"Very inspiring! I can see a lot of myself in what you are saying.  I am realizing that with both body image AND earing habits I am holding onto old habits that need to be changed.  Thanks!"

Graphxgrl replied to Mary's discussion Underlying issues
"VERY true!  I think we can also form patterns with out food that linger even after we have dealt with the emotional issues.  It's almost like we need to get up to speed with our own progress."

"GREAT advice Mary.  I don't feel like I am ever technically binging, but I almost never sit down for a full meal without distraction...and I do love to snack.  I've so long intertwined food with entertainment like TV or movies…"

Elizabeth Escalante replied to Erin's discussion The 5 hour rule
"Intuitive eating rules: 1. There are no rules. Don't fall in the "Only eat when your hungry and stop when your full" diet. Intuitive eating is not a black or white, all or nothing lifestyle. There is no right way to eat. Just eat…"

Elizabeth Escalante replied to takoda's discussion How do you rid yourself of guilt
