"Hi, my name is Teresa! I joined the Eating On Tellus course because I felt desperate about my eating disorders. At 13, not being overweight or having any health issue I became anorexic, at 15 bulimic and from there on I have always dealt with binge eating... and this has gone on for 33 years. I have followed traditional psychological and psychiatric conventional therapy for years, I have been treated by some of the most renowned experts in eating disorders in different countries, I have taken all kind of meds, I have even been hospitalized, ... but nothing worked long term. I happened to “meet” Fernanda while surfing on the Internet looking for one more solution... her approach was innovative, different, it was not about the food and this really resonated with me because I have always known deep inside it was about my mind, about my permanent lack of mental peace... I started to follow her on her Facebook page and did her 5 day free course, which was a breaking point for me. Just following it allowed me to temporarily stop my daily binge eating. I knew this could work because it was addressing something deeper, not just the superficial food issues, so I decided to join her course no matter what. Before joining I was a bit afraid that it might not work, but not as much as when I have gone to a new therapist in the past. I was committed to do all it took. And I did. At the beginning all went well, but then I went back to my daily night binge eating and started to feel overwhelmed, hopeless, frustrated,... I was seeing everyone else having insights and progressing and I did not understand why if I was doing all the work, was so stuck... but then, I relaxed a bit and decided to keep on doing the job assuming and accepting that I was slower, that I did not have insights, that I might have to “let it be hard” as Fernanda said to me... and something, don’t know what, happened. I have stopped obsessing about food, I have stopped bingeing, overeating, over exercising... For the last three weeks, and without trying, I had no binges, no food thoughts, no losing weight obsession... and I’ve lost three kilos! The very best of the program is Fernanda. No doubt about it. She is always there for you. She is generous, compassionate, kind, affectionate, loving, devoted, committed, honest, sincere, patient,... there are not enough words to describe all the positive qualities she has and she uses with every single one of the persons in the program (who, btw, are awesome and a great help, too, thanks to Fernanda because she creates an amazing community ready to help and support each other). If you can, please join. Your own journey will be different to everyone else, but Fernanda will show you the way to get out of your mess. Truly. And on top of everything, you’ll learn a lot about your brain and LIFE with capital letters. Best thing I did this year!"
