Ponder this…

4 Jun



Can you imagine living with your eating disorder for the next 10 years? Considering many of us out there have probably lived with it for the previous 10 years+, I can confidently say, “HAIL NO.”

Why ARE you afraid to change? Why am I? THAT, is the question…

Outlasting the fog

21 Dec

An excerpt from “The Book of Awakening” by Mark Nepo.

“…It reminds me of a man who built a home on a cliff by the sea, only to have a month-long fog roll in. He cursed the place and moved away, but a week after he’d gone, the fog cleared. Being human, we all have fogs roll in around our heart, and often, our lives depend on the quiet courage to wait for them to clear.”


Wait for the fog to clear. ❤

Remember: Every hour you restrict, ED gets stronger and stronger. You, however, do NOT get weaker. Be brave. Food strengthens you and weakens ED.

The first bite is always the hardest. Push through the fear, as you think of all the good ED has brought to your life…OH WAIT. Trick question. There is NOTHING good. Only awful. Remember that.

Fight for your life. Food is not the enemy– your ED is. And like Jenni Schafer said, “Make no mistake, your eating disorder will kill you if given the chance.” Don’t give it the chance. Find your courage.

Your worth is capped

26 Sep

Your worth cannot be changed. Doing good things, being successful, does not make you ‘better’ or worthier. Doing bad things, or being unsuccessful, does not make you ‘bad’ or less worthy.

You are a human. You are alive. Your worth cannot be changed by anything you do, think, say, feel, or what you look like.

Until you truly integrate this, you’ll be running on the treadmill, grasping for reassurance, reinforcement, and acclaim.

You can’t become any worthier. You just are.

Much love and health,

Good old Albert

“Why, therefore, upset yourself about it (irrational thought X), when you will ultimately face it anyway, and when worrying about it may well cause you- until the age of 95!- needless pain?” ~ Albert Ellis, Ph.D.

What irrational thought are you constantly disturbing yourself with? Because you should probably stop.

Much love and health,
