The 22lbs lost, the new relationship, the new job, the freedom with eating, they were all cherries on top of my sundae. The work I did with Beth to build my sundae resulted in my now accepting myself for who I am today, and not only just accepting myself, but feeling pride for the lady I have become.
So much has changed in the time I spent with Beth. I look back at the beginning of my journey and I hardly recognize myself. I remember first coming to Beth in so much digestive pain because I had wrecked havoc on my body for so many years. My tummy didn’t know what to do anymore. I was at the end of my rope and a friend of mine had recommended I see her nutritionist friend, Beth.
I was desperate at this point, to be able to eat in comfort and to just have some change in my life for the better. Little did I know how my world would be miraculously transformed in every way. I lost 22 pounds during my time with Beth. I changed jobs to a more financially fruitful, happy, positive, and educationally challenging work environment.I started working out at Mark Fisher Fitness. I started eating intuitively and listening to my body for what it wanted and eating out of joy and freedom. I let go of belief systems about myself that were no longer serving me and squashed some negative patterns in my life. I choose to now stand in the “naked- un-knowing, vulnerable” place and just breathed into keeping my heart open for what would come next.
I started to love myself, as cheesy as that sounds, and this is coming from a former perfectionist. It’s hard to love ALL OF YOURSELF, even the bad parts and the weaknesses, because those parts of me helped me to get to where I am today and to be stronger than I was yesterday. I’m now in a healthy loving relationship and it happened when I was no longer “looking for love” and just too busy filling my life with things that made “me” happy as a single gal.
My relationship with my parents, friends, and bosses have all flourished into more mature, open relationships because Beth helped me realize areas where I could grow- and together we bravely charged into the accepting myself as I am today and being open to feedback from others. So to say the LEAST; I’m happier now, I feel free, like I can do anything I set my mind to. I recognize when fear is creeping into my mind, and then I try my best to not continue down that old path, but to instead keep my heart open and be vulnerable in life with those trustworthy people.
The 22lbs lost, the boyfriend, the new job, the freedom with eating, they were all cherries on top of my sundae. The work I did with Beth to build my sundae resulted in my now accepting myself for who I am today, and not only just accepting myself, but feeling pride for lady I have become. In one week I start my new career as a health coach- to get certified at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition-the same school that Beth went to. Not only has Beth changed my life, but she is a mentor to me now and her life and her work has inspired me to help change others lives for the better.
When I started down this path with Beth- it was never about the end result or how would I feel in the end- because to be honest- I had no idea this much good was possible, that I could be truly happy with life and today when I count my blessings, Beth is always my favorite blessing because she is a true healer and I trust her with my heart completely.
I wish you all peace and love in your life and the courage to invest in yourself- your heart-your body- and see what miracles can happen.
