When you and I first spoke, I was really at the end of my rope. Now, I feel like I have been reborn. I have hope for the future. It may sound a little melodramatic, but I believe this experience has saved my life.
I have learned so many things from you, the coaches and everyone in the group – how to be more mindful, how to recognize and avoid binge triggers, how to avoid overeating by planning ahead and making positive choices ahead of time, how to deal with diet saboteurs, how to eat out without falling into the “too much food” trap, and most importantly how to permanently get off the diet roller coaster once and for all. All things I probably knew intellectually but definitely not emotionally. Now I feel like I own my thoughts. They don’t control me. I control them.
