When I sat down to eat my food consciously and without distractions at first it was scary. I felt very vulnerable because I was not used to having this kind of relationship. I started eating and noticing the food in my mouth, the texture, the flavor, the temperature and suddenly there was this explosion of pleasure and desire and I kept chewing and chewing and I started to feel so satisfied, each bite seemed to last forever and the waves of pleasure and nurturing it brought were so deeply fulfilling I wanted to cry. And then I became angry. Who was it that took away my right to this pleasure? Why was this taken from me? I blamed my father, who, before sitting down at most meals would tell me not to overeat and be careful what I ate because I was chubby. And I always ate in a constricted, hurried, guilty state. But now I am working to reclaim the pleasurable way of nurturing myself with food and re-create my relationship with food in a way that feels good and right for me." ~Emilia Nagy, Relationship Coach, www.MyMojoManual.com
Before I contacted Sarah, my biggest concern was my weight gain over the past year. However, when I reached out to Sarah for a helping hand, she took the time to really get to know what the problem was. Through our discussion I realized that although my weight gain (we're talking 30lbs in one year, without pregnancy) was a health concern, what was truly bothering me with my way of life was my emerging lack of self confidence due to my recent poor body image. Not only was this revelation a huge help from Sarah, but she also helped remind me of my personal value. Hearing that alone was a self confidence boost. Since seeking Sarah's guidance, I have learned how to focus on the positive aspects of ME and stop focusing so much on the negative aspects of my unhealthy weight gain. She inspired me to "love the skin I'm in" and remember that it took a year to gain those 30 pounds, so they're not going to disappear overnight. Armed with this new frame of mind and accepting my physical body as just one part of me has actually helped me make the leap to making healthier decisions with my nutrition, and embracing exercise that I enjoy as opposed to doing the "right" exercise. And I am proud to say that I have lost 6 pounds that have stayed off!”
My vision is a world where women empower other women to heal
My story in short . . .
Officially trained in Eating Psychology, Holistic Nutrition, Education, and Health, my story has been my greatest teacher. My biggest lesson is that healing really begins through CONNECTiON: Connection to self and to a truly empowered community.
So, I created the Empowered Women community on Facebook, not really knowing what I was in for at the time. And then I started to teach anything and everything that made an impact. I learned that there was a hunger for something true and different. Not just another fitness plan, diet, workout, or fitness accountability group. These women wanted to heal in a big way. And the more that door opened to let women just speak without judgement, the magic started happening.
I trained at The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute, and completed my Bachelors in Classical Studies and Masters in Education. I studied and taught, that was always what felt right. And, I had no idea the impact it would begin to have on other women one day. I have been thrilled to bring this work together with Danielle LaPorte's Desire Mapping as a Desire Map Facilitator.
We formed the Empowered Queen Tribe community and it continues to grow everyday. I have the honor of working one-on-one with women looking to heal in a big way: heal from a tortured relationship with food cravings and binges, heal from struggles with weight and body image, heal from low immunity and fatigue, heal from overwhelm, heal from unhealthy habits, and more. We don't mess around with quick fixes or what we know doesn't work out longer than thirty days. This is a journey back to yourself, demanding more for your life because you deserve it.
My clients are women, mothers, families, and other health coaches. They all have unique reasons for working with me but share one thing in common. They want a solution that is truly sustainable, not just another short-lived program that quickly loses it's appeal after 30 days.
