My time with Shelby completely changed my life – not only my relationship with food. When I found her online I was already on my way to healing my relationship with food. After about 25 years of bulimic behaviors I was in recovery. But I was still very “crazy” about food. It was always on my mind. had gained about 50 pounds and was afraid any type of restricting would make bring back my eating disorder. So I felt very stuck, and in retrospect I can see my world was very small. Being obsessed with food and weight took up the majority of my thoughts.
So I signed up to work with Shelby and I began to make some shifts in my thinking that led me to where I am today – diet freedom – but so much more than that. Today I make food choices that make me feel good. Nothing is off limits but I am empowered to make good choices for my body. Throughout my work with Shelby I also made the choice to quit drinking alcohol – and this was definitely not something I believed was possible before. Now I see it as a healthy choice that I welcomed into my life and not as something I’m sacrificing for weight loss or any other reason.
In the end I did lose weight. I gave away my scale, but I’m measuring progress by how my favorite clothes fit. But there is far more that happened than weight loss. I gained confidence. I lost my chronic heartburn and stomach issues. I was able to leave an unhealthy romantic relationship. My time management is so much better – and I have routines that I created that are important to me and that I choose to follow through with.
Working with Shelby changed my life and opened up my world so much. I recommend working with her and I am so grateful I came across her website that day last January.
