If you're anything like me, dieting has, in some form, long been a part of your life. I started obsessing about food and my body when I was 15 years old. I spent more than half of my life being terrified of having a "bad food day," and the spiral of depression that it would send me into. There were many days I hated myself intensely for being "too weak" to successfully diet myself to what I thought happiness looked like (i.e. killer legs and a six-pack). I had worked hard and been able to achieve all other goals I set out to. But not this. It took up so much energy that it kept me from showing up in other areas of my life. And trust me, you don't find happiness when you are locked up in your apartment for four days, too ashamed to face the world. You can read more about my personal story on the blog here.
Perfectionist by nature, I wanted to project an image of having it all figured out. The thing I've learned is that no one does. And there is incredible power in being able to show up and just be yourself, flaws and all. There were many phases of my recovery and like any journey worth being on, mine is an ongoing one. My journey is what prompted me to launch the Sustainable Body Project and what drives my deep passion to support others fighting this battle. I don't sit on this end of the coaching table claiming to have it all figured out. But I do know that learning to let go of the rules around food and tuning into what my body needs has led me to a better place than I've ever been.
Being kind to ourselves can be the biggest challenge for many of us. But it's also the challenge most worth facing. I would love nothing more than to support you on your journey to a healthy relationship with food and with yourself.
