"Mindset was the hardest and the most enjoyable piece of the program for me. I started working with Natalie Jill in a deep dark hole of depression.
I was constantly eating out because I didn't know how to cook and eating comfort foods was the norm and there was no limit to how much I was eating. It felt good eating in the moment, but every time self-disgust would shortly follow when I was done. It was a vicious cycle.
I had gained so much weight that I no longer recognized myself in the mirror. I wasn't even able to look into people's eyes when I talk to them because by then I had zero self-confidence. I was constantly in fear of judgement by how I looked because family and relatives would constantly make my weight a topic of discussion.
I came into the program with a lot of doubts: Can I do it? Can I measure up? Am I smart enough to comprehend the knowledge? Will I be able to adapt to the new eating and exercise habits? Can I sustain it? Will this program really work for me?
As I gained ground on learning how to eat I was able to create a momentum. I stuck with the basics because I was not a cook. I kept it simple and soon my bloat was gone, I could feel an increase in my energy, mental clarity, a drive that I haven't felt for a long time, the confidence that I can do this and excitement to learn more.
Now, all I want to do is pour into others. That is literally how I truly feel. My cup is literally overflowing… I want each person struggling to hear the truth! YOU ARE CAPABLE, YOU ARE POWERFUL, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE VALUABLE, YOU ARE WORTH IT, YOU ARE MEANT TO BE GREAT, YOU ARE SMART, YOU ARE STRONG, YOU ARE USEFUL, YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER, YOU ARE NOT A QUITTER, YOU ARE MEANT FOR THIS!!”
