Yesterday I put a crock pot of lentil/sweet potato soup on while I ran around. Before we went out to a party I ate a big bowl. It really helped me avoid all the yummy food that I would have been tempted to eat. I did taste some of the sweets whi... Read more

Maladaptive...my new favorite word. So what does it mean? For me it's behavior that doesn't help me be flexible and achieve the life & health that I want. An example is using a candybar in the afternoon when I feel hungry & stressed. That is sim... Read more
