Today is the first day of Autumn- which means- disordered eating season is upon us.
There are so many reasons for it, especially now after a year and a half of lock-down- when people have become obsessed with their Covid weight gain and ads for diets and workout plans are popping up everywhere.
It starts on October 1st, the day that Starbucks introduces its pumpkin spice latte and other limited edition coffee drinks. They begin to tempt us with warnings that it will only be here for a limited time. It messes with our scarcity psychology and causes us to spend tons of money and eat and drink lots of things that we normally wouldn’t spend money on- just because it’s “limited.” I call it the pumpkin phenomena. All of a sudden it’s pumpkin beer, maple latte’s, candy corn frappuccinos, etc. etc.
After that is Halloween, which messes with everyone. There are women in sexy cat costumes, candy everywhere, parties, no parties, covid drama, etc. etc. and then there is the after Halloween affect of all the half price candy, bowls full of your kids’ trick or treat bounty- just sitting there TAUNTING you. Halloween is a super scary holiday for binge eaters and emotional eaters because Halloween brings candy all over the place and then it lingers for weeks and months afterwards. I hear so many people telling me that they are continuing to binge on their kids’ Halloween candy in January.
After Halloween, Thanksgiving comes which is a full on binge holiday – it brings with it family drama, mashed potatoes and phantom urges, and then there is December.
December is the worst! There are constant parties, constant drinking, there are cookie swaps, latke feasts, gift baskets full of peppermint brownies sent to your office or your home, baked goods all over the place. and then there’s that “well just screw it, I’ll go on a juice fast starting on January 1st and then after 3 days I’ll go Paleo…” and then you binge your way through December feeling awful, sick to your stomach, uncontrollable, uncomfortable and holding on to the promise that 2022 is going to be different. It’s going to be your year and then by January 2nd- you’re back on the cycle and you already feel as though you’ve ruined the whole year!
LET’S NOT DO THAT THIS YEAR!
Let’s have a peaceful, calm, easy and moderate Fall this year. I want to support you in being kind to your mind and body. No crazy diets, no intense binges. And if you slip up, I want reach out to help you stand up quickly and not slide down that slippery slope of end of the year madness.
Starting October 4th, we will be doing the 2021 Fall Cohort of the 5 Week Step by Step Program to Stop Binge Eating. We will all being doing the program together this Fall starting on October 4th!
Here’s what you get:
The FULL 5 Week Step-by-Step Program to Stop Binge Eating For Good and everything that comes with it for a LIFETIME! It’s always yours.
The Facebook support group that comes with it.
Holiday Buddy support. So during the holidays, I help people match up with buddies so that they have extra support and someone (or a group) to text with so they can get help to stay safe and moderate and comfortable with their eating.
I will be doing Facebook lives which are interactive before the major holidays to help give you extra support and answer individual questions about families, food, challenges, etc.
An email every single day in December to help you stay focused on your goal of self-kindness, self-compassion, eating with kindness and love, not over-eating, not restricting, but enjoying your food and not beating yourself up over what you might have done or not done with eating and your food.
I want you to start 2022 strong. I don’t want you to start 2022 thinking “this is the year I finally tackle my food issues,” I want you start the new year feeling calm and relaxed and not feeling like you have to make any big changes. I want you Fall to be lovely, peaceful, enjoyable and full of joy instead of angst over food.
