“I’ve become committed to being on my own side. Beth helped me reignite my “vision” for myself . I feel a real, immediate, unfettered connection with my instincts, that aren’t all cluttered up and dissipated by a bunch of negative ideas about myself…Being more loving to myself has made me feel more empowered in work situations and in my relationships. Feeding myself and talking to myself the way I would someone I love has made me expect that kind of treatment from other people as well.”
Before I worked with Beth I felt, I felt like I did a fairly good job of feeding myself and felt pretty knowledgeable about nutrition. I knew there were areas that needed improvement (never eating breakfast, not eating enough protein, feeling not in control of my weight fluctuations, etc) but I never felt a lasting impetus to improve. I was attracted to Beth’s program because she talked about helping you find your best self and that appealed to me; physically and psychologically.
I felt like a real haziness about how to get there on my own. I wasn’t steadily invested in being good to myself. I was always struggling to make wellness a priority and the things that I said I wanted for myself were always taking a back seat to other people and to my own fears, procrastination and sense of defeat. I knew I wasn’t fully committed to myself, but I couldn’t think of realistic, doable ways to change. I never felt like I was getting to the heart of the matter and that I would make temporary and superficial changes, but nothing had that much effect.
I wasn’t giving 100% in my relationship with my body, myself or my career and I felt like it didn’t really matter. Now, I realize it was because I had some serious self-sabotaging thoughts that had the upper-hand.
In the past, I would eat a handful of this or that most of the time. I now notice, when I choose what to eat, I think “I am going to feed someone I love.” I choose delicious and nutritious food that makes me feel good. Now, I think about what will make me feel good at an audition or in the gym.
I used to think “Oh, of course it’s important for (any movie star name) to eat really healthily. THEY have to look great and they are always working. Now, I think that about myself. I am being kinder to myself, like I’m prepping myself to live the way I want to right now, not at some point in the future or when I have earned it.
My closest friends have been really thrilled to hear about how much I have learned about myself and the changes in my perspective with myself, my relationships and my work. I feel like my attitude and approach to so many aspects of my life has improved. Beth has helped me figure out how I was getting in my own way and how the ideas I had about myself were holding me in a place of really limited possibilities. We got really specific about what I’m afraid of and what I’m angry at myself for. Underneath all the fear and self-sabotage is the truth of me- a person who wants to be loving to myself and proud of myself and who completely believes that I deserve to dream bigger and am capable of reaching what I want.
I’ve become committed to being on my own side. Beth helped me reignite my “vision” for myself . I feel a real, immediate, unfettered connection with my instincts, that aren’t all cluttered up and dissipated by a bunch of negative ideas about myself. I feel like I have lightened the burden on my heart a great deal. Being more loving to myself has made me feel more empowered in work situations and in my relationships. Feeding myself and talking to myself the way I would someone I love has made me expect that kind of treatment from other people as well. It is much more natural to expect good things to come to me when i am being good to myself first.
It’s probably no coincidence that I’ve booked two exciting jobs and walked out of two that I hated. I’ve spoken up for myself in situation I wouldn’t have before, invested financially in myself in ways that i had been procrastinating for a long time and have been more bold/honest/unapologetic in my personal relationships. I am really claiming my life and my responsibility for it in a way that i never have before and I feel a passionate investment in bettering my life.
You can read all the books you want about nutrition and self-love and healthy living but you aren’t going to have the kind of full-impact, turn-your-life-around kind of experience you will have with Beth. She is deeply compassionate but she knows when you need some tough love. She is blunt and honest in a way that wakes you up and makes you laugh. She is so wise and intuitive but she makes sure you find the answers in yourself. I can say, from personal experience and without a doubt, she is more invested in you being in your best shape and living your best life than even you are right now and she will keep pushing until you catch up.
