I struggled all my life with weight. Chubby kid, overweight adult, and not much better in between. I felt shackled to my problem and drowning in dogged shame. In my youth, I was teased by friends and family and certain that strangers judged me. I was afraid to eat in public; feeling undeserving of food and that it would draw more criticism. Basically I felt alien to this world and watching “normal” people enjoy a life I so desperately wanted to partake in.
The Moment it Changed
Then one day - a few months after I turned 40 - I ran into a friend at the gym who had lost a noticeable amount of
weight and looked great. I bugged him for months to tell me his secret. Finally, he agreed to tell me about his journey and, as a result, introduced me to a method to finally lose my unwanted weight. I couldn’t believe how simple it was. Not easy, but simple.
By employing this method, I lost 60 lbs. in 6 months and got down to a weight I had never been in my entire adult life.
But along with the joys of a normal size came the realization that I had - all along - been my own harshest judge, setting myself apart, and allowing a feeling of separateness to become embedded in my psyche. My work was not only to lose the weight and keep it off, but to let go of these old notions that I thought were ‘facts.’
Living the Solution Daily AND Sharing it with You!
Today, I remain devoted to the practice of this method that engages the mind, body, and spirit. And now I want to share this journey with you.
I received my certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition* where I learn innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.
