“Be better to yourself. Start moving and stop starving.”
That’s what changed everything for me. I wasn’t overweight, I didn’t complete some insane fitness challenge, and I hadn’t hit “rock bottom”. I was just … extremely frustrated.
I used to hate my body. Well maybe “hate” is too strong a word. Even though I was considered “slim” and “healthy”, I sure didn’t feel that way. I felt out of shape and unhealthy.
I know, I know … trainer says she used to be unhappy about her body – boo-hoo, right? Well here’s the thing: the way people feel about their bodies often has little to do with how they look in the mirror.
So while I may not have looked out of shape, I knew darn well that I was. I wasn’t strong, I had little mobility, and I would get out of breath climbing a single flight of stairs. My body was starting to betray me and I was barely into my twenties!
Why? Because I was treating myself poorly.
You see, I grew up in a culture where frail, helpless, and above all thin is the ideal. So I used to try every diet pill and program just to lose a few pounds. The scale was my religion. I used to think that if I could just get to a certain weight, I would finally look beautiful and feel more confident.
Never happened. No matter what I did, no matter how I starved myself, none of the programs or products I tried made me feel the way I wanted to. And I broke down a bit, finally confiding in a friend who seemed to have it all together.
She simply said: “Be better to yourself.”
I asked her how and she just said: “Start moving and stop starving.”
So simple, right? But for me it was like a splash of cold water after years of frustration. Could I really eat and look good? Could I really work out and feel better? Was it possible that happiness and confidence required nothing more than some sweat and knowledge?
She explained a bit about her own lifestyle, and how it was focused on making good choices, staying active, eating well (and enough!), and getting stronger each day, both physically and mentally. She didn’t go for fads and she didn’t use extreme measures. Most importantly, she loved herself enough to forgive herself for the times when she didn’t quite hit her goals. She made consistent progress, she was happy, and she was full of energy. It seemed too good to be true. Fortunately, it wasn’t. J
So on that day, I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and become what I’d always wanted to be. I’ve now spent years researching, asking, experimenting, and learning about what would work for someone like me to get a lean and toned body without extreme measures.
I’ve finally found the answers, and have been fortunate enough to be able to help thousands of women worldwide reclaim the fit and healthy body they deserve. Seeing confidence, energy, and joy come back to my clients has been the highlight of my professional career.
My goal is to give that to you too, because you are absolutely, positively, 100% worth it!
P.S. I want to hear from you!
