THOUGHTS, FAILURES, AND ACTIONS

Do you ever have a day when you had high hopes for something, and it all went the wrong way? Do you ever feel like whatever you try to do turns out just plain wrong? Do you have a voice inside your brain that says you are fat, stupid, ugly, incompetent, disorganized, hopeless, unworthy, and […]

FOOD AND FEELINGS

Yesterday I did the Third Saturday Support Group. This is a three-hour program offered in my office on the third Saturday of the month; it has been going on, with the help and hard work of Marty Lerner, PhD, from Milestones, for seventeen years.

Theresa’s Take on Truvia

Today’s blog is what my son would call “One of my Mother’s Rants”. As you may know I am rewriting my food plan book. And so I am reading a lot of the literature about artificial sweeteners. And, as the Universe would have it, a number of people have been in my office with problems […]

GOT THE PURPLE GRUNGE?

It’s winter, and there are lots of flu and cold bugs going around. A number of people have asked me how we handle sick days abstinently, so I thought this would be a good time to address the issue. Today it snowed, about six inches where I live, and the temperature outside is 29 degrees. […]
