I’ve been there: sucking in my stomach, feeling guilty about dessert and working out way past my limits.
I’ve also come out the other side: adoring my stomach rolls, eating dessert with zero guilt and moving my body in ways that feel amazing.
I’ve gone from hating my body hate to body love, and my life has completely transformed.
It all started when...
I was a people-pleasing, sensitive kid growing up in the 90s when fat was feared and diets were all the rage. Somewhere along the way - like many women - I started believing beautiful = skinny (among other things), so the obsession with weighing myself started early.
Throughout my childhood and teen years, hating on my body was pretty typical. My thighs were too muscular, lips too thin, butt too jiggly ... etc. etc. Despite this, I was able to function normally (with the occasional body-hating breakdown), especially since most girls my age didn't like their bodies either. In a weird way, this was normal.
But it all caught up to me in college. As a way to escape overwhelming stress and anxiety, I started obsessing over my weight. Like, obsessing. It was all I thought about! This was familiar territory, so under-eating and overexercising quickly gave me a really false sense of comfort.
This went on for years until finally, I got fed up.
I was so tired of freaking out over food, analyzing calories and battling my body. I was anxious, depressed and at rock bottom.
I didn't know how to get there, but I knew deep down there had to be a better way to live.
And I’m so grateful that's where my body-loving journey began.
It’s surreal yet so right that I’m now helping women learn to fall in love with their bodies and feel free around food, just like I did.
My coaching is a culmination of everything I’ve learned over the years from incredible mentors, personal experience and my certification in holistic nutrition. It’s everything I wish I knew years ago, and I’m so excited and thankful I get to share it with people like you.
It's my life’s purpose.
