"Finally, after 50 years of bouncing back and forth between deprivation and overindulgence I am now finding an easy balance."
Candidly, I did not want to sign up with Irene because I thought she would telI me to stop consuming alcohol. I was surprised and delighted to learn that Irene's program is not a diet. It's a series of discussions that help you discover why you consume and a set of tools that teach you how to respond to the pull to food and drink.
Finally, after 50 years of bouncing back and forth between deprivation and overindulgence I am now finding an easy balance. It feels wonderful to know I no longer need to suffer through a love/hate relationship with food and drink. I can calmly choose. I can enjoy what I eat because I no longer spend the entire time distracted by recriminations and regret.
The discussions Irene has with you allow you to discover what you really want for yourself. I used to think I had to achieve a certain number on a scale and would be constantly disappointed with myself for not being there. Now I know what I really want is to feel comfortable in my jeans. I no longer weigh myself and it is such a freedom from self-recrimination.
Irene has taught me how to change my life for the better. Gone are the rounds of deprivation and overindulgence, the recriminations and regret. Through the conversations with Irene I have realized what I really want for myself, my health. And with the tools Irene offers I have learned what techniques I find easy to help me make better choices that support me achieving my wants.
You can keep trying diets that only work while you are on them, or you can learn tools and techniques that make it easy to make better choices and enjoy food while getting what you want for your body every day for the rest of your life. It's your call.
