My Favorite Posts From Last Week

Since the creation of this blog, I have started to follow a good number of blogs in the health/weight loss/mindful eating blogosphere. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite posts from last week because I enjoyed them enough to "star" them as favorites on my trusty iphone:

1. I loved this post from Tiffany at Weightlessly, who decided to bravely forgo anonymity and introduce herself to the world. Awesome.

2. Carrie at ED Bites wrote a post that really made me think. When I buy food, I always wonder what the people behind the counter are thinking. Carrie showed us what it is like to be on the other side of the counter:
It's just food.
That's all.
You don't have to feel guilty
or ashamed
for eating food you like.
There's nothing wrong.
I'm not judging you.
It's just dessert.
Enjoy it.
And then move on.
 3. The post Are Our Brains Hardwired to Hate our Bodies was pretty interesting.
“Women are actually engaging in an evaluation of who they are and whether they are worthwhile as a person,” Allen said. “Even though women might claim to be well adjusted and not care about body issues, subconsciously they might care.”

4. Last but not least, I thought Recovering Anorexic's post Recover Thoughts vs. Relapse Thoughts was very insightful. I am not sure I am ready to take a look at this now, but I am saving it for the future.


  1. Wow, thanks so much! That made me feel really great. Keep sharing the other gems, too...they're helpful!

  2. I just found your blog yesterday, and have been going back to read your jouney from the start. Thanks for sharing all the information; I find it very helpful.
