My Goals:

- be kind to myself

My Program:

- the book "Eating Less: Say Goodbye To Overeating" by Gillian Riley...this book has helped be understand about the habit of overeating, why it happens, and how to change this addictive habit.
- the book "Brain Over Binge" ...breaking the brain-learned habit of bingeing on food.
"The Beck Diet Solution" by Judith Beck
"Diets Still Don't Work" by Bob Schwartz
