What I've found is that most people have an unhealthy relationship with food. They're super stressed, depressed, angry, or just had an overall crappy day. So, what do they do? They seek food for comfort. They seek food to fill a void. I know, because I've been there. I tried most of the fad diets out there and lost weight, but as soon as I stopped the diet the weight came back on plus some! That always left me feeling frustrated, stuck, and confused when it came to nutrition. I was in a pretty rough place physically and mentally.
You see, when I was at my heaviest weighing in at about 200lbs at only 5' short, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and I felt like my health was going downhill fast! I was unhappy, lacked confidence, and was angry and frustrated that I let myself get that way. I was so self-conscious and hyper aware of how much weight I was carrying that I was super anxious in my marriage. I was "fit" when I met my now husband. But over time the weight started piling on that by the time I was 200lbs I lost all control. I stopped getting dressed in front of my husband and I started having this thought in back of my mind that he is going to leave me because I am now considered obese and that was not the person he married. Have you felt that way? Do you feel that way? Well, you're not alone. I totally get you! It was then I knew something had to change. I couldn't keep living my life that way or I would fail myself and even my marriage.
It was through my own transformation journey through both therapy and weight loss that I was able to lose weight and keep it off. I initially pursued a certification in nutrition to help me lose weight. But as I started to transform mind and weight that I realized that I can help so many others who are struggling in the same way to see that they don't have to live their lives that way.
