I understand that sometimes we are just surviving rather than thriving. While in survival mode, we often rely on disordered eating to make it through the day..This takes its toll on us physically and emotionally. Have you ever spent the majority of the day thinking about food or fearing your next meal? Maybe you have had a big transition in life, moved from home to college, ended a relationship or are now an empty nester. Do you try to avoid looking in the mirror? Do you feel helpless and hopeless? Do you self-criticize and compare yourself to others? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, know that there is hope!

Sometimes the choice requires having the courage to begin again...start over...wipe the slate clean. I have made that decision myself which involved working against fear, insecurities, and many other obstacles. Life does not always give us the opportunity to make lemonade. Sometimes we have to throw away the lemons life dishes us and decide to make something new.
