How Bethany Lost 55 Pounds Without Dieting

I don't know about you, but I've never liked or trusted the before-and-after photos you see in so many dieting ads.

First off, the photos are usually grainy, and it's hard to tell if it really is the same person.

Second, I've never liked the idea that someone is "better" because they've lost the weight.

To me, you are perfect and beautiful as you are, no matter what the scale says.

All of that said, I do want to share with you the remarkable transformational journey my client Bethany has made after completing one year in my Women, Food & Forgiveness Academy.

With Bethany's generous permission, I am sharing her story.

Bethany before and after participating for one year in the Women, Food & Forgiveness Academy. Yes, she lost weight; but can you see what else she lost—and what she gained? Look deeply into her eyes in both photos, and you'll find the answer.

Bethany came to the Academy frustrated and depressed by her lifelong challenges with food, weight, and body image.

In her words,

I wasn’t happy with who I was and how I was feeling, and I felt like I was not my best self with my family, friends, and colleagues. I was also really hoping to avoid getting diabetes and/or needing weight-loss surgery, which I was afraid might be my future if I could not lose some excess weight.

After using the teachings and tools in the Academy, here's where Bethany is now:

I have a much healthier relationship with food now, and the understanding of how to nourish my body as a sign of self-love. That is an amazing accomplishment.

I do still occasionally indulge in less-than-healthy foods, and I enjoy those. The foods that I no longer enjoy, I can just stop eating, which in itself is a revelation!

I now realize that my current circumstances are no longer set in stone, and they do not define who I am. It excites me to know I can heal from my past and have a beautiful and promising present and future because of it.

"Simply put, healing the internal wounding affects and transforms EVERYTHING."

When Bethany joined the Women, Food & Forgiveness Academy in June 2018, she was struggling with depression, physical pain, and a sense of loss and frustration about how to change her predicament. Nothing was working. Listen as Bethany describes how her time in the Academy profoundly shifted not only her relationship to her food and her body but indeed her entire life.

And Bethany's not the only one....
