A Young Women’s Emotional Eating and Healthy Weight Retreat


“I need to lose weight fast. I don’t feel acceptable at this size.”
“I keep sabotaging myself with food and I don’t know why.”
“Food is my go-to when I feel lonely, stressed, overwhelmed. It’s how I get through school – and life – right now.”
“I feel caught in a cycle of overeating and then hating myself. But it doesn’t stop me from going back to food again to cope.”

Do you know a young woman aged 18-25 who feels like this?

Combine that with worry over eating, weight, body image — something that afflicts many young women today — and you’ve got a recipe for eating and weight struggles.

During the first two weeks of 2015, we’re offering a special program for young women on college break to make use of this time to set the stage for managing well throughout the year. And the solution, they are happy to learn, isn’t giving up pizza.
