It’s Time To Come Clean: My Struggle With Bulimia

Posted by curlyq on May 18, 2015 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

My heart is pounding in my ears as I type this. I don’t know why since I don’t have to write about my struggle with bulimia; rather, I want to write about my struggle with bulimia. Now that I am on the other side, I feel like I can share what I’ve learned and try to inspire others […]

1 Month of Meals in 2 Hours

Posted by curlyq on September 6, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Marriage, Nutrition |

Picture by MomTimesFour I’ve read a lot about making dinnertime easier, but haven’t really moved past the reading part. Until last month! And, oh my goodness! What in the world was I waiting for?! I haven’t cooked in 3 weeks thanks to the one hour my husband and I spent assembling Ziploc bags full of […]

Giving Yourself Permission to Eat, Part IV by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on May 15, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

Chapter 5: Feed Yourself Faithfully You will likely not do a good job of eating if you are casual about feeding yourself, grab food when you happen to think about it or when hunger drives you to it, absent-mindedly snack and nibble instead of taking time to feed yourself, or chronically restrict what you eat.

Giving Yourself Permission to Eat, Part III by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on April 4, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

Eat As Much As You Want Does the name of this chapter make you nervous? It certainly made me nervous! Satter quickly reassures us by noting that fear of letting us eat as much as we want leaves out an essential part of the equation: the body’s wisdom. Being hungry can be a positive and exciting feeling […]

Posted by curlyq on April 4, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

I have already summarized Chapters 1 and 2 of Ellyn Satter’s Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family here. Below I will briefly summarize Chapters 3, “Honor Your Appetite.” Hang on to your socks! This is radical! (Some of this stuff is taken verbatim from Satter’s book.) Honor Your Appetite We are often afraid that if we […]

Giving Yourself Permission to Eat, Part I by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on April 4, 2014 in Caring for Yourself, Nutrition |

I have endured a lifetime of disordered eating and am experiencing a renaissance in feeding myself for the first time in my life. It is liberating. It is nurturing. It is nourishing. It’s not going to make me fat or skinny. And I’m sharing this in hopes that it can help even just one person feed him or herself […]

The Truth About Honesty: It’s Not Always the Best Policy by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on September 9, 2013 in Caring for Yourself |

Until recently, I prided myself on being honest. I loved that people felt like they could come to me for straight-forward answers. Unfortunately, what I didn’t see was that sometimes it’s best to keep my mouth shut or, heaven forbid, just say something kind despite the overwhelming desire to shout out the facts. When I […]

What I Really Think About Motherhood by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on August 5, 2013 in Caring for Yourself, Toddlers |

Yesterday was a hard day to be a Mom. The fighting kids, the defiance, the fighting kids… It was one of those days. As I sat down on the couch last night exhausted, I logged on to the Mommy Mentor Facebook page and wrote, “Can we talk about how being a Mom can really suck? […]

If You Could Hear My Thoughts by Anonymom

Posted by curlyq on June 12, 2013 in Caring for Yourself, Marriage |

If you could hear my thoughts… You’d realize I’m crazier than you already think I am. You’d realize that I care way too much what you think about me. You’d hear how big I think my nose is and how much I hate it. You’d learn how much I think about food. You’d know how […]

But Mom Said, “Put Others First!” by CurlyQ

Posted by curlyq on June 5, 2013 in Caring for Yourself |

On a recent flight, I heard the flight attendant say, “In the event of an emergency, an oxygen mask will release from the ceiling. Place the mask on yourself before helping those around you.” I’ve heard this a hundred times, but I really heard it for the first time that day. I was struck by […]
