Hi! My name is Corinne.
I’m so happy you found my little internet corner over here – welcome!
If we haven’t formally met, which is most likely the case (or hey, even if we have met, don’t worry, some of my family members still wonder what I do), let me fill you in on who I am and how I can help you.
In short, I help kind caring compassionate women ditch the diet, date without drama and most importantly, (in my humble opinion) learn how to like themselves.
I’m a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in nutrition. I’m also a life coach and successful matchmaker turned dating coach.
Plus, I’m kinda obsessed with yoga – does that count as a qualification?:)
Well, I have gone through a 200-hour yoga teacher training.
Regardless of all the titles, trainings, and education, it’s my story, I believe, that helps me most help women feel more comfortable in their skin and worthy of love, happiness, and so much more.
With that said, here’s a little on my story…
Your weight doesn’t equate your worth.
I used to be someone who equated her worth with her weight.
The smaller I got, I thought the more worthy I’d feel.
Well, that wasn’t the case.
About 15 years ago, I reached my self-imposed “goal weight,” and I’d never been so miserable in my life.
This was NOT how I was “supposed” to feel. In fact, it was the exact opposite. I was lonely, full of anxiety, and my relationship with my body and food – and everyone else in my life – was at an all-time low.
All those diets, meal plans, and crazy fitness plans?
They lied to me.
I didn’t need to change who I was.
I needed to accept who I was.
So that’s where my work began. Finding my worth, getting to know myself, and eventually, learning to like myself.
And what I found – as time went on – to my BIG surprise – was that coming at myself with kindness and self-acceptance was the real key to forever changing your relationship with food, yourself, and your body.
In other words, shame, self-hate, and this whole dieting thing I used to use in order to manipulate my body and hopefully, look a certain way, weren’t working for me. Well, let’s get real, they never worked for me.
So I began my healing work and once ready, I began sharing this work, so other women could learn how to feel more secure and confident in their body and life too.
If you want someone who believes you’re worth it, you need to believe you’re worth it.
Once my body-bashing chapter was closed.
I realized I had more work to do, which we all always have, but some chapters are more challenging than others.
And this chapter for me was HARD.
It was the chapter of love, heartache, and coming into my own.
You see, I used to be someone who would make herself small in relationships.
You know the kind of girls (or guys) who obviously change who they are in dating relationships and mold themselves into who they think they should be, just so the person they’re seeing won’t dump them?
Yea, well, that was me.
It wasn’t until I was dumped by the man I planned on marrying, was on the verge of turning 30, and moving back home with my parents that I began to understand that if I wanted someone to believe I was worthy of being loved, I had to believe it.
Believing I was worthy of being loved and not just loved but loved from the type of partner I wanted was a long process.
One that landed me plenty of bad dates, lonely nights, tears, and moments of complete and utter fear.
But, in the end, it was all worth it.
Ironically, my I’m-not-going-to-wash-my-hair-or-get-dressed-for-days heartbreak, not only gave me the courage to change the way I dated, but to change the way I lived.
I began swapping expectations for curiosity, choosing fun over stress, speaking my truth instead of hiding from it, living fully on my own, and discovering that I was, in fact, pretty gosh-darn good company and that I had a lot to offer … at least that’s what my husband tells me today:)
Self-acceptance unlocks the door for self-worth and a healthier, happier, more fulfilled life.
Today, I know and help other women know that believing in your worth is not only the doorway to a healthy happy relationship with food, yourself, and your body, it’s also the doorway to romantic love.
And the first step to believing you’re good enough and you’re worthy and that anything you wholeheartedly want you can do is learning how to accept yourself – the parts you’re proud of, the parts you don’t want anyone else to see, and the little weirdo parts that make you uniquely YOU. Self-acceptance is kinda an all-in thing. And it’s the only place in which you can make real, lasting, life-transforming change.
