Years ago, I was trying to be skinny. Long history of that since childhood but at this particular time I was heavier than I have ever been. I decided to take diet pills – this was before they took ephedra off the market. They were “natural” so I took them with abandon. I wouldn’t be hungry until late morning, when I would have a big slice of pudding cake for breakfast (yes, you read that right, pudding cake from the local grocery – it wasn’t even homemade with love LOL). Yes, this is a dirty little secret I held, the Metabotrim or something like that, pudding cake and Mountain Dew diet. Shockingly, :-/ it didn’t work. I got bigger not smaller. Unbelievable, right?
I wasn’t fully aware at the time, of course, but now it makes me sad how misguided and ultimately harmful that whole routine was. However, I forgive the old me and I realize that she didn’t know better. Even if she did, she didn’t understand how to do better. She couldn’t see clearly and she didn’t understand that she was so much more precious than that and that health and fitness was the real goal, not being skinny at any cost.
My experiences like that and how I have now created a lean, strong, healthy and energetic body as one major facet of a healthy, joyful life, led me to my life’s work. I help people find those things they are doing and the reasons that they are doing them that they cannot see. While so close to it, they are not able to connect the dots of what is happening but they are painfully aware of the results, like in my case weight gain, lethargy and burnout. We cannot see our own blind spots but someone who has navigated the waters can serve as a guide. What is keeping you from living your fullest life? Show me the result and I will help you uncover and remove the cause.
