    I’ve been down with a bad head cold & cough… Not eating as much die to the phlegm overload… Doing my best… Temps are lower this week with my period and being sick but I’m sweating a lot more… Could the sweating be dropping my temp on me? How do I counteract that? I’ve never sweated much prior to RRARF’ing…

    Today marks the end of week 4 RRARF’ing. I’ve decided to end the experiment here and revisit HCG, which is what I was doing prior to trying this. Here’s a blog entry with my thoughts on my last month’s experience if you’re interested. I will be vlogging about HCG on my YT channel now, so if you’re not interested, I recommend you unsubscribe. :) http://islandsneezer.wordpress.com/2013/12/30/final-rrarf-update/

    Islandsneezer,

    I saw that you’ve done some somatic experiencing therapy. I just started seeing a somatic experiencing therapist about a month ago, and was wondering if you thought it had helped you?

    @mmmfood, yes, doing somatic experiencing therapy helped me tremendously. I discovered that the constant gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach that i had always thought was hunger, and had fed literally till I was ill from bingeing, was not hunger, it was stored trauma. The therapy healed the trauma and that feeling left for good, and I never binged again. Completely liberating feeling. It also gave me tools for managing stress. I could go to my “happy place” when I was feeling overwhelmed by circumstances in my life and breathe through it, rather than trying to numb it with food or distractions. How has it gone for you?
