We make choices everyday. Some choices are more automatic than others... and when we work towards healing and recovery those choices must be mindful! It is a mindful choice to recover, it is a mindful choice to take care of YOU! How will you make a mindful choice this week?! #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecoveryarmy #lifecoachforwomen #recoverycoach #eatingdisorderawareness #neda #therapist #recoveryisworthit #fullrecoveryispossible

A gift from my Wayne for recovering 100% from the herniated disk (I DID IT!) and in preparation for a Japan trip in the winter. 💋 I love it and I love him, ❤ looking forward to our trip.

I am working on an exciting project but having writers block right now. Help me out with a HUMP DAY game.
If you were on this road right now, who would be on it with you? and Where would you go?

I would be with my two amazing children and our chocolate lab. We would be driving somewhere to look for fun rocks or gems. One of their favorite activities and great family fun!

Over the past month I’ve been challenged to practice what I preach in an entire new way! Ive been challenged to listen to my body with every minute signal it gives me, to rest, rest and rest some more, and to practice constant self advocacy and awareness. .
Life brings about several obstacles, and it is how we react, cope, and grow from these experiences that we build our resilience! That resilience will shift with your life, and you are allowed to do what you NEED and want as your life takes these crazy turns! My life has taken a crazy turn, it’s actually been turned completely upside down, and I am practicing acceptance, and let me tell you it’s not easy! Recovery coaching, and working as a therapist has majorly helped this medical journey of mine, and I will continue to push through! I am thankful and grateful for my family, friends and furry babies that have and continue to help me through this time and take cute photos while I am in a deep mid day slumber. #edawareness #selfcareeveryday #recoveryisworthit #fullrecoveryispossible #bodykindness #haes #healthateverysize #selfacceptance #selfawareness


What purpose does this serve me?
What does health mean to me?
Is this helping me live a better life?
Does this help me live in-line with my values?
What else is going on in my life right now (stress/change/emotionally)? I understand wanting to make changes that could improve our health, and sometimes that may mean changing what we eat and how we eat. I’m a dietitian, I deeply value health. But I think it’s also important that when we start to wonder if a restriction diet is the right way to make those changes that we check back in with ourselves. Take some time to figure out what we really need and how we can make long-lasting behavior changes.

This past season has been difficult to say the least but this door 🚪 behind me represents one of the many about to open in this next season 🍁 #expectgreatthings #greatthingstocome #doubledoors #fullrecoveryispossible #provision

Today’s art practice while getting my 5th of 6 rounds of chemo 😘 onwards ho #wegotthis #fullrecoveryispossible

Over the past week, you may have seen many posts of women breastfeeding their babies in support and honor of World Breastfeeding Week. I hope that any mother who wishes to breastfeed their child is able to do so. I also hope that we can continue to increase resources and support to those that struggle. ------------------------------------------------------------
Women are often reluctant to inform their doctors and medical support team about their eating disorders, partially because of the anxiety and guilt surrounding food. And since pregnancies are often unplanned for women suffering from eating disorders, there can be even more challenges during feeding time. So, the anxiety and dysfunctional thoughts around breastfeeding go untreated.
I know there are a lot of breastfeeding experts that are passionate about helping women. And I hope that you’ll continue to share your expertise and passion. I hope that women with eating disorders are able to reach out to breastfeeding experts and feel comforted by the support you provide. And no matter what others say is *best*, we know we do what can as mothers. #womensupportwomen #momstrong

Look at your happiest moments in life, picture what was happening, who was around you, what was the energy...? I promise you that how your body looked was not WHY those moments were so amazing.... your body is simply the vessel in which you chose to love your beautiful life.... so treat it well, appreciate what it does.... but leave it at that! #radicalselflove #edawareness #edrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #fullrecoveryispossible #edrecoverycoach #recoveryloveandcare #bodykindness #haes #healthateverysize #selfcompassion

The next time you consider counting calories, consider this: it’s easy to simplify a concept to the point that it’s no longer true. Even though, simple thermodynamics say an excess number of calories can cause an increase in body size, "calories in-calories out" equation is a drastic oversimplification. It doesn't take into account so many more variables that affect both sides of the equation.
On the blog, I explore the hunger hormone, ghrelin, as one explanation as to why calories-in and calories-out equation is not an end-all, be-all equation. Our bodies have a whole host of complex processes and mechanisms, including hormones, that determine metabolism and preferred weight ranges.

I'd love for you to weigh in and share your thoughts and comments.

Always enjoy spending time with the amazing Jenni Schaefer! Writer, eating disorder recovery advocate, but mostly... incredible spirit:). Thanks, Jenni, for all that you do to support FULL eating disorder recovery. Had a great time with you this past week at aNewBeginning.com #jennischaefer #FullRecoveryIsPossible #eatingdisorders

My Eating Disorder served me. It provided me with false hope, false happiness, and a false sense of self worth.... and then it all came crashing down during recovery. My body was confused, my emotions were all over the place and I felt hopeless.... but I pushed through, with blind faith and ALOT of professional and personal support and with time, patience and perseverance it was so worth it! Why? Because now my smile is real happiness, my hope is far from false and I feel fulfilled within and beyond my body! For those of you in the midst of your Eating Disorder I want to remind you that you are supported, you are not alone, you are strong and you CAN choose Recovery! #eatingdisorderawareness #edawareness #edrecovery #bosswomen #mentalhealthawareness #endthestigma #mentalhealth #recoveryisworthit #recoveryloveandcare #fullrecoveryispossible #edawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery #recoverycoach #edtherapist #charlestonsc

6 yrs ago --this is what yrs of drugs and an eating disorder had done to me...

Sometimes recovering from an eating disorder feels like giving up your best friend. But beneath the eating disorder voices and the harmful behaviors lies your true self. You are not your eating disorder and we cannot wait until the moment you realize that you are so special, worthy, and enough - just the way you are. #fullrecoveryispossible
