Personal and Website Updates, Podcast

I apologize it’s taken me so long to get back to writing.  I kept waiting to get more sleep before beginning to post again, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen anytime soon; so I figure now is as good of a time as any!  For now, my posts may be rather brief, but I hope still worthwhile to some people.

Just a quick personal update: I delivered a baby boy (our 4th child, 2nd boy) on Nov. 5th. He is healthy and adorable (I am biased), and my 3 older kids (6, 4, and 2 yrs old) absolutely love him. Although I’d hoped it would be different this time around, he takes after his siblings in not being a good sleeper and having some tummy issues. I have yet to get more than 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep since he was born!  So, if there are any errors in my writing, I blame extreme sleep deprivation. It’s definitely been a major adjustment, but things are starting to feel more “normal” again….whatever that means with young children running around the house.  

A couple updates about the website/blog: I plan to have a new look for the BrainoverBinge.com website and blog in about a month or two, which I hope will be more user-friendly.  I am working on adding an extensive FAQ section to the website that should be completed by the end of April. In it, I will address common questions I receive about diet, resisting urges, relapse, weight, and more.  

Finally, if anyone is interested, I recently did a podcast interview hosted by Alen Standish of the Quit Binge Eating Podcast.  Alen is doing some great work sharing his own experience, research, and various points of view to help those struggling with this problem.  My episode is on Thursday 2-14-13.  Warning, I am a better writer than a speaker, and I hope you can’t tell how nervous I was. I guess public speaking is a pretty common source of anxiety:-)

  1. Yay! Here’s also delighted that you’re back to posting. Even though I am delightfully and unexpectedly binge-free due to your work, I’ll continue to come back here for refreshers and because I just like you’re writing!

    Keep up the great work!

  2. I had already listened to that podcast before reading this. I thought u came across very knowledgable and confident!

  3. I so enjoyed the podcast. It was great to hear you speak and that you are a normal person. One thing you said in the podcast that inspired me so much and which I remember when I am having doubts is that you wouldn’t even be thinking about bingeing if you didn’t have this book out. That really drove home for me the point that its not just he tames housepet variety of recovery we are talking about. It’s real complete recovery.
    I’m in the early stages here, but I look forward to seeing what’s in store for the website. The forum is great to have, so I hope that stays and becomes more active. I’ve been recommending the book to lots of people online.
    I think it would be so interesting to hear what you would change about the book, if anything. Or that you would add. Maybe that will be in the FAQs.

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the podcast and found that part inspiring:-)

      It’s very kind of you to recommend the book to others, thanks so much! I wish you much continued success, and I hope that soon binge eating is only a distant memory.

      In hindsight – seeing the questions that people have – there are definitely things I think I could have added to the book or written in a different way; but ultimately I accomplished my goal of telling my own story in order to help/inspire others to overcome this awful problem.

      It’s good to have the blog in order to discuss more topics, and I hope the FAQ section will be helpful to many (it’s hard to find a spare minute to complete it, but I hope it won’t take more than another week or so).
