Highlights

“Once I became an entrepreneur and started working from home, I started gaining weight.”

“I would use food and eating as an excuse to take a break from my business when I actually should have just given myself a break.”

“I would turn to food as a way to comfort myself and to almost numb the stress and the rollercoaster ride that we call entrepreneurship.”

“I just felt like I wasn’t me. When I looked in the mirror it didn’t feel like I was looking at myself anymore.”

“I decided that my number one, biggest goal for the entire year was going to be losing 30 pounds.”

“I had been so focused on all of the actions that I thought I needed to take to lose weight that I had forgotten everything I knew about energy work, manifestation, and the Law of Attraction.”

“I was going to spend 5-10 minutes a day visualizing myself in my dream body.”

“The weight started to come off faster than it ever had before.”

“I committed to following my intuition and letting my intuition guide me in all the decisions I was making about exercising, nutrition, and my body.”

“I began to embody the version of myself that already had lost the weight and already had her dream body.”

“Physical action alone is the slowest way to get something that you want. Your intentions, your energy, and your mindset need to be aligned with the things that you want in order for you to manifest those things successfully.”
