Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

Love Your Body

A Weigh Out; Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight ObsessionLove your body…sounds like such a foreign, unobtainable concept for so many of us. That makes me very sad.

What impact does hating our bodies, or select parts of it, have on our willingness to show up, to participate, to risk, to achieve, to connect with others, to love?

About Ellen Shuman

Ellen on the phone

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!
