  • A Better New Year's Resolution - TUNE IN to Self-Care!

  • Insanity is Doing the Same Thing Over and Over ...

A Better New Year's Resolution - TUNE IN to Self-Care!

This New Year, choose to tune in to self-care and remembering that you deserve to be on the list of those who deserve your care.

I would like you to imagine some time in your life when you were in charge of taking care of a child.  You may have had full time responsibility, or you may have been tending this little one for the day. 

Would you let the little one in your care:

  • Stay up late at night even when you know exhaustion will follow tomorrow?
  • Sit on the couch all day staring at the TV or the computer without moving?
  • Remain isolated without playing with friends for long periods of time?
  • Eat ‘entertainment foods’ all day without enough fruits and vegetables?
  • Avoid drinking water, in order to avoid getting up to go to the bathroom?

Of course you would not do these things to a little one in your care! 

You would make sure that the little one ate well and drank enough water, got the rest they needed, ran around and played enough so they wouldn’t be fidgety, and enjoyed a stimulating environment (including play time with friends).

What if you were just in charge of watching a little dog for the week?  Yes, even the dog would get the food he needed, plenty of water, and regular exercise in the yard or walking.  The dog would be given things to play with so it wouldn’t get bored and get into trouble.  You would give the dog attention and affection.

Now, think about the way you treat yourself.  Do you treat yourself as well as you would a little one who is in your care?  You may find it valuable to picture a little one inside of you.  This little one has the same color hair as you have.  His/her little face has big round eyes the same color as yours.  This little one is probably even cute and chubby like a cherub (You know the kind.  You just feel like hugging them and squeezing their fat little thighs.  I digress.  I like cherubs.)  Well, now that you have pictured this little one inside of you, when you make choices on how to take care of yourself, how to talk to yourself, and what to think about yourself, consider the little one inside. 

Take care of the little one inside of you and give him/her all the things necessary to thrive and feel well.  Eat healthy foods because they make you feel better.  Enjoy entertainment foods occasionally, but primarily rely on the life you are building for yourself to really entertain you.  Give yourself the water your body needs, even if this adds extra moving around to your day with trips to the bathroom.  Enjoy your friends.  Whether you engage people face to face, on the phone, or in a chat room, find people with whom you feel accepted and connected.  And finally get out and play!  Move your body in some way that you enjoy.  If you don’t know what that is, take action to discover what it might be. 

These are the basic needs of all creatures big and small. 

These are your basic needs. 

Life may have taught you to ignore your own needs.

It may be helpful to remember the little one inside of YOU

and take care of yourself as well as you would take care of

a little one in your care.


You deserve it.


Insanity is doing the same thing over and over…
and expecting different results.

Don’t do it again.  This time, do something different. 



    This is a process where you learn to:

    • Eat when hungry & stop when satisfied.
    • Meet emotional needs without using food.
    • END BINGE EATING & improve nutrition.


It’s a bit shocking ... but you know it  IS true..

“The first day of your next diet brings you one day closer to your next BINGE.” 


This year, if you want to feel better about your body and inprove your health, do something different.  Make peace with food, build your healthy lifestyle, and learn to appreciate your body.

Starting Tuesday, January 10th, at 9:15p.m. E.S.T., we will have a FREE Healthy Living Chat. 
Please email me if you plan to join us.  This will help me set up the chat better.
