Let’s talk about you and your pursuit of living your best life.

You listen to podcasts and Oprah, watch MarieTV, and have read Rachel Hollis’ books. Maybe you’ve even been to Rise or another conference and made some amazing friends. Perhaps you’ve even joined a group coaching program.

But still, you’re in the patterns you want to change. You’re not even sure how to get started or what to do next. You’re in those giant Facebook groups, and you feel lost in the sea of thousands of other people.

You keep showing up for the gym, and then fall off after several weeks. Some days you drink your water, and other days you don’t.

I get it. I’ve been there. I know how frustrating it can be.

I have created a coaching program to lay the foundation that our favorite thought leaders don’t talk about. Or they mention to just think positive thoughts without any instructions about how to go about doing that.

This program is NOT fluff. We don’t “just think positively.” In fact, it is one-on-one which means you get all of my undivided attention to focus on you and your life. We talk about everything. And I teach you exactly why things are the way they are. And together we work on the foundation of curating the life of your wildest dream. Health, business, relationships — no stone goes unturned. This is the life coaching program to completely up-level your existence. You can have it all. But you can’t just keep reading books and making wishes.

This is the work. With my completely support, you CAN do this. I’ve helped many clients completely transform their lives and I can help you do the same. From anxiety, worry, self-loathing, defeat to victorious, calm, certain, self-love.

This is the ultimate transformation. It is my deepest honor to present you with this tremendous opportunity.

Message me today to set up a free 1-hour Consultation Call. On the call, we talk about why your life is exactly the way it is right now and what you would LOVE your future to look like. If we are a good fit and I know I can help you, I will then make you an offer to get to work in this total transformational program where I teach you exactly the HOW.

This is exactly what you’ve been hoping for. I’m delighted to grant you this wish.

It is my highest and greatest good to introduce you to your highest and greatest good.

Shame on Shame

There is no shame in feeling shame. Please stop judging yourself.

Consider your story around shame is to be that of a cactus, and you’re hugging it tightly.

Ouch.

I’d like to invite you to put down the cactus.

You’re worthy of putting down the cactus.

I can show you how.

My Offer For You

Shame is all consuming.

Shame feels hopeless, helpless, inescapable.

The avoidance of shame just strengthens those deep and heavy feelings.
It is impossible to set any goals, to move forward, when you are saddled with shame.

I have created a life changing, comprehensive program to introduce space, love, compassion in order to process and move through the heaviness.

Shame does not have to come along with you, riding shotgun, into 2020.

I’m here for you and your dreams. Shame free.

It’s Time

I started coach certification in October of 2018. This last year has been a tremendous season of growth in some ways — and with that, the patterns of more-of-the-same have become glaringly obvious; no longer able to be ignored.

In my life, this is neither the first nor third attempt to lose my weight publicly. The growth I’m faced with right now is to set a boundary. I’ve always been an “open book”, and for the first time in my life I’m not only recognizing this about me — but I’m implementing. I am setting the boundary. To honor myself. To take back some privacy. And to do the real work of active healing. It’s been a lot of passive healing as an attempt to “do the impossible” — publicly.

It needed to play out this way so that I could see the pattern and recognize that this way does not work for me. As it has never been the way that works for me. And for me to find the way that will work, must be a totally new-to-me way of doing.

Truthfully, I’m no longer consumed with doubt or fear. Because for the first time in my life I know exactly how to lose weight, and how I will hit my goal of wearing a size 6. The journey is to figure out what I need from myself that has been missing all along. This is part of the “how”. I’m sure there will be more “how’s” that will come to light but being in the vision of this how right now is profound.

With this shift, I am making another change. Weight coaching will still be near and dear to my heart. It may even be something I come back to in the future. I am making a transition.

I am the shame coach. I know shame all too well. I have felt it in many avenues in my life. Weight just being one. I am lit up to create this offer to the coaching world.

Shame is something we are taught. I am setting out to teach the undoing of shame. Because shame is optional. And because life without shame is filled with possibility…

Procrastinating

Over the last year I have become someone completely different, and in some ways — not different at all.

I can see clearly the patterns that have surfaced where I sabotage or resist change. It is fascinating (and terrifying!) to even have this information.

About a month ago, (because of my awesome patterns I want to keep forever), I received this amazing prize from a giveaway my coach friend Simone did where everyone shared their favorite poem. It was awesome! And I love E. E. Cummings’ “I Carry Your Heart” so I threw my hat in the ring. And then randomly won!

I am psyched to have received this awesome book. THANK YOU Simone because it something new for me to bring into my awareness. And I am grateful for it all.

Thanks for your patience as I get out of my own way to do the things I tell myself I will. (How many of you can relate???)

I’m a work in progress, too. And I know that this will be true for life. And it is all good. I love knowing where my next up-level is. And how I imagine that slight change shifts everything else.

When we focus on one small thing, it is as if the tide rolls in — all the boats rise.

One small action has a ripple you can’t imagine, nor predict.

What will yours be today?

Is it Time to Level Up?

Do you feel like its time to up-level and evolve your relationship with food — and yourself?

For me, I did not realize this was something I could change.

I thought in order me to be any smaller, I had to count calories or have weight loss surgery. And even after I did undergo lap band surgery, I regained the weight.

It was not until I birthed my son 4 years ago yesterday, at a new highest weight, 320, that I felt called to truly resolve this ongoing and lifelong struggle.

And it is remarkable how much has changed within me since then. I am so grateful to myself for taking those truly scary and uncertain steps.

Bet on yourself. You can do this work. With me as your coach and mentor, you will feel supported and unstoppable.

This life is waiting for you. The one you’ve spent your entire life dreaming of.

I know exactly what it is like, because the only difference between you and I is that I went for it.

Are you coming?

My Beliefs

I believe in a world where women are given their own permission to be authentically themselves 100% of the time.

I believe that women who had bariatric surgery deserve the space to heal from believing about themselves that surgery was and is the only way.

I believe that you are worthy just because you exist in the world.

I believe that you matter.

I believe you are enough.

I believe you can put down the shame.

I believe you can heal emotionally.

And I believe that from this work we would do together, you would THRIVE and weight loss would be a direct byproduct.

And what if all of this were easy? I believe it is!

I’m ready. Are you?

Weight regain

You are not broken because you regained the weight.

There is nothing wrong with you.

You do NOT MUST feel shame because you regained the weight.

There is nothing wrong with you.

Working with me opens up a lot of doors for you and your life. Many more doors than you even realize.

Are you willing to be wrong about your self-loathing?

For me, I was skeptical at first. But I knew I needed to TRY something — anything.

Turns out you are a way better, nicer person than you have ever let yourself imagine.

Can you feel that relief?

Let’s get to work.

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.
