7 Things You Should Know Before We Work Together
1. You will be learning the secret to weight loss that no one is telling you
For decades, I tried countless diets and high profile weight loss programs. I read dozens of books on how to lose weight. No matter where I looked or who I worked with, no one had the answer. However, I refused to give up. My tenacious journey brought me to a place of vibrant health and ease. I now feel confident and have a healthy connection to food. I'll be sharing with you what the weight loss industry, an industry that profits with every failed diet attempt, won't dare tell you.
2. You won't be told what to eat
How do I know what your body needs in a given moment? Only you know that. You are the one living in your body. Instead, I’m going to guide you to listen to you body. You will learn how to choose foods that serve you best and will learn the right amount to eat. I’m going to teach you how to trust yourself.
3. You are not alone
I've been there. I know exactly what it feels like to be standing in front of the food pantry, shoving endless amounts of food in my mouth, without any idea of how I got there or how to stop myself. I know what it feels like to be hungover from too much food. I'm not someone who just studied emotional overeating. I know the remorse and shame that comes after a binge. I know the seductive hope that comes from diets and restriction. And I know how to heal. I know what it’s like to make big changes in my life and no longer be ruled by food.
4. You'll be held accountable
You have some pretty well ingrained habits. The patterns around overeating, stress eating and emotional overeating have been in place for years, even decades. Changing these habits takes some effort and I’m here to make it easier for you. I’ll be in your corner, making sure that what you do every day supports the life you want to live.
5. You'll uncover what's causing you to overeat
Your food struggles have nothing to do with food. Eating those Oreos, cheese puffs, Ben and Jerry’s, or Hershey's Kisses, is NOT causing you to overeat. There is something happening for you under the surface. We won’t dwell there, but together, you will gain the insight to heal from it. When you heal from this, what has been driving you to eat, won’t be driving you anymore.
6. You'll understand a new approach to balance
I’m a Mom of 3 tween and teenagers. I’m also a CPA and run an accounting consulting business. I know what it’s like to be managing a day of doctor’s appointments, conference calls and piles of laundry. I know what it’s like to be driving all around town from one activity to the next, meeting deadlines and trying to get dinner on the table. It’s freakin’ crazy sometimes. I also know how to make big personal changes in my life while still living in my amazing and hectic life. It's not putting your head down and getting through it until Friday evening comes. It's not about working harder or faster. I'll share with you how to balance.
7. You'll be working with one crazy passionate woman
When I started healing from my struggles with food, I realized that all of my heartache, tears, empty hope, short lived successes, and frustrations that came before had a purpose. I’ve struggled so you don’t have to. My vision is to live in a time and place where women’s lives are no longer ruled by food and their hatred of their body. I’m here to coach you so you can live a life you love.
