I can't recommend "Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight" by Linda Bacon, PhD enough! Tons of scientific information and studies with the references to back it up as well as an IE program included at the end.
Here is my thing -- I am not a binge eater, I am not a stress eater, I am not an emotional eater. A lot of what I am struggling with is simply body image. I do think I have a good handle on the eating. I just did a blog about humility and seeing myself for what it is. It is a tough thing, but I am forcing myself to realize that I just had a baby. I am NOT going to pop right back into my size 8's. I am breastfeeding and chances are I will NOT go back until I am finished wiht that (this is baby #4 and has been the pattern with all of them). I went jeans shopping yesterday and left empty handed because I couldn't fit into the sizes I thought I should be wearing. Dumb, I know. I need to dress for how I am now, not what I perceive myself to be. Make sense?
I eat good. I eat healthy. I don't count calories. I am struggling with not being able to exercise much because of a new baby and the demands that go along with that. I do think that is part of it.
I do think I am going to download this book for my Kindle, I read the sample and I liked it.
