Sara was born and raised in Bucks County, PA.  She has  dealt with being overweight since she was about 11 years old.  Her parents divorced that year and then inevitably puberty was beginning.  She gained weight and learned to use food for comfort.  She would eat for any reason.  If she was happy, if she was sad, if she was upset or even if there was something to celebrate, she always ended up at a restaurant.  
 
As Sara matured and grew into a woman, she always saw herself, in her mind, with an average body type.  She didn't think that she was that overweight.  She kept living her life in the usual way that she would have because of this denial. 
 
She was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes when she was 19 years old.  19 years old. 
 
It was only until late last year that Sara started becoming her weight.  She started to become depressed when her health issues progressed from not just diabetic, but to being uncomfortable when sitting on the floor or getting sick in the middle of the night while she was asleep. That's scary. 
 
She ended up in the hospital early 2015 with other weight associated health issues.  Sara decided enough was enough in April.  She started going to the gym, no matter how uncomfortable she was working out in front of others. 
 
She started dieting and eating what she thought was a correct diet.  In July Sara started the 21 day fix and drinking Shakeology while doing the home workouts.  This nutrition guide has aided her in losing 50 pounds and gaining a ton of confidence.
 
She  have also been taken completely off of my injectable insulin because of my weight loss.
 
She signed up as a coach in August because she had a LOT of people who were interested in knowing what was working for her so well, she now has her Facebook page, Sara Beisel- Not Your Average Fitness Coach, with lots of people who follow her and her journey.  Sara's page provides inspiration, motivation, recipes and the occasional workout video.
 
Another important factor in Sara's journey is her son.  He is the real reason she decided to get her act together when it came to her health.  She wanted to lead by example and she was being a hypocrite.  She exercises and workouts with her son.  They talk about healthy foods all the time and she tries to include him in everything she does along the way her journey because he is her biggest motivation.

Today we welcome back Laura Ghedina!

Laura works as a holistic health coach for “emotional detoxing”. She helps women to uncover the emotional burdens that they carry as excess weight, or in form of emotional eating habits, so that they transform and release weight and unhealthy habits for good.

In her work, she doesn’t look at conscious-behaviorial changes, but digs deeper into what the underlying cause is. With that she often find traumatic experiences in childhood, or patterns in the family system.

Links we spoke about-

This topic came so clear to me, I'm not sure why but I just had to cover it. I think it can help a lot of women out there who go through a rough time as I did a bunch of times, including 2 divorces...

  1. Make a list of activities YOU truley enjoy doing
  2. Make friend time again if you have gotten away from this
  3. Start a blog or a private journal @wordpress.com
  4. Join an online community for people going through what you are or find a meetup in your area
  5. Take up a new hobby
  6. Start a self-care practice- baths, walking, fitness classes etc.
  7. Simplify your belongings to what you ONLY need and want 
  8. Create new goals for your new life, but for a short time, maybe a month, to not get overwhelmed
  9. Start a detox
  10. Make a list of things  you LOVE about yourself
  11. Listen to episode #12 - How Divorce Drastically changed my life

Thanks for listening and BYE!
