my next baby step

Background: I started Weight Watchers (WW) years ago and really got into the diet mentality.  I "quit" WW about a year after I started, but I still counted points (for those of you who never did WW, points are essentially calories).Me now: I no longer count points, but I still went onto their message boards.  Mostly it was to the vegetarian board, but I still looked at other forums.  Well, this week was a tough one and I noticed myself slipping into old habits of restricting. I'm not proud of…See More

Totally believing but with concerns...

Hey guys!I've been trying for a while to find a concept other than a new diet to work with my food issues. I started looking for a "program" that had to do with mindful eating as I figured that would help as I seem to zoom out many times when it comes to food but accidently stumbling across IE and the book has made me feel like I hit jackpot. Almost. All the principles makes sense to me and I totally see it working but it raises many quiestions on - how in the world will I make my mind really…See More

what weight loss can never solve

Thought in line with our recent discussion about weight loss desire that this was a though-provoking quote from Geneen Roth.“Weight loss does not make people happy. Or peaceful. Being thin does not address the emptiness that has no shape or weight or name. Even a wildly successful diet is a colossal failure because inside the new body is the same sinking heart.”― Geneen RothSee More
