Marcia's Story: Trusting Your Wisdom
Like many women of 62, Marcia had been on various diets. “I had been down that path over and over: Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig…the usual. I even got thin a few times, but I always gained the weight back, plus more.” She even became a personal trainer and a wellness coach but continued to struggle with her own eating - that is until she learned about Am I Hungry? Read more about how Marcia learned to trust her wisdom to guide her toward freedom and health.
Jeannette's Story: Emotional Eating - The Missing Puzzle Piece
Known as Twiggy throughout high school, Jeannette remembers "the moment I began my struggle with emotional eating. I received some very traumatic news and it felt like a switch was flipped. I began using food for comfort. But I ate when I was happy too. I’d eat two rows of cookies and feel so ashamed. I even started hiding my food.” Read more about how Jeannette discovered the missing puzzle piece to resolving emotional eating.

Lexie's Story: Overcoming Your Past
Not everyone who struggles with their weight has a troubled past. For those who do, weight is often a symptom, rather than the problem. Focusing on weight loss rather than coming to terms with the past is just a distraction. In many cases, it further compounds the problem. Lexie’s difficult story is punctuated with food-related memories and insights. It is a story of hope. "I love Am I Hungry? and I want others to know how powerful it is. I think for so many people, it seems 'too easy' so it's hard for them to believe it's possible. But I am living, thriving proof that it IS possible!" Read more about how Lexie has been able to overcome her past and heal her relationship with food.
Ginger's Story: It's Not About the Weight
Following the birth of her third baby, Ginger found herself getting on her bathroom scale four times a day.

She intuitively knew that her sudden obsession with her weight and food wasn’t healthy. Read more about how Ginger freed herself.
