This is my story...

I know the stress that comes from being unhappy with the way you eat, your body and wanting desperately to lose weight.

For over 27 years, I struggled with overeating, my weight and my body image.

I suffered from yo-yo dieting, guilt, self-criticism and deprivation. I have felt the frustration and the shame that goes with losing weight only to put it back on again.

I understand what it feels like to believe:

  • “I just don’t have the willpower to stick to a diet”
  • “I will always have a weight problem”
  • “I am just a big girl”
  • “I just love food too much”
  • “I can’t manage my weight”
  • “I don’t know how to stop overeating”

I went on every diet imaginable, took pills, appetite suppressants and injections. I spent a fortune on programmes, doctors and dieticians. I cut out carbs, ate fat-free food and even lived on pineapple for 2 weeks in winter!

I had 3 degrees, spoke 5 languages, I had a “glamorous” job (travelling and staying at 5 star hotels and lodges), a gorgeous daughter and a happy marriage but I just couldn’t stop overeating.

This was the one area of my life, I just couldn’t work out. I reached a point where I just could not do it anymore – there had to be another way to lose weight and keep it off…

There is – and it works.

I hired a coach, embarked on a journey within and in the process, discovered something a whole lot more valuable than just losing weight. I never would have thought that my biggest problem would turn out to be my biggest gift!

“Wellness isn't about deprivation and it's not about perfection. It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth, training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential and then taking small steps to support that shift. It is about showing up for yourself day by day and then one day finding that you have undergone a transformation.”
