Why do we keep drinking, and why do we keep dieting* (including the so-called "wellness" diet), when both of them can:
Leave us feeling like utter crap
Erode our trust in ourselves
Fill us with shame
And a host of other lousy outcomes that no one would willingly sign up for?
We keep drinking and/or dieting (in part) because as bad these are, we fear that life without them will be even worse. We worry that being alcohol-free will mean a lonely, boring, sad - you-name-it - life of deprivation. And we worry that giving up trying to control our bodies will lead to the loss of control over everything else in our lives. And those fears may be just the tip of the ice-burg.
My mission is:
To call bullshit on ALL the messages that feed these fears.
To quietly (cough, cough, hah, hah) offer alternative viewpoints and messages.
To support those who are ready to look behind the smoke and mirrors because they want a better life for themselves.
Please hear this: Whether it's drinking, or trying to change our bodies though dieting, or both - WE ARE ALWAYS DOING OUR BEST TO COPE. There is nothing wrong with us - on the contrary, we are gd survivors. And if you're here reading these words, you are likely at the point where you want to learn how to cope in different ways - in ways that serve you without your having to pay the harmful prices exacted by drinking and/or dieting.
And you absolutely can learn how to do this. I've done it, I've seen countless others do it, and you can as well. Truly.

*"Dieting” includes pursuing weight loss, trying to shrink your body, manipulating your food (and activity) under the umbrella of 'health,' and having an uneasy relationship with food.
