Better than enthusiasm

Sunday, May 17, 2015      4 comments

I sometimes get scared when I read someone comment how fired up she is. I know right now I'm shaky because some of the consequences that used to motivate me aren't there. What to do? I'll be coming up with some additions to my "reasons to eat sa... Read more

Compassion series

Sunday, April 26, 2015      5 comments

I'm considering getting this series for myself, but for anger and feelings of incompetence at work. (It occurred to me recently that I feel a lot worse about those than I do about my eating these days, and I think making progress there would act... Read more

A binge on its own is not failure

Wednesday, April 01, 2015      11 comments

I sometimes gets emails from a site called Can You Stay For Dinner? run by an incredible young woman who lost, I dunno, about half her weight. She wrote about it AND her love, cooking, and eventually was offered a book contract. Even after sever... Read more

What are we fighting? What are we giving up?

Monday, March 30, 2015      9 comments

I was browsing the Byron Katie site for other reasons, and came across this story. I have a seven year old son on the Autism spectrum. I have been obsessively working on my son to “cure” his condition-to the exclusion of everything. My ... Read more

emotional storms and the present moment

Wednesday, March 25, 2015      5 comments

Though I have thought in the past that I was learning to stay in the present moment, I find I was not doing it, and am regrouping to try again, as I don't have much faith in anything else right now. I see there is an extremely fine art to being ... Read more

a spiritual take on goals

Sunday, March 08, 2015      9 comments

A questioner asked my spiritual teacher today what to do about the resistance he was feeling towards some of the tasks this man has to do in order to expand in his professional life. He said he was excited about some new opportunities but was fe... Read more

anxiety and eating and living

Thursday, March 05, 2015      4 comments

This could be good news to some and bad news to others. I've been reading a book on treatment for anorexics, though my issue was bingeing. The doctor says at one point that most anorexics have a lot of anxiety. I know that anxiety can be a... Read more

No one IS her disorder

Monday, March 02, 2015      11 comments

I have been thinking about how people can get very caught up in the BED mentality and equate their habits with destiny. Just because I had a habit of frequently overeating, especially certain foods, does not mean I always will. I may be have to ... Read more

I started a meetup!

Saturday, February 07, 2015      13 comments

I've been toying with the idea of starting a meetup group to promote the eating principles I've adopted from the No S Diet and my research on slim cultures in the world. I finally took the plunge last Sunday, but haven't made any immediate plans... Read more

waiting it out

Friday, February 06, 2015      2 comments

Does anyone else sometimes (maybe often) feel as if she's waiting for something to happen? And not in an excited way. I often feel as if something is not complete, and it seems to be something beyond the everyday unfinished business of the day. ... Read more

accepting uncomfortable thoughts/events/emotions

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      3 comments

I posted this with a different name, and decided to post it with a more descriptive name so that it might come up for more people who may have an interest in such issues. I've said before that life stresses after managing bingeing are j... Read more

don't want to jinx it, but

Monday, January 26, 2015      10 comments

I've said before that life stresses after managing bingeing are just as intense, if not worse, than the urges to binge ever were. I'm not sorry I don't have to worry about bingeing like I used to, but if you are thinking all your problems are ov... Read more

break the binge habit

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      10 comments

Whatever else people think has to happen, there are basically two things people have to do: they have to have reasonable routines for eating, and they have to ignore the urges to binge. The two go hand in hand. If you don't have a routine in whi... Read more

not meant to discourage, but- need to get real

Tuesday, December 23, 2014      10 comments

I am going to post a link to something that many may find discouraging. It shows that even when adhering to a diet, average weight loss is often quite low for all the effort put in, especially when figuring that most people won't stick to tradit... Read more
