I use to dread this time of year
All of these occasions involved food that I “wasn’t allowed”, depending on what new program I had happened to be on at the time.
There were even a few years where I didn’t buy Halloween candy because the temptation was too much.
My heart would race all night with that bowl of candy sitting out. And if I did give in... guilt hit me like a tidal wave.
***𝘤𝘶𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳 𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘤***
As soon as I gave in, that inner critic would be in my ear:
-you’re so weak!
-and you wonder why you can’t lose weight.
-give you already, you were obviously meant to be fat.
And then the narrative switched to:
Just one more.. I’ll get back on track tomorrow.
This would usually last a few days until all of the Halloween candy was gone.

There is a whole world out there!
Beyond dieting, tracking calories, & points.
A world where food can actually be enjoyed without guilt & shame.
A world without binging.
It is intimidating in the beginning of your undiet journey because because everyone around us seems to be on a diet, but it can be done with proper support in place.
If you’re ready to give up yoyo dieting for good, there are a few spots left to work with me one on one.
And I can not stress the value in having someone in your corner during the holiday season, because this time of year can be so challenging.
