I was interviewed for the "Quit Binge Eating Podcast" by Alen Standish- blog link is here
Alen is having conversations with friends series. I can really relate to many of the things that Alen talks about and what Christina talks about in her episode.
In a few weeks, you'll be able to listen to me talk about my story in my own squeaky/nasal voice for 20-30 minutes. I'll link to it from my blog.
The podcast was scary fun- fun to record (google hang out), but also scary to get real about telling my food/emotional eating history. Fun to be able to talk about what works. I know it's often said that transparency is the new currency. And, I know by telling our stories, we can help others. I so know I'm not alone in this.
Alen has created a free, web based app called Binge Buddy . Check it out if you find yourself eating off the rails for whatever reason.
I'm set up for another podcast in later April, too. I'll blog about that, too! It's so fun to learn new things. And, podcasts keep me motivated, learning and growing.
1. Finding a safe environment to talk.
2. Getting help and support from outside myself- friends, counseling.
3. Getting off trigger foods - processed sugar/wheat/grains/salty snacks
What didn't work
1. Talking to people who were not helping me.
2. Not seeking out support when I knew I needed it.
3. Eating junk food because others told me I would binge without them!!?? I call baloney on that in my experience. I accept that for others reality, but the reverse is true for me.
