How to Stop Beating Yourself Up (about Food, Your Body, Dating & Anything Really) + The 3 C’s…

One of the things that used to be incredibly uncomfortable for me was writing my story online.. Who was I? Why did I do what I do? Who can I help? Why in the world does a Dietitian do food and body image coaching as well as date coaching? I’d sit there – after taking online writing class after online business class – trying to “get it right.” Trying to explain myself… During this time – when I was really trying to put myself “out there” – about 4 ...

When You Want to Give Up Dieting & Feeling Controlled by Food BUT You’re Afraid of Gaining Weight…

As women, we’re taught or rather conditioned to believe that being smaller is better. That the smaller we are, the happier and more fulfilled our lives will be. But when you begin to peel back the layers, I mean really peel back, the above ideal is something to question. Is the size of your body – something that is literally designed to change as you age and move through different stages of life – really going to determine your happiness? And if that’s the case, are the controlling, obsessive food ...

How to Begin Trusting Your Body When You Decide to Give Up Dieting

Can I share something with you? Well, if you’re here (and I’m so happy you are), you kinda have no choice … So here it is… I have a hard time trusting new people. Well, not every new person. Only those who come in to help me with my business. This likely goes back to some underlying belief, but we won’t go there. For now, all you need to know is that I generally have some anxiety whenever I bring on someone new to help me. For example, my web ...

Want to Love Your Body But Feel Stuck? Maybe THIS is Why…

As a Registered Dietitian and food and body image coach, a huge part of my work is helping women feel confident in their clothes, eat what they want without guilt, and begin to reconnect with the beautiful soul they are. I love what I do. Part of why I do what I do is because I get what it feels like to be an obsessive calorie-counter and yo-yo dieter, who thinks once she gets to a certain size she will be happy… Well, I got to that size and was ...

3 Things to Help Heal Your Relationship with Food & Your Body

When I was 18, I used to have this pair of jeans. It was my favorite pair of jeans. Sadly, it was my favorite pair of jeans not because of how they were cut or how they made me feel, but for the simple fact that they were the smallest pair of jeans I owned that I could literally squeeze into. In my disordered eating and self-loathing body image days, these jeans were my badge of honor. Of course, no one knew that they were my smallest pair of jeans, ...

You’re Allowed to Eat Whatever You Want “Just Because”

This past month has been an emotional rollercoaster for me. All the feelings. All the emotions. All the life stuff. My stomach has been in knots. I haven’t even wanted a Reese’s. You know, those peanut-buttery chocolate coated candies. They’re one of my favorite things, especially the holiday varieties. They come in trees around Christmas, eggs for Easter, hearts for Valentine’s, and I’m not sure if they offer any other holiday-themed options, but I am sure that when I see these special edition packs, I stock up and I hoard ...

Don’t Wait Until You’re 95

My Nana is 95-years-old. But, if you ask her how old she is, she’ll tell you that she’s 96. She thinks it makes her sound “wiser.” For real. Ever since she turned 90, she’s been adding on a year to her real age. One time she told me she was two years older than she actually was. Because she was so used to the rounding up by a year, and she still liked adding on a year to sound “wiser.” This has led me to double checking her driver’s license for her ...

How to Move on When Someone Says Unkind Things About Your Body or You

I overheard the conversation from the hall. No one knew I was there. Well, except me. I could hear her telling my mom that my sister and I were chunky. And “getting rather large” and it’d be best if we lost some weight, especially “Corinne.” I was 11-years-old. At 11, I hadn’t heard of this concept of ‘weight.’ Let alone, someone “getting rather large.” Sure, I was teased a lot by other little kids. Who would make jokes about my frizzy hair or bad acne. I had horrible, horrible acne. ...

A Mistake Most Women Trying to Feel Healthier & Happier Make

  My husband’s legs are smaller than mine. I remember when I first realized this during our dating days. I walked right up next to him, put my thigh next to his thigh and exclaimed, “My legs are bigger than yours!” My ego wanted him to say, “No, they’re not.” Even though I knew they were. But instead, he said, “Yea, so?” I stared at him a few seconds not knowing what to say. I felt hurt and frustrated at the same time. But, I knew these feelings weren’t logical. ...

Are Your Too-Small Jeans Keeping You Stuck?

I used to have this pair of jeans. They were tiny and not representative of my body’s true frame, like at all. But I clung onto them. For the simple fact that they were small, I used to be able to fit into them and to be totally honest because I hoped to maybe be able to wear them again… But then, one random day, I realized I was never going to wear them again. And, it was more than OK. Because the crazy things I did to fit into ...
