After being a competitive athlete, being obsessed with my body and losing weight since I was a teenager, it is not surprising that I became a fitness trainer in 2009. I worked hard in the gym and followed strict diets. But no matter what I did, I kept struggling with my weight, and I could never live up to the expectations people had around me since I was a little girl.
I blamed myself and my body- So I worked even harder!
At the same time, I had many other challenges. I was stressed and overwhelmed, my marriage was falling apart. I took care of everything and everyone else. I did not have much downtime and did not sleep enough. I also did not have a lot of support. I was resentful, frustrated and anxious. Periodically, I broke down from all this pressure and to release some of it, I turned to wine. But drinking was not the only thing I used to ease my pain. I hurt and sabotaged myself with a lot of other choices I made daily, including the exercise routines and the diets I followed.
I showed up for everybody and everything except myself
This battle landed me in the hospital in 2009. I was terrified. My body and nervous system could not handle the amount of stress I put on myself.
This was MY TURNING POINT!
I started searching for answers, not only for me personally, but my clients too. I wanted to understand what keeps most women from losing weight no matter how hard they try.
I wanted to understand how could so many of us push so hard to achieve a goal, without noticing that we are hurting ourselves?
At the same time, I also paid close attention to my clients. I realized that some of my clients struggled like me. BUT some of them lost weight with ease. I noticed recurring patterns in both groups. After many years of searching, investing tens of thousands of dollars, countless books, self-help seminars, mentors, healers, great amount of time spent in meditation, self-reflection, journaling…etc, I found some shocking answers. I learned, that the reason why I did not lose the weight wasn't because I did not work hard enough. And...
...finally, I could stop blaming myself!
I started applying my new found knowledge on myself first, later with my clients. My clients began to approach fitness, dieting and weight-loss from an entirely new perspective. Their transformation was mind-blowing. They stopped struggling with themselves and their bodies.
They got a huge weight lifted off of them not only physically but emotionally & mentally too!
Here is how my life changed when I changed my approach
My biggest achievements of all:
I LIVE THE LIFE I DESIRE!
I don't settle for less than what I believe, I deserve!
Sometimes, when I pause and look back, I have a hard time believing how much my life has changed. I am amazed and grateful today for having the courage to take this path! But, it was not easy to get here. It took me almost ten (10) years to understand what to change and make all the adjustments to get where I am today. On my journey, I did not have much support. And I did not know who or how to ask for help. I wasn't even sure if I was doing the right thing. I had to figure out everything one step at a time with trial and error and lots of conflicts along the path.
Alone, it was really hard. At times, I wasn't sure if I would make it. But thankfully I did. And I am here to share what I learned with you, so that YOU can transform your life and body with EASE, in much LESS TIME and with people along your side who SUPPORT you. I created...
