Welcome Mary! That offer sounds great. You get a real taste for what Shrink Yourself is all about and you can then decide if you want to continue online. I agree the interactive part is great. I found the 12 week commitment a bit challenging- I like to go at my own pace which I enjoy more with the book. There are folks here who do the on line part I am sure they will stop in and give their thoughts.
We are all learning that emotions drive so much of what we do. We can learn the best rules about nutrition and 'what to eat' but without reigning in our emotions it seems like having a job without a purpose.
Good luck to you on your journey

I just started the introductory offer for the on-line program. You get 3 sessions for free and 14 days to decide if you want to continue and pay $39.95/month for the 12 week program.
So far, I like it because it's interactive and has really nailed it in terms of identifying some of my issues.
At first, I thought that my biggest problem was food addiction. At times, I can't identify any certain emotion...I just crave sugar and high-fat foods all the time. But the second article in Emotional Eating 101 states that food addiction is also emotional eating. I'm interested to learn more about that.
I don't have the book yet, but plan on getting it. Is there anyone else doing the on-line, and do you find it beneficial or would just the book do the same thing? The on-line is a little pricey, but I'm willing to pay if it helps because nothing else has so far.
