Back in my mid-twenties (a while ago now!), I went through years of feeling so self-conscious about how I looked that it stopped me from doing things I wanted to do.
I never felt like I deserved to be fully visible in life.
And for two years I was controlled by food....to the point where I would sometimes turn down offers to meet friends for dinner because it didn't fit in with my food plan for that day.
I had gained weight, and was unhappy. So I lost lots of weight through a very restrictive diet, and...yep, I was still unhappy - in fact I was probably even more unhappy then because not only was my overall unhappiness still there, I was depriving myself of the foods I enjoyed in case I put weight back on....and that made me feel even worse!
For me - and for most of us - my unhappiness was actually nothing to do with what I weighed.
It was about other aspects of my life that I was choosing to ignore, thinking everything would be fine as long as I looked a certain way.
So if you're currently trying to change your body shape to feel happier about life I know how you feel. And I know it's not a nice place to be.
I realised over time that no amount of obsessing over how I looked or what I ate was ever going to make me happy.
And I realised what WAS going to make me happy - living my life and enjoying it.
You see, I also realised something else......it's my job to be me.
I look the way I look and I can either accept it and enjoy my life, or I can tell myself stories that cause me distress...stories like 'I should be slimmer' or 'I should look younger' or 'I should be prettier'.
So I chose to accept it and enjoy my life. I chose to enjoy food. I chose to build into my life lots of small action steps (habits) that have transformed my happiness and my confidence.
And now I've found a wonderful sense of balance and freedom in my life and my food choices.
I started running Body Confidence Live events around the country, and then became Scotland's first IBCC-certified body confidence and life coach because I simply can't bear for people to be stuck in the same way I was, or worse.
To be stuck feeling like you're not good enough. Or to be stuck on yo-yo diets that are making you miserable.
Life doesn't have to be that way.....I have proved it and my clients prove it time and time again.
So now I want to help you in the same way that I help others..... to find the daily actions that will make you happier and more confident than ever.
