When You Can’t Get What You Really Want, You Eat

When dysregulated eaters think they can’t get what they really want in life, they too often turn to food. They’re not hungry (not a smidge!), but end up on a mission to find something edible to satisfy them. And heaven help anyone who gets in their way. I know just what this process is like […]

What’s Your Normal?

If you’re being emotionally, verbally, physically or sexually abused by your partner, you’ll likely have difficulty becoming a “normal” eater because of what you accept as “normal” in your domestic life. Several points about such misperceived normalcy were made in Time magazine (9/22/14) after the release of the video of NFL player Ray Rice beating […]

How to love your body. No Seriously!!

I see many different lists of how to love your body and improve body image. These lists are often filled with beautiful affirmations and postivity however for many people struggling with negative body image or deep insecurities with their body, affirmations are not enough. I created a simple list of ways to start to challenge […]

Don’t Tell Yourself You Don’t Care Around Food

Do you know the three words you never want to say to yourself when you’re faced with eating decisions? “I don’t care.” Say them and you know what food- and body-abusing road you’re heading down. The fact is, you do care. You care, you care, you care! Not long ago, I was privy to observing […]

The Invisible Line: Finding your voice and setting your boundaries

Boundaries and assertiveness for many people  these words bring upon anxiety, fear and represent a negative task. For many people the ability to stand up for their inner needs and wants can be very difficult. Often times many people I encounter hold many of their emotions and thoughts within themselves. I know especially for the […]

Trigger Warning:  Discussion of Eating Disorders and Halloween Candy Nobody is born with a negative body image nor did it develop over night. So assuming we can instantaneously fix it just because we decide  to feel better about our bodies is a bit unrealistic. In short, it takes PRACTICE!  We must practice setting limits on […]

Announcing Binge Eating Disorder Week, May 27-31

Hopeless…desperate…defeated…disgusted…guilty…ashamed These are the words with which I open an article I wrote explaining binge eating disorder (BED), as part of the upcoming BED week, May 27-31. These words describe the difficult feelings that plague those who struggle with BED.  And the feelings can go much deeper than that, to increase risk for depression and […]

Binge Eating Disorder Help & Hope

The title of my post today is a bit redundant.  Help is hope for people who struggle with binge eating disorder, and hope is help, too.   I can get caught up in the semantics of things very easily but this time, I think it’s worth it.  😉 What I really want to talk about is […]

Hiding within yourself

Many people with eating disorders feel ashamed and embarrassed.  People are calling and texting you to go out, do things, and socialize.  Have you called them back?  Yes.  Have you told them you’d meet up with them?  Yes. But… You cancel at the last minute.  Why? “I just can’t go” you say to yourself.  “No […]

Hey, What’s Up With the Lying?

Ok, so you have an eating disorder.  Everyday you are consumed with food thoughts, numbers, calories, and negative thinking.  On top of this you have developed a habit of lying to others about small, medium, and big things.  Even some things that are important, like your health.  Do you like to lie?  No.  Most people […]
