Are you ready to break free and embrace God's love for you?
Recovery is Possible.
On the outside you show perfection, but on the inside you are hurting.
You are a powerhouse woman, a leader in your field, a multi-tasking momma, well educated and you have a heart of gold. You hold everything together no matter the circumstance, but if your friends and family could take a peek inside your mind, they would see a different you.
The voice in your mind just won't stop
Telling you to compare to other women, just to strip you of your self-confidence
Yelling at you to follow the rules or you will "lose control" and be a "failure"
Convincing you that if you ever have "that body" again, life will be miserable
Counting, measuring, weighing and calculating
Worrying that you just made the wrong food choice
Worrying that you will never be good enough, beautiful enough, even capable of being loved
Worrying that if you let go of the rules and rigidity, you won't be able to deal with life
Worrying that if you don't lose weight you won't be respected in your job
Worrying that people will judge your body and your food choices
You fear the unknown, the life you will have without the companion of an eating disorder.
Whether you struggle with binge eating, anorexia, bulimia or cycle between any of these, it’s not your fault. Seeking help is scary, because you know you will be letting go of what has kept you safe, comfortable and protected. However, when you join forces with a non-diet dietitian you can form an unmovable foundation that will strengthen your healthy self as you slowly let go of the lies that have consumed you and move into a life of freedom, a life worth living.
Reset your focus and begin to heal your mindset. Learn skills and tools to overcome negative thinking as you finally look through the lens of hope.
Heal your body and mind as you reconnect with your hunger & fullness cues. Embrace a variety of foods without fear & anxiety.
Begin to show your body respect by taking your focus off weight & size. Nurture self-care strategies that help you care for your body without judgment.
Heal your relationship with movement. Find ways to move that give you life and joy without chasing after calories and weight goals.

Dieting always promises to give you the body you want by eliminating hunger, telling you when and what to eat and how much to exercise. You have tried this one...and that one...and you have felt like a failure.
YOU did not fail.
The diet failed you.
Every diet or restricted eating leaves you confused about what you should or should not eat. It sets you up to potentially eat more than you planned or eat to a point of discomfort-leaving you with strong emotions of guilt, shame, disgust and frustration. So, you are determined to BURN it off through exercise. Off to the gym you go, watching the calories tick by on the cardio machine OR you just avoid it completely because you are embarrassed about your body or simply have not seen physical activity in so long it is overwhelming to even consider. Frustrated again, you throw in the towel with the "forget it" mentality and go to the fridge or the pantry for you quickest comfort food.
Did you nod your head in agreement to any of the above?
Don't worry, you are not alone! I've even nodded my head in the past! There is an awesome solution to improving your health, eating the foods that make you feel good (without depriving yourself), moving your body because it is fun-not to punish yourself for the foods you have eaten and to live free of food obsessions!
