“I highly recommend the BFYB Program led by Stephanie Armer. Stephanie is a supportive and skilled facilitator with so much insight, compassion and sincerity. Her warmth and wisdom made it feel safe to be vulnerable and share and in doing so I gained so much more.
She is someone who meets you where you’re at and really gets it!
I feel so fortunate to have joined this program and I’ve gained a whole new perspective that is so crucial to recovery!”
“I highly recommend the BFYB Group facilitated by Steph Armer. My perspective and attitude toward my body have changed for the better and I must admit it took me by surprise. Who would have thought that self-compassion would be the answer to healing my disordered eating? I knew that the numerous diet attempts weren’t working so I was willing to give this a try. The meditation practices in the group are so loving and gentle and I experienced so much compassion from Steph as she led the group and from the group members as we shared our experiences. I am treating myself better and I am finally making progress. I feel confident for the first time that I will be ok. I have recommended the BFYB group to all the women in my life because I feel so strongly that the self-compassionate approach is a game-changer!” —
“I’ve learned so much from you and our group that I will always be grateful for. Your group completely changed the course of my 2022 ❤.”
“I was skeptical about what this group could give me that other forms of help couldn’t, but after the first session, that skepticism faded. I am truly learning to appreciate and be compassionate towards my body and all the things it does for me. I’m so grateful for the space and community this group has given me. I am learning to fall in love with the person I am and growing into.”
“Working with a Steph and our group, I felt my awareness and acceptance grow throughout the 8 weeks. Steph was able to lead us into discussions that looked at how our own behaviors and thoughts could be shifted by being more aware and present in each situation. I liked that we had ‘homework’ to focus on and readings prior to each session. Steph had a very safe place for us all to share and learn from one another and to provide me with more tools to progress in the future.”
“I’m in my 40s and I’ve struggled with body image issues, yo-yo dieting and restrictive eating my entire life. I had horrible self talk and no compassion for myself. I was alway seeking reasons, excuses, answers for why my body is the way it is and I often felt hopeless… like something was wrong with me and I was never going to figure it out.
I could wake up feeling good about myself, step on a scale, and then immediately beat myself up, no matter the number. I never lost enough or always gained too much. I could be feeling really great about how I looked when I left the house, but then I’d see a picture of myself and immediately get depressed. I’d see someone else with a body that I wanted and I’d feel my soul shrinking.
I signed up for Steph’s BFYB program because I had reached a place where I felt I had tried ‘everything else’ and I was sick of feeling so bad about myself. And to be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect… but I thought… why not?? What can it hurt??
It’s been a year since I graduated from the program and I can honestly say that this has been the only year in my life that I’ve had a healthy relationship with my body, with food, and with my self image. I am free.
I can be present, I can be in my body, I can handle struggles and challenges as they arise, I have the tools to be successful, and most importantly… I feel comfortable and confident simply by being me.
Because of the program and the process, not only do I feel great in my body, I take care of my body, I love my body and I feel the best (physically and emotionally) that I’ve ever felt. My confidence is through the roof and I am so grateful I invested in myself in this way. I can not recommend BFYB enough.”
