About this author

I’ve been just where you are. I spent 24 years of my life on and off diets. I hated my body, obsessed over food, and wouldn’t let myself really live until I lost more weight. But with a lot of support (and trial and error), I finally made peace with food and my body.

I founded Body Love Wellness is 2008 for women like me and you. Over the years, I’ve helped hundreds of clients finally get off the dieting roller coaster, develop healthy eating patterns, feel confident and at home in their bodies, no matter what their size. Using a unique combination of judgment-free coaching, Divine Feminine connection, and Health At Every Size principles, I support my clients in living the lives they were meant to live.

I returned this book. I was really interested at first, but it read like a history major's thesis, replete with chapter-long digressions and incorrect word usage. It was just a bummer, man.

Beautifully written and incredibly boring. I couldn't get through it at all. I even tried jumping around and was just totally bored.

“I think fitting in is highly overrated. I’d rather just fit out... Fitting out means being who you are, even when people insist that you have to change. Fitting out means taking up space, not apologizing for yourself, and not agreeing with those who seek to label you with stereotypes.”
Golda Poretsky

“Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.”
Golda Poretsky

“You are not broken. You are not a problem to be solved. Solving your “problem”, whatever you perceive your problem or problems to be, is not the key to happiness.”
Golda Poretsky

“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”
Mark Twain

“Humor is reason gone mad.”
Groucho Marx

“I've had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it.”

“Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...well I have others.”
