Imagine what life would be like if you could finally stop worrying about your body or feeling out-of-control around food…no wait, you really can.
What if you didn’t
need to seek power through societal
or fitness to be seen?
We want to see you, not the faux version of you that believes body changes are your only option.
Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word Body Image as: ‘a subjective picture of one’s own physical appearance established both by self-observation and by noting the reactions of others.’
Wow, what a relief to know that body image is SUBJECTIVE!
Safe relationship with self and others and the ability to feel at home inside despite the environment is what the journey is truly about.
Here’s the truth : programs will never fix the body image wounds that are inside.
Despite the fat prejudice and obsession with health, fitness and youth our culture propagates, it is not inherent that we need to look a certain way to know deep in our bones that we have value and worth.
We are under no illusion that it is easier to have a smaller body in these western cultures.
There is no minimization of that.
But we see you as a unique being who can be in this culture but not drink the poison of “I worry about my body because that is what everyone else does so might as well go along too”.
We think more of you than settling for that life.
This is what our When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies is all about!
In this 4-week group class, we gather to discuss, process and build safety around the charged topics of:
How we got infected with this belief we had a "bad body"
Where and why are these beliefs stored in our bodies (you will know because those are body parts you obsess about, hide or try to get rid of?
Journaling, reflections and exercises for discussion
Safe enough connection; we totally understand that it will be challenging to trust and be vulnerable but we will witness you with utmost respect and care. If we make a mistake, repaid is our highest priority
And so much more!
Here’s what the program will look like:
- 4 weekly one-hour group meetings via Zoom at 6 pm EST beginning Monday, February 5th.
- We’ll cover several chapters each week from the book, ‘When Women Stop Hating their Bodies’.
- Meetings will be facilitated by myself, Tracy Brown, a trauma-informed, non-diet dietitian therapist
- We’ll foster an environment that makes you feel safe & supported while making great connections with others on the same journey
- She’ll ask open-ended questions and make suggestions with consent; she won’t give advice or tell you what to do.
- You’ll get to share what you’re learning and encourage others
- Each week you’ll get practical tools and tips to build a new, healthy, non-obsessed normal around food and your body just being your body.
- You will receive an email the day after each class with the materials for the following week.
- Please come to each meeting prepared by completing the assigned workbook lessons and be ready to explore and share.

We’re not saying this work is easy, but thousands of people have taken this journey (including all of us here) of coming home to our bodies, looking in the mirror and seeing ourselves, not the talking points of any media or opinion of any person of what your flaws might be.
Recognizing body image issues have a root in desire to belong, fear of rejection and avoidance of sensations inside the body that feel threatening and using food and the body as the container to create safety, false though it is, through weight loss is the first step.
You don’t need to believe you need to fight the systems, but you do have to participate in your freedom by hating your body less at the very start.
Working with a trauma-informed, non-diet dietitian has been a game changer for me. I learned about intuitive eating five years ago. I stopped dieting, read all the books, listened to all the podcasts, followed influencers in the non-diet space and still I struggled with weight worries and eating when I wasn’t hungry or eating past full. I’m finally uncovering my barriers to being an intuitive eater, engaging in joyful movement and accepting my body as it is. I’ve had a safe space to dig deep and wrestle with tough questions. I’m so grateful I finally decided to stop trying to do this on my own but wish I would have worked with someone at the beginning of my journey. It would have saved me a lot of time and struggle.
Don’t Miss Out!
No striving, performing or earning with your body required.
Registration ends on Monday, January 29th but don’t wait as we expect this to fill up fast.
If you’ve been nodding your head while reading this, or thinking, “that’s so me” then join us today.
Friend, you don’t have to hate your body. You don’t have to feel out of control around food. You don’t have to go back to dieting.
You can experience a deeper level of freedom.
And you don’t have to do it alone. Let us support and encourage you on this journey.
