A recent bout w/ Overeating and this road to Recovery

As a Refined Food Addict and Overeater in Recovery, recently I was reminded, why it’s so important for me, not to overlook the Overeater part. Self-awareness and Honesty w/ self, is Everything in my Journey of Recovery.

Over the last few months I’ve been working on processing a variety of emotions due to many things happening in my life, perhaps the two biggest being my father dealing w/ health issues and my youngest headed off to college for the first time. In the midst of this processing, without even realizing it at first, I started to isolate myself. While I know Addiction and Overeating thrive in isolation, I’d become overwhelmed, forgotten and convinced myself the best way to deal was to experiment baking SOFAS Free (Salt Oil Flour Alcohol Sugar Free) Whole Food Plant Exclusive desserts, at home by myself in my new Empty nest. And just like That, I was giving away my Freedom again.

I was eating these high-calorie density creations made with dates, dried fruit and nuts, that, although SOFAS Free, was triggering my brain to crave them and want more, and more, Overeating them until they were gone. And then I’d rinse and repeat. And it was a few weeks before I was able to take a step back, due to just flat out being exhausted from how bad my body was feeling as I repeatedly made choices to be a slave to these creations. I reminded myself to go within, remembering these were just..choices..I could make different ones going forward, to get my Freedom back. I reached out to my Therapist and notified her I was ready to address what was at the root of my recent emotions. I’m grateful to have my mind back, I’m grateful to once again, be K.I.S.S. (Keeping It Salt,oil,flour,alcohol,sugar free, Simple) w/ SOFAS Free Whole Food Plant Exclusive, Low Calorie Density Specific. I’m grateful for the grace I extend myself as I remind myself, sometimes, this is what Recovery can look like. I’ll continue to keep pushing though. Here’s to our healthπŸ’•

A Stark Reminder on why my Decision to Banish People-Pleasing is so Important

At the beginning of last year, as I was recommitting to eating SOFAS Free (Salt Oil Flour Alcohol Sugar) Free Whole Food Plant Exclusive and teaching myself how to do so Sustainably, a part of F.R.E.E.D.O.M., the 7-step process I created to help me and others, was Decide to Banish People-Pleasing. A few days ago I stumbled upon a stark reminder of why it’s so important to Intentionally set out not to concern oneself w/ what other’s opinions of our Journeys are. I was reading many encouraging comments people had made regarding my recent Forks Over Knives article when I saw a few of these sprinkled in:

*She looks like she’s starving

*All vegans aren’t Emaciated like her

*She Looked better in the before pic

*She Wasn’t fabulous in the before pic and she’s not fabulous now

*She’s Too thin, now she’s just all teeth

*I Can’t believe some women would rather be skeletal than voluptuous….Etc.

I’m human, reading those stung a little but again, making the decision to Banish Pleasing Others last year, sure helped w/ how quickly I reminded myself, I Choose to Focus on how I’ve been improving my life and inspiring others. I’m going to continue pushing and Eating For My L1fe. Here’s to our health, we got thisπŸ’•

A year ago I was in the throes of battling exhausting symptoms of Depression..this went on for about 5 weeks…prior to that time frame, gratefully, as a Refined Food Addict and Overeater in Recovery, I’d already been on this journey of recommitting to eating SOFAS Free (Salt Oil Flour Alcohol Sugar Free) Whole Food Plant Exclusive for over 6 months…so it felt like second nature to amp up my Self-Care by making life easier on myself w/ K.I.S.S. (Keeping It Salt,oil,sugar,flour free Simple) Whole Food Plant Exclusive…the meal pictured is an example of how I do this and I’ve continued to do….eating this way made and continues to have such a huge, positive impact on my mental health, from giving me the clarity of thinking to better recognize Signs and symptoms of the mental illnesses I’m diagnosed w/ (PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and Bi-Polar), to shortening the length of episodes I experience and so much more…pic is of a baked russet potato and a baked sweet potato w/ spinach and mushrooms sauteed in their own juices, everything topped w/ Mrs. Dash Table Blend Salt substitute except for the sweet potato, which is topped w/ cinnamon….Refrain from advice, opinions, religious quips/dismissive comments, I’m under the care of competent health professionals….Here’s to our health πŸ’•#eatingformyl1fe#refinedfoodaddictinrecovery#crutchfreeliving#sofasfreeliving#wegotthis#leafygreensforfirstmeal#veggiesforfirstmeal#hydrate

A Life I don’t need to escape from

Happy Monday🌟I’ve been finding that one of the most significant ways I’m able to continue #CrutchFreeLiving (abstaining from alcohol, drugs, food outside of SOFAS Free (Salt Oil Flour Alcohol Sugar Free) Whole Food Plants), is to Create a L1fe I Love and Don’t Need to Escape from, doing things I Actually Enjoy.


Obtaining F.R.E.E.D.O.M. from cravings and addictions in general, have given me my L1fe back and I have to be Intentional about how I obtain dopamine hits now, as in the past, the main way I conditioned myself to get those were thru consuming SOFAS full foods, drugs and alcohol. This process involves S.E.L.F.C.A.R.E., the 8-step process I created, that assists me in Successfully and Sustainably Prioritizing self-care and self-love. Learn more about this process in my Ebook “Let Go or Be Dragged: Learning the Healing Art of Letting Go”, complete w/ Bonus Living Soundtrack of my Breakthrough spoken word and tracks, found here: Https://eatingformyl1fe.wordpress.com/sober-eating-a-support-tool-kit/ (Also there you’ll find info on the MasterClass, other Ebook, Coaching, Resources and more).
