Emotional Eating

A Mother's Grief Became A Daughter's Weight Problem

Over the past few weeks, I've been blogging about the fact that our ancestors’ experiences got passed down to our generation, along with the color of our hair, our height, and our general personality traits.

We'll call my client Rose.


How was your Thanksgiving holiday? Still eating leftovers?

There was a time in my life when the holidays (or any social occasions, for that matter) were tacit permission for free-rein eating.

I would eat as much as I could until I reached the point of physical pain. The discomfort of being too full was the only thing that stopped me from continuing to eat.
