"I’m happy to report we’ve made excellent gains in our nutrition :) We have incorporated healthier food choices and I have cut back significantly on my alcohol intake. I no longer crave unhealthy food as an outlet and have actually chosen to get more sleep rather than stay awake and eat bad foods.

We’ve also made a goal to do two family activities a month that get our son out in the community whether it’s the park, church or birthday parties etc. Work life balance has also been improved for both myself and my husband. He has hired another employee which will take a tremendous load off of him. My son has been doing awesome and has recently turned a corner with requesting things without prompts (6-7 word requests)! His diet is still expanding and I’m proud to say we added hard boiled eggs and cheese to round out his dairy component that was lacking."

"I am so glad to have taken this workshop. It made me aware of my stressors and some unhealthy coping behaviors. I have since made some changes and feel better than ever. My daughter is well and she and I have become more active and enjoy long walks. Our stress level is lower now and our health has improved significantly. Thank you again!"
