Freedom from Emotional Eating, Food & Weight Obsession

Self-Truth in Advertising

How many diet programs, diet books, fat-burning pills, and/or firming creams have you purchased over the years…and then felt lousy about having bought when the intended results failed to materialize? I bet you then heaped blame and shame on yourself rather than on those who falsely promised the products would work.

Self-truth in advertising!  I finally admitted to myself that there was not a program or product out there that could guarantee weight loss!  Really!  I’m not making that up.  I’m up on the latest research.  But, based on my own personal history, I knew what was likely to happen if I could reduce my emotional eating episodes (I learned healthier ways to emotional regulate), and if I moved my body more (I bought and made a commitment to use an exercycle in my bedroom while watching movies on my DVD player–the very same movies I had been watching as I lay on my bed)… and I knew what would happen if I designed a life that was more in line with what I said I wanted (I took the time to figure that out and then I worked on what I needed to do to follow through).

Life is good!

What are you doing this weekend…researching weight loss options or taking one small step toward the life you say you 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!
