I know you.
You’re smart, hard-working, fun, and have so many things going for you. Maybe it’s a great job, a loving family, a kick-ass social life, or all of the above. On the outside, your life seems great.
Yet, on the inside, you’re miserable.
You’re sick of having thoughts of dieting consume your days. You’re tired of struggling with your weight, battling those “I hate my body” thoughts, and feeling like you just can’t get a handle on your food and eating.
You feel like a failure each time you lose weight and gain it back. You just want to eat “normally” and feel at ease in your body.
You’ve tried everything and nothing has worked.
Are you ready to stop struggling and find freedom around food, feel comfortable in your skin, and release that weight for good? I can help you get there.

I spent probably 20 years of my life wishing I was thinner. But no matter how much weight I lost or gained, I still never thought my body looked “right”. I always wanted to change it or "fix" it, so that I would look different than how I was.
So much of my mental energy and thoughts over the years have been consumed with thinking about my body and wanting to be thinner.

When I'm a different size, I'll sign up for that dance class I've always wanted to take.

It may bring a moment of elation: we fit into that dress, we look great in a pair of jeans, or we don't mind being naked as much.
We still have to deal with life. We still want to stress eat when we get angry at our partner. The tub of ice cream is still our go-to coping mechanism. And we still hear the call of the cookies when conflict arises and we don't want to deal with it.
We lose the weight, but we are still us. With the same habits, behaviors and reactions.
This desperate "wishing to be thinner" only derails the journey; the real work is about going inside and looking at WHY we do what we do with food. (But that's for another blog post!)
