Do you ever feel like you are so far from the person you know that you are capable of being? For the longest time, that was the way I felt…even when I was doing everything I could to “be a better person”. If you relate, you are really going to appreciate this article.

I can remember, back when I was perpetually dieting, I would tell myself I was going to completely overhaul my diet on Monday,

I hope you are having an amazing week :) I wanted to create a blog to let you know of an opportunity to work with me. I am teaching a class tomorrow called, “How to Discover + Eliminate What Is Draining Your Energy” and would love to have you.

To say I was exhausted last year is an understatement. It felt like no matter how much I “took care of myself”,

One of the things that I have realized is how important boundaries are when it comes to creating a life that makes you happy. The women I work with (myself included) struggle a lot with this. So I wanted to write you ladies a little reminder…I know I could use it from time to time.

It’s OK to say no…even if it means someone else’s feelings are hurt.
It’s OK to let go of people who hurt you (intentionally or unintentionally)…even if they don’t want you to.

Do you feel stressed out all the time? If you answered “yes” to that question, know that you are not alone. Many of the empathic women I work with struggle with stress, even if they aren’t fully aware of it because it just seems like an everyday part of life. Why? Because empaths are highly attuned to the energy of those around them (often beginning at a very young age). This can cause stress in ways that we become accustom to over time.

Guilt and shame. Two heavy emotions that really weigh us down and prevent us from living our best life. They are also two emotions that I am very familiar with. Especially when it comes to gaining weight.

Like the many women I work with, I started worrying about my body and my weight at a very young age. Even though I was a thin child, my parents and family members would remind me that I had “bad genes”

Are you stressed, tired, and gaining weight? From June 2014 to December 2016, I was really feeling this way. It seemed like the longer time went on, the more tired I became and the more weight I gained (despite eating pretty healthfully and exercising daily). I couldn’t understand what I was doing “wrong” that was causing me to feel so tired. The answer? Stress over a prolonged period of time and a lack of personal and energetic boundaries.

1. What your body needs changes at different points in your life (i.e. diet, exercise, etc.). So if what worked at another point in your life isn’t working now…your body may need something else.

2. Losing/gaining weight is about so much more than calories in vs. calories out.

3. Never underestimate the effects long-term stress can have on the body…weight gain being a huge one of those effects.

4.

Recently, I had a client share her struggle with shame and guilt around gaining weight in the Losing Your First 10 Pounds course group. Because I know there’s so many women who struggle with this very thing, I wanted to share my response and advice to her. Here’s what she wrote:

I’m having a really rough day. I have been feeling really sick for a few days so I went to the doctor to get antibiotics…

Have you tried every diet and exercise program out there with no long-term luck? I know I have. Throughout my weight loss journey, I experienced two distinctive things when I would try to lose weight: I’d either plateau after losing some weight and the program would stop working for me OR I’d not be able to keep up with my plan/program because it wasn’t sustainable and required too much from me. Can you relate?

The thing is,

I tend to attract highly energetic sensitive women/empaths to Vitality. These women have a tendency to put on weight, even if their diets are healthy and they are routinely working out. I experienced this myself and wanted to share with you what I learned while gaining (and now losing) the weight associated with these reasons. Here are three reasons that aren’t associated with excessive caloric intake that can cause empaths to gain weight:

Reason #1 –
