Sugar Cravings, Carbs and Preparing for Thanksgving

Thanksgiving is coming, and I'm thinking about you.  If you've got an eating disorder it's time to prepare for a day of food obsession, food love, food cooking, food leftovers and food conversation.  I rarely discuss specific foods on this site but the blog, "Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder?" caught my eye tonight, especially the article,  "Come back to carbs."

This article got me thinking, so it's the best kind of article for me.  Are you caught in an absurd situation where you restrict good carbs (like grains) only to crave and or actually binge on bad carbs (like sugar or fast sugar producing edibles)? 

How Affirmations Work

Does the thought of repeating affirmations feel uncomfortable to you?  Do you feel that it's pointless to work with affirmations because you just don't believe that the positive qualities they hold apply to you and that you could never believe them?  If you feel or think this, then please read on and learn how affirmations work.

How to Benefit from Healing Your Hungry Heart

I'm getting many letters from people who have read or are reading my book, Healing Your Hungry Heart: recovering from your eating disorder.  I'm glad to learn that Healing Your Hungry Heart is generating enthusiasm.  However, I'm concerned when I hear someone say that they couldn't put it down.

Child Trying To Save Her Mother

I just got my heart broken again. A young girl wanted to connect with me on Facebook. When I got the request and saw that young sweet face I wrote, asking her age.

She told me she was 12 and worried about her mother. Her mother has an eating disorder, will not accept help, and cries a lot.
