This program has had a profound effect on how I relate to food. I no longer have banned foods or have non-hunger food cravings. Eating feels normal for the first time in my life! I would absolutely recommend this workshop. This program covers new ground. Tools are very usable and available when they are needed. Practical information easily understood. Great job!
My consciousness shifted. I have an awareness that has changed my practices in a loving versus judgmental way. I learned a lot about my eating patterns through hunger attunement and deciphering between symbolic and stomach hunger. Using
my non-dominant hand was very insightful! These exercises are wonderful! I am looking forward to continued contact. This was an amazing class! When every woman released something or claimed something, I felt the same way! Very powerful!
I’ve made some big changes in my life…I was resistant at first, but by the end I had such a sense of love. The last night of group sharing was especially powerful for me… And I made changes in my eating habits and exercise habits…I tried on a glamorous Christmas outfit that I haven’t been able to fit into for several years, and it fits once again. I know that I’ve made these changes consciously with the help of lots of prayers and affirmations about loving myself. And the best part is I did it without dieting!!! I eat whatever I want to but overall I make better choices and I exercise a lot. Riding my bike makes me feel like a kid and I don’t want to stop. So thank you for your work. So many women benefit from your assistance to just turn things around and love themselves fully!…
Barbara, I want to express my profound appreciation for this wonderful workshop. I know I’ve told you before, but I want to say it again, in writing…I ‘believe’ in the concepts and for that reason have been willing to stay with it [the process of the workshops] despite my problems with it. I know in the long run that it is the best approach; in fact, the only long term ‘solution.’ You always seem to have an explanation or a response to every issue I or others bring up as we work at implementing it. I realize how useful the repetition, repetition, repetition is. So many years of conditioning have to be broken down, bit by bit. I stayed with a strong Symbolic Eating urge today, looking at it the way you explained it (again) last night instead of my usual way. Although I have not solved the underlying issue, the urge to overeat has lessened dramatically if not disappeared altogether. There is simply no way to thank you enough. In deepest gratitude
Still reaping a lot of rewards from the Decoding and Intuitive Eating Process! Can’t tell you how much it has helped me- aside from losing weight (and not one craving or symbolic hunger left unfulfilled!) I feel so much more depth of feeling for my eating and nourishment process. Thank you!
