If you’ve read my blog before, then you know I talk a whole lot about Intuitive Eating (IE) and Health at Every Size (HAES). Maybe you’ve been introduced to these topics before and put them into practice every day, maybe you’ve only read about them on my blog, or maybe you’ve never heard of them before and just happened to find this post! Wherever you’re at, welcome- I’m so glad you found this blog post (it’s a good one 🙂 )! Read More
Have you guys ever seen the show, “I didn’t know I was pregnant” on TLC? Have you ever wondered “how in the heck did that person not know they were pregnant until the baby popped out?!” I have too. But as strange of a comparison as it is to make, that’s how I felt about my eating disorder (ED).

Oh the doctor’s office. I don’t know about you guys, but the doctor’s office is not my favorite place. Not because I’m scared of needles, seeing blood, or getting shots – but because of weight stigma.
Being in eating disorder recovery on a normal day isn’t easy, so add the holidays on top of that and you have yourself the perfect storm. But the holidays don’t have to be stormy sailing- they can be smoother than you think!

When I talk to people about Intuitive Eating (IE) they’re always quick to tell me, in one way or another, that “it sounds too good to be true” or that “it’s not for them”- which I can’t fault them for because I used to believe that too. But something we don’t seem to remember is that we’re all born intuitive eaters!
WAIT, WHAT?! Someone who doesn’t exercise? What’s she doing with her life? How is that possible? What’s wrong with her?
These might be a few of the questions running through your head right now, and don’t worry, I’ll answer them all in this post 🙂Read More

Before and afters. We see them all the time on social media. A side-by-side comparison of someone you may or may not know. The caption usually says something about how the person in the “before” photo didn’t have *X,Y,Z*. Then you see the “after” photo and the caption talks about how perfect and wonderful their life is now that they have the *X,Y,Z* they didn’t have before. To me, these types of photos are problematic. Now, bear in mind that when I was in my eating disorder I used to be the person who posted these types of photos weekly, and sometimes even more than once a week (read more about my struggle with an eating disorder and social media here, here and here). So what makes me have such a bone to pick with them?
