I used to work for a large weight loss program serving children and families as a nutrition teacher and counselor. Though I truly loved working with the kids and parents, I often found myself at odds with the information I was responsible for teaching. I truly did not agree with many of the protocols and guidelines recommended. It was very hard for me to be there teaching material that I did not wholeheartedly believe in, so I had to stop. And I promised myself that I would never again put myself in a situation where I had to say and do things that were not true for me and that I believed were harmful to others. It is hard to walk away from jobs that offer a certain kind of stability and familiarity. I was scared, but clear that I had to go out on my own or work with someone and for something that had the same values and beliefs I did. That is why I was thrilled to connect with Marc David. What we have been able to create together with the Institute for the Psychology of Eating has been beyond my wildest dreams. I finally get to do work that’s completely congruent with who I am and what I believe. I love that every day, my job is to share with people the information tools and techniques that help me break free from a decade-long eating disorder. That is why I love this quote by Emerson: because it reminds me of what is possible when we choose our own path and when we stay true to what is real and important for us even in the face of uncertainty…..

“Do not go with the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”
