Depression as an Obstacle to Recovery from an Eating Disorder

It's a lot to fit into a 15 minute video, so keep in mind that it's not as comprehensive as it could be, but next week I will be delving into some other issues to piggyback on this topic.

ENDING Distorted or Bad Thoughts

Distorted thoughts can sometimes be harder to eliminate than actual behaviors. This week, I answer the question "How do you let go of them when you are already behavior free, at a healthy weight but your negative thoughts and fears are still in your mind?" In this video, I detail a 3 step process for ending distorted or negative thoughts.

Eating Well with a Busy Schedule

A twitter follower and recovery warrior asked me about how to eat well with a busy schedule earlier in the week. It got me thinking about what a very good recovery topic for a video this would be. So, without further ado, I give you a thorough bonus video: EATING WELL WITH A BUSY SCHEDULE.

Healthy Relationships and Boundaries

A lot of people ask me about relationships. I have talked about eating disorders and relationships in the past in videos and blog posts, but today I want to talk about relationships in general. Because sometimes, eating disorders aren't what complicate things. Relationships can be complicated themselves. And there are many people who do not know what constitutes a healthy relationship. Other times, boundaries are an issue. Often, what I see, is that boundaries are an issue and people don't even know or realize this is the case. So today, I'm talking about healthy relationships and boundaries. Let's get down to business. This has nothing to do with eating disorders and has everything to do with you.
