Good Morning from California (Bay Area)

Hello Everyone,  The funniest thing happened when I went to "join" this site - I had already joined at some point because my email was in use.  So I guessed at my password and here I am.  It must have been years ago that I joined originally.  Anyway, I joined WW for the 20th time about two weeks ago and haven't gone back.  Once again I am out the money, feel guilty and am no thinner.  I use food for comfort.  Use food to punish myself and I eat all time when not even hungry.  And I feel guilty,…See More

"I'm glad you're here. I spent the past 45 years on the diet yo yo merry-go-round. I don't know how old you are, but I hope you don't spend 45 years like I did! This helped me put weight loss on the back burner: When I was very…"

So tired...

Hi! I'm new here. I just started reading the book last night. I've tried something similar before, but fell back into the diet trap. I'm tired of going from one thing to the next. I'm tired of reading books about this issue. I'm tired of spending so much energy on wishing things were different.When the book talks about putting weight loss on the back burner... I just have no idea how to do that. I bet I've thought about it at least 1,000 times just today and it's only 2pm.Ok, I'm going to go…See More

takoda replied to takoda's discussion How do you rid yourself of guilt
"Katcha, Thank you for your response.  Your point number 2 really hits home with me.  Would I ever deny my daughter or make my daughter (5 years old) feel guilty for what she wants to eat, when she wants to eat, and how much? …"
Zoe Johnson replied to takoda's discussion How do you rid yourself of guilt
"Hi Takoda! I'm new here too, so we're newbies together! I think what you've hit on, that grey area between "giving yourself permission" and yet still feeling guilt for consuming certain foods is where most people get stuck.…"

"I too have been noticing this happening to me recently.  I'll set out to eat a few cookies, slowly eat the first one, and then look at the others and wonder if I want them.  Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't, and either way I…"

How do you rid yourself of guilt

I'd like to introduce myself.  I've kept a lot of my feelings inside so this may be a bit long for an introduction.First this is the first ever online community I have joined.  I'm a little overwhelmed by all the stages, steps and principles outlined in the intuitive eating book.  I can't offered to see a professional nutritionist and thought joining the online community would give me the support I need.My issues with food, I have come to realize, comes from how I was raised - clean your…See More
