Objectionable Obligation or Inviting Opportunity?

[Inspired by Terri Graham] Am I the only one who finds it SOOOO hard to wait for a zero ~ “true hunger”? There are many things in my life that I do even though I don’t want to do them…  like doing the laundry…  dishes…  going places when I’d rather stay home…  I even shower, floss, wash my face, […]

Patience & Perspective

What is a “0?” How Do I Know I Am Hungry?

I get asked about physical hunger all the time. I made a video to help answer some questions about this. I hope it helps! Summary: Hunger is not a sound (a growl), it is a sensation. Getting hungry will not slow down your metabolism in Thin Within because we eat when we are hungry. We […]
