From poor body image, cigarettes, diet pills, and binging....
Yep, I've been there...I started mistreating my body with diet pills at age 14 and didn't clean up my act until I was 33. It took me having to be a role model to my 2 daughters to finally understand how to treat my body better. It has been 17 years since, and I can still struggle with body image and expectations. But, now I treat myself with kindness and compassion instead of mentally beating myself up and making the situation worse.
...To being passionate about helping others find alignment with their priorities.
Do you know what helped me change my life? I found out that I liked myself better when I lived within my priorities. Part of that discovery was that I felt better when I moved; walking , dancing, running, stretching, lifting weights, or doing a Sun Salutation. Did I alway want to do it? Nope. Did I always feel better after? Yep. I actually became the go-to for other women who wanted to feel good and look better. So, I learned more and became certified in everything that interested me (or helped me help someone else)...
