Too Much Support

In this week’s Vlog, I tackle a complicated question: is it possible to have too much support in Bright Line Eating? You might think you know what I would say, but my answer will probably surprise you…

    I’m pretty sure you misspelled the word “diane” on your site. You might want to check out a site like or which have helped me with problems like this in the past.

    As addicts, I think we’re capable of being obsessive or compulsive about even good things. Compulsively participating in BLE is possible. AND there’s no one right formula. We each find our way..
    There’s also an important distinction between BLE connection for support and BLE connection as service – being aware of our intention around the connections.
    As compulsive people, it’s also easy for us to get a rush from over committing.
    As with all BLE habits & actions, I think the surest test is “am I at peace?” “How free do I want to be?”

      Thanks Suzan! Great things to consider!! “Am I at Peace”? ” How free do I want to be”? I’d add to that,, “Is my cup being filled , or drained”? Thanks again for your wise observations.

    Susan, thank you for the honesty in addressing this topic! I appreciate that you are acknowledging the risk of obsessive, disordered eating and orthorexia in a group that, let’s face it, can’t moderate. I have observed this slippery slope in the FB group with members posting many times per day! What wise words that balance and a need to reflect on what you are distracting yourself away from is the key to recovery.

    Wow Susan, that was so on the money. Sometimes it is like an obsession and can lead to burn out. I was just
    Feeling this last week. I was ready to chuck the whole BLE “thing”. I chose to pull back on a couple of things and feel so much
    Brighter and peaceful. Thank you for confirming these feelings.

      We’re so glad you didn’t chuck the whole thing, Carol, and that you were able to see clearly what it was that you needed at this time. Wishing you well! 🧡

    That was brilliant!! Being that we’re dealing with addictive brains, yes, anything to excess would be a big warning bell!!! Like always, every part of this plan needs to be looked at individually, and see what is working!!!! and what isn’t!
