A Life-Changing {Giveaway} from Betsy Fry Coaching

I’ve got a FANTASTIC giveaway lined up for you guys today.  A few month’s back I hired the lovely Betsy Fry to be my life coach.  I’ve been forever changed by the process, and I’ve really set my sights on my goals, dreams, and perspective in a new way as a result of working with her!  (Click here to read my first month recap, for example.)

Now, I am BEYOND THRILLED to have a chance to share Betsy with each of you… and to give you an opportunity to work with her FOR FREE!!  Sessions can be held over the phone or in person in Colorado, depending upon your schedule, preference, etc.  Super flexible!

Without further ado, allow me to introduce Betsy Fry of Betsy Fry Coaching

Y’all are probably here to checkout what delicious recipes that our infamously creative, Kelly, has cooked up!  Usually, I’m here to do the same.  Seriously, have you tried her bubble-up enchilada casserole  or the avocado mousse?   My mouth starts to salivate just thinking of them!

If you recognize my name it’s because Kelly has written about her experience with life coaching a few times, and I am lucky enough to be that coach.  Her tenacity and humor have etched her way onto my heart.

And because I adore Kelly so darn much, I wanted to offer up two coaching sessions for one of her readers. During our time together, I’ll guide you through where you’re feeling stuck and create an easy plan for you to stick to your goals in the future.

Not sure what you’d get coached on?  In two sessions, I could teach you how to eat intuitively.  What exactly does that mean?  Read on, NTTC friend, read on…

How many diets have you tried in your life?  How many diets have failed?  Why do you keep thinking that a diet is going to work?

I’ll save you a lot of time, money and hunger:  Diets don’t work.  They never do and they never will. It’s time to move on.

So what are you suppose to do if you want to lose weight and diets are not the answer?

It’s simple:  Start listening to what your body wants and you will lose weight.

**Insert record scratch sound here.**

Intuitive Eating has been making a splash bigger than Kimye’s cover on Vogue.  It’s been covered by national news programs, written about on tons of blogs and is trending on social media.  Even if you’re not trying to lose weight, it’s a practice that you’ll thank yourself for getting into.

Here is the gist….

Intuitive Eating | No Thanks to Cake

That’s it.

Eat when you’re hungry.  Letting go of emotional eating and boredom eating can feel like a hard thing to do.  First you have to establish a new way to deal with your emotions.  Follow these steps until you’ve got it down pat.  If you’re someone who likes to eat when you get bored, then pickup some new hobbies, call a friend, fill up your life with things that bring you true joy…not just the temporary kind that you find in a box of cookies.

Stop eating when you’re satisfied.  Have you ever been around a little kid when they’re eating?  When they are full, they stop eating.  There is no thought process involved, they just know when they’re done. Tap into your inner child, allow yourself to slow down the eating process and start to notice your body signals that tell you that you’re satisfied.  At that point, drop the fork.

Eat things that make you feel good.  Be honest with yourself, does eating pizza and cookies really make you feel good?  I’m not talking about momentary pizza bliss.  I mean, do you feel sustained and ready to tackle the world after eating grease and sugar?  Probably not.  Now think about how you feel when you eat whole foods with serious nutrition.  Your body likes and craves fuel.  Give your body what it needs and you’ll stop craving crappy foods.

Move your body.  When you’re eating like crap, your body doesn’t have the fuel it needs to sustain healthy movement.  When you’re eating well, you’re feeling well and your body wants to move.  Working out + eating well are like peas + carrots, they just go together.  If you’re not used to moving, then start out slow, before you know it you might actually enjoy breaking a sweat.

Trust yourself.  You and your body want the same thing:  to be healthy and taken care of.  It might feel odd at first to cut the calorie counting and lift the food restrictions, but your mind will thank you for the much-needed break.  Once you deprogram your dieting mind, your body will take charge and it will lead you to a place of peace and trust.

Take some time to incorporate these steps into your life and watch how your relationship with food changes.  Remember that you’re breaking free from years of dieting and reprogramming your mind and body to trust the way that it was meant to function.

A client recently told me that this type of eating has, allowed her to feel free for the first time in years.

Now it’s your turn.  Let your restrictions go and set yourself free.

    This sounds just what I am looking for. Right now I am reading the book Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch and feel that I am finally on the right track!

    I like Betsy’s idea about really feeling your emotions, and after clicking the “follow these steps…” link, I enjoyed her example of the stories we tell around our emotions. I do let myself jump 10 negative steps ahead. Just this morning, I awoke after several days of indulging to see that I’d gained back 10% of the weight (over 5 days!!) that I’ve worked really hard to lose over 9 months. Mentally, I went into a crouched defensive position with some desperate thoughts flying through my head. Is this real? How did I let this happen? What am I going to do to stop this? Is it all over now? Those are just a few of the random thoughts I had in just the 30 seconds after my scale experience. I’m a few hours removed from that experience, and having calmed a bit, I realized I just needed to get back to the basics of what I’ve BEEN doing these last 9 months, and that it would all be ok. And, it is all OK. Anyway…here’s my comment, but I wanted to say thanks b/c Betsy Fry has already helped me! :O)

      Jessica, I love that you were able to calm yourself down and get back to a place of gentleness with yourself. Something tells me you’re one amazing woman :)

    I have read the intuitive eating book, and absolutely love it… but I struggle with implementing its principles in my day to day life–would love some coaching.

  4. Lisa says

    What an awesome giveaway…thanks to both you and Betsy for doing this! Crossing my fingers!

  5. kim says

    i confess…right before i read this i ate 2 leftover cupcake tops from easter. :-( the day just got to me and i did it. then i read this post and realized i didn’t follow one of those principles as i was eating them. in fact, i let the bad things from today get the better of me. thank you for the post and the giveaway. you have inspired me to move on from my poor eating choice tonight and get the book and get back on track.

    kelly, i love getting your blog posts every day as i am heading home on the train. your recipes are fabulous!

    This is something that would wholly benefit my life. I’m a 911 operator and I unfortunately allow the stresses of the job to over power my ability to make better choices. I worked very hard to lose the weight I’ve already lost, but I’m this frame of mind thats preventing me from doing more, and I KNOW I need to break out, and yet still can’t do it. What a giveaway!

      Lori, it sounds like you’ve done a lot of great work already! The mental shift will really give you the power to keep going. Checkout the book Women Food and God by Geneen Roth (it’s not religious, promise)!

  7. Lisa says

    Oh my, I am so ready for Betsy!! I have been struggling for far too long and I think a life coach is just in order! So, I just know I’m going to win this contest, lol!
