Accept Your Body and
Become Your Best Self Yet
Have you been chasing after someone else’s definition of beauty and acceptable body size? Have you been yo-yo dieting for years? Have you been judging your size and shape in the mirror and waiting to live your life until you get to a certain size or body shape? Is your relationship with your spouse or partner lacking because you are anxious about your size and spend most of your time thinking about a smaller body size? Have you had “if only……” (fill in the blank here with things like I’d love my body as it is, have a better relationship with my spouse/partner, or be comfortable in my own skin) thoughts rumbling through your mind for the past several years?
Guess What? You are not alone. I have been there and empathize with you. In fact, many women have been there before too. Chasing after someone else’s defintion of beauty is exhausting! Comparing yourself to everyone around you is stealing your joy. You don’t need anyone else’s secret sauce. You have your own.
Getting in touch with your body and accepting it as it is will not only heal your relationship with your body and yourself, it will improve your relationships in general. It will allow you to show up authentically and live in the moment. You will no longer be held back by your size. You will measure success by your own standards. And never look back. You may even throw out the scale. For good!
The world deserves to know you. You don’t have to wait until you have things fully defined to start being your best self yet. You don’t have to wait until “if only…” (fill in the blank from your response from above) to start living your best life yet!
Let’s start working together to define what your best self yet looks like and a plan to start making that happen NOW. There is no better time than now to start.

Then, I put it on hold as I got stuck while talking about the middle of the journey into my eating disorder recovery. ItContinue reading “The Diagnosis – Chapter 1”
It’s 11:58 pm on a Thursday night. And I can’t sleep. I’ve tossed and turned for over three straight hours. I was overly exhausted as I headed to bed tonight. I even took a hot bath and climbed into bed early. It’s been an extra long week – lots of work at my 9 toContinue reading “Restless Energy Comes in 24 oz Bottles”
Happy 2021! If you are like most in this pandemic-stricken world, you woke up today feeling a little hopeful for what may come this year.

For some, 2020 wasContinue reading “Setting Resolutions or Living Values?”
