This event was unlike any other. It was intimate, sophisticated and so much fun. I met a lot of amazing women as we experienced food for what felt like the first time. We were able to consciously eat and really think about what we were putting into our bodies. It definitely felt empowering. What an amazing day yesterday was.
— Ashley
 
Sharing openly with other incredible women was the highlight of the event. For the first time in a long time, I was able to truly enjoy my meal without guilt or anxiety, and I was able to listen to when my body felt done. These dinners are a transformative experience where I learned I am not alone in my struggle with food and confidence. I can’t wait for the next event and the one after that... The love we have for ourselves can only continue to grow!

Being part of Hello Beautiful Health’s Divine Dinner Series has reminded me of the power that women have in their hearts, mind and body. In addition, it was certainly a life changing experience. Being obese/overweight my entire childhood and even the beginning of my graduate school years, food was my one obsession. It was the item I used to protect myself from others, to let all my fears, worries and anxiety go away. During those years food was my best friend the one I know would not fail and would never judge me. I learned I wasn’t really enjoying food to fuel my body I was using food to fool myself and hide my problems. As time went by, I was certainly damaging myself when I had reached a weight my legs and knees couldn’t handle. At the end of graduate school, I knew I certainly needed to fix my relationship with food to one where there was harmony, balance and fun. Being a part of Hello Beautiful Health was that reminder for me... of the importance of building a healthy and balanced relationship with food but most importantly a reminder of the importance of loving ourselves as women, our body, our souls and our minds.Thank you Marisa and Hannah for being that reminded for me.

What an amazing night!!! I had such an amazing time! Thank you ladies that shared and I learned so much! Opened my eyes to just how much I forget about me. Given my job is so much about others, which I love, I got to be with me (& other beautiful women). I look forward to more!
