January Happenings

Happy New Year!

To start the year off on a positive note, how about some resolutions that don't involve disliking yourself?  Rather than focusing on losing weight, why not resolve to improve your relationship with food, and while you're at it, your relationship with your body?  This will help you NOW and will last way beyond the crash-diet/gym-heavy January norm.

Action Plan:
For those in/around NYC, I will be starting a six-week Eat in Peace. group on January 19th, 2011.  Co-led with a registered dietitian, the group will focus on developing a healthier relationship with food.  To sign up, or for more information, email me by January 14th at

For those in the Northeast (or those from farther locales, looking for a winter escape), register for the Lose the Diet. Love Your Body. Eat in Peace. weekend-long workshop I will be leading January 21st-23rd at Kripalu Yoga Center.  For around the cost of one therapy session, you get a whole weekend with me!  What could be better than two full days of yoga, programming around mindful eating, connecting with like-minded individuals, all in the beautiful Berkshire mountains?   Registration will close tomorrow, January 7th, so sign up now!

Hi! I really love your blog-I'll be sure to follow you! Please visit my blog whenever you can, I have 87 days sober and one day abstinent, and I'm blogging about it. Follow me and/or contribute a few words of wisdom. I’d love to hear your experience and I need some more support from those of us who suffer from e.d's!

Oh boy. This is a hot topic. Isn't it tragic that we, as women, and many men do have a problem with this to one degree or another? I never had anorexia or bulimia, but did go through several years feeling way over impressed by food and its effects. Finally I beat it. Several years later, now, I've been compelled to share my experience. I'm just sure that there are many out there who think like me and their life just may change too. My book is titled: Stop Thinking About It: Winning the Emotional Battle Surrounding Food and Weight Loss by Lori A. Williams. It is currently on Amazon if anyone is interested in giving it a look. Good luck!!
