Blog Break

Hi Everyone,

After a lot of thought, I have decided that I can’t post here for a while. My heart hasn’t been in it for a couple of weeks now and I am starting to be obsessed. The combination of blogging about what I eat, being on weight watchers and being accountable at weight watchers meetings is just too much for me. I need some time to really think about what it is that I want and I hope that a break will do that for me. I have such mixed emotion in doing this because I have met some truly wonderful people here. It just isn’t the right thing for me right now and I need to figure out what is.

Much Love,

  13. This makes me sad too. I remember you said that if you started to binge you would stop dieting. Could this be the warning sign to stop dieting? I hate to try and give advice on blogs but something I was thinking was this. I read on your ‘about me’ section that you did really well on atkins (low carb) but then developed gout and so couldn’t carry on. I just wanted to say that maybe you could try and lower your carb intake but just not to an atkins level? I know that when I eat under 100g of carbs a day I know longer get cravings but this is still way higher than when on Atkins. Just a suggestion. But I have gout too and have never got it since doing this and have managed to control my appetite. I wish you all the best and hope to hear you blogging in blogspace soon!!

  14. Im so sorry—but so glad.

    glad you are doing whats best for you.

  17. Good for you! You clearly know when it’s the right time to do things for yourself. Many hugs fro you. Much love,

  18. I’ve been reading your blog for a while but never commented. I wish you all the best in managing your relationship with food and decisions about lifestyle changes (dieting) and intuitive eating.
    I my own experiences in self acceptance I am more drawn to the binge/diet cycle when I am anxious about not being good enough the way I am. When I think all my problems will be better if only my skinny pants were looser or if only I could follow Atkins/Weight Watchers or even be a better intuitive eater.
    Even though I am just on the outside looking in, your blog has been a great example of IE for me. Your have regular meals and snacks and didn’t seem to talk yourself down for allowing treats you enjoy in moderation. You were feeding your body good food in portions that you were satisfied with and neither going hungry, nor binging. So it was a shock to me to see you post about how your eating had been getting out of control and that the answer was weight watcher.s
    I guess what I am getting at is, was your eating really out of control or did you just feel out of control?
    I hope you don’t think I am being intrusive since this is my first comment but as somebody who could have written your ‘about’ story (including getting sick on atkins) I am on a similar lifes path and just want to let you know you are not alone.

  19. Good luck figuring out what is best for you. I’ll miss your posts. Remember, we all support you and are here if you do need us or want to come back.


    P.S. Happy Thanksgiving
