My heart breaks for any woman who struggles to accept and love the body God created her to thrive in. I was one of these women. I lived in comparison, insecurity, self-hatred, envy, control, obsession, guilt and shame. My journey to freedom began with redefining my self-worth and focusing on creating a healthy body instead of the perfect body.
Perfection is truly the lowest standard you can hold yourself to - because it's impossible to achieve. Progress, not perfection is how I live my life and I encourage my clients to do the same. I shoot straight, so if you are looking for another how-to diet or program to "do it" for you, this isn't it. Your freedom will require you to stop making excuses, redefine your past and take back your power. I know, because I had to walk this path myself.
My support is not for someone who is on the high of a diet that is “working” for them. Nope, this is for the person who can’t seem to find the right fit. You see your friends getting success doing intermittent fasting, and another friend who is rocking the paleo lifestyle and yet another who is counting macros. They all seem to be getting results (and you are not) and the temptation is high, but there is a voice inside of you whispering, “that isn’t the answer.”
The voice is coming from experience. It’s coming from the nostalgic and notorious high of starting a new diet, the elation of losing the first few pounds and then the devastating disappointment when your willpower fails and once again old patterns take over and the weight comes back. The voice speaks from the thousands and thousands of dollars you have wasted on short-lived attempts to an issue that is longstanding and deep-seeded and needs a lifelong solution. It speaks to the place inside of you that feels this whole body image and weight thing shouldn’t have to be so hard, so grueling, so isolating, so disappointing and so all-consuming.
