I doubt and worry. I get upset. I just want what's best for me and my family and...
By the way I am wife, mother to three, weight loss and life coach, RN and an excited Jesus Christ believer too!
Since adolescents, maybe even before, I’ve struggled with my self-image. I have a vague memory of a girl in my third-grade class and the thought of how I wanted to be her. As I grew, it grew into an unhealthy focus on my body and how I looked.
Having kids didn’t help the situation. It wasn't just the extra weight, I had no idea how to love myself and see myself as God saw me.
When you don’t feel good about who God made you, it is really tough to teach your kids to feel good about who God made them.
I felt like I was drowning in the physical weight, the weight of my guilt, the struggles of everyday life and the fear I was screwing this all up (me and my children).
So, I went on diets. I read books. I exercised more. It would work temporarily but nothing seemed to LAST.
Finally, I realized the REAL problem.
I didn’t know how to manage my mind to make myself feel better and thus make better decisions.
Once I learned how to manage my mind and choose the Spirit’s truths, life started to change. Not just my weight, but my everyday happiness and joy.
Life wasn’t such an overwhelming struggle anymore.
I had the confidence to live life fully and joyfully.
The tools I've gained in overcoming my struggles and conquering my body issues are now what I use with my clients. As a certified Weight Loss and Life Coach, along with my nursing experience, I found a way give back the blessings God has so graciously bestowed to me.
Now, my life looks drastically different from three years ago.
When I’m not busy coaching and encouraging, you will find me at home with my kiddos and husband playing games or snuggling together. My favorite thing to do is to cozy up and read the Bible or a good book. I search out ways to stretch myself by setting new goals (off on an African mission trip soon…). And, I love to let my creative juices flow by finding fresh new ways to organize, de-clutter or decorate my house.
Now, my joy is evident.
God has blessed me to coach other women who are in the same spot I was.
My coaching helps them ditch the weight, but that's not the important part. They learn the ditch the frustration and guilt about the weight and about taking time to care for themselves. They gain a new appreciation for who God made them. From there, they find the energy, confidence and joy that so many are desperately seeking.
Through my support, accountability and mindset work, women are changing their lives and thriving.
What’s better than that?
