On Monday, May 9th, Murfreesboro Medical Clinic's Weight Loss & Wellness department hosted a workshop offering attendees information and encouragement on how to better manage eating habits.

Guest speaker, Kim Rush, LPC, MHSP, is the Vice President of Operations for Volunteer Behavioral Health Care System and Director of the Guidance Center in Rutherford County. Rush spoke empathetically and interactively with crowd. She asked questions such as, "What do you tell yourself [about your appearance]?" and, "Do you think you are worth it?" She continued to share her personal opinion by concluding, "Eating habits are effected more by emotional state than physical hunger." Personal stories of weight loss success and defeats were given by the speaker, making her appeal to the audience authentic and genuine. Rush shared that her ultimate success was found in her journey when she decided to stop with the "yo-yo dieting," and began to consistently make small steps towards a healthier life. She chose to speak positively to herself, changed her perspective, and pounds dropped in couples until she ultimately became 100 pounds lighter.

Encouragement beamed around the room, and agreements were made that they, too were worth the fight to care for themselves properly.
