The story of Teresa. A story of falling into body-love.

Fall is in the air.

Teresa can smell it, she can sense it, she feels it in every part of her body, mind and soul.
The morning temperatures are crisper, the days are noticeably shorter and the distinct energies of the changing season have arrived.

Some may be sad as the summer months are coming to an end, but Teresa is excited, she’s breathing a sigh of relief.

Teresa, who has been fighting her body and food for as long as she can remember, is ecstatic that summer is over.

Summer, for her, means excruciating pain: showing more “flesh”, wearing clothes that feel anything but “safe”, finding excuses not to go to the beach, to the pool, to bbqs that she’s inevitably being invited to, comparing herself to those that are blessed with bodies that are thin and “simply” feeling ashamed, less than, too much and being confronted with all of herSelf in ways she just can’t cope nor does she want to.

For me, as a coach, summer offers amazing opportunities to step into body-confidence.
For Teresa, who is still learning to love her body, summer is the time of the year she fears the most.

Things are changing, of course they are. But it’s a process.

Now, however, fall is coming.
Now, however, relief is imminent.
Now, however, comfort is almost here.

Teresa can feel it.

How about you?
Can you breathe easier?
Do you already dance to a different beat?
