Wonder why 95% of dieters gain their weight back? The answers may surprise you. It’s time to stop yo-yo dieting, discover who you are and create healthy habits that will transform your life!


To lose weight and keep it off, you MUST have the right motivation; do it for you, not for a partner, event or season. Permanent weight loss comes from doing your “inner” work, addressing the wounds, trauma and emotional triggers that keep you eating in ways that make you overweight.

During this event, you’ll learn from others who’ve been overweight and have discovered how to transform their lives. Our experts bring practical wisdom and powerful tactics for healing, losing weight, keeping it off and feeling proud of your body.
