LIKE A LOT OF WOMEN, I GREW UP THINKING THAT I WASN’T THIN OR BEAUTIFUL ENOUGH. DID YOU EVER FEEL LIKE THAT?
I not only hated how I looked on the outside, but I also hated how I felt inside. I remember having raging emotions that seemed too intense, irrelevant, or silly, so I taught myself to ignore them by stuffing them down with food.
In my late 20’s, after years of overeating, dieting, starving myself, bingeing, obsessing over my weight, and being addicted to laxatives, I knew something had to change. I decided I couldn’t live my life like this anymore. I felt too depressed and disconnected from my body, I had zero success with love, and I barely ever got my period.
Once I made a decision to change, the right people appeared in my life. I worked with various teachers, healers, and mentors who showed me a new way. They taught me how to listen to my body, how to give myself what I need, how to eat with self-kindness, how to honor and embrace my femininity, and how to see my own beauty reflected back at me in the mirror. I am forever grateful for everyone who has helped me on this path.
Now I help women in the same way I’ve been helped. I serve as a support, a friend, an agent of change for women who know in their hearts they are ready for a new, sustainable way to relate to food and their bodies.
Let the journey begin.
