This is a new approach to the agony of not being able to eat what we want, as much as we want, and when we want it!!

We have heard of many many diets.We have organizations that recommend eating plans, organizations that even deliver food to your door!

But where can we find a place where we can talk about our bodies and what it feels like to live in them, and listen to others? A place where we can wonder about our love for ourselves?

It’s true that in some of the organizations we sit in a group, but most generally there’s someone at the front telling us about what to eat or how to cook it, how much to exercise to do, how much we’ve lost (or usually, to our shame, put on!), etc. etc. etc.

In this group there will be no weighing and no diets suggested, but acceptance of each person’s journey and of what they offer the group. It is expected this will be a group where members do not need to be ashamed or feel criticised but will be able to speak freely and share their life stories.

The group will determine if there are subjects they would like to discuss. We may talk diets or exercise or what works or how we’ve gone in the past week. We might talk strategies if people want to. We might come up with some simple suggestions we can all try.

Group members are encouraged to keep what is discussed in the group within the group so that it becomes a safe and confidential space.
