Stories of Hope -- Rhonda from Dover, MN
Admitting you have a problem as serious is addiction is not an easy thing to do, but Rhonda K. of Dover, Minn., did it. “I was in denial about my food addiction for at least ten years,” she said. “When I wasn’t eating I was thinking about food. Isn’t that one of the classic signs?”
In a period of 10 years she had put on more than 70 pounds, and blames her weight gain on a sweet tooth. After finally admitting to herself that she had a problem, Rhonda did an online search for food addiction treatment and found the COR Retreat Food Recovery Program in Wayzata, Minn.
“Without COR Retreat I wouldn’t be where I am now. I didn’t have the strength and tools to do what I have done, and the support after the fact has been tremendous,” she said.
