Your journey back to You, using the art of Story Crafting
That you have found my website, I am guessing that you have some experience with that special kind of hell known as The Weight Struggle.
You have been displeased enough with your body that you have tried one or several of the options out there to try to change it – calorie counting, carb counting, shots, pills, powders, no fat, no sugar, no “white food,” protein-only, gym memberships, fitness trainers, DVDs, hypnosis, aversion therapy, maybe even lap-band or bypass surgery.
You have successfully lost weight one or more times, but now you have regained some or all of the weight you lost, because you returned to your old habits - or created new ones - that support an overweight body. You have had to buy new clothes in a bigger size, or you have pulled out the old clothes you had stored away. You are not engaging in life the way you want to. You are back to yelling at yourself - or worse, you are ignoring yourself and your needs altogether.
You likely have a lot of strong opinions about yourself right now, and I’m guessing they are not very complimentary or supportive. Those mean things you are telling yourself, whatever they are (I’m a failure, a loser, I’ll never get this right, I will always struggle, etc.), know that they are simply stories you are telling yourself. And know that these stories are supporting the very results you say you don’t want.
But guess what? Those stories can be changed.
At any given moment, you can decide to tell yourself a new story, a better story, one that supports you in creating the results you want in your life.
Story Crafting is a skill that anyone can learn. Unwinding your old stories – especially the ones in your subconscious mind – and then replacing them with the kind of stories that motivate you to engage in loving self-care, is your key to freedom from the prison of The Weight Struggle.
Hiring a coach to help you navigate your journey is one of the best investments you could ever make. As your coach, I will provide you with support, perspective, and many effective tools you can use to create the results you desire. Like any good coach, I will never jump into your negative story with you, nor will I support any abusive self-talk. Rather, I will hold the vision of your Essential Amazingness for you until you can see it yourself, until you can believe it and begin living your life from a powerful, yet peaceful place.
There is something I need to mention - if you’re looking for a quick-fix answer, it’s likely that coaching is not for you. This is a process that unfolds layer by layer and one that you must give your time and energy to in order to create the results you want. How much effort you put into your coaching journey determines what you will get out of it. I cannot create your results for you, but I can teach you how to reconnect with yourself on a deep level, which is an essential component for lasting change.
Coaching likely is for you if are willing to:
- Learn and apply a new way of thinking
- Take 100% responsibility for yourself and your life
- Make friends with your body and treat it with kindness
- Alter the choices you are currently making
- Explore your feelings and allow yourself to feel them
- Keep a daily journal and view it as a valuable transformational tool
- Complete the assignments that are designed to move you forward on your journey
You don’t have to have hit “Rock Bottom” in order to make a significant change in your life, but in case you have, I invite you to get inspired by this excerpt from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s Harvard speech on the benefits of failure: “Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was and began to direct all of my energy into finishing the only thing that mattered… Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.”
No matter how you feel about yourself right now, let this be the beginning for you. Signing up is step one and from there, I will guide you through the early steps of your journey and help you design a lifestyle that supports a healthy body and a happy life. I offer a few different coaching options; please keep reading to decide which one is right for you.
