I was worried I would gain weight if I went off my usual plan and attended Katie’s retreat. I was relieved to find the food she provided to be WLS friendly, healthy, and well prepared.
Much to my relief, she and her staff were flexible and understanding. They seemed to really care that I felt satisfied and safe when it came to the food. I tried some new foods, and I also felt supported in having the snacks I was accustomed to (I brought them with me).
The funny thing is, as time has gone on--and I’ve attended five of Katie’s retreats--I have focused less on the food and more on Katie’s teachings that relate to developing self-awareness, learning how to set boundaries, and getting my needs met in life, so that I can continue to do well with my WLS.
I don’t earn a huge salary. I work in the public schools. But I have found Katie’s retreats to be worth every penny. They are an important investment in myself and have kept me on a healthy, evolving path.
