Weight re-gain. It can be positively daunting when you step on a scale one morning after months of eating out of control and realize that you’ve re-gained an enormous amount of weight. You know it didn’t happen overnight, but somehow you just couldn’t keep up with doing all the big and little steps associated with getting healthy. You’re so not alone. I know what that’s like.

How many times today:
have you thought about food, eating or being fat?
have you disrespected or cursed your body?
have you criticized or judged your own or someone else’s body?
have you blamed your body for feeling miserable?
Living in a fat-shaming society, it’s tempting to think that our bodies are the problem, but that’s not at all true.

Stop hating yourself for overeating. When you’re under stress, it’s almost impossible to listen to your body’s hunger signals. Overwhelming emotions like resentment, sadness and anger can fool our bodies into thinking that we’re always hungry. Left to roam wild, your stress response will keep you double fisting chocolates and cookies, popping them into your mouth faster than you can chew. This is your lizard brain’s survival way of keeping you safe, and when it gets triggered, it gets activated because it senses the presence of danger. In reality it’s really just the fear of facing whatever uncomfortable emotions pressed you to reach for the chocolate. Forgiving yourself and moving on would make the threat go away. As long as you shame yourself for giving into the temptation, you keep the cycle of guilt and gorge going. giving food more power over you than it deserves.Read More

Confronting Crisis and Chaos: When Food Calls Your Name and You Don’t Have the Strength to Say, “No”
What do you do when food calls your name and you just don’t have the strength to say “No?” It’s entirely up to you, but I’ve learned that trying to control my eating without confronting what I’m feeling, is a promise of pain. When facing an uphill struggle, it’s like being at the top of the roller coaster, there’s nowhere to go but down. If I’m in that vulnerable place, I willl eat and question the reasons why, later. As I tell my clients, “there is no shame in overeating. Sometimes it’s the best that you can do.Read More
