“I actually lost weight by eating more and working out less! My chronic overuse injuries subsided and I had more physical and emotional energy. And my ab muscles are so happy! I feel relief, free from the negative self-talk and physical abuse, which I subjected to my body, mind and heart. “
Before I worked with Beth, I felt stuck, frustrated and not in control of my life, especially when it came to food and exercise. I felt like I was missing out on opportunities to live to my fullest potential because of my negative relationship with food and my body. I struggled to find balance between working out, eating, and living a full, whole life and I struggled to let go of old habits that were no longer serving me. Before Beth, I was fighting my body. I was trying to control and manipulate it through punishing workouts and depriving it the food it needed to recover and support my life. After Beth: on a good day, I listen and work with my body to move and eat what and when it wants and needs.
I actually lost weight by eating more and working out less! My chronic overuse injuries subsided and I had more physical and emotional energy. And my ab muscles are so happy! I feel relief, free from the negative self-talk and physical abuse, which I subjected to my body, mind and heart. I have more physical energy so that when my body needs to work it does so efficiently, happily and pain free. People tell me I look younger!
My biggest challenge throughout the process was facing the unknown and learning how to let go of my trusty habits and thought patterns and explore other paths. I developed the courage to explore and be kind to myself and my body as I tried new foods, started working out less and letting go of the belief that I can manipulate my body to my “ideal” which was limiting and selling myself short at every opportunity.
I now feel a sense of peace, a sense of adventure and curiosity when it comes to food and my body image. I feel stronger because I now have the knowledge and tools to help my body be its best. I’ve healed a limiting view of myself and where I belong in this world and my community, allowing for the possibility that I am much more than I could ever know.
I have discovered I am the #1 nutrition expert! Everything I need to know is within me if I listen. I’ve clarified my sense of what it means to be healthy. That “skinny” is not the same as healthy. Any amount of negative self talk, manipulation or negative feelings towards food or my body directly affect and destroy my well being on a huge scale.

I love Beth’s telephone conferencing. Working from the comfort of my home, with her gentle voice on the line is oddly more personal than a typical in-person setting.
