Stories of Hope -- Teresa from Maple Lake, MN
The New Year is going to bring a lot of changes for Teresa L. of Maple Lake, Minnesota. She is in the process of seeking a new job, and is learning to live a life free of compulsive overeating.
“I decided it was time to jump in and take care of myself, and I can’t even tell you how it has changed my life,” she said. “Now I’m cooking meals with fresh food, and I’m off the caffeine and sugar."
In December 2011, Teresa attended the COR Retreat Food Recovery Program, a five-day, four-night residential retreat in Wayzata, Minnesota that teaches a way to live free from the obsession with food and the excess weight it causes."What’s wonderful about COR Retreat is they were able to get me to change my way of thinking so I can begin the healing process. I can’t even tell you how this program has changed my life. Now I am cooking meals and enjoying my food. I used to eat everything out of a box,” she said.
