Do you believe in the expression, “too much of a good thing?” I think it depends majorly on the context. When it comes to the internet, however, finding the information and tools you want can be daunting because there literally is too much to choose from.
I’ll be the first to admit that here at Healthyezsweet Life, there’s a lot of information to sort through. And here’s the thing – I only want you to take what’s meaningful to you. So in addition to announcing some changes coming to the blog, this post is designed to present you with a list of my most popular and helpful eating disorder recovery resources. All in one spot. No more searching or wasting time. The basics are here for the taking!
Change Is Good
*Repeats the above line to myself 10x a day* Can I be honest with you guys? I feel like we’re on that level, ya? Change scares me. Especially change that involves my blog and this community because, quite frankly, this space and you guys are the most important thing in my life. You’re the reason I get excited in the morning and why I want to be better each day. *Sappy moment over* So making any changes to that dynamic gives me pause. But the change that I’m proposing will be a good thing, I believe it. I’ve been putting it off for fear of losing some of you, or de-valuing what we’re all a part of here. But I have to go with my gut, take this chance, and hope for the best. I hope you’ll see what I mean.

Now that I’ve created some degree of suspense – or maybe you skipped through and totally disregarded my flair for the dramatic. In any case, let me explain the change. Starting now, I will be uploading new blog posts once a week (every Friday) rather than three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). I know it seems like a dramatic decrease, but I have a few reasons for doing this. And I truly believe that by the end of this blog post you’ll understand why in this scenario, less really is more.
So you’ve heard a lot of buzz about this whole “Intuitive Eating” thing…now what? This beginner’s guide was designed to help you make the transition from self-imposed food rules into natural, balanced, and enjoyable eating. It’s a process, and you have to start somewhere.
Perhaps the most important factor that went into my decision to reduce posting from 3x a week to 1x a week is my desire to shift into recovery coaching. Some of you may have already taken the survey I created to poll interest for a new program I want to create, Recovery Reach Out. For awhile I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a one on one coaching program, designed to help eating disorder survivors make the transition from disordered behavior into healthy habits through a foundation of self love and self care. And I truly feel like it’s time to take the plunge, and start creating. If you want to check out some of the specifics that I hope to include in Recovery Reach Out or have any interest in recovery coaching, check out the survey. It’s basically my brain storm of what I’d like this program to be and do for you, and how it would work. Suggestions are very welcome!
Weight gain isn’t part of everybody’s eating disorder recovery, as you don’t have to be underweight to struggle with an ED, but it is a significant battle for many people, including myself. This free, mini eBook will introduce you to 10 different strategies on how to cope with weight gain, love your new body, and stay centered in recovery.
In addition to spending more time investing in and creating Recovery Reach Out, I believe that reducing my new content from 3x to 1x a week won’t take away from your ability to build positive body image and work through recovery for another reason. That reason being that there is a surplus of resources that I’ve already developed for you to choose from. This post includes just a few of the most popular resources that encompass general themes of eating disorder recovery. If you browse through Healthyezsweet Life, you’ll find so much more. Utilize the search bar at the top righthand corner. Click through to a few different blog posts that you haven’t explored before.

Part of truly embracing recovery is letting go of habits that help you cling to control.

I hope you all understand that I’m not saying goodbye, just shifting my focus for awhile in hopes that I can create something that will be even more valuable to you.
