Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

There’s a Better Way!

There is an alternative way to live!

Today I choose to focus on self-care. I’ll mindfully choose healthy, appealing foods over the ones that leave me feeling like I’m in a fog.  Today I’ll follow through on my self-care commitment to get on my exercise bike, even if only for 5 minutes (just commiting to 5 minutes helps me get on the bike. I know once I’m on it I usually stay longer). Today I will focus on my own behavior vs. the behavior of others because mine is the only behavior I can control. Today I’ll look for opportunities to feel gratitude…

With time and practice (not perfection), I’ve come to trust that living the life I say I want tastes so much sweeter than anything I could ever binge on…

Do you have a plan for today? Would making a plan help you create a healthier, more peaceful day?

About Ellen Shuman

Ellen on the phone

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
