"Kathleen, As we come out of diet culture, each of us may be in a different place. For me, I did gain some weight because in many ways I had starved my body of many things, not the least of which was satisfaction. It took months and months for me…"

Clothes Struggle

I haven’t been doing IE for very long, a few weeks. My body feels amazing and I have so much energy and less anxiety. However, my clothes don’t fit comfortably. I am bigger now than I have ever been, and it is uncomfortable to get dressed. I don’t have the money to buy all new clothes, and I honestly don’t want to.

Hi everyone, I'm Susie. I am 64 and have been on a diet since I was that's 50 years.  I initially read a book in the 80's appropriately called "Diets Don't Work" and was so excited about it's principle of not dieting!  I lost 25 pounds in 6 months with the approach, but have struggled since then.  I have joined Weight Watchers over 100 times, and started circling around from WW, then Atkins, then Whole 30, back to WW, then Atkins, etc... for at least the past 10 years, I haven't lost…See More
