My WISE Experience...

Feeling Worthy

I had a major "WISE Surprise"

I joined WISE to lose the 40 pounds I'd been carried around for decades. Instead I lost the 40 years of being unworthy.


Making Peace

Making peace with my body has not been easy.

It has taken a lot of work and commitment and I am still trying. I have known for a long time now that I needed to make a change and that is why I joined WISE. When we had to write a letter to our body, it forced me to take responsibility for my actions, forgive myself for what I had done and helped me move on.


Time to Move On

I no longer make jokes about my weight.

Enough said. This shtick was getting old. I no longer laugh at fat jokes either. Time to move on.


To Be Kinder To Myself

WISE has helped me learn not to be so hard on myself. It is not about the weight – it is about accepting me for who I am. I can change the way I react so that my past does not become my future.
