Body Love, Eating Psychology and The Disappearing Blogger

Hello friends,

I’ve been fairly quiet since the end of my last juice feast. My recipe sharing has been scarce and I’ve been doing a lot of inner work. If you’ve followed this blog from the beginning, you’ve seen me through a million cleanses, juice fasts, and dietary experimentations. I’ve blogged about my struggles with emotional and binge eating many times, only ever really sharing the tip of the iceberg in what I was going through. Today, I am overjoyed to say that I feel more free than I’ve ever felt in my life and I truly love my body for the first time (even though it looks the same as it has for years). I no longer have hangups or obsessions about cleansing or having the “perfect” diet and I can’t imagine why it took me so long to see everything so clearly…Well, I guess I can. I was afraid of letting go of control and afraid to trust myself. I’ve wanted to be a health coach for years and I’m finally ready to take the steps that will allow that. Interestingly, I’m not as focused on detox or diet as I once was and I think I will be of much greater service to the world by focusing my efforts a little differently. In a few weeks I’ll be starting a course with The Institute for the Psychology of Eating and am unbelievably excited to expand my knowledge and gain skills in working with others. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my veggies. I’m still the nuttiest of the health nuts I know…but it doesn’t run my life anymore and I’ve freed up so much space and energy to experience more of life. Looking forward to sharing more in the days to come ❤

    You are stunning, Rande! I am so excited for your major revolutions in the relationship with your body! I’m excited to hear your tips for women who are struggling with body image issues 🙂

  5. Rande, I am soo excited for you! That is wonderful that you are feeling so good in your body. I am experiencing now what you talk about experiencing in the past–frustration and a little bit of obsession. Hearing you say that you have finally found peace gives me hope for me. I am finally listening to people and realizing just how much time and effort it takes to get to that place of peace! I am so happy for you and I know you will be a great health coach! You’ve already helped me so much, I’d love to be your client 🙂

    That is SO exciting! How did you reach this freedom? How is the school? I went to IIN and I would love to someday attend the School for Psychology of Eating, I am kind of obsessed with them. I would love to hear more about the school and your new found freedom.
