Welcome to the Blog!

I'm here to share my story and experiences with you, woman to woman. I am not a doctor or therapist. Some of the posts are just my advice and/or what I was taught through the Psychology of Eating's Certification program. A lot of them are every day experiences.

If you have a similar story or experience with food and body I'd love to hear! Comments and emails are welcome about whatever you feel like sharing.
