Hiding my Pain Through Food
From the time I was a child, and well into adulthood, I struggled with my weight. I suffered from low self-esteem, I hated how I looked, and I hated who I was becoming. I wasn’t happy at all, and what I wanted was to lose weight and feel good about myself.
I tried every diet I could find — shakes, pills, fasts — and nothing worked. Within a few weeks, I’d turn back to donuts, chocolate, and binge eating.
I used food to hide my emotional pain. Whether I was worried, depressed, angry, sad, tired, or stressed — I ate. I felt like my only source of comfort came from the pantry, the vending machine, or the drive-thru.
A Life-Changing Mindset Shift
I finally had my “A-ha!” moment when I realized that diets weren’t going to fix my food addiction. I wasn’t struggling with my weight because of the physical stuff, it was EMOTIONAL pain that was hurting me.
I had to shift my brain away from the limiting beliefs and negativity, and learn how to acknowledge and accept my fears and difficulties. Only then could I make the physical shifts needed to overcome my weight struggles.
And once I had this moment of true clarity, I knew that if I could change my mindset, I could be free from excess weight, and that’s what I set out to do.
Sharing the Gift of Health
Once I realized the gift of mindset-shifting techniques, I became passionate about sharing this knowledge with others. I became a Certified Integrative Health Coach to guide others in safe, sustainable weight loss methods through mindset transformation.
But I wasn’t successful when I started…
I had the passion for helping others live their best life.
I had a globally recognized education from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
I had years of experience as a small business owner and entrepreneur.
On paper, there was no reason why my coaching business shouldn’t be successful!
But in reality, my MINDSET wasn’t ready!
I had emotional barriers that stopped me from living out my purpose and passion! I had low confidence in my value of work and experience, which led to me giving away my services.
I felt like an imposter, afraid to put myself truly out there because I was worried my ideal clients would see right through me.
I knew I couldn’t hold myself back or only give halfway! But, that’s what I was doing.
I felt totally overwhelmed! Something had to change!
Discovering Ongoing Emotional Freedom
I discovered Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), or “Tapping,” to help me overcome my food addiction. I dove deeper into the healing methods of EFT, to acknowledge and accept the fears and anxieties that were holding me back in ALL areas of my life. Through tapping, I was able to get to the core of my emotional obstacles, recognize them, and actively choose to overcome them!
Through EFT, I discovered my confidence as a powerful, gifted person. I found my clarity to move forward towards my goals, and I fully accepted myself, which allowed me to be emotionally and mentally at peace.
Emotional Freedom Techniques allowed me to realize my dreams as a coach. I achieved success by working with my clients and helping them achieve their goals of improved health and wellbeing.
