Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

If There Was Nothing Holding You Back?


A Question


1. If there was nothing in your way, nothing holding you back; no limits, no blocks (financial, personal, professional), no more excuses…what is the one thing you would choose to do that, to date, you have not pursued or done? (Please choose something other than weight loss.)

2. Once you know what it is that you REALLY want to do, determine what’s REALLY in your way. Is it a real or a perceived obstacle that’s keeping you from getting what you want? Is it fear, lack of skill, talent, time or resources?


3. Next, determine what it is you could do, anyway, to get what you truly want?

I have worked in the Wellness Field for 30 years. I created an Emotional Eating & Binge Eating Disorder Recovery Program way before most people knew BED was an eating disorder, NOT a “willpower” issue. Personally, I suffered for years before finding answers and the help I needed and deserved! I became a Coach in 1997 to help others who were still suffering as I had. I love being a Coach!
