A little more about me…

When I was 320 lbs, after gaining my weight back post-Weight Loss Surgery, I did not believe I would ever get a handle on food.

I did not know how to manage myself. I did not have any idea that there would be a way to lose weight. I absolutely did not want to ever count calories, or anything else. I felt helpless. I felt dismissed. I thought of myself as a lost cause.

It felt awful. I hated myself so much. I hated my life. And I ate to deal with everything life offered me. I used to assume people did not care what I had to say because I was fat.

I felt so much shame because I gained the weight back. Because nothing changed after bariatric surgery.

So when I tell you I know this struggle, I really know this struggle.

That is why I am doing this work. Because there is another way to live. If you want to finally lose the weight without fear, panic, worry.

Because I am living this life.

I dropped all of that limiting crap I used to tell myself every day — habitually.

I do not tolerate certain behavior anymore.

You can lose the weight, and gain emotional freedom. Just because you want to. You do not need a diagnosis to change your life. You can just decide you’ve had enough of the current life experience you are having. Let’s try on another way to live and be in the world.

Start trusting yourself now. To change. This decision does not need to be hard. And you can make it because you want to LOVE yourself for the first time.

I offer healing. Love. Peace. For you. From yourself. You can do this.

Message me today. You are worthy of more. You know you are.

Trusting Myself

I used to believe — and accept about myself — that I was just someone who was inconsistent.

Say one thing. Do the opposite.

My past is filled with holes and gaps. Times in my life where I would really be meaning well but would fail miserably at meeting those expectations.

I knew it at the time too, as I spoke the words, that I was not going to follow through. And yet, I would continue agreeing. Saying I would. For sure.

No self-integrity. No commitment to my word. I never had my own back.

Until one day I decided I did. I decided I was changing. I wanted to show up for myself in a way that was more meaningful. And it started with me.

I started following through doing what I said I would. For myself. Not for anyone else.

Making that small tweak changed everything. I started to show up differently for my family.

It is not always perfect. Self-integrity is a practice. It is not something that is ever perfect. It is noticing when you are out of alignment and intentionally deciding to get back to honoring your word.

The urge for me to not want to follow through is still there. It is just a pattern in my brain that I am working on extinguishing. It is neutral until I decide it makes me a bad person — which I don’t.

As I work on my own self-trust, I am able to extend that to my family and friends, too. After all, if I trust myself then I know I can handle whatever gets thrown my way. And I mean that to the very worst case scenario your brain can take it. I can handle anything life throws at me. And I can thrive because I choose to have the fullest human experience I am meant to in this lifetime.

You can, too.

Lap Band Removed

I had my lap band removed in 2017. No revision.

My surgeon must have asked me 1,000 times plus a dozen on the day of the procedure, if I wanted to reconsider and have a revision.

I mean, I guess he wanted to help me the way he knows how.

It felt terrible in the realization that my weight was the same as it was on the day it was placed in 2010 — 292 lbs.

I had lost 60 lbs that first year and my weight slowly crept back up.

During my first pregnancy in 2015, my weight climbed to 320 lbs.

As a new mom, I was desperate to figure out a way to lose the weight for good and not count calories, or points. To just live. The way other people do. And not feel out of control around food.

I started to consider that I was wrong about all of the self-loathing going on inside my head. I was wrong about my worth. I was wrong about what kind of mother I wanted to be.

The band was a terrible way of life for me. I think there were about a dozen meals total that I made it through without having to excuse myself throughout the entire 7 years I had it. (And if you had the band, you know what I mean.)

And after a year or so of practicing a very introductory, quiet and muted version of self-love, I decided I liked myself too much to keep the band.

So when the doctor kept asking me over and over if I was sure I did not want a revision — I really was NOT sure at the time — but I had a tiny bit of compassion for myself mixed with determination to figure this out for once and for all.

When I was in high school, as the tallest girl, with the loudest laugh, and the most uncomfortable out of everyone, I vowed to myself that once I figured out this weight issue, I was going to teach it to the world.

Well, world, I have figured it out. And I am ELATED to teach you about it. To break the chains and lose this weight.

I’m down 60 lbs. I have 100 lbs to go to get to my goal weight. I have regained about 15 lbs over the past month. This experience of regain has taught me SO MUCH about what I am teaching. The shame cycle is sitting right next to me ready to go. But the shame cycle is NOT going to get me to goal. You already know that, too.

I love these human brains of ours. Let’s do this together.

Iā€™m offering FREE coaching to a limited number of women who have had weight loss surgery.

Message me for details and to discuss if you qualify.

šŸ‘‰šŸ¼ Please share with anyone you know who has had weight loss surgery and are struggling with regain.

There is hope. I offer results. šŸ’„
