We believe that the women of America are wasting too much time, energy and resources worrying about how we look rather than caring for ourselves and others in life-giving ways. While some women need to make changes in our relationships with food and our bodies due to health concerns, predominant models in the medical community, as well as the diet and fitness industries, use fear of illness and body-shaming messages to motivate change. Those approaches have proven ineffective at promoting long-term success with behavioral changes—especially related to weight loss. Emerging research suggests that mindfulness and self-compassion focused methods will prove more effective at supporting sustainable behavioral changes related to diet, fitness and overall health.
Whether you’ve struggled yourself, someone you love has struggled, or you want to create a better world for the girls you love to grow up in, there’s a place for you in our community.
