One day after he died this past Christmas, I saw a video entitled, “George Michael Became Recluse Because He Hated the Way He Looked.” Shocked and stunned that such a physically attractive man would feel so insecure about his appearance, that began a quest for me to explore more about his life. What I discovered about him, his brilliant talent as a singer/songwriter and his dedication to his craft, inspired me to pull myself out of my own depression. I’m heartbroken to know that he lived such a pained and tortured life. But I’m so grateful to him for inspiring me to embrace more of my own life and to continue my writing to give voice to my gifts.Read More
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?

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
