You are not weak, broken or powerless, when it comes to losing weight. You are just stuck in a trap created by the food you eat and the thoughts you think. It’s my job to give you the tools and support you need to get unstuck.
Sometimes just the thought of change can be enough to stop us from going after what we really want. I get it... because I lived it.
Intuitively knowing what to eat isn't the whole problem. For the most part, we know that pizza, chips, and chocolate are not what we would call health foods. So why is it even when we attempt to eat well and lose the weight, somehow we fail time and time again.
Here's the thing, I consider myself a smart woman, I had done the research, I understood how the body worked (after all I taught anatomy) so what was the deal, why was I still overweight. It was frustrating and I felt like a failure, over and over. I didn’t know it at the time but I was missing the most important piece of knowledge about what it is that causes us to change.
At my lowest point, over 70 lbs overweight, severely depressed, stay at home mom with 2 young children, stuck in an unhealthy and unhappy relationship I desperately wanted out.
I felt trapped, alone, helpless and in complete lack of control of my self and my circumstances.
It was at this point that one day while scrolling through Pinterest I came across a quote that read...
You can’t live the same year 80 times in a row and call it a life.
That line stopped me dead in my tracks. That’s exactly how it felt I was living or should I say not LIVING. I was just doing the same things over and over, the same unhealthy relationships, the same day to day events, and the same bad choices. I made up my mind then and there that I was not going to live one more day just going through the motions, that I was gonna find a way out.
So I dug deep and made the call to leave the relationship that was not healthy for me or my kids, which by the way was scary as hell. Then I got a job and took what savings I had and invested in me, which by the way was even scarier. I got a life coach who was able to help me see what I was missing and the steps I needed to take in order to start seeing the results I wanted. I was so moved by the experience and had grown so much, that I decide to go back to school and learn as much as I could about the mind and body.
I knew in my heart that there was a reason I had gone through these negative experiences. Having gone through life living, unhappy, unfulfilled, overweight, overwhelmed, unsuccessful and unable to cope. I was now able to look back at my old life with a sense of disbelief, that was ever my life.
I knew for certain that this was my life purpose. To help free other women who also see no way out, who also feel, alone, trapped, thinking this is as good as gets.
