I love to bake, but I wasn’t able to enjoy it when I was in the middle of my eating disorder. Times have changed though! After much hard work, I am now baking and enjoying cake guilt-free!
My Mind My Body proudly presents the Intuitive Eating Video Series. This episode is called “Feel Your Fullness”.
Body dysmorphia was a huge part of my eating disorder and in this short video I share a little bit about what that looked like for me.
This is a guest blog post from Rhiannon, one of my Intuitive Eating For Beginners group moderators on Facebook. She has so much experience with intuitive eating that I want to share some of her wisdom.
When I think about reverting back to dieting and counting calories, it helps me to know that the “calories in, calories out” meme is a HUGE misinterpretation of the first law of thermodynamics. …

Learning to accept the number on the scale has taken a long time, but I have come to the realization that I am happier now with that new number than I ever was before. How is your relationship with the number on the scale?

Overeating used to make me feel so guilty. I now realize that my body is smart and will find balance if I overeat.

I want to think more positively, so I decided to create a list as a way to document the qualities that make me who I am. Check out what I wrote in “My ‘Why I Am Awesome‘ List!” and share why you are awesome too!
I have two personality traits that I know I need to keep in check. One is that I am a perfectionist and the other is that I care what people think of me. In this video, I share how these traits fueled my eating disorder and how I deal with them now.
