Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

“Maybe I need to take better responsibility for getting what I want”

Jackie, a coaching client of mine (not her real name), is recognizing that she has been giving away her personal power for years and that’s driving some of her emotional eating. Here are two examples she shared with me last week.

“I give my Dad and husband the better looking pieces of fish and I take the one that looks like it might have bones in it. Then I feel unsatisfied or resentful and then I feel I have to have dessert, or I want to give myself a binge later that evening, or I’m snacking all night long.”

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!
