Meet the "You're not enough" diet demon
This demon whispers "It's all so overwhelming and there's no way you're doing it right."
You understand the importance of eating whole foods and typically choose fruits and veggies - but when the kids are hungry, and you're exhausted, you have no problem throwing Mac and Cheese their way - as long as no one in your Crunchy-Mommy FB group finds out.
When did being healthy get so complicated? It never seems like you're doing enough to make meals for your family that are both good for you and a crowd favorite. You often wonder how you measure up to other moms out of fear that you're not enough.
There you go, allowing comparisonitis to set in. Before you know it, you'll be back at square one. You want so badly to figure it all out because your kids are watching… and of all the things they notice about you - you don't want them to see your lack of confidence that what you’re doing is ‘right’.
Maybe that's why you're exhausted. You're trying so hard, but never seeing the results. There are days you force yourself into acceptance: this is the body I was born with. Those Italian dinners aren't going anywhere and neither are the hips. And finally when you think you've grown to accept, you realize all you've done is come to hate those parts of yourself more.
You can have control with food when you want it but food has become a medicine for you. It might be all in your head, but you swear that those peanut M & Ms make you feel better while you're downing them. After? Let's not talk about after...
Lately, motherhood has felt like a competition. Being a woman is hard enough: you've embraced the idea of perfectionism but can't seem to obtain it. You want the best for the kids. The absolute best. But you never feel like enough. So, you feel like you have to change your ways so they have every opportunity to succeed.
You need a simple plan for a doable lifestyle and a circle of supportive women just like you to cheer you on. There's an email headed your way with everything you need to make that happen!
You can start NOW.
Your self sabotage comes from feeling like you can't ever make the "right" decision -- but you're a smart mama and you know that drinking water is a good choice, right?!
So let's start there!
I know it seems simple but easy is doable long term.. and sustainability with new habits is how you will feel successful.

Find your tribe
The internet is a pretty cool place these days bursting at the seams with resources, programs and communities of women. This is good news for you but I encourage you to look for a group that shares the same goals and focus as you. Your decision to quit dieting and create long lasting lifestyle changes is a BIG deal and you're going to want a group that can give you the tools, accountability and support along the way so that the shifts you make truly come from you and what you need most.
We can help you with that.
Before we go any further, let me introduce myself!
Hey, I'm Melanie!
I help busy mamas - just like you! - who’ve “tried it all” finally become healthy, strong, and confident in their bodies once and for all. When I started out I was frustrated... the thought of starting another program and failing AGAIN was unbearable.
I started using dumbbells & spending less time in my workouts and I was actually seeing change in the way I looked and felt.
I stopped dieting, learned a few basic things about nutrition and started eating more of the foods I loved everyday.
Now I am seeing my body change like never before, I am losing weight and keeping it off seems simple and doable long term. I can't wait for you to see the exact same results in your body and in your life.
