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.
And I did it well.
My private clients and participants in my online courses regularly tell me that working with me has changed their life in innumerable ways.
I’ve been told I’m the next best thing to a diet pill and the freedom my clients experience exceeds even years of therapy!
Yes. It’s an honour to do this work.
And part of the work is my belief that LIFE IS CONSTANTLY GIVING US FEEDBACK. Take the feedback and apply it, and you’re on a winner. IGNORE the feedback and defy it, and you’re not going to like where you end up.
Depression and anxiety are real issues
Thinking that you can journal, tap or push through them is not a sustainable solution.
Just like emotional eating which at the core, is never about the food, emotional exhaustion has to be dealt with at the ROOT.
YOU CAN CHANT YOUR POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS UNDER A FULL MOON WITH PIXIES DANCING AT YOUR FEET TILL THE COWS COME HOME… It’s still a bandaid solution.
So, in the interests of self love, my community and you, my family… I’m taking some time off.
Time to REST.
Time to RESTORE.
Time to REVIVE.
What does this mean for you?
TO MY PRIVATE CLIENTS
Here’s what will change for you… nada. Private coaching is my calling and I have always been, am now, and will CONTINUE to be there for you 💯. Seeing you succeed is my mission and I love you xoxo
TO THOSE IN MY ONLINE PROGRAMS
Watching you transform week after week, not only in weight loss, but more importantly, in FREEDOM around food, BELIEF in yourself and DEEP AND LONG LASTING JOY brings me more pleasure that you will ever know. I am humbled that my courses continue to transform lives globally and my level of commitment will not change.
TO THOSE WHO FOLLOW MY BLOGS
Not a single spicy peanut will change for you. Providing you with free, life changing content, recipes and videos each week brings me more joy than calorie-free gelati. The blogs will continue to nestle in your inbox each week like clockwork (P.S. that’s “nestle”, not Nestlè)
TO THOSE FOR WHOM I AM A MENTOR
You can continue to reach out to me anytime.
I LOVE chatting with you and guiding you to success and freedom in all areas of your life. I will continue to be here for you all the way!
TO MY SOCIAL MEDIA FAMILY
You may see a little less of my over the coming few months, but rest assured that I’m already devising an evil plan (oops, did I say that outloud?) to shower you with SPECTACULAR FREEBIES, OFFERS and FREE COACHING LIVESTREAMS upon my SPECTACULAR return.
If you have taken the time to read this all the way to the end, thank you.
And if you take nothing else away from this message, know this…
1. As long as you live in this physical body, you have a responsibility to look after it (P.S. chocolate consumption still mandatory hahaa!)
2. It’s never your situation that is causing you to suffer. It’s what you’re TELLING YOURSELF about the situation that is causing you to suffer.
3. YOU deserve the same love and kindness that you freely share with others.
Sending you all chocolate coated smooches and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Hope you get some well deserved R & R, I have enjoyed reading your journey with your eating habits and how you have conquered this to be the person you are today. I look forward to your return. Take care. Barb
Thank you so much for your kind words. The blog will absolutely still be tap dancing its way into your inbox each week and I so appreciate your support.
Sending you so much love!
