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 […]

What to do when you just feel so uncomfortable in your body right now

One thing that I hear a lot, and that I have also experienced myself, is people who say they just feel so uncomfortable in their body the size that it is right now. This is where that feeling of desperation to lose some weight can come from and where we are at when we end […]

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 […]

The Reason You Feel Out of Control Around Certain Foods

Do you ever feel like there are certain foods you just can’t be trusted around? Do you have certain foods that you just can’t keep in the house because you will just eat all of it feeling out of control around it? Are there times that you feel totally out of control around food? If […]

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.

I know that most people when pursuing weight loss, they do typically say their goal is to “be healthier“. Have you ever actually broken down what exactly “being healthier” means? Does it mean weighing […]

STARTING AN EXERCISE PROGRAM WITHOUT THE DIETING MENTALITY

I am starting a new exercise program tomorrow and I find the diet mentality is so strong within me particularly right now. I find myself thinking old dieting thoughts like “I should have one last hurrah tonight with pizza and chips and whatever else I will commit to not eating for the next X amount […]
