The truth about my shopping addiction

Blog · Emotional Eating · Live More Weigh Less · Your Body · Your Relationships · Your Self


So there’s this thing that happens when I walk into Anthropologie.  It’s like the clothes start pumping heroin into my veins and I.JUST.CAN’T.STOP.  I want to buy everything and stopping myself short sends me directly to a place of deprivation and depression. “I deserve the clothes” I tell myself, and shopping with abandon makes me feel free and wealthy.  But when I get home I have a crazy hangover, feel guilty and stuck. A lot like I used to feel with a pint of ice cream.

Being on a diet and a budget triggers the same response for most women. That feeling of restriction sends us straight into a panic and all we can think about is breaking the rules. That’s when buying a new dress (or four) when we can’t afford it, or eating five chocolate cookies even when we’ve sworn off gluten can give us a rush.  We feel dangerous, free, like a little rebel.  And it feels good. Until it doesn’t.

If this has ever happened to you, I hope you’ll join me for a completely free coaching call with  Sandra Hanna, founder of Smart Cookies. Sandra has been a leader in women’s financial empowerment and has caught the attention of Oprah, written two books and has taught women all over the world how to be smart with money.  Sandra and I are so excited to talk about the trap of diets and budget and tell you exactly what you can do instead to have freedom.
