I’ve talked about hitting an (over)weight wall and knowing I couldn’t go another day the same way I had for years and years, encased in 100+ extra pounds and an equal amount of self-loathing, the same way other women in my family had for years and years. I was READY to change the course of my life, and the lives of my ladybugs, and I was ready, finally, to do whatever it took. Seriously! #WhateverItTook
I stayed determined and shed 100 pounds in less than six months. Since then, I have stayed the course, becoming solid in my new normal with a new body (and even shedding more pounds, hitting my dreamiest health goal EVER), fiercely determined to live 100 healthy years! And now I have the pleasure of coaching others to reach their health goals and helping them create 100 year bodies, too.
So, I’ve dropped 114 pounds, GONE, and it’s no secret I’m a fan of super foods, KALE, and living a Nutritarian lifestyle . . . so, after breaking addictions to fat, salts, and sugars, would you ever believe I indulge in those very foods occasionally? When it comes to breaking addictions to street or prescription drugs and alcohol, it is recommended you stay away and stay “sober” for the REST of your life. As soon as one of those substances passes over your lips, you are walking in the very dangerous land of relapse. So, how does that work when it comes to food addictions? Can a former food addict navigate that space without throwing all of their progress away or “falling off the wagon,” or diving head first into a vat of potato chips or hot wings or pizza or ICE CREAM.
