Let’s Celebrate Being Good Enough

I am celebrating today!  Nope, it’s not my birthday or wedding anniversary or graduation or any of those usual milestones we typically recognize… I am celebrating that one year ago this week, I wrote the blog post where I admitted my struggles with perfectionism.  You may be thinking, who cares… but stay with me a […]

Let Go of Picture Perfect

Do you look in the mirror and give yourself a compliment?  Or do you zoom in on what you perceive as your not-so-perfect appearance?  Or when it’s time to shop for a bathing suit (with those awful lights), do you think, “I love my body just as it is?” Or do you use magazine cover […]

The Missing Piece of The Nutrition Puzzle

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get the results you’ve always gotten. If you want to get out of the eternal spin cycle when it comes to your challenges with eating, if you want to feel a sense of freedom and victory, then it’s time for a new strategy. ~Marc David, The Institute for […]

Are You Waiting for the Perfect Moment?

What Happens When You Learn to Let Go?

As most of you know by now, the pursuit of perfection was once the force that drove everything I did. I was an ardent t-crosser, an every-i-dotter, an if-everything-isn’t-exactly-how-it’s-supposed-to-be-I-can’t-sleep kind of person. I needed to be in control…of everything, including the things I couldn’t control.  Does this sound like you or someone you know? For […]

When Perfect Is Not So Perfect

If you consider yourself A Control Freak, Type A, Classic Overachiever or Total Perfectionist, then this post is for you! I’ll admit it.  I picked this very topic of perfectionism to write about because it hits close to home. Let me explain. For years, I searched for the “perfect” diet, relying on books to dictate […]
