Happy New Year, ladies! It's that time of year again, when everyone is busy making, or has already made, their resolutions. High on that list, more often that not at the very top, is a resolution to lose weight or go on yet another diet. I have a radical suggestion: How about we resolve to love ourselves exactly as we are? This doesn't mean neglecting our physical health or giving ourselves carte blanche to live an unhealthy lifestyle. It means honouring and respecting yourself NO MATTER WHAT YOUR SIZE, and realizing that the number on the scale is not the sole reflection of who you are.
I am pleased to inform you that my workshop is ready to go, and I am inviting a limited number of people to join me for free at my first event.
The workshop takes place in Toronto on February 1st, 2011, from 12:00-3:00 pm. A workbook is included.
What we will be doing:
Part 1 is an overview of the society we live in and the challenges we face as large women. Through an interesting and fun visual presentation, we will examine the world we live in, the images we see on a daily basis, the role media plays in our lives, and discover ways to transcend the negative messages and replace them with positive ones.
Part 2 deals with emotional eating and the role it plays in most of our lives. Through journaling and other exercises, we will discover the roots of our lifelong connection to food, and find ways to satisfy our emotional needs other than eating.
Part 3 is the REALLY fun part, which I call the "Positive Turnaround". We will learn how to implement several different techniques, such as meditation, in order to change negative patterns, learn healthy coping skills, and set ourselves on the road to the life of our dreams.
This workshop could very well change your life. Please don't postpone your joy any longer. Live the life of your dreams and let your beauty shine.
Please RSVP as soon as possible, as space is limited. Can't wait to meet you there!
