Are The Words “You Look Thin” Music To Your Ears?

Are The Words “You Look Thin” Music To Your Ears?

If I asked you what would be the biggest compliment anyone could give to you, what would you say? For me, I’d say the most flattering comment someone could say to me would be that I inspire people and change lives. But it wasn’t too long ago that if I was asked this same question, I’d have a very different answer. A few years ago, the best thing anyone could say to me? You look skinny. You look thin. You look like you lost weight. It’s actually crazy to me when I think about it.  Any time someone told me I looked

Think Eating Less Will Make You Skinnier? Think Again.

Think Eating Less Will Make You Skinnier? Think Again.

We are surrounded by messages that tell us we have to cut back on calories to lose weight. We’ve been brainwashed to think the less we eat, the skinnier we will be. And our society applauds those who eat like birds. How many times have you heard… I haven’t eaten anything since breakfast. All I ate today was a bagel. I skipped lunch because I had to get some things done. I ran errands all day and only had a cereal bar. We secretly laud ourselves when we “achieve” a day of eating very little. And when we want to

What to Do When Going Out to Eat is Stressful

Going out to eat used to send me into a panic. Here is how the situation usually panned out: 1. I knew I had dinner plans, so I would try not to eat that much during the day because I wanted to save up the calories and “splurge” at dinner. I was usually so worried about keeping my food in control at dinner (i.e. not binging), that I was anxious about it all day (and usually ended up overeating at dinner) OR 2. In anticipation of going out to eat, I obsessively planned out exactly what I was going to

How To Make Peace With The Scale

How To Make Peace With The Scale

If there is one change over the years that’s brought huge shifts in my life, I would have to say it’s been my diligent effort to let go of my obsession with weighing myself. I used to be a slave to the scale. I weighed myself in the morning, after a big meal, after I worked out, after dinner, after anything really. What I saw on the scale dictated how I felt about myself, where I stood in comparison to others, and if I was “acceptable” enough to wear certain clothes. My main theme=the lower the number, the better I

Beat the Bathing Suit Blues

Beat the Bathing Suit Blues

Well, we are smack dab in the middle of bathing suit season. I would say for about 85% of the women I know, summer comes with great excitement, and a twinge of “ugh, that means I have to be seen in a bathing suit”… It’s crazy to think about how many emotions “being seen in a bathing suit” brings up for us. Next time you’re heading to the pool or beach, remember these 3 things: Find a suit you feel amazingly comfortable in. Finding a bathing suit that really fits your body is a game-changer. When you are wearing a suit

I have two awesome announcements for you today. 1. Healing From Within has OFFICIALLY opened its doors! I’m super excited for this program to finally be shared with the world. I began my business with this idea and it is finally come to fruition!  It is an 8-week online course that dives deep into some of the most common themes around food and eating struggles.  I finished my beta-launch of this program with some amazing woman, and it was truly a game-changer-both for them and me. Cristina, one of the gals in the program summed it up perfectly: “This program has truly been wonderful
