Are you struggling with poor body image? Exercising all the time, restricted eating, and declining social plans is not a healthy way to live your life. On this episode of The Fed and Fearless Podcast, I’m joined by one of my students, Natali K., to talk about her journey from restrictive and obsessed to relaxed and healthy.

Coming from a background in ballet, Natali had unrealistic and unhealthy body image viewpoints imposed on her for years. She was always striving to lose weight, grinding away hours of her life at the CrossFit gym, never letting a carb pass her lips, and struggling to lose just a little more weight.

For Natali, she didn’t know what else to do. She was wasting so much time, energy, and money into a health and fitness routine that was consuming her and not giving her the results she wanted. That’s when we crossed paths; the investment was an easy decision for her and worth it because Natali gained not only her health but her life back.

After working together, Natali has realized that when she actually loosened control, worked out less, and ate a more balanced diet, she was able to lose the extra weight her body was holding on to and achieve a healthy balance. And now, overall, she’s so much happier.

The Fed and Fearless coaching program was something Natali justified investing in when she compared the price to the cost of the supplements, gym and CrossFit memberships, and other unhelpful ways she was spending money in her quest for the perfect body.

One concept I teach in my coaching program is how you can do the least amount possible to achieve the best results for your body. Natali realized that by cutting down the hours she spent in the gym, relaxing her meal planning, and actually spending time with her friends and family, she was able to feel happier, reach her healthy weight, and make time for the best parts of life.

When Natali changed her mindset by working with me, participating in the group discussions, and trusting that God had set her on the right path, her life opened up for her. Relationships she’d neglected because she was at the gym now flourished. She even started seeing a wonderful man and is looking forward to marrying him soon.

Natali found a healthy balance between working out, eating well, and enjoying a wonderful life. And her body image has improved

What’s your relationship with the gym? Do you find that you’re prioritizing working out and restrictive eating over spending time with your loved ones? How do you feel when you don’t make it to the gym?

“What really enticed me to the group coaching was that I knew I wasn’t alone in this journey to pursue freedom and that there were other women with me, walking this journey together.” (9:50)

“The investment was so worth the freedom to know that this is what my body needs.” (13:10)

“We don’t have to look a certain way to gain happiness or look a certain way that society tells us, especially in whatever world that is that we live in.” (37:20)

“Investing in yourself means that you are worth your goal and the freedom that you’ll experience in, not only your health but also mentally and spiritually is worth the investment to then continue to pursue your God-given passions and calling that He’s given you.” (39:55)
