I'm a huge fan of ~INDYGIRL. She's so honest and real and smart...I could go on.
Anyway, she posted another great blog today, so I thought I'd share it along with my response (below link).
~INDYGIRL you are wise beyond your years...
You are figuring this thing out, piece-by-piece, and you are wonderful enough to share with us, honestly and with grace and style. Today, you are my hero.
My favorite line from your post is this one -
"Problem solve with yourself, like you are talking to a child or a best friend."
That one behavior, once people get used to it, is one of the most helpful that I have found to break the cycle of bingeing and emotional overeating. I admit that it felt sort of silly at first, but I kept at it (I called it "talking myself off of the ledge") and now it comes more naturally to me and I feel I deserve this kind of treatment, as I certainly did not get it while I was growing up.
I'm with you, INDYGIRL. We CAN do this!
