Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday To Me

Those of you who have known me for a long time know about my birthday ritual. Starting on my 24th birthday, I began letting myself eat whatever I want for the entire day. That year, I had been on Weight Watchers for several months and had been eating lots of boring fat free cheese, baked…

What Do You Really Deserve?

What do you really deserve?

Everyone has used food as a treat at some point. As a child, you may have been taught that if you’re good / quiet / compliant you would get a treat. Maybe it was a cookie, some candy, or my old favorite- a graham cracker topped with Nutella. Your brain has been programmed to treat…
