Thank you all for the AMAZING comments on my last post about quitting dieting. I always say I have the most supportive readers but wow, I seriously could not have imagined so many heartfelt comments. You have no idea how much every single one meant to me!

And after such an emotional post, I’ve been struggling with writing a post to follow it. I have recipes to share, products to review but it just doesn’t seem right. I want to tell you how this new decision has impacted my life… but it’s too soon. So I’m taking a few days to reflect and see things through. To eat without “evidence.” I can tell you that so far it’s been liberating to say the least but I’m guessing the hard part is awaiting.

I’ll be back soon. Thank you again!!!!

    I’m rooting for you, Elina! I mentioned your decision to stop dieting in my post this morning, I hope you don’t mind!

    I have gone through the same thing and once you do the ‘no diet’ diet, everything falls into place. You eat what you crave/want and feel so much better at the end of the day!
    Best of luck to you Elina!

    The hardest part of actually letting yourself eat intuitively is starting. When you take the “legality” away from foods, eating them freely, there is a guilt that initially comes along with that. And there will be overeating too an extent too but in time, the food loses it’s “pull” over you & you start to enjoy things more.

    Good for you, Elina!!

    Taking a step away might be a good thing, especially since as with any big change there can be a range of emotions. Taking a few days will give you a more holistic perspective to reflect on. Congrats again on making such a good decision for yourself.

    Best luck on your new journey. We’ll all still be here, when you’re ready. On a side note, I too am embarking on a healthier, punishment-free, relationship with food, my body, and myself.
