My Weight Loss Was My Worth

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you would have seen me post this week regarding a memory that came up from five years ago. A time when I felt like I was at the peak of my success. The FB memory that came up was a video clip of me on a big […]

Emotional Eating as a Non-Dieter

I speak with people quite often regarding emotional eating and emotional binge eating. They describe exactly what I have experienced as well – turning to food to deal with a certain emotion or situation, and then feeling totally out of control with that food at that moment. I used to get so focused on trying […]

Why We Should Stop Complimenting Weight Loss

Can we please stop praising and complimenting weight loss for a second? Telling someone how “great” they look since they lost weight.
