Emily, Actor

EmilyMy results have been so much fun to live in! I lost five pounds in the first few weeks without any exercise, and felt way more energy when I was ready to head to the gym again. People tell me I look svelte! For some reason that is the word they keep tossing around! I say “Beth and green smoothies!” Since working with Beth, I now feel like I am nurturing myself more.

Before I worked with Beth I felt like every decision I made about food was not my own. I couldn’t own up to the bad ones, and the good ones were shots in the dark. I felt like I had good metabolism and I was going to lean on it for as long as I could but I had no discipline. I believed that eating well was only for the privileged and I struggled to not judge other people. I would give in to cravings and then beat myself up. My relationship with my body, myself, or my career felt like it changed with my mood. I turned it into what worked that day based on my whims. Beth made me realized it was one of disempowerment.

My results have been so much fun to live in! I lost five pounds just within in the first few weeks without any exercise, and felt way more energy when I was ready to head to the gym again. People tell me I look svelte! For some reason that is the word they keep tossing around! I say “Beth and green smoothies!” Since working with Beth, I now feel like I am nurturing myself more. I feel ARMED with knowledge gained from investigation, confidence gained from achieving goals I never thought possible and celebrating those achievements, and excitement as I continue to go deeper into asking questions behind why I make the choices I do.

I’ve healed the feeling of “shot in the dark self nurturing” that was my spotty way of interacting with myself. I crave deeper interaction with every part of me, all of my wants, and all of what they have to teach me. I’ve discovered that feelings are just that, feelings. I can want something, but I don’t have to have it. What I can’t do is ignore it. I have to acknowledge the craving and investigate what it’s really for, and go from there.

I looked forward to each week. Beth never judged me and was so curious about what made me tick. She was so compassionate, empathetic and considerate in her advice. I never could have imagined the sessions would have delved as deeply as they did. She celebrated me, challenged me and was 100% there for me. I had doubts that i had a “big enough problem” to be spending the money and asking for help. I didn’t feel like I had a terribly unhealthy relationship with food, I just wanted a change in my current way of doing things, Beth made me realize that this quiet voice inside me was exactly what I should be using to make decisions.

The way Beth works is unique…she is part therapist, part nutritionist, part coach, part parent, part career coach, part shaman, part middle school best friend at a sleepover. I have no idea how she was able to plan out our whole journey, how we were able to accomplish so many of the crazy goals I set for myself at the beginning, but she never appeared frazzled. She has some magic formula for bringing out the part of you that can do the work and not even realize your doing it. Then at the end she gives you all the credit. It’s amazing. Please do yourself a favor, your future and past selves a favor, your career and relationships a favor, and invest the time and money in Beth. I’m so friggin happy I did.
