…means to me that you remember you are multidimensional and completely unique.  Like the seasons of the Earth and the phases of the Moon, you change.

You are Wise, Creative, Sensual, Nurturing, and Ambitious.

You are quiet and bold, reserved and wild, a mother and sexy, angry and loving.

 

And because there is no one like you anywhere, you are going to do life, motherhood, work, and self-care differently from everyone.

 

So why are we always trying to fit ourselves into a box? And why is it that even though we so desperately long to create a life that truly feels like OURS, everything seems to get in the way…

We’ve been sold this one-size-fits-all solution to happiness. Like if we can just look like a model, get married, buy a cute house, and have a couple kids, then we’ll be completely fulfilled.

 

Before I had kids, I devoted years of my life to being at peace with my body and challenging the “body box” that so many women feel pressured to fit into. The freedom and joy I experienced birthed my international program Live More Weigh Less, where thousands of women have found freedom from emotional eating and fallen in love with their unique and powerful bodies.
 

When I had my first child, I felt pressure to fit myself into the “good mom” box. I stopped thinking about what I wanted and focused on how a “good mom” is supposed to act.  As I spent my time running errands, making meals for my family, doing laundry, and making sure my kid was getting everything he needed – all while financially supporting my family – I lost touch with who I was and what I wanted.
 

But the truth is that women are innately powerful, insanely unique, and have these wild, magical, creative souls. We can act like 5 different people in the span of a day. This is what makes us amazing.
 

And when we embrace this range of how we express ourselves, and how unique each of us are, we create a life that is as distinct as our fingerprints. None of us are meant to do motherhood the same way, work the same number of hours, or have the same kind of marriage.  When we try to fit ourselves into a box, we lose the magic of who we are.
 

And on top of that, we’re taught that our job as mothers is to run around like crazy making sure our partners and kids are happy and growing, getting to all of their activities, being fed and loved and fulfilled… while we are left too tired and overwhelmed to do the same for ourselves.
 

And what’s even worse, when we get real about how unfulfilled we are and how disconnected we are from our desires and dreams, we feel guilty for wanting more, and we just put on a happy face and keep going like the “good mother” that we should be, wondering why everyone else seems to be enjoying life while we’re starting to feel so empty inside.
 

After I had kids, everything looked great on the outside: Handsome Doctor Husband, cute curly-haired kids, and me with a flashy Instagram feed and successful business. But on the inside I was dissatisfied, overwhelmed, and deeply unhappy.
 

I’d lost my connection to my soul and a higher power, I didn’t feel nourished, I dreaded getting out of bed in the morning, I was constantly in survival mode, and I had no idea who I was or what was going to make me happy. I honestly felt dead inside.
 

Every time Jonathan and I would talk about our future, my throat would tighten. Something about the life we were creating didn’t feel right to me.
I finally started to create space for myself, which allowed me to see the ways I was prioritizing the life I felt like I “should want” instead of the life that was a true expression of who I am.
 

I spent the next year soul searching with the intention of forging a deep connection with my soul and the magic that exists in the world around me. And I just kept asking myself, “Who am I and what do I really want?”
 

This led to our buying a retreat center in Medfield, MA, where women come to connect with who they are and what they truly desire. Seeing this dream become a reality so quickly was the most crazy magical thing that’s ever happened to me.  
 

Jonathan and I strive to create lives that are aligned with who we are and are always watching out for ways in which we feel pressure to fit into a box. Our house is a bit wild, always filled with flowers and magical objects. I strive to create a space that tells the story of our family and who we are as individuals. Since I no longer do a bunch of stuff I don’t want to do, my days can be a mix of work, rituals, and downtime.  
 

Since I’ve embraced the life that is a true expression of me, I have a better with relationship with my children – they are happier and more settled. Jonathan and I are in sync and laugh way more. I’m not immune to the same ups and downs and challenges as a woman, but there’s a comfort and strength I feel from my life being completely mine. I just feel alive, creative, and whole.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “There is no “right” type of person to benefit from Sarah’s life-altering work; there is no “one” lifestyle or business strategy that it she is better aligned with. I sat in a room of engineers, mathematicians, health coaches, models and actresses, yoga instructors, and so many more. Some say Spirit, some say Divine Feminine… for me I follow God — but in our hearts as we sat in the circle and supported one another, nothing could be more clear than we were all channeling the same life-giving force and working together to change the world.”

    – Chellie
  • “In 2010, my roommate and I won fluke tickets to an NYC bridal expo, where I first met Sarah. Her celebration of pleasure, the body, joy, beauty, and gratitude immediately impacted me. Her emails started to have a HUGE impact on my life right away… even though, she was a weight loss coach! I wasn’t really trying to lose any weight, but her method, which was all about infusing life with so much magic and pleasure that food could be FOOD rather than an escape, still resonated so much. Ultimately, she was teaching women to listen to their bodies, lead with their hearts, and learn from their intuition. She has truly been one of the most profound teachers of my life.”

    – Kim Pendleton
  • “Sarah has a unique way of getting to the heart of what you need versus what you believe you need.”

LET’S CONNECT ON INSTAGRAM

  • WholeWomanChallenge Week 3 >> Wear Red Lipstick <<.
::
This week’s challenge is an old favorite: wear red lipstick and post a pic. Look, I get it - wearing bright lipstick can be scary. Maybe you don't always feel like standing out in the crowd - but you can and you're worth it. When we don't feel good in our skin or even our lives, we hide. But the hiding only contributes to our not stepping into our power. Wearing lipstick can be a spiritual practice of being seen, vulnerable, and feminine.
::
Grab a bright and beautiful shade of lipstick today and get prepared to feel powerful.  It's also way stronger than coffee. Please, please post a pic of you puckering up with #WholeWomanChallenge and tag @sarahjenks. It will feel weird and edgy, but that's the point;).
::
And I’d love to know in a comment, how does bright lipstick make you feel? Powerful, self conscious, more feminine? Do you have another go-to beauty ritual that makes you feel on top of the world? I want to know.

  • @jbrajtbord is a man of many talents and we can now add delivering babies to the long list of Super Dad traits he possesses. This picture was taken a few minutes after Hazel was born, and 10 minutes before the midwives arrived. After just 40 minutes of labor and 3 quick pushes, Jonathan caught Hazel like a champ. Happy Father’s Day my love. Thanks for always being there when I need you the most 😂.

  • All Hail the Grandmothers. @lisacjenks
  • #WholeWomanChallenge Week 2 >> Buy fresh flowers <<.
::
One of my own goals this summer and one of the reasons I wanted to host this challenge, is to find and encourage more moments of feminine softness. We spend so much of our time doing, doing, doing, and don’t often get moments to pause in the middle of the day and connect to the wild, creative, beautiful, feminine part of ourselves.
::
My favorite way to connect to this sacred feminine side is to buy fresh flowers. It's a way of saying, "I'm amazing," and adding beauty, a connection to mother nature, and a pause to your day. Don't wait - buy yourself some fresh flowers today, snap a pic, and share it with #WholeWomanChallenge so we can all see your beautiful blooms.
