“Welcome pilgrim, your search has ended.”
That was what I heard at my first Weight Watchers meeting as the leader motioned me up front to take a seat. Unfortunately, I spent nine stints in weight watchers, with the same hopeless, helpless results. Eventually I took what I knew from addiction counseling, my experience with my own struggles and opened the nation’s first eating disorders unit. Over the past forty years, working with thousands of overeater families, maintaining my own seventy pound weight loss, invited to appear countless times with Oprah, Dr. Oz, and numerous news and talk shows, I developed the SuperSlim4Good™ program which you can do from your own home. No longer will you and your family need to take months out of your life, and travel to remote treatment facilities. Stick with me, listen and learn and practice some difficult new behaviors, and you can marshal yourself into “recovery.” These new behaviors are always best when implemented in your home environment, facing the usual triggers and finding a less self destructive response. This is a TREATMENT PROGRAM based on decades of testing while implemented in hospital settings. It is an opportunity to take yourself and your struggles with food more seriously. I purposely offer this program only twice a year. The first is over “the holidays,” those many lost weekends between Halloween and Valentine’s Day when we are constantly “swearing off” and going back. That was always the time of year when I gained back the same thirty pounds. A second difficult time was at the end of January when all the New Year’s resolutions ended in sorrow and more weight so I swore off some foods, getting ready for summer. Our second teleseminar starts near Valentine’s Day helping you work toward fitting into those summer clothes. Instead of the usual and customary bingeing cycle, I started my own recovery four days before Thanksgiving in 1974. For years after that, I found that patients who were admitted during this time of year, came out the most committed, the most undaunted, the most resolved to limit food intake, “no matter what.” So, I invite you to join us, the truly committed, hardcore change agents, in weekly phone conversations, to learn about your illness, your lifelong, chronic struggle with overeating, restricting, and ultimately self loathing and to find a way out of the suffering.
By the end of our three month commitment, you will…
- Develop an ongoing flexitarian food plan accounting for your lifestyle and exercise challenges.
- Be able to push through your own resistance.
- Strategize necessary self talk and self soothing techniques when food calls.
- Develop competent boundary demarcations with loved ones and colleagues.
- Negotiate with a mentor to keep yourself accountable and visible.
- Identify and head off at the pass, your own self sabotage “rackets.”
- Catch yourself “transferring obsessions” and find new ways to be still and committed to your own objectives.
- Recognize dangerous relapse warning signals and head them off with new strategies.
- Walk the thin line between surrender and compliance, finding your own “middle path.”
- Head off “flight into health,” instead finding a way to “fake it ‘til you make it.”
- Adopt behavior modification techniques, practicing mindful eating and meditation at least once a week.
- Outline the progression of your own physical and psychological obsession.
- Become acquainted with the personality quirks that keep you bingeing, and develop strategies for keeping them visible and trainable.
