I went to my first weight watchers meeting when I was 10 years old, and I learned what so many women learn from a young age: If I lost weight, and was a skinny and pretty little girl, my life would be better. But no matter how many different diets I tried, I couldn’t stop eating.
It wasn’t until my 20s that I realized I was an emotional eater, and understanding my emotional connection with food, helped me heal a lot of my bingeing and lose a bunch of weight.
This led me to create one of the most popular emotional eating programs on the internet, Live More Weigh Less.
But then life got a lot more complicated.
I had 2 children in 2 years while supporting my family financially and being the primary parent while my husband was in his surgical residency. Most weeks, Jonathan only saw the kids on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. I was overwhelmed with responsibility, sleep deprived, depressed, anxious and felt incredible alone, but I just had to keep going.
Not only did I adopt many of my old emotional eating habits, I completely rejected my body, and renounced my sexuality. But at the same time felt an incredible pressure to look a certain way to maintain my reputation in my work in the world.
After I had my third child, my body was a mess. I was always bloated, my back hurt, my hormones were out of whack, I had insomnia, struggled with anxiety and leaked urine.
I felt like a washed up old troll.
I tried my old emotional eating tricks, but nothing worked, and I realized I had to go deeper. I had to reclaim my body as my Sacred Home. I needed a spiritual healing.
What has transpired the past two years has been incredible. I’ve gone from hating my body and feeling like I’m in body jail to loving this incredible vessel, my Sacred Home.
I am so excited to bring the wisdom and practices I’ve discovered on my journey to you in this potent one day retreat.
