JACQUIE FINDS ENCOURAGEMENT THROUGH JOURNEY TO HEALTHY LIVING
For most of her life, JacQuie struggled with her feelings of self-worth, and relied on eating as a form of control. Recognizing that she needed help breaking unhealthy habits, she decided to participate in Journey to Freedom Healthy Living.
“I had a place to go where we were all safe to talk,” said JacQuie. “Everyone could say their thoughts and feelings uninterrupted and unchallenged, and that was encouraging.”
Journey to Healthy Living provides group support for those searching to find freedom from food issues, eating disorders, and negative body image.
This small group guides participants to achieve peace with their bodies and lifestyle.Since completing Journey to Freedom, JacQuie has been able to take control of her eating and enjoys making disciplined choices for nourishment. She has even begun taking care of her brother to help him make healthy eating choices.
“I am a different person now,” said JacQuie. “I get such happiness when I say no to unhealthy choices, and yes to healthy ones. Now that’s empowerment!”
