My strength for today is putting one foot in front of the other as I continue down my path to recovery.
“Today I am blessed and grateful for having finished the 7 steps in my Why Weight for Recovery workbook. It is incredible to be able to look back at how much I’ve grown.
My unrelenting standards allowed me to do what was suggested of me, even when I didn’t have faith in the process, and I am forever grateful for the fear, the tears, the anger, and the uncertainty; for the courage, the hope, the strength, and the determination to keep going.
My amazing friend Heidi who I consider family, was always there for support and encouragement. My awesome sponsor Felice become not only my confidant, but my friend in recovery as well. She continues to teach me that it’s ok to trust, to love, and to live in the present, because we don’t know what tomorrow holds. This process has changed my life.
Wishing you serenity and happiness on your journey!”
About The WWFR Solution
A Program for Real Longterm Results For People Struggling with their Weight
People who are considerably overweight or obese didn’t become that way overnight. For most who suffer from this disease the process is long arduous and a perpetual cycle of dieting, deprivation, self admonishing, guilt and shame.
There are an estimated 97 million adults who are overweight in the US. This condition substantially raises their risk of morbidity from hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and respiratory problems, and endometrial, breast, prostate, and colon cancers. Higher body weights are also associated with increases in all-cause mortality. As a major contributor to preventive death in the United States today, overweight and obesity pose a major public health challenge.
Eating Disorder Treatment
Unlike most treatment programs, Why Weight for Recovery addresses both the emotional issues and “addictive” elements characteristic of most eating disorders. We believe an eating disorder often results in a loss of control with one’s relationship with food and/or “dieting.” Whether resulting in a pattern of compulsive overeating, repeated episodes of binge eating followed by purging or periods of dieting – or attempts to compensate for over eating by any number of measures, we’ve come to describe this eating pattern as “food addiction.” Yet for others, the compulsion to restrict food intake and avoid weight gain to the point of jeopardizing one’s health is but another form of addiction, namely anorexia. One common thread among all eating disorders, regardless of form appears to be their similarity to other forms of addiction.
Why Weight for Recovery treatment encompasses a mind, body and spirit approach that includes tools for recovery, meetings, fellowship, coaching & mentorship. God is defined as Good Orderly Direction and takes which ever form participants are comfortable with. This is not a religious program. To participate we encourage individuals to have an open mind and everyone’s journey is different.
Exercise is determined on an individual basis and participants may be encouraged to seek professional advise.
The Food Plan is a general guide for each person to develop a personal eating plan. Compulsive overeaters need a food plan so as to stop our obsessing about food. Participants learn how to refrain & abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive foods. Determining trigger foods.
Other tools for success include journaling, reading, meetings, having and action plan and being of service.
