This is Mendi’s story….
“For so long I thought that for my life to continue to get better, I had to continue changing and “becoming.” Truth for me was, for life to get better, there *did* have to be change! It wasn’t change of self though- not initially. It was change of thought.
I decided to start this program, I uncovered that that for me nutrition really
only played a small role. We ate healthy. We didn’t eat fast food, we bought
organic, …BUT my body was still gaining weight, year after year. I was still
lost in my own skin and saw a version of me I no longer recognized.
This program has taught me to dig deep within my soul to uncover my own root causes and how to release it. That right there has been life changing for me and my family. Releasing what I’ve been told to believe, gone along with, and built my life around. Releasing that which no longer served me, nor did it belong there.
It’s been a wild and emotional process! I have realized I had essentially buried myself under all of these constructs, fears, beliefs, and ideas that this is what “me at 46” was going to look like.
I’m peeling layer after layer off. Those layers that I wore like an armor until I saw it for what it was. It was simply a barrier keeping me from my truth. So, for me my weight loss transformation has been a bridge to something bigger that has served me in ways I could have never imagine.
Since I’ve started this incredible program, I have lost over 30lbs, 25+ inches, and aside from the weight I am transforming into the best version of myself ever and yet this journey of mine is far from over. I have been surrounded by some amazing men and women on the same kind of journey. We are all leaning in closer to aligning with who we really are, peeling off the old layers, connected spiritually in beautiful ways, and taking huge steps toward living out our own purpose to continue touching the lives of others and elevating them!
do you put yourself out there Mendi”?
Because it’s not about me. I’ve been shown that my gifts are to show others that THEY can change anything they want to in their life, just the way I have. And If I share my vulnerable self-enough, maybe…just maybe…I can help someone who was as lost as I once felt.
If I can lose 30lbs, rebuild my relationships with my children, spouse, friends, family, take charge of my thoughts, rework my bad habits of stress eating & drinking, remove depression from my vocabulary, work on being proactive instead of reactive, and create a life that I never knew possible… ANYONE can.”
So very proud of you Mendi!!!
