    Last chance for LMWL special offer + How to stop living in a body you hate

    You know you’re beautiful, right?

    Sometimes it’s hard to see or believe when all you can see is what you want to change.

    I struggled with my weight for over half of my life, and I often think about what it would’ve been like if someone had been able to show me how to really take care of myself, how to not be pissed every morning while trying to find something to wear, how to not cringe when I saw my reflection or why avoiding dates, get-togethers, reunions – LIFE – all because of my weight was not the answer.

    That’s a really painful way to live sister.

    And it’s exactly why I created my signature program, Live More Weigh Less.

    After all the ups and down, so many diets I can’t even keep track anymore, the magic (and disgusting) potions I drank just to lose a few pounds, I finally, finally, FINALLY learned the real secret to putting an end to emotional eating. And, along the way, I discovered the secret to living a really good life too.

    Live More Weigh Less is perfect for you if…

    • You’re so tired of living in a body you hate.
    • You’ve exhausted every diet method known to man.
    • You’re avoiding life, telling yourself you’ll do this or that after the weight is gone.
    • You’ve got an open mind and you’re ready to try something totally unconventional.
    • You’re desperate, but willing…​​​

    I can assure you I’m not going to suggest some ridiculous or painful diet to get to your ideal weight. You just need someone who “gets” you to give you some simple steps and straight advice so you can feel beautiful and truly happy.

    I do hope this training can be the pathway to your experiencing a new kind of freedom and save you some years of shame, struggle and restriction.

    The doors are open! And, if you enroll in the next 4 days, by 8:00 pm ET on January 18th, you’ll get our special pricing for January.

    If you feel the pull, I hope you’ll join us for Live More Weigh Less.

    Love,

    Sarah

    P.S. The answer to your freedom is already inside of you. It’s about being in flow, not in pain. Being in tune, not in chaos. xo

    My before and after

    I was choosing pictures to put on the mantel in my home and I came across a photo from my wedding in June 2011.  I looked young, beautiful and really thin.  A rush of thoughts poured into my head…

    Will I ever look like that again?

    Does Jonathan compare my body now to how I used to look?

    Will other people judge me for gaining weight since my wedding?

    I’ve been in a deep inquiry about my body, women’s bodies, what is ideal, what is beautiful and what is healthy over the past year.  Since having Marshall and Annabelle I have found myself in a very different body.  There have been times I have judged myself but mostly I have felt in love, connected with and very at home.  I have welcomed and relished in my more fleshy, curvy, soft, supple self.

    When I think back to my wedding day, I was in a place of being in constant fear I was going to gain weight.  Although I didn’t diet or starve myself to lose weight, I was still very attached to being thin and believed that my weight should be fixed and that gaining weight meant I was less beautiful and less healthy.  It was a perfect example of how I looked great on the outside but on the inside I felt trapped and rigid.

    special_offer

    So I picked up this picture of myself at my wedding day, and I vowed to never feel the pain of looking different than I did on that day ever again.  Because, my life isn’t about the size of my waist, but how free I feel in my body

    The freedom I feel now is from knowing that I am at my ideal shape and size for my current life phase, constitution and season.  I don’t need to look how I did when I was 25 to feel beautiful.  I know that I will gain and lose weight my whole life, and it’s normal and natural and means nothing about who I am or my worth.  I am deeply committed to taking impeccable care of myself.  There are always periods when this feels impossible, but I forgive myself and come back to what I know I need – movement, good food, space, love and acceptance.

    This month I want to make it really easy for you to say YES to yourself. Your whole self, not just focusing on how you look, which why we have a special one time offer on my signature program, Live More Weigh Less. My goal is not to help you lose weight, but to help you feel free. I want to teach you how to take amazing care of your body and soul so you can create your ideal body for your current life phase, constitution and season. I want you to experience what it’s like to be in a body that may be curvier or softer but feels luscious and gorgeous.

    Life can’t be consumed by a constant drive to produce an “After” photo, 20 pounds lighter than you were a year ago.  Life is about knowing that you already are your “After” photo – beautiful, grounded, feminine, free.

    Here’s my Before and After.

    In the comments below I want to know where you are in your body journey right now.  Are you striving to be at your lowest weight?  Are you up for seeing what it would be like to let that go in service of taking better care of yourself? When you stop and think, do you actually love your body now?  In what ways are you the most beautiful, grounded, feminine and free you’ve ever been?

    I can’t wait to hear from you.

    Love,

    Sarah

    P.S. If you are ready to do the deep work around your body, I hope you’ll join us in the Live More Weigh Less.

    Want to lose weight more than anything?

    Every time I get on the phone with some of my Live More Weigh Less women I have some version of this conversation…

    “Sarah, I just can’t shake the feeling that I want to lose weight more.than.anything.”

    I tell them I get it, I’ve been there.  And then I ask…

    “Tell me what your life will look like when you lose weight?”

    “Well, I’ll be more social and have an easier time making friends. I’ll be more relaxed, less uptight and fight with my husband less.  I’ll feel more sexual and be more adventurous.  Just you know, be more UP!”

    So essentially these women want to feel confident, at ease, connected, sexual and energized more than anything.  All great things to want.  But here’s where my issue is…

    Where did we learn we have to be a certain size to have those things?  And who told us that losing twenty pounds would magically change our entire personality?

    We are so hardwired to believe that life will be better and easier when we are thin. 

    special_offer

    WHERE DOES THIS COME FROM???

    I honestly have no idea, which is where you come in. Can you remember when you first learned that your personality would change if you could lose some weight?  Did someone tell you this?  Was it because women in magazines or in movies seemed so carefree?  Is this built in our DNA from birth?

    What I do know is that this can be unlearned, and it isn’t until we can clearly see that our actions and desires are in control of our lives, not our body size, that we can finally create everything we want for our life and body.

    So I want you to ask yourself, WHY do you want to lose weight?  What are all the changes you believe will happen when a new number on the scale shows up?  Write them down…

    Now, this is super important, listen closely. Eating less cake and more broccoli is not going to make you more social or feel more in control of your life.  BUT being more social and creating more calm in your life from your heart and soul will result in eating less cake and more broccoli because we no longer need to rely on cake to be our friend, we have real friends now.

    Maybe that’s it…. we see women in our lives who seems at home in the world and in their bodies and naturally eat healthy.  We assume that it’s her body that is causing her personality to be so open, calm and inspiring, but it’s actually the other way around – the way she is in the world is causing her body to be her ideal weight.  Live More, Weigh Less in the flesh.

    I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.  I’d love to talk about why we hold this belief and where you think you learned it.  I am determined to get to the bottom of this.

    Love,

    Sarah
