Congratulations, You Just Cured Obesity

  1. I always love reading your blog posts, Glenys! So wonderful to read a dietitian who has similar ideas as I do! Yay HAES and non-dieting! 🙂 Keep ’em coming!

    Great read! I just started a couch to 5k program that I downloaded. My goal is not to lose weight it is to get into better shape in case I need to outrun anything!

      Fantastic! I always wanted to like running, alas, my lousy feet work against me every time. Enjoy – I have many friends that came to love running in that way!

  3. Exactly. The non-dieting approach is so helpful at improving health! When my clients are ready to change their mindset away from weight their behaviours, mental state and health improves very quickly.

    Amen. I did WW twice. Lost 65 pounds the first time, kept it off for…drumroll, two years. The usual amount. I blamed myself for the regain, as does everyone in WW. The only people I know who keep it off either work for the company or think of NOTHING BUT FOOD, which may be the same thing. I thought of NOTHING BUT FOOD for two years. The two I kept the weight off. Turned into a food obsessive. Not worth it.

    I’m a total natural/whole/organic food person and have been for decades because that was how I learned to cook forty years ago. Cook from scratch, tons of veggies, whole grain, beans, fruit. Pregnancy was the big factor for me. No way can I revisit my pre-baby body and at age 60 (!) gave it up trying.

    I enjoy my walks now – they are not an attack on my body size. I still eat from-scratch whole natural organic food – that’s my norm, not an ideology. Doesn’t make me thin, but at 61 I have yet to have any symptoms of the common chronic diseases of aging. I also eat chocolate, drink coffee (sugared) and beer or wine regularly. Life is too short to not enjoy the full range of food and drink offerings.

      I love it! You’ve discovered what works for you!! And more importantly, what doesn’t! We should all be so lucky – congrats!!

    I am a dietetics student (and overweight) and there are days where it’s terribly difficult to stand tall and proud knowing that my size is no indication of my health. On days like those reading blogs like yours makes all the difference. Thank you.
