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:-)
