Should you lose weight or just accept yourself as you are?

Posted May 18, 2016 in weight loss, body confidence, self-love and 4 more


One of my health coaching clients recently asked me if it's ok that she wants to lose weight even though her weight doesn't have a negative impact on her health. Should she just learn to love her body as it is?

Her question made me realize that weight loss has suddenly become out of fashion with the current body acceptance movement.

Don't get me wrong, I love that it's now on trend to love our bodies. We've always had the right to be happy regardless of our shape or size, but the media and society is finally sending that message.

It's amazing to see women of all sizes on the cover of Women's Running or in Modcloth and Target ads. 

But how does weight loss fit into to all that.

I ordered a lot of books on Amazon over the past year...that I never read. 

Don't get me wrong, I met my goal of reading a book a month. You can see what books I read here. But I was on a major personal development book kick, and ordered books I knew I would want to read. 

So I thought I would share some of the books that I purchased and plan to read in the new year and some others that are hanging out in my Amazon cart.

Summer Body Goals

Posted June 7, 2017 in summer body goals, body positivity, self-love and 5 more

Imagine if we obsessed about the things we loved about our bodies instead of the things we hate. Make your summer body goal to love yourself more!


What if your summer body goals included loving your body more, thinking kinder thoughts about your body and speaking kinder words about your body?

Those goals feel a lot different than lose 10 pounds, get a flat stomach and get rid of cellulite.

I've spent summer after summer with the second set of goals, and they always left me feeling totally miserable. I spent too much time comparing myself to others, wishing my body was different and avoiding all activities that involved swimwear or shorts. 

It's totally OK if you'd like to lose a some weight or get stronger. But what if you began your journey by learning to love your body?
