Develop A Solid Foundation: 

Feeling stuck in the cycle of yo-yo diets and relying on willpower to eat healthily and feel vibrant is frustrating, to say the least. You are not alone in your frustration.

Why does maintaining a consistent healthy eating routine seem like such a struggle?

The reason is straightforward: without a solid foundation of a healthy relationship with food, no diet or burst of motivation can eliminate the ongoing mental and emotional battle with food. 

While depending on willpower and restrictive diets might feel doable for brief periods, the rollercoaster journey feels exhausting. The harder you try to restrict yourself, the more challenging it feels, and you likely know in your heart & soul that it's time for a different approach.

To create a long-lasting way of eating healthy that feels physically, mentally, and emotionally easeful, the foundation of a healthy relationship with food is essential. Once this foundation is in place, consistently nourishing yourself well becomes your natural way of being. 

This program will give you the ability to apply mindfulness, cultivate a supportive mindset with food, and adopt new habits to do just that. 

No more yo-yo dieting.

No more fixating on willpower and restriction.

No more guilt.

You get to experience Easeful Eating, savoring your meals, and releasing the grip of restrictions and guilt.

You very much deserve that! And you deserve to feel great in your body as a result of how you nourish yourself. 

What if you could free yourself from the constant struggle, guilt, and the yo-yo effect tied to your eating habits?

What if this process felt more like a mindful and enjoyable journey?

What if you didn't need to focus on discipline and restriction?

That's not just a possibility; it's the core focus of this program.

‚ú® If you know that it's time for a different approach, then this program is designed for you. ‚ú®

"I have been longing for a safe, non-judgmental space to learn new ways to address my overeating habits. I learned how to recognize my habits. I learned that I don't have to be perfect or restrictive to be successful. Having a group setting was wonderful because it allowed me to see others recognize their struggles and find new strategies for success. Shelly has such an amazing, calm, and comforting way about her that helped me feel at ease during this class. I am forever grateful to have found her."

(*Testimonial from a shorter program, Overcome Overeating, where we worked with the same approaches offered in this program.)

Janet Keller

"This program opened my eyes to many eating habits that were not serving me well. Shelly helped me realize that being on auto-pilot when it comes to eating was definitely something that could be changed with just a bit of self-awareness. The biggest takeaway is that I now feel a sense of control around eating that was not there before I took this class. I also appreciated the sense of community that Shelly built. Caring, like-minded, nonjudgmental participants made me feel at ease immediately. Knowing that I was not on this journey alone made for an interesting and enjoyable class."

A little bit of Shelly's story with food....

I grew up eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) filled with processed food, fast food, lots of white bread, soda, and very little vegetables. The cookie jar was always open for business, and I didn’t have influences in my life that taught me how to relate to food in a healthy way, regulate what and how much I ate, listen to my body, or make choices that supported me in being healthy or feeling good in my body.

I’ve been on a journey of transformation with food for the last 25 years. There are a lot of chapters to my story that include self-education, formal education, teaching myself to cook healthy food, going to rigid extremes with diets, fasts, & cleanses, swinging in the other direction after so much restriction, and finally learning to listen to my body, develop a healthier, more mindful relationship with food, and find balance, ease, & flow with how I feed myself.

Through my own journey and in coaching many women over the years, it became crystal clear to me that when it comes to transforming how we eat, the biggest work we have to do is not with learning what or how to eat, but within our relationship with food. I dove into this work head first both with myself and my clients over the years.

You can learn all about healthy eating, but If your relationship with food is wonky, it will all continue to feel like a struggle.

Healing my own relationship with food has been a journey, and it’s been worth every step of the effort. It’s allowed me to eat a consistently healthy diet that is not rigid at all. It’s balanced and supports me in eating in a way that makes me feel great in my body. My weight, energy, and health are consistent. It doesn’t feel like work or a struggle for me - feeding myself well is an act of self-love and something that I enjoy.

I have all the tools to do so, and in this program, I’m sharing them with you.

I empower the women I work with to focus on cultivating a healthy relationship with food through mindfulness, self-exploration, mindset shifts, new habits, listening to their body, and applying self-love. 

THIS is what creates consistency & sustainability in feeding yourself in a way that makes you feel good both physically and emotionally.

When you join this program, I'll support you & empower you to develop this for yourself, too.

Bring Mindfulness To Eating

Most of us were never taught to be mindful with eating, our culture certainly does not influence us in this way, and this is at the core of SO much struggle around food.

When you develop the habit of mindful eating, absolutely everything changes. What, why, when, and how much you eat naturally shifts‚ÄĒyour entire¬†relationship with food changes for the better. The emotional and mental struggles with food are eased and you naturally feed yourself in a way that makes you feel healthy, light, vibrant, and energetic.¬†

Empowering Mindset Shifts

You’ll take on transformative mindset shifts that cultivate enjoyment, balance, and empowerment with food. Together, we'll navigate key principles reshaping how you think about food, relate to it, and feed yourself. Release the pressure of restrictive thinking, and focus on nourishing yourself in a way that brings enjoyment, pride, and feeling great in your body as a result. Tune out the loud, pressure some voices of restrictive diet culture, and develop a fresh and enjoyable perspective on food, your relationship with it, and your daily nourishment.

Develop New Habits 

Throughout this program, you'll receive weekly guidance on cultivating mindfulness, fostering mindset shifts, and learning to trust your body's cues for eating. By consistently practicing these principles, they will integrate into your daily life, becoming second nature and influencing your natural approach to eating. You'll develop the habit of regularly checking in with your body and mindset regarding the food you consume until it effortlessly becomes the norm. I'm here to support you in reaching a new healthy relationship with food through exploring new habits as we work together in this program.

“When I reached out to work with Shelly, I was hundreds of pounds overweight with bad skin, insomnia, terrible acid reflux, excruciating constant stomach pain, terrible credit, and an absolutely beautiful marriage to my soulmate and two wonderful creative and intelligent children that loved me and wanted what was best for me. I was at a crossroads.

For me… Every. Single. Thing. Has. Changed.

My mindset has evolved, and I’m continually learning new ways to take care of myself and others in a healthy way. My body has changed. I’ve lost over 60lbs and 35 inches. Even though I have a long way to go, my body is changing. I am in my body now, and it’s absolutely everything I thought it would be. There isn’t a goal or desire I had when I began working with Shelly that I haven’t either accomplished or refined into a better or more ambitious goal or desire."

"I initially reached out to Shelly because I was looking to lose weight and eat healthier. I had tried every workout and eating program that existed. I would always have short-term success but nothing would ever stick. I felt like I was trying the same thing over and over again just in a different program. I was stuck! Shelly’s approach to building healthy habits over time made more sense than counting calories, macros, and doing extreme workouts. Shelly has been my coach for 2 years now and she has given me a new perspective in every aspect of my life. The things I have learned from Shelly go way beyond eating healthy and losing weight. Every time we meet we uncover a new area for growth. Shelly’s humility leaves me feeling understood, never judged, and fully supported. I am a better version of myself because of Shelly’s coaching. Working with Shelly is one of the best investments I have made for myself!"

You will get super cozy and be guided into deep relaxation. From that relaxed place, you will be guided through a visualization to connect with your body to focus on cultivating love and deeper listening with your body. Zero mediation experience is needed - only a willingness to relax, listen, and follow along.
At the end of the meditation, you will have a little time to write anything that came up for you while it’s fresh in your mind, and then as a group, we will briefly share a little about our experience before ending the call.

"My work with Shelly has been truly transformative. Over the time I’ve worked with her, I’ve learned to listen to myself, trust myself, and love myself. I now have better ways of dealing with anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, as well as a better relationship with food. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone willing to dive in and do the work. She’s an amazing guide."

"My intention was to become aware of deep-rooted emotions involving food. I walked away with a sense of empowerment and a lot of realizations on why I do what I do. New self-awareness around my relationship with food, new awareness regarding how I use food as comfort mostly around fear. A new awareness around how I perceive myself and knowledge for redirecting my thinking. It was one of the best personal growth experiences I've ever had."

Shelly's Note on Weight Loss and Why It's Not the Focus Here

If you are new to my philosophies as a well-being coach who works with women & food, I have a lot to say about this topic, but here are a few brief points of understanding on why I rarely refer to weight loss. 

  • ¬†For so many women, the weight loss industry and diet culture have done¬†a lot of damage to women's relationship with food and their relationship with their bodies.
  • The restriction of¬†weight loss focused¬†dieting is a big part of why women feel such a deep struggle.¬† Overeating, emotional eating, binging, and generally struggling¬†with making balanced, healthy food choices can be a natural effect of so much restriction. (any psychology you read on the topic will agree)¬†
  • ¬†Only about 5% of restrictive, weight loss focused diets last long term, keeping women in a frustrating repetitive cycle of loss, gain, and struggle which can further damage their relationship with food and their body and make things feel even more challenging as time goes on. I focus on developing lifelong healthy eating habits in my work with women.
  • ¬†A focus on weight loss tends to encourage a belief within us that our worthiness or beauty is attached to a number on the scale, and I will never encourage that. You are a fully worthy & beautiful goddess¬†at any size.¬†

So what do I encourage you to focus on instead?

  • ¬†Learning to eat mostly healthy whole foods that you truly enjoy so that the ‚Äėdiet‚Äô you develop is sustainable, tasty, and never feels like restriction.
  • ¬†Healing your relationship with food, so that the emotional struggles & guilt associated with food dissipate and you choose to feed yourself nourishing foods in the right amounts with balance & ease consistently.¬†
  • ¬†Cultivating love for your body and feeding your body from a place of love rather than from a place of¬†feeling like you need to change it to love it.
  • ¬†Learning to listen to your body and allowing that to guide you in how, when, what, and how much you eat. Your body knows best.
  • ¬†I focus on helping women develop long-term lifestyle habits and changes that are sustainable and support them in long-lasting health, energy, and feeling good in their bodies with as much ease as possible.

A common side effect of this work is weight loss. It's just so much more healing and self-loving to achieve that by focusing on the above things. It's also way more sustainable. 

  • ¬†I'm NOT saying you should not desire to lose weight - that's a common desire! It's ok! My approach though, is to let go of that being the focus.¬†
  • ¬†Instead, focus on the above things that will support you for the rest of your life in feeling fantastic both in your body and mind. It allows you to step off the rollercoaster of yo-yo dieting, and into lifestyle habits that¬†last for your lifetime.
