    Just want to offer encouragement to you Nik-yay for seeking out more support for yourself!! Meds can be short-term and based on circumstances.

    Im struggling with competing ideas about logging/counting all my food and investigating more about Intuitive Eating. I feel like I need a new way to get connected to my body so I’ll take care of it better.

    Hello!

  • Absolutely saying prayers for you Mary. And it sounds like you are doing what you need to take good care of your health long term. Do the docs have any recommendations for how to help you manage your weight/eating moving forward? How about your therapist? It sounds like you might not feel so confident in them specializing in these issues…you…[Read more]

    I think I am realizing that I feel really good about listing my plans for eating here, including all food and snacks, instead of logging every single ingredient/food i eat all day. It feels more like “intuitive eating” which is something I’m very interested in learning more about….Good Measures seems like a…[Read more]
