Welcome to my blog! I invite you to follow along as I begin, yet another plunge into a weight loss attempt. I've tried so many diets, as have most people I know. I wish I could say that I'm overweight today, because I had no idea what causes one to accumulate excess pounds. I admit that I'm all to familiar with the drill. The problem is not a lack of knowledge. As I learned from reading Martha Beck's "The Four Day Win", my mind has served as a tyrant predator willing my body to cooperate with "the diet de jour". I've spent four months just working on my mind to get it ready to support my body and work in sync, so I can stay with the program in a relaxed manner and actually reach a goal weight. I'm a North Star Life Coach, so I'm committed to being authentic, open and real. Feel free to make comments, or just enjoy reading about a new process, not diet, to get the brain to buy into the goal of wellness.
As an empty nester, I was looking for an Open Window. I found it through attending a Life Coach Training with Martha Beck and her pod. Through cross country moves, chronic pain, rocky times in marriage and just life itself; I've found the necessity to go to "Plan B" on many occasions. Bottom line: Control is an illusion. Change is a part of life. I like the words "resilient" "tenacity" "grace" "loving"
"strength", etc. My life is all about living into those adjectives and reminding myself that I'm human and deserve just a bit of grace and understanding. At this point in my life, I'm a wife, mom of two twentyish sons, an authentic woman, educator, life coach, and one who gives God credit for anything that I've accomplished on planet earth. My first day of life was in the summer of 1954.
As a life long learner, I am humbled by the fact that I'm still a work in progress. God really isn't finished with me yet.
