I am dropping all expectations of myself. All assumptions that I continue my life the way I always have.

I am releasing the beliefs that I need to lose weight. Because I do not need to change my body at all.

I am letting go of the ideas that I need to be any different than I am right now. Because I already have everything I need in order to help my clients.

In getting really honest with myself, I realized how much I’ve been holding over my head. Keeping me stuck. Simply because that is my pattern.

I am used to having such big goals that I made myself pick up and carry with me. They are so heavy that eventually I am no longer able to breathe.

Because the real truth is that I am the healthiest I have ever been. And my relationship with my body is something I continue to give attention and love to each and every day.

And my clients are making changes in their lives. They are benefitting from the time we spend together. Because I am a damn good coach.

I love my purpose and I let it get “unattainable” in my mind’s eye for a minute. So I’m course correcting.

Because I am creating the healthiest body I can day in and day out.

So as I put these big goals down, I am able to pick up smaller goals that are easier to hold, and because they are more compact – I get to run with them.

Because I want to.

Because I don’t do anything I need to do.

And it is such a gift to myself to be able to know the vision, while focusing on the steps that will lead that way.

Because my success is inevitable. And yours is too.

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.


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.

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.

Weight Loss ain’t Linear

Disclaimer: This post was written for me as much as it (might) have been for you.

Fact: The scale does not continue to go down. Fact: The scale is not something that is even and sensible.

Making any emotional investment into the scale is a sheer waste of time and energy.

Louder, for the back?

F*@$ the scale!

Do the habits. Do the habits. Do. The. Habits.

The habits will not let you down.

The trajectory which gets created as each habit gets practices means more in a few weeks, months, years than any other thing that you may do.

Do. The. Habits.

That is all.

The Ugly Truth

I am a Life Coach. I am a Weight Loss Coach. One rolls off the tongue a bit more easily… Can you guess which?

My weight as of this morning is 245.8 lbs and I am a Weight Loss Coach. It takes practice and deliberate intention to believe this about myself. It takes questioning very specific belief systems I have about myself and the world to say this out loud and to share this here, with you, right now.

So, here is the thing. The secret. The way for me to be able to abandon antiquated belief systems no longer serving me — when the thoughts appear, I dismiss them and counter with the new belief I am practicing.

It really is that simple… and complicated.

And besides, here are the facts: I had Lap Band Weight Loss Surgery and immediately KNEW that it was my BRAIN that was the reason for me being overweight, for me enjoying to overeat, for me to crave the types of foods that I have in the past. There is absolutely no denying that. Surgery is a tool. The brain determines whether or not you experience success — of any kind.

Since having my weight loss surgery undone, and even in making the decision for myself — at the same weight I was when it was previously done — there is no denying that I’ve put myself into the hot seat. The public eye. With something that is typically thought of as a private and personal thing.

How could that be if I had not already changed the way I thought about all of that?

Exactly. Because I did.

And there is no hot seat. That is a thought! I do not believe there is a hot seat.

Here is what I know: I know exactly how to lose this weight. I am not restricting or depriving myself. I am living life the way I will for the rest of my life — without the extra food. I am feeling my feelings instead of eating in response to them. I’ve lost 75 lbs. I’m basically half way to my goal. And I have absolutely no doubt that I will get there.

But if I did not question, evaluate and change the way I thought, NONE of this would be possible.

So, what do you believe about you that is holding you back from achieving your wildest dreams?

Let’s get to work.
