I believe that each body has its own story. My story is this - In 2008, after a trauma in college, I gained 50lbs within a 6-month time period. To friends and family, I had gained weight and just needed to eat less and workout more. They didn’t know or understand what was happening beneath the surface. The physicality of wearing my disordered eating for everyone to see was uncomfortable, shameful, and embarrassing.
I wanted the weight off but I didn’t know how to get out of the cycle that I had gotten myself stuck in. You know the story - you decide to go on a diet, you restrict, you’re “good," and you lose weight - quickly. I lost and gained back 30-35 lbs AT LEAST 5 times during my twenties. But it was never sustainable. I would always “fail,” feel awful about myself, and then binge - because what was the point, right? Then, you guessed it, I gained all the weight back and felt like a complete failure.
It wasn’t until I got pregnant with my first daughter that I confronted my relationship with food, slowly learning that there aren’t “good” and “bad” foods, and how to listen to my body and what it needs. It was a lot of work, but it was the most rewarding experience of my life. With time, patience, and forgiveness, I slowly lost the weight and kept it off (in a healthy, sustainable way)— but it wasn’t about the weight loss. For me, it was learning to give UP that control around food that actually allowed me to discover wellness that worked for me. This is my story. Your story is different and my role as your coach is to help uncover your unique path to health and wellness, helping guide you to discover what works for you and then implement it successfully into your life.
