A binge on its own is not failure
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?
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
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
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
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
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!
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
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
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.

don't want to jinx it, but
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
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
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
gene expression and exercise
In my quest to inspire myself to exercise more consistently, I'm posting this link to an article about how the expression-not the chemical structure- of certain genes can be influenced by regular exercise. "Most of the genes in question are know... Read more
from a recent Beck newsletter
Reducing my random eating to almost nil- meaning leaving the door open so that it's not fanatical- has been instrumental in the continuing journey to cutting my ties with food. So I cherry pick the connections! Even though I very much don't agre... Read more
tiny house, messy garage, and not bingeing
This is a post I decided was too long for the 21-day streak on Living Binge Free. I'm also repeating myself to some degree, but I know I need the same message most days.
For various reasons, I've been very sporadic in posting, though I have... Read more
