They make excuses for not joining in the fun… and run from the waters edge to cover up.
They hide under baggy sun shirts and boardies and avoid photos like the plague.
They snap at their loved ones, when really – they’re just cranky from the horrible things they’ve been saying to themselves.
And if that’s you – I know exactly how you feel.
There was a time when I would cringe at the thought of going to the beach and avoid it at all costs.
I told myself I didn’t like the sand and the waves…
But really, I was horrified at the thought of someone seeing the evidence of all the negative choices I’d been making for years;
– The daily red lindt ball 3 pack I would pick up from the 7-11 on my way back to my car
– The hot-chip baguette with butter I would eat at the restaurant I worked at, telling myself I needed the energy to work all night
– The glasses of pinot grigio that I would drink with my bestie each night after work to “wind down”
And it was showing in all the lumps and bumps, cellulite legs and chunky arms. I didn’t even own a swimsuit, and I would never have been caught dead on the beach!
The moment that changed it all was when I realised that there was a reason I was keeping myself fat.
It wasn’t just because I loved those creamy little chocolate balls.
My mind was driving me to these choices so I could protect myself.
It was only when I dealt with my subconscious mind that I was able to make a lasting change to my behaviour.
Now that person is such a distant memory it seems like another lifetime ago.
This is me after an awesome snorkeling adventure on holidays in Hawaii, I’m proud to say that I’m happier in my skin than I have ever been.
After having 2 gorgeous children, I’m no longer in a battle with my body and hiding on the sidelines.
And today years later, I just bought a RED BIKINI, because my inner dialogue says:
“Hey! You look GREAT! And you DESERVE a red bikini to feel good in!!”
It wasn’t always like this, and it’s been a journey.
I can still remember how it felt, disgusting, heavy and deeply ashamed of myself. Each night I would lay in bed, squeezing those extra rolls and wish that I could just cut them off.
THIS is also why I am so passionate about helping other women find happiness and health again.
It all begins with your mind – how you see yourself and what you believe is possible.
That’s why my work is all about aligning your subconscious programming with your conscious desires.
Yes, it can be done.
You can be comfortable in your own skin.
And yes, it can be possible for you too.
I’ve passed the big 4-0! I’ve now ‘released’ 48kgs, since the birth of my son 2 years ago. To Kylie, Selina and all my GBQ sisters, you helped me to get out of my own way, so I could coach my inner critic and encourage my cheerleader. I am getting my pre-babies mojo back and am in a better headspace than when I was fighting fit! I feel like GBQ really delivered on the greatest gift, self-love and clarity, and has given me the confidence and conviction to continue my journey! Thank you.
With Kylie’s help I released the hopelessness & anger I was using as an excuse, and have stepped out of my shell with a vengeance! I’m now clear on what I want to do with my life and I’m taking steps towards making it a reality, and in doing so my entire eating habits have changed… the ‘hunger subsided’ & I’ve stuck to my better eating habits and gym workouts easily. It’s been amazing!
Working with Kylie has been life changing. Kylie helped me get back in touch with my own body, taught me how to nourish myself and get my glowing, gorgeous body. She helped me move from self-loathing to self-love. She taught me how to consciously turn down the critical voice and turn up my inner cheerleader. Without a doubt starting with your mindset is the first place to start on your weight loss journey. Lasting results for sure and totally life changing!
What I have gotten out of the course can’t be measured. I glow from the inside out! For the first time in years; I am happy because I am happy! I love myself – I can actually look in a mirror with no self loathing… I love the woman smiling back at me and not just because my body has changed on the outside – I have changed from the inside and it is a reflection!
Everything has really changed, I finally let the girl inside out. I feel like my life has really just started. I’ve had a massive increase in personal power (from zero), sense of possibility, happiness, resilience, CONFIDENCE! Reached my first weight loss goal, I have gone from a size 12 to an 8-10. I love myself and respect myself for the first time, I cannot express how much this has changed me. Thank you does not even cut it.
I have been struggling with my weight and feeling of not being good enough for as long as I can remember…This has changed for me now. I have had more awakenings and realisations and learnings than I thought possible in the past few months. This really is SOOOOO not about the weight. I TOTALLY get that now.
I have loads more energy… I’m eating so well and exercising when I can. With my 1st baby I couldn’t cope with the emotional roller-coaster that is pregnancy. I ate, and ate, and ate non-stop. My head is in such a great place at the moment. I owe it all to Kylie and your Goddess Body Quest program x
