On Sept. 29 one of our community outreach coordinators posted thoughts about a new children's book coming out called "Maggie Goes on a Diet." (Read that post by clicking here.)
Recently, The Emily Program Foundation's Advocacy Group used their voices to educate the author of "Maggie Goes on a Diet" about the harm the book could cause. The Emily Program Foundation posted a blog outlining their advocacy efforts.

It's an example of advocacy at its finest.
The below is from a FB post by Delphine Fieberg:
A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"
It’s hard to believe that a week of school has already come and gone. I love fall and back-to-school. I always feel a bit of excitement when I walk down the aisles of Target at the end of July and see the school supplies. There is something about new folders and notebooks that takes me back to being a kid with endless excitement about school. I miss that innocence.

Many people experience physical changes in their bodies during the process of recovery. Your process may require weight restoration in order to get your body from a state of depletion back to health. Or, it may require you to accept your body where it’s at right now, and to let go of your desire to change your body shape and weight.
For the third year, staff and clients from The Emily Program are enjoying planting and harvesting a variety of vegetables in the three plots around the 2265 Como location. So far this year, there has been a plethora of peas, a load of lettuce, and enough basil for pesto all year round.
If you have a green thumb (and even if you don’t) the garden can be enjoyed be all. Feel free to pick any of the ripe vegetables and herbs out of the garden at the 2265 Como office for your personal use. It would be a shame to see the efforts go to waste.
