Do you? Really? Be honest with yourself.
Do you hate all of your body or just certain body parts? Like your thighs or your back fat, or your tummy or your wrinkles?
If you do hate or dislike parts of yourself, how does this make you feel? Awful right?
As women, we are conditioned by magazines and advertising to think that we are not pretty enough, slim enough, smooth enough, tanned enough, toned enough etc. Models are impossibly beautiful, slim and toned, and getting more impossible with photoshop. Even models and actresses don’t look like their photos do in real life. They probably hate parts of themselves too. Check out this photo of Madonna below, or this video
Advertisers and marketers want you to hate parts of yourself. They want you to feel dissatisfied with where you are now, so they can sell you the solution to your problem.
Sometimes this is not so bad, because you might actually have a problem that some product could solve. However it has gotten out of hand, and as a society we are chasing impossible ideals of beauty and fitness.
When you chase an impossible ideal, a part of your mind knows that this is not possible and gives up. But you don’t stop wanting to be that way, and being dissatisfied with yourself. This is not healthy and feeds into the emotional eating cycle creating sadness, guilt, frustration and more chocolate cookies, wine and skipping the gym.
Look around you at the local gym or pool or shopping centre. This is what real women look like. Some slim, some fit, some curvy, some overweight.
However it is possible to be slim and healthy, and feel good about yourself. You might think that you’ll feel good about yourself and love yourself when you are slim, but you must love yourself as you are in order to become slim.
Remember that your body is more than just how it looks, even if you are overweight now, you can love your body just as it is, you can love it for what it does for you, how it moves and gets you around, you can love it for the potential it has. You have unlimited potential for fitness and health. Your body is regenerating and creating new cells all the time. Every single cell in your body is replaced within a year. That’s amazing! Your body is an incredible organism and you can love it and be grateful for it as it is. Give yourself permission to love your body right now.
Notice how that feels. Notice how much more likely you are to nourish yourself with healthy food and do exercise to move your body when you are loving yourself.
Let me know how you feel about your body right now…

“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
