It’s not about the food. Binge eating is a symptom. Restricting your food is a symptom. Orthorexia is a symptom. Weight gain is a symptom. Weight loss resistance is a symptom. It’s deeper. Your body is screaming at you asking you to show up for it. Asking for your love. Asking for your attention. That anxiety you feel isn’t going to kill you. Your brain thinks it is, but your body never gives you anything you can’t handle. That loneliness you feel isn’t because you need someone ELSE. It’s because you need YOUR love. The love only you can give to yourself. You can’t get it from anything else outside of you. Stop chasing it. Start BEING it. That’s where the healing is. Slow down. Breathe. Let go. YOU are the answer you’ve been searching for, all along. How are you giving yourself love this weekend? Give your body what it really needs. 99.9% of the time, all that is is your love.
Earlier today I went back into my memory to answer a question for one of my certification sisters. It was so easy for me to go back & embody that energy of panic, worthlessness, & self-hatred. I remember what it was like. I remember it well. It felt like I was talking about a stranger, but a stranger that was very familiar... like someone I knew intimately in a dream. But it wasn’t a stranger. It was me. The fear of not being wanted because I wasn’t fit enough overwhelmed me & hijacked my existence. The anxiety of believing that if I gained an ounce of weight, no man would ever want to be with me robbed me of my joy. I desperately lied awake at night, trying to figure out a way to stay small. I had to lose more weight. I had to stop eating. I had to find a way. It became my life - my only priority & my biggest enemy. It took hitting rock bottom to rise above the pain & defeat my eating disorders & the underlying fears that caused them. It wasn’t easy. It took a lot of commitment & unwavering faith. I had to strip away pieces of me that were no longer serving me & watch them die, all the while watching my true self emerge from the rubble. I took down my fears, overcame my eating disorders, healed my body, & learned the truth. I got my victory & now I want to help you get yours. I went through all of that so I could help you. My purpose is to serve you & support you through your journey to YOUR victory. I don’t do your healing, I guide you through it. I believe in you SO much that I want to do something special for you. For the next 12 weeks beginning tomorrow, I’m hosting LIVE group coaching calls for FREE. If you join me I promise to give you the answers you’ve been searching for. I vow to share the truth with you. I will show you the way to your breakthrough. It’s already in you! We just need to bring it out. I know how much pain you’re in. Believe me, I do. But I also know the solution. If you’re ready to finally be free, I want you to join me for tomorrow’s webinar. You CAN be happy in your body. It DOESN’T have to feel this hard. There is a way out. I’m here to bring you to it. The link to register is in my bio & in the comments below. See ya there
Hi, you. I’ve missed you! I’ve been thinking about you all week, & I just wanted you to know all the things I love about you. It’s all true. You are truly a gem in my life. You have no idea how much love I have for you! You’re reading this for a reason. There are no coincidences. I specifically wrote this just for YOU to see. Think about that for a minute. I tell no lies. Of COURSE your butt is great, ALWAYS. AND the thing I love most about you has nothing to do with what your physical body is like & everything to do with what your energetic/emotional/spiritual body is like. It’s the way you make me feel. You light me up. You give me purpose. You make me laugh. You lean in when I need support. You cry with me. You let me be ME. THAT is why I love you so much. I am so grateful for you, & I just thought you should know that. The 2nd half of the year is about to rock your world. I’m re-energized, revitalized, & renewed. The only question I have for you is: Are you ready for it? If you’re ready to take your life & health to a new level & get Inspired to Thrive, make sure to turn on post & story notifications, cause shit is about to get lit 🔥 I love you, ♥️Jamie
Having patience can be hard. It can be SO hard. Especially when you feel like you’ve been waiting long enough. Patience is something we learn, & it comes along with trust. Trusting ourselves & trusting God. That doesn’t ever mean it comes easy. Our egos like to trip us out & make us feel like we’re always late to the party. We feel like we need to catch up or we’ll always be behind. They tell us that if it’s not now, it will be never. If we don’t heal NOW, we won’t ever be healed. This is a lie you should never believe. It’s hard because we’re addicted to timelines. We like to put due dates on things & then measure our worth as humans based on whether or not we “made the cut off.” Things like: •I’ll be married by the time I’m 30. •I’ll have kids no sooner than 32 but no later after 37. •I need to have my dream job by 28. •I need to know my purpose by the time I’m 25. •I’ll lose 30 pounds in 30 days (...🤦🏼♀️) ... The list goes on & on & on. We are HOOKED. And when we DON’T make the cut... when things don’t go according to our plan, we judge & shame ourselves, truly believing that we failed as humans. LEGITIMATELY! I did this SO much when I was sick. My clients struggle with this, I STILL struggle with this, & even MY coaches are still learning this. How do you react in situations that require patience? What if you have to wait for your food to come out at a restaurant? What if there’s a long line at the grocery store? It’s in these little moments that we can have the awareness around what’s going on, so that in the BIG moments we can immediately shift into trust, patience, & peace. When we know that everything is happening FOR us in Perfect Divine Timing, we are able to realize that it’s never about OUR plan. It’s about the bigger picture. It’s God’s plan. His plan, while we may not love it at the time, is ALWAYS better than anything we could dream of. God is never late. He is ALWAYS right on time. I know it’s hard. I know you’re hurting. But choose to learn from this. Show up for yourself in a bigger way today. Trust. Let go. Be patient. Your time is coming. I love you, ♥️Jamie
Stop signing yourself up for suffering. You are no longer available for it. It’s not even an option for you. It’s just not a thing for you because you know that suffering is not mandatory. Pain is a part of the human experience. Suffering is of our own making. Every time we deny ourselves something, we’re choosing to suffer. What if you knew you could feel anxiety AND feel love at the same time? You can. What if you knew you could feel uncomfortable in your body AND fully accept & acknowledge it as it is simultaneously? That’s possible. What if you knew there was a way for you to ensure you ALWAYS made the best decision for you, your health, your happiness, & your success? There IS. As humans, we have this unique ability to complicate EVERYTHING & make things SO MUCH HARDER than they actually are! At any given moment, you have the option to CHOOSE... To choose acceptance or to choose hate & shame... To choose happiness or to choose fear & anxiety... To choose ease or to choose struggle... To choose to honor your human experience or to choose signing yourself up to suffer. You choose. It’s your life. The only person responsible for your experience on this planet is you. So ask yourself... Are you signing yourself up to suffer? I was. Eating disorders are actively CHOOSING to suffer. We’re punishing our bodies in the most extreme way by denying them LIFE. Why? When I got a 2nd chance at living through recovery, I made a vow to myself & to God that I would fully embrace & cherish every single moment. I am 100% unavailable for suffering, & I won’t allow you to be available for it either. Take your name off of the sign up sheet. Put your hand down. Your suffering is over. Choose life. Choose you. Suffering is an option that you no longer are open to. What’s the first thing you’re gonna do with your new freedom? I love you, ♥️Jamie
