Are You A Self-Sacrificer?

Are You A Self-Sacrificer?

You may think that’s a funny question, but self-sacrificing, also known as people pleasing is contributing to your struggle with food. The more I dig into the inner work for myself, the more I can see how much of a people pleaser I’ve been over the years. I can also see how much this has truly affected me in a negative way. It’s caused me to hold onto negative energy for years, which for a long time has been the perfect opportunity to numb with food. Read More

6 Signs You Don’t Have A Healthy Relationship With Food

6 Signs You Don't Have A Healthy Relationship With Food

I didn’t know I had an unhealthy relationship with food for quite some time.  I followed what I read in the media and just thought I had trouble with willpower.  Things got worse and worse and I didn’t realize that I actually had a very unhealthy relationship with food.  When I did realize this, this is when I finally started looking for help.  My intention with this post is to help those of you that do have an unhealthy relationship with food but have yet to seek help, feel inspired to do so.

Why Food Is Not Your Problem

You struggle with eating healthy consistently or sticking to your diet. You feel like you’re always failing and just need to try harder. You don’t understand why you just can’t get your shit together and stick to your freakin eating plan. You think sticking to a diet is what will change your life because frankly when you lose weight you feel happier, you feel more comfortable in your body, you feel more outgoing and social. Truthfully though, food is not your problem and the reasons you think you feel better is all about mindset. Read More

Your Body Is Not Your Worth

Your Body Is Not Your Worth

I learned at a young age, like many of us do, that my body was my worth. Society and the media portray this message loud and clear. Even family members who have been taught the same thing can pass this message on to us. This can lead down a slippery slope of seeking external validation from others, and the problem is we will never feel good enough until we accept ourselves first. Read More

I Experienced My First Hater

I Experienced My First Hater

I experienced my first hater last month. Someone who completely disagreed with what I was saying, actually missed the point of my post and told me some interesting things, including that I was addicted to animal products (which isn’t a thing, just in case you were wondering) and processed foods, promoting poisons and actually feeding “the problem,” not helping it.

4 Things I Learned From Overexercising & Undereating

So many women fall prey to the eat less and exercise more message that tells us we’ll lose weight and get the “body of our dreams.”  I put body of our dreams in quotations because well, that’s subjective plus screw off already with the messages telling us our worth is linked to our physical body.  In this mindbodygreen article I share 4 Things I Learned From Overexercising & Undereating.

Why The Comment, “You Look Skinny” Is No Longer A Compliment To Me

Why The Comment, You Look Skinny Is No Longer A Compliment To Me

It used to make me feel so good about myself when people told me I was thin or looked skinny. It boosted my self-esteem when people praised me on my physique and fitness level. During that time I based my worth on what my body looked like, the number on the scale and how “fit” I was. Read More

Why You Can't Have Healthy, Happy Relationships Without Self-Love

During my early 20’s I ended up in a 5 year relationship that taught me many things.  The second half of my 20’s I avoided dating and decided to work on myself because of the many things I learned in that relationship.  I was struggling with body image and disordered eating and felt so uncomfortable in my body.  I learned many things the hard way and share in my Tiny Buddha article Why We Can’t Have Healthy, Happy Relationships Without Self-Love.

Real Women Have Bodies, But They Don't Define Who We Are

I often see memes about who real women are. “Real women have curves” or “Real women are strong” are just a couple of them. Early on in my recovery days I thought these types of memes were awesome. They helped me accept my no longer skinny but curvier and stronger body.  The problem is, they still focus on our physical bodies.  Real women have bodies, but they don’t define who we are.

4 Tips To Help You Stop Binge Eating

I developed anorexia in high school after a number of losses.  It was a way to find control as everything else around me felt out of control.  Shortly after high school I moved to another city with my family, as I was enrolled to take my EMR (emergency medical responder) there.  I began to struggle with binge eating and felt completely out of control again.   Read More
