Vacation, 32 Months Binge-Free and a Great Book

I hope everyone had a great labor day weekend! Vacation was great. We had beautiful, sunny, beach weather, the kids had a blast looking for shells and going in the ocean (when the lifeguards said it wasn’t too rough) and it was relaxing. I was...

Intuitive Eating and Triathlon Training

This past Saturday marked 11 weeks of intuitive eating and I’m pretty happy about that. However, there is a bit of a wrench thrown in there with the triathlon training… as often happens when you workout a lot/differently, you sometimes lo...

Checking In

I have been enjoying my break for the past week. I am enjoying time with myself and my family as I try to sort through some things, but I definitely wanted to check in with you. Saturday will make seven weeks of no weighing/measuring of food or count...

Focusing on the Positive

I’m borrowing this idea from Holly (thanks, girl!) who posted these questions the other day. I thought it might be fun to post. 1) What physical features do you love about yourself? I think I have nice arms and shoulders. I’m lucky that I...

I Took Another Intuitive Eating Step

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 t...

Intuitive Eating Update

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...

Amazing Book – “goodbye ed, hello me”

This is a cross post that is also running on We Are the Real Deal. I just got done reading a really great book about recovering from an eating disorder and learning to fall back in love with life and yourself. It’s called “goodbye ed, hel...

Thoughts on Goal Weight

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 nev...

I’m Getting Grounded, in a Good Way, Part 1

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, wi...

I Need to Get Serious (A Little Rant)

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...

Dessert Buffet Report Card

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...

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...

My “Bag of Tricks”

So yesterday I wrote about how on Saturday I almost blew my over 2 year binge-free abstinence, here. I wasn’t even quite sure why I was so into eating or why I could never get satiated. My stomach was like a bottomless pit. The compulsive e...

I Almost Blew It

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 genera...

How I Remain Binge-Free

It’s been over two years now that I’ve been abstinent / binge-free. Though I’m in recovery from 30+ years of compulsive eating and binging, I do still have my struggles. However, there are some things that I have learned along th...

Two Years Binge-Free!!!

I have tears in my eyes as I’m typing this, my screen is all blurry. Today I woke up, even after going out to dinner and dancing with my husband last night, as being someone who hasn’t binged in two years. When I came downstairs this mor...

Reflections on Two Years of Abstinence

It feels pretty surreal to write this, but in three days, Jan 1, I will be two years binge-free. Two whole years. In addition, I will have maintained my weight loss for just about 15 months. Wow. It’s interesting that while there have been so...
