiety cues, instead of just eating on a timed schedule has been a big change in my […]

I had such a great appointment with my therapist yesterday. I had sent him my last couple of blogs so he was prepared for me to come in ready to get down to business. As always, I left his office with not with what I thought I wanted, but instead, with what I needed. First […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

The one silver lining of this stomach virus that is working it’s way through my system is that it gave me insight into the world I’m teetering on the edge of – intuitive eating. I’ve had to listen to my body’s signals (even though my body is sick and it wasn’t “the real world” for […]

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 […]

We were supposed to go to a family Chanukah party today, but due to the snowstorm, it was cancelled.  I was planning on blogging about how I made out out this party, which is notorious for having really delish desserts.  So with that plan being foiled, I have decided to write about this great book […]
