Now, I am finally in control. I feel my body was saying nourishes it, have awesome energy and finally feel happy. No longer does a piece of food have such power over me until I cave in. And how I look at my body and mind, and reward myself is a noticeable change. Such a shift in mindset to encourage, indulge, reward instead of so much negative self talk. What a transformation in the past 2 months. The best thing is I can’t begin to imagine ever going back. I didn’t just learn techniques to implement. I implemented lifestyle behaviors that will last forever.

FULL Story:

I can’t even begin to try and imagine where I was before the Skinny Dip Society – 8 weeks ago. It feels so foreign and no…not me! I have noticed dramatic changes in my mood, energy, mindset and mindfulness. I feel like I am living a more fulfilled life now and am doing the things I have always wanted to or hoped to have as habits, but because of decreased mood, motivation and lots of negative self talk and beating myself up I never did. My new relationship with food is absolutely amazing. I was often feeling stuck in my routine, didn’t know what to shop for, what to cook and yet I was always eating, constantly surrounded by food and indulging on the wrong things. Because of those bad habits I ate too much, suffered from sugar cravings and crashes, weight gain, followed by restriction diets and just yo-yoing all over. Now, I am finally in control. I feel my body was saying nourishes it, have awesome energy and finally feel happy. No longer does a piece of food have such power over me until I cave in. And how I look at my body and mind, and reward myself is a noticeable change. Such a shift in mindset to encourage, indulge, reward instead of so much negative self talk. What a transformation in the past 2 months. The best thing is I can’t begin to imagine ever going back. I didn’t just learn techniques to implement. I implemented lifestyle behaviors that will last forever.
