How Two Strangers Conquered Their Eating Struggles Together With Joyce & Brenda

One of the best things to know about your struggle to healing your relationship with food is this: you DON’T have to go it alone. Today Jessi is joined by two FFM alums, Joyce and Brenda. At the start of their journey, the two were total strangers but after joining the program, they became accountability partners and instantly clicked. In this episode, they chat about how the FFM has changed their lives and what it’s taught them about themselves. You’ll hear how they’ve changed their relationship with food, how their friendship has evolved (the two even met each other in person for the first time last year), and their advice for others who are struggling with their relationship with food and body. Brenda even decided to start her own podcast called the RAWing Twenties Podcast which launches February 3rd so make sure you check it out!
