Chicks in Control - IE - Conscious Eating and Conscious Eaters

05-08-2014, 10:02 AM
Hi IEers, I came upon this interesting website filled with resources for intuitive eating and mindfulness. I'm really enjoying it.

I particularly love the affirmations for compulsive overeaters:

1. My worth as a person is not diminished in any way by my body size or my eating patterns.

2. I will love myself no matter what my eating patterns are.

3. I will judge my days not by what or how much I eat, but by the accomplishments I have made and the love I have given.

4. My life is a gift, and I will not let my enjoyment of it be diminished by feeling guilty over my body size or how much I eat.

5. I am finished blaming others, situations, and myself for the way I eat. I will take action minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, and day-by-day until I can eat normally again.

6. Compulsive overeating is a temporary condition in my life.

7. There is a normal eater within me. I will let her/him take over my life more and more each day as I am ready.

8. I can imagine a life without being a compulsive overeater.

9. When I feel stressed, I will close my eyes and picture how my all-powerful, normal eater would handle the situation.

10. I believe I will be a normal eater again. I know I will be a normal eater again!

Thanks for posting, that is a great resource. :)

I love the list of books it provides. I thought I had read all the IE books but apparently not. Yay more reading material! :)
