Weigh This Instead!

Life After Emotional & Binge Eating

Setting Self-Care Expectations

I’m at the BEDA; Binge Eating Disorder Association Convention (check out this Agenda!). I am bursting with excitement!

So much has happened in the few years since Chevese Turner created this remarkable organization. I am so proud to be a part of it and to serve as President this year!

This afternoon I attended a presentation by Amy Tuttle; one of our A Weigh Out Experts. Her topic was “BodyMind-Fullness”. I wish you all could have been there! (Maybe next year–we’ll be in Bethesda, MD, in March.)  Amy’s presentation was wonderful!  

I wanted to share one exercise she shared with us today. It’s designed to help us move forward, eliminate what’s in our way…one small step at time.

Try it, if you like. Identify one thing you’d like to accomplish this week, then apply these questions. See if it helps elimiate any blocks.


Setting Self-Care Intentions

1. This week, I want to risk/embody:


2. What will be hard about this or what will get in my way?


3. What will help me to do it anway?


Let us know if you try this and find it helps you move toward something you wish to do…
