Living with Depression & Anxiety
____________________

THIS IS THE HARDEST POST I'VE EVER HAD TO WRITE...
For the past three years I have poured my heart and soul into my business, my community and serving those I love most... YOU

What that meant for me was endless 18 hour days, pushing myself relentlessly so that I can serve at a greater level.

And I did it well.

My private clients and participants in my online courses regularly tell me that working with me has ...

7 Lessons Learned from Binge Eating
____________________
 

The truth?... I'm not really happy with my body. There. I said it.

In fact, there are maaaany days when I just am so done with this whole thing I've got going on with food.

Why can't I just feel normal around food?

Why is my eating so "good" for days, months, weeks at a time and then... BOOM! I take a one-way trip to Binge City and the Mayor of the town, who wears donuts for pants and has M&M's where his eyes sho...

You follow the formula. Eat this. Drink that. Weigh. Measure. Push through. And from the outside looking in, it really do...

6 Steps to Self Love and Weight Loss
____________________
 

When I was 25 kilos above my natural body weight, LOSING that weight was easy compared to the greater challenge of loving myself.

I mean, how could I possibly love myself when I hated what I saw in the mirror each day? Each time I passed a reflective surface, I launched into a mental critique of my body...

Thighs? Touching (eew) and wobbly.

Stomach? Bulging.

Booty? Uh, let's not even go there.

ARE YOU HIDING BEHIND YOUR WEIGHT?

Are You Hiding Behind Your Weight?
__________________________
 

 

For most of my life, I was hiding.

As a child I hid behind my mother’s skirt because I was shy. As a teen I hid behind trying to please everybody because I felt insecure. And as an adult, I hid behind denial.

Denial that I was making irresponsible food choices.

Denial that I had the power to change it but chose not to.

Denial that shoving food in my mouth in a junk food frenzy could be considered ...

3 Steps to Believe in Yourself Again
___________________________
 

Emotional eating is a tough nut to crack (unless it's coated in chocolate, then it's deliciously easy)

I’ve been underweight and I’ve been overweight; but at no weight was I happy.

At my heaviest, I weighed somewhere in the range of 75 to 79 kilos (I stopped weighing myself after 75kg because if I refuse to look at it, it's not real... isn't that how it works?)

At my lowest weight, I was around 45...
