I'm a mother, health coach,
clinical hypnotherapist, and founder of the
"Perfect Fit" signature program.
Since my first diet at 10 years old, all I wanted was to feel comfortable and confident in my body, without starving or missing out.
What if the discovery that changed my life,
can change yours too?
… for my inside and outside to match… but I just couldn’t control my mindless eating.
Waking up Monday morning, determined to be "good".
Sometimes that would last until Wednesday.
Sometimes only until lunch on Monday.
No matter how much I tried, somewhere along the way, I would notice (after the fact) that I had eaten a bunch of food that I didn’t intend on eating, and my clothes kept getting tighter.
To some people, that might sound strange, but that was my experience ever since I can remember.
Why did it seem so hard?
Sometimes I would be satisfied with a justification or excuse (we sure seem to have some good ones these days)… but eventually, the consequences of these actions both physically and emotionally were just overwhelming.
I remember a specific time (which had happened more times than I can count) where once again, I gathered my determination... motivated by an upcoming event where I really wanted to feel and look good.
I calculated the time until the event, and figured if I did a quick plan I could drop down enough to fit into that nice summer dress and feel great.
Focus, determination, motivation, desire, a plan - I was ready.
And you can probably guess what happened… Ugh...
Willpower failed me. And even if I can muster it for long enough, I always seem to end up right back in the spot where I have to find that old fierce determination all over again.
Exhausted - I knew there had to be another way.
Why did it seem so easy for some people? What did they have that I didn’t?
I went on a mission to find an answer to these questions so I could stop the cycle of never ending trying to muster up the willpower over and over again, just to button my jeans.
The whole point of feeling great is being able to enjoy the celebrations and little moments of life - a long term plan must include social activites.
Eating less and exercising more does not work. To really make the powerful and positive changes last, we must feel satisfied.
Too many supplements can actually have the opposite than intended effect. Most people never need to take them.
