Cultivating a Safe Community

At TheHealthyWeighOut, one of our dreams is to cultivate a community of like-bodied, like-minded people who provide non-judgmental support for each other throughout their journey of change. We are proud to say that this dream is coming true!

There are many avenues we utilize to bring people together into our emotionally-safe community:

Monthly “Huddle” events: Open to the public, these monthly events cover a wide range of issues related to emotional and binge eating. From informative lectures to group art projects to movie watching, Huddles provide a great opportunity for people to come together to learn, meet others who “get” it, and become a part of an emotionally-safe, body-safe community. All are welcome to attend these informative and helpful events; if you might like to attend a future Huddle, please follow our Meetup group (it’s free to sign up!) to stay up-to-date on upcoming events. 

Private Facebook Group: This bonus is offered to all current and past participants of our 6-week Emotional & Binge Eating Program. It’s a wonderfully helpful resource for our participants and alum to stay in touch with other people who “get” it. The group is very active, sharing inspirational quotes and photos, seeking and giving support, and asking questions about various issues related to emotional and binge eating. 

Interpersonal Therapy Process Group: This aftercare service is available to all alum of our 6-Week Emotional & Binge Eating Program. With a focus on helping people resolve the underlying issues that drive them to overeat, this therapeutic group (hosted at our parent company’s center, A New Beginning) is a powerful and effective component to our participants’ transformation out of emotional and binge eating. Facilitated by the program’s Co-Founder, Dr. Julie T. Anné, this group meets weekly; participants are invited to be a part of the group for as long as they want following successful completion of our program. 

Here are some photos from various events and gatherings in our body-safe community (to preserve participants’ confidentiality, images of participants and alum are not shown):


At TheHealthyWeighOut, we are very proud to be creating an atmosphere of hope, inspiration, and SUPPORT for people who so often struggle alone.  We hope to see you at an upcoming event, or perhaps, in our office for one of our many services offered through our center.  For more information regarding upcoming events and services, please call  480-941-6999.
