Sometimes you just gotta YSAE TI EKAT.

If you have a Mac you know why the letters on my shirt are backward in the pic. =P

I wanted to give you guys an update on my intuitive eating, etc.  Things are going pretty well with it-- which is awesome!

We traveled to Illinois this weekend and spent the weekend with J's family.  We went out to eat a couple of times and we had ice cream for J's brother's birthday.  I ate when I was hungry, and didn't eat when I wasn't.  Imagine that!  I felt good about myself.  Food and my body were not the #1 thing on my mind.  Whoa.

I've been eating sensibly, but on Monday I was craving fatty foods all day.  So I asked J to bring home some fried chicken (which I never eat! lol), and we had chicken, a little pizza, and ice cream for dessert.  I was very content.  Yesterday I ate sensibly again because I didn't have any cravings in particular.

I haven't weighed myself since last week because 1.  I chucked my scale years ago.  And 2.  I don't really care.  I'm fitting into all my clothes the way I want to be.  As I said in my last post, I've lost most of the unwanted muscle mass I'd gained from lifting since I haven't been to the gym in the last three weeks (and I haven't lifted in 4 weeks).   I am feeling very much at ease about my weight, my body, and my overall body image. 

But, beyond that, I'm happy with my state of mind right now.  I haven't been obsessing over food, tugging at my skin, or worrying about my next workout.  Simply said, I'm taking it easy.  However, I do need to get back to the gym at least a couple of times a week.  I miss it!  But the lazy bug has taken over, and it's so so so cold outside (right now it's 24 deg F, and that's the highest it's been in the last few days!).

Anyway, I'm sending you all lots of hugs, and of course I'm keeping up with all of your lovely posts.

Remember, YSAE TI EKAT! :)


  1. I'm so happy for you!

    Watching you take these huge steps in recovery and now your so healthy... I'm so very inspired by you and even more dedicated to achieving my own FULL and COMPLETE recovery!

    Thank you!


  2. Yayy!(: I'm so glad to hear that you're doing great, and having no need to go to the gym at all. That's amazing!

  3. Ahhhh...felt so good to read.
    I think we need to abandon the belief that when left to our own devices we will go crazy...when I gave up on a meal plan so to speak I realized that any sort of plan or diet or anything just inspires me to get wonky.
    I love how you can just relax. Feel like you need fat. Eat fried chicken. Then maybe the next day you have no fat...but you don't "freak out about making your exchanges" you know what I mean?
    Feels so mch more normal!!!

  4. I love following your blog! You are doing great :) I love where you say you don't care about how much you weigh. To me, that sounds like a breaking point.

    You are doing so well! Hope you have a great Christmas!

  5. Yay for this post!!!!! :D

    Keep up with great work that you've been doing lately!!! <3
