Notice about Contacting me

I’ve had a hard time with this decision, but I need to let everyone know that I can no longer send personal responses to emails, private Facebook messages, or Instagram direct. I love corresponding with readers and trying to do what I can to offer encouragement and support; so this saddens me. However, I simply can’t keep up at this point in my life. I’m raising 4 young kids who need so much of my time–time that I want to give to them. Thus far, I’ve been able to strike a balance by writing/corresponding primarily at night after they are sleeping, but I’ve gotten backed up to over a 1-month response time, and I don’t think that’s fair to anyone who contacts me.

I’m also trying to ramp up efforts on my new book, which will be self-help in nature (Brain over Binge was primarily my own story). I hoped to publish it by the end of this year, but realistically, it will probably be in early 2015.  

To help those with additional questions after reading my book, I’ve just updated and added resources to my FAQ page . I hope it will address any issue you are concerned about. Also, I’ve tried to discuss common concerns in my blog posts, and I will continue to do that as much as I can. You can also follow me on facebook and twitter for updates and some nuggets of useful information; and like I mentioned in the last post, you can follow me on Instagram for food-related content. If you feel you need direct support, please see the coaching page for information about working with Dr. Amy Johnson.

I will still read all the mail that I receive, and I truly appreciate anyone who takes the time to contact me. Thank you for your support. You all are an inspiration.

  1. Of course, it makes total sense. How could practically have the time to reply to every personal demand or question, there must be a lot – and more and more – people contacting you. And you already published so much information. Seriously, you’ve done so much already (looking forward to your new book though 😉
    That’s it, I just wanted to say I support your decision. It’s very understandable. Don’t feel bad about it :-)
    Thank you again !

  2. Hi Kathryn! This decision is totally understandable.

    I just finished your book (and LOVED it), and I was wondering if maybe in the future you could expand on that one paragraph in your book about those that started binging BEFORE ever dieting?! The entire book still applied to me and is incredibly powerful, but I definitely belong to that certain group (I think my first bing was around 4 years old – it truly feels engrained! )

    Of course no personal response necessary, just an idea for a future post!

  3. Yes, I can certainly do that. I will try to do a post on that topic in the near future! Thanks for writing.
