"Search beneath the obsession with weight and the quest for the 'perfect body'. Reclaim your sacredness, your right to your own voice and your ability to make your own choices.Free yourself from the obsession with food and discover your true self.  Believe that there is an end to the struggle and that you can live a life of loving,nurturing, and enjoying your body, your mind and your soul".
