Love Your Body – Really? Is that Possible?!


Updated: February 15, 2013


Remember the first, second and twentieth time you watched Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman?  There she was with her perfect body in the opening scene as she rolls over in bed in her slum-lord apartment ready to start the evening of driving around in a Lotus Esprit with Richard Gere.

Did you know she had a body-double for that scene?  Who would have guessed it?  She was leggy, skinny and in perfect shape to play the L.A. Cinderella story.

What would have happened if that up-close-and-personal scene of this sexy, street-smart woman showed a few love handles, perhaps a bit of cellulite?  Oh the horror.

In reality, that IS the reality.  We are not perfect, we don’t look like the body doubles in movies and yet we are still sexy, street-smart, adorable beings.

But how can we love our bodies when we are in a constant state of comparison  – to others and to the body we used to have?  There are plenty of factors that contribute to our present state as measured on the scale – health issues, family struggles, financial concerns and the general state of the world.  But who says all of that has to be our exclusive burden to bear? Who is dictating that we are failures or less than because our middles are not the perfect shape and proportion to the rest of our bodies?

You have to learn to love your body as it is in any moment.  Self-compassion means embracing your shape now, not as it used to be, and not as you hope it to be some time in the near or distant future.

You can certainly stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself that you love your body in the most convincing voice you can muster. However, unless you know this in your soul to be true, you will give up and give in to your old patterns of self-loathing.

Let me help you!  Let me share what has worked for me – through the most challenging life experiences and personal A-Ha moments I have survived and have learned to love me – all of me.  Every essential and sometimes extra inch of me.

That is why I talk about it in my book, on my website blogs and in my coaching classes.  I want to share what works and what it means to love yourself. I’ve also taught my Weight Release Energetix® Coaches how to help more people than I can possibly reach on my own.

My new, Love Your Body! Your New Best Friend program is starting in just a week and now is the time to actually learn to release your cares, release your weight and love your body.  It is an essential companion program to my book, Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much.

There are two levels to the program and you can choose the one that’s best for you.

Program starts February 25th so don’t wait!
