Wanna Hear a Story? Beach Bodies

I cancelled my life and went to the beach. My parent’s have a beach house that they just renovated. And I came down for the end of summer wanting a bit of nothingness while my family was still around even though I’ve never been much of a beach fan. My mom, dad, sister and cousins where…

Other People Can Be Fat, Just Not Me

Ever feel that before? Well, they look good with more weight, but I never could. I think it’s great that they accept themselves however they are, I just can’t. I think they’re beautiful, I wouldn’t be if I gained weight. I just look really bad with extra weight. And my little sister just said to me, “I have…

PCOS and The Fuck It Diet

You wouldn’t believe the amount of readers and clients I have who’ve said, “Well, I have this thing called PCOS, so I can’t actually let go and eat normally, because medically, I am supposed to keep my weight down.” Guess what? I “have PCOS too”, so, here is what I have to say on the…

Still Feel Like Letting Go is Unhealthy?

For years, my excuse for continuing dieting was that “I had to”. “I have to be healthy”. I believed freedom just wasn’t in the cards for me. I knew too much about polyunsaturated fats. I knew too much about how all our food was slowly killing us. And my hormones are messed up. I HAVE to…

How Do You Use Makeup?

I realized that I feel really, really ugly without makeup. And that is bullshit. And even if I were ‘really ugly’ without makeup, that is ok. But being “ugly”, and feeling ugly are two different things. In fact, being inherently ugly doesn’t need to even exist if we are realizing that beauty standards are subjective and morph…

If it Wasn’t Food, It’d be Something Else

You know what the crazy, wonderful, horrible thing about all this food and body image stuff is? IT IS A LIFE WAKE UP CALL. Wasting too much time in regret, worry, and shame is pointless in the end, because guess what? If this food thing wasn’t happening to you, something else would be. Life would…

Wanna Hear a Story? France, Diabetes Medicine, and Magnesium.

When I was in 11th grade, my doctor put me on diabetes medicine and told me not to get fat. That was their best attempt at “healing” hormonal imbalances (imbalances that were almost definitely caused by stress and exacerbated by restrictive-and-binge-eating disorder and large doses of self-loathing). I could go on for days about why American…

“But What If I Have Health Problems?”

Recovering from “nutso eating” (that is my official term for it now. yep.) brings up a lot of resistance and fear. Besides the deep fear of the social stigma against weight – along with any other personal prejudice, the second biggest resistance is “but … health!” (This is why I recommend the book Health At…

What’s it Like to Be Normal Around Food?

“What is the other side of this food thing like? What am I going towards while I’m trying to normalize food?” I get asked this question often enough, and a lovely member of my 6 Month Program just asked me too, so I figured this was a great post to create and share with everyone. I’m going…
