Who Am I?
Hi I’m Shari! I‘m a mom, yogi, pilate’s enthusiast, nutritionist, foodie and an ice cream lover.
Years ago I used to bake and decorate cakes as a business and loved sampling my butter icing on leftover cake. My kids have fond memories of us eating my homemade absolutely delicious butter icing by the spoonful accompanied with a glass of cold milk. I have my own special memories of me and my father eating cake & fudge at midnight. That must be where my sweet tooth stems from!!
Where I’m Coming From
I’ve struggled with my weight for most of my life. I’ve tried a zillion different diets and although I always lost weight, it would always find me again, and then some.
Do you have any foods that you have a hard time staying in control of? Sweets are my weakness and whenever I indulged, I just couldn’t stop. You would think that I would know better because this happened every single time, on every diet I was on. As soon as I would eat ‘something yummy’, the guilt would set in and I just ate more. I couldn’t seem to get back on track no matter what I did. I felt like a failure and was so disappointed and ashamed of myself so I just gave up and figured that this was my destiny.
My Aha Moment
Years ago (2005) I read this book about about clean eating and I connected with the woman who wrote it. Although I swore off dieting, her approach made sense to me and inspired me to use some of the principles. I started to eat better, plan ahead and included more whole foods in my meals. No more relying on buying store prepared foods or the diet foods that boasted no fat, no sugar or no calories (no taste either). If this was going to work, it couldn’t be about a diet. Instead, I focused my efforts on eating healthier, not beating myself up if I indulged in any treats, maintaining a positive attitude no matter what and I created strategies that fit with my lifestyle.
I lost 72 pounds and have kept it off since 2006. But this isn’t about me – it’s about YOU!
