I became a health coach because I want to help women overcome emotional eating so they can stop wasting energy on yo you dieting and guilt trips and searching for that magic pill that will solve everything.
I’m sorry to say there is no quick fix or magic pill. I have been there. I have tried it all and failed over and over! I started my first diet in my early teens and it was an up and down rollercoaster for over 15 years. This affected my mental wellbeing, energy levels and positive outlook on life. My relationships and career suffered as a result.
I can now happily say that all that is in the past for me now.
Finding my happy place
How did I find my happy place? I can’t say that I had any kind of epiphany but through my obsession with dieting and diet books I discovered the wonderful world of personal development and I was hooked. However, despite becoming a self proclaimed #selfhelpjunkie I was still eating my emotions and yo yo dieting. I would be inspired for a while but then life would get in the way and I would be back to square one again. What was the turning point for me?
Health coaching. Through health coaching I was able to apply all the knowledge I had gained through personal development. It was the support and accountability of coaching that enabled me to take action, change my habits and mindset to create a life I love. I decided to become a coach because I wanted to help other women feel the same.
