Dear Monica…

You had a snacky day. It happens. Brush your teeth so you don’t make it worse and close the kitchen. It’s not the end of the world. You’re okay.

    such a simple statement “its not the end of the world” but soooo true. I often forget that simple statement and start getting frustrated with myself (i have been way tooo snacky lately) so this was a good reminder to myself that I can still get back on track! thank you!

    Dear Monica,
    I’m in an never-ending state of trying to recover from an eating disorder. You’re blog reminded me to put up my Intuitive Eating book that my old nutritionist had me buy a couple of years ago… I never read the whole thing…because…well I guess because I just didn’t want to really get better then. Well I picked it up after reading your blog and it has been so helpful! It is really helping to free me. Thank you for being so honest on your blog, and I want you to know that it really makes a difference in people’s lives to have somewhere share their similar experiences. You’re snacky day reminded me that it’s normal and ok for me to have snacky days too!

      Hi Katie!

      I saw your reply to Monica and was compelled to respond as I’ve been fighting an ED for most of young adulthood. I thought I finally got a grip on it, but lapsed in old behaviors. The thing that helped me the most WAS intuitive eating, listening to my body, relaxing and not worrying about weight. Have you read the book Woman Food and God by Janeen Roth? It is a game changer! I highly recommend it ! :)
      If you have some time, check out my blog as well :) perhaps it will help you too!
      Hang in there!

    Hi Monica!

    I’ve been a reader for a few months now. Your blog is so honest. So inspiring AND entertaining! I love it.You were part of the inspiration to start my own!
    Similarly I’ve struggled with a lifetime of food ‘weirdness’. I actually wrote about it in this post:

    YOUR honesty in your blog helped me feel “okay” to share my journey. So thank you. And please continue writing. And never give up. Tomorrow is always a new day

    I always remind myself ” Tomorrow is a new day “. Dont stress about whats already happened, just remember them the next day so you dont make the same mistakes.

    Perfect.
    I’m finally finally FINALLY learning that the best way to get over a “snacky day” is to just move on & not beat yourself up over it. I used to try to make up for it in the following days, but that just led to a vicious cycle. Now, I’m starting to just let go and accept it…and it works!
