Letting go of dieting and the constant pursuit of fixing your body will give you so much freedom. No more guilt or shame from eating certain foods, no more food drama, no more deprivation and restriction and no more connecting your worth to the number on the scale.
Sitting in science class in third grade, the boy sitting next to me told me that I was fat. I had always felt a little different from my classmates...I was introverted and shy...but the size and shape of my body wasn’t something I thought much about as a seven year old. And I knew that being "fat" wasn't a good thing.
His words became my mantra for nearly two decades. My inner dialogue created body image issues, low self-esteem, emotional eating, constantly comparing myself to others and feeling like I was worthless.
I believed that losing weight was the key to my happiness, so I tried everything - diets, diet pills, starving (which always led to bingeing) and over exercising. To me, food was “good” or “bad.” When I ate “bad” foods, I felt ashamed of myself. That shame led to overeating even more to cope with my feelings.
My disordered eating and negative body image consumed my life. It took many years, but I finally realized that my pursuit of thinness was not leading to a healthy life.
So how did I break free from dieting, and learn how to manage the negative beliefs about my body? I discovered Intuitive Eating and the Health at Every Size philosophy.
I'm now on a continued journey of self-acceptance, learning about the impact of weight bias and promoting body acceptance.
I help women break free from dieting, and create a confident, nourished and empowered life through coaching, yoga and mindfulness.
When you stop fixating on your body and food, you can create a fuller life.
I will help you:
- Recognize fatphobia and weight bias
- Shift your focus from weight to wellness
- Begin to connect more to your body
- Learn to trust your body more
- Cultivate more respect and love for your body
- Accept bodies of all sizes
