While I’m making progress, I suspect there are others out there that are looking for support too. Not finding one easily, I posted this on Facebook, and the feedback has been very positive, with at least a dozen folks interested. I’ll have to wait until this play I’m in is over but looking forward to creating this support group. Fourteen people have responded with interest in just a couple of days.
From Facebook: Not optimistic that I’ll find what I’m looking for and might have to form a group. I’m looking for a place that offers support for healthy eating and inspires fitness, something of a 12 step approach but also welcomes ideas about changing habits, mindfulness, and addressing the emotional foundation to unhealthy and self destructive lifestyle.
This group would provide support, non-judgement, anonymity, compassion, and inspiration.
Also, if you can suggest a venue, such as a church or meeting place open to use in the evening, maybe one day a week.
