Making Friends With Food
I remember when food controlled my life.
I started each day obsessing over how I would eat…knowing that my happiness depended on how well I could control myself. There were rules about everything — nothing to eat before 11:00 am, or after 6:00 pm. Only one serving of dairy, no gluten, sugar only once a week.
Panic preceded each meal, and shame and regret followed. I could never do it exactly right. Each “good” day or meal was followed by a full-fledged, no-holds-barred binge, when I would make myself sick inhaling all the foods I had been restricting. I walked away from countless meals feeling sick, bloated, drained, and ashamed.
It was an endless, exhausting cycle, always in pursuit of some ideal body that would solve all my problems. The worst part was just not understanding what was wrong. I thought I was following the rules, doing what I was supposed to do. Why was it so. damn. hard?
My whole life revolved around food and I was so, so tired of it. I wanted to live a happy, relaxed life. I wanted to feel comfortable in my body. I wanted to eat normally, and not obsess about every bite of food.
I just wanted to live my life, and make an impact on the world, and have great relationships with my family and friends…without worrying about the way I looked every second of the day. I wanted to enjoy vacations, without being distracted by my body or trying to control myself around food. I wanted to just be able to go out to dinner, eat until I was full, and leave the meal feeling comfortable and happy.
I’ve made it my life’s work to help other women escape the trap of this endless and fruitless cycle. I know the secrets now, the simple solutions and mindset shifts that opened up a whole new world to me. I know how to achieve the peace and freedom that felt so elusive when food occupied so much of my thoughts.
How can you do your best work, or be the best mom, or have a deep connection with your partner, or change the world when you’re stuck in battle with this most basic element of survival? Your relationship with food impacts literally every area of your life, from your basic feelings of self-worth, to the energy you have to create and make a difference, to the quality of your relationships, to how you feel when you get out of bed in the morning.
Most women reach a point in their lives where they’re ready to stop struggling. The perfect “beach body” no longer feels like a necessary part of life. Fitting into your high school prom dress doesn’t matter anymore. Chatting about the latest diet is boring. Thinking about starting yet another New Year with hopes of finally losing weight and having the perfect body just makes you feel exhausted and hopeless.
You’re ready for depth and meaning and passion. You’re ready to acknowledge your real hopes and dreams and connect with your authentic spirit. You’re ready to step into a new phase of life where you’re anchored by peace, confidence, joy, and the ability to make a real impact on the world.
You’re done struggling with your body and fighting food. It’s time to step into your full potential and live your best life. You’re in the right place.
I’m glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to help.
