I'm Not Here

I have decided to suspend my activity on this blog effective immediately. Feel free to click on the labels at the right side  of the blog to view any articles in which you may have interest.

The good news: I am not suffering a relapse of my lifelong binge eating disorder. In fact, it's about time to stop using the term remission and declare me cured. These days a hungry/reckless day involves eating an extra serving of meat or fruit and I think we can agree that is not a binge. I still have every reason to believe I can lose my remaining 20-30 pounds of excess fat and maintain a healthy weight indefinitely.

No, the real problem is that I'm not a qualified expert in any topic except the experience of being an older woman who used to suffer from binge eating and was quite fat as well as sick from eating the standard American diet of junk food. My solution was to drink water kefir and avoid processed foods and that's all that's really worth sharing.

My only promise is that if/when I have thoughts I'm excited about sharing I'll mention them in 2 places: Twitter and Facebook. It's possible, if it's that major, that I'll post a series of articles here but I make no promises at this point.

Otherwise, if you're reading this you have my sincere thanks for your past interest and friendship and best wishes for a happy and healthy summer and beyond. Now go outside and enjoy Mother Nature and then eat some unprocessed foods. :-))


  1. We'll miss you Nance. I, for one, think that your insights are valuable exactly for the reasons that you say they aren't.

    There are enough people out there - especially in the "paleosphere" - that take on the expert mantle (whether warranted or not) and not enough real people sharing their personal experiences and thoughts on the journey.

    But I understand, and I will look you up in other places.
    Thank you,

  2. Thanks Nance for sharing your journey with us so far. Being a blogger myself, I understand the stress that feeding a blog can bring so I understand that you might want to take a break. I found your take on things - as well as the insights from your personal experience - quite refreshing also, like Chris B.

    Hope to hear from you again, and I'll look you up on Facebook in the meantime.


  3. I'll miss you too Nance. Your opinions, advice and example are very much appreciated - from one older woman to another!
    I wish you the very best of luck in your continued journey. I don't do facebook or twitter, but maybe I'll see you on paleohacks every now and then?
    Best of luck too with the family thing. XO

  4. Nance, I've missed following your journey on Paleo Hacks so decided to look for you and found you here. I've valued your sharing. I just turned 70 on Sunday and feel and look better than I have for years. I hope you will comment occasionaly on PH. I think you have a lot to offer. I don't have facebook and I don't tweet, but I'll be looking for you on PH. All the best to you and your family.
