I received a text from my dear friend Dana who asked what I thought about an article written by CNN HEALTH, regarding returning to intuitive eating. The gist of it was that if we return to our childlike self, where we listen to our bodies and know what we feel like eating, when we are hungry and when we aren't, then we can restore our bodies to the size they are supposed to be.

Looking outside myself for something that lives in me intrinsically,  can be like trying to fill a glass of water that is already full.

Some of these thoughts beat us up and whip us for not being good enough, but I believe that they too, are trying...
