I will be happy with my body when....
I WILL BE HAPPY WITH MY BODY WHEN...
- I lose x amount of weight
- My arms are more toned
- My skin is tan
- My cellulite is gone
- I have a flat tummy
- I have breast implants
And the list goes on. These are the lists I often hear when working 1:1 with clients.
What is your list? I always had a list too.
What I learned though is this...
No matter how much I...
- Restricted my food 🥑
- Pushed myself in the gym
- Punished myself in the mirror
- Had washboard abs
- Tried every diet 🥬
- Had tanned skin ️
- Missed out on sweets
- Pushed myself until I was burnt out 🧠
- Fit into a size 00
None of it mattered. None of it made me feel prettier or where I wanted to be. None of it made me happier with myself. All of it just became an obsession to be something more than I already was. In the photo above was when I hated my body the most and thought I was fat. When you can't see yourself, you only see what your mind believes.
It was not until I started my self-love journey 8 years ago that things started to shift. No matter how much weight you lose, it will not be enough if you live in a hateful place in your mind.
I became happy with myself and then I became a mother. If I didn’t do the work I do every day I would have gone back to my old ways but the work I do works and I am living proof of it.
When you learn to love yourself, the weight will shed off easier. My body went through a massive shift and it doesn’t look the way it did but I’ve learned to love these new parts of myself and to accept them.
This doesn’t just happen but takes daily practice. Being kind to your body on the days you don’t want to. Repeating affirmations such as, "I accept myself fully" each day. Being okay with looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing yourself for who you are. Speaking kindly to yourself or speaking nothing.
If you only focus on the weight or your stomach or the areas you hate...you can actually gain more weight. Our bodies hold everything within and these negative thoughts about ourselves can store in your body.
I help you to release these thoughts. To get into healthy routines with daily movement that makes you feel amazing. Moving and nourishment to feel good and not with the intention to be skinny. This will automatically get you feeling better in your body. Teaching you how to feel whole and happy within yourself. Healing past wounds, going through family lineage, and the deep inner child work to make massive changes in your life.
The tools I teach are life-changing. I have watched massive transformations happen with the people that I have worked with. Going from, "I hate my body" to "I love my body".
We have a new year upon us, who is ready to take a leap with me now and create a plan for your future. Many people put this on the back burner and say I will make changes next year. Why not make the changes now? Commit now, so you can go into the new year with a plan set up or already doing the work to feel your best.
Loving the self is one of the hardest things you will do in life but the most rewarding. Learning to love yourself through all seasons of life and not when you just look a certain way. Send me a message and book your free call to see how I can support you on your journey of self-love.
