Welcome to Finding Food Freedom, the IME July Self-love mantras! I felt really free writing these mantras and hope you will feel free as you read them.
In September, 2017, I started my weight loss and life coaching journey with Dr. Katrina Ubell, who coaches busy women physicians. Nearly five years later, I can say it was one of the best investments of my life. To say learning the tools of life coaching was life changing is a massive understatement. To be successful with any change in your life, you have to start with your pain point. Though I was clinically obese at the time, my weight was not a pain point for me. My pain point was feeling stuck, feeling like I was living a smaller life ruminating about food, diet coke, seeking false pleasures and not showing up for my human life. I was living an external life seeking achievements without any regard for what I really want. Now, I have freedom WITH food and fully trust myself to not restrict or punish or use food to cope with my human emotions.
