So today, I went to group and work, and took the kids to the dentist instead of going into my parents house. It was really hard last night to say to Eina that I wasn’t coming in on Tuesday. When I say goodbye every evening, she looks at me and says, “You are coming in [...]

Remeber when I filled out the Risky Situation Worksheet? Well, today is the day! So far so good. It’s 9:15. I am not on schedule. I forgot to take into account how late we were going to stay up last night. It was Parents’ Night Out at daycare. Robert & I went to dinner. He [...]

Anyway, she said that if a person is resisting, then the person is engaged. I didn’t really get this until I applied it to a [...]

Actually, I’m more mad than that. I’m fucking pissed off. Today is Tuesday; the day that I have my CBT group in the Kaiser Eating Disorder program. So I drive up to Walnut Creek from Livermore only to find that the group has been cancelled. They didn’t even call me. I’ve been in the group [...]

Part 4. A theme ran through the comments of the women studied that echoes the information in chapter 4, “Sociocultural Influences on Eating, Weight, and Shape.” Most of the women expressed that they felt extremely degraded and vulnerable by their direct experiences of being encouraged to exercise as a means to achieve an acceptable body.
