I coach servant-leaders to transform their bodies to serve with heart and soul.
I have lost over 50 pounds since April 2020 by letting go of sugar and flour in my diet. This change has transformed how my body responds to food, by reducing the cravings that lead to overeating and weight gain (and regaining the weight after getting to goal weight) and the unhealthy relationship I had with my body mentally even when I was at my goal weight.
Part of this is due to very specific and scientifically-proven changes that occur in the brain when addictive substances like sugar, flour, cocaine and heroin are ingested. The changes occur in thinning of the dopamine receptors which are triggered by addiction, and which need higher doses of the addictive stimuli. We are not to blame for this physiologic response in our brain that causes insatiable food cravings. Another reason we are not to blame for our inability to lose weight is due to the hormone leptin, the trigger to our brain to stop eating and get active. Our brain becomes unresponsive to leptin when insulin levels rise, and this is happening in our country due to so many of us eating overly processed foods full of sugar and flour! This has contributed to our obesity epidemic.
I want to help people transform their bodies so we can do the work we are called to do with health and vigor and energy and love!
Be Fearless in Faith in Your Body, Heart and Soul
I have told you a little about myself because I hope through my experience to offer you a way to begin to see your own innocence, to have self-compassion to forgive yourself and never blame yourself for life events that did not go the way you wanted.
My vision is a world where you are willing to practice your faith as you choose. Your faith may be spiritual, and it may also be faith in yourself to make changes, or to become the person you want to be, or to achieve the success you want to achieve. My mission is to support you to be fearless in faith in your body, heart and soul. Be willing to learn that your body, heart and soul are completely connected to who you are. Be willing to learn that you are already whole.
One of my intentions is “Today I am willing to practice loving myself exactly as I am.” As a Certified Fearless Living Coach, I can support you to create an intention for living that allows you to choose faith in your body, heart and soul, if you want this. A Fearless Living intention is a proactive statement that excites you, empowers you, challenges you, and inspires you to take action. What world are you choosing to create for yourself and for all of us?
You can create your own positive, proactive, creative, faithful, hopeful, loving, purposeful Fearless Living intention right now. Just complete the following:
Today I am willing to practice_______________________________________.
You may decide to be willing to practice forgiving yourself or others, seeing your own innocence, loving and accepting yourself and others, making healthy choices, being more kind to yourself, or speaking your own unique truth. Whatever you choose, make it your own.
Use your intention faithfully every day for at least 30 days. Some people use intentions for months or even years. Let your intention be easy to memorize, and place it on your bathroom mirror, in your kitchen, or in your car. Remind yourself to say it several times a day.
Remember this! I believe in you and I have faith in you and your intention.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid [fear], but gives us power [soul], love [heart] and self-discipline [body].”
