I am torn about my before and after pics.
I love that they captures dramatic change of losing 40 pounds and having so much less generalized inflammation. I FEEL like I went through a huge transformation and I feel so much better and healthier and think the photos are evidence of that.
I certainly don’t want to disparage my before photo. I don’t want to put that me down. I was having a great time at a party! I think I look pretty darn nice. And happy. I was happy – damn it. And I was awesome. I don’t want to disrespect myself and all the amazing things I was doing (living, working, raising children, having fun with friends, trying to be a good person, etc.)
Just like you. Just like all of us. Whatever our weight.
None of that previous awesomeness is diminished because I lost some weight. I hate to play into the idea that weight means more than it does.
Our weight and our physical appearance are truly such a small portion of who we are, so transient and so changing.
C’mon people death and decay are coming for us all! Right?
I was torn about becoming a weight loss coach because I don’t really care how much you weigh. I actually have one of those brains that can’t really tell if people have gained or lost weight, unless it is really obvious.
But. The big thing I am ever-so-excited about and that I realized I HAD to SHARE with you is feeling good when I eat and feeling good after I eat!
It is really astonishing. And I feel great about having steady energy. No more dramatic ups and downs and “Oh my god I am on such a sugar-high from that cookie (gluten-free :)) and frappachino how do they expect me to function?”
It has freed up so much time and space in my brain and it has made me SO much less scattered and anxious to give up my food addictions and learn what food makes me feel good.
I also do like shopping for pants more now.
And I like to get polka-dot and suede pants because I can find them in my size.
For a while I only wore yoga pants.
Which was fine. I want to be clear I am not judging you-whatever damn size you are.
I am just inviting you to change how you feel everyday, how you move in the world and how you take care of yourself.
(And you might also lose some weight :))
Here is a link to the challenge that begins next week.
I’d love if you would join me and the other incredible women there.
And also, here is poem that I love, that cheers me, lifts me up and comforts me. One of my favorite lines is:
“You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”
Beautiful. Let’s do that.

Wild Geese By Mary Oliver
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place
In the family of things.
