Although I lost 32 pounds following Leslie on Instagram, so many psychological changes have happened since joining Friends With Benefits. Leslie helped me discover blind spots in my eating habits and allowed me to see specific areas where I still needed to improve. And while I never had an “eating disorder,” Leslie helped me see I had a disordered relationship with food. A lot of her recommendations were counterintuitive and included “hard pills to swallow,” but in the long run it has been much easier than yo-yo dieting. I’m excited to experience MORE mental and physical progress as I continue to move forward through the Friends With Benefits program.
