IT'S NOT ABOUT THE FOOD
IT'S NOT ABOUT THE FOOD
A better life doesn't start when you get a better body. A better life starts now.

A BETTER LIFE Doesn't BEGIN AFTER YOU LOSE THE WEIGHT.

A BETTER LIFE BEGINS NOW.

You may know that Postpartum Depression is THE most common complication of motherhood, but you may not be aware of the fact that poor body image postpartum increases your risk for PPD ten fold.

I get it. New motherhood is tough. There is no guidebook. There are no rules to follow...and we often feel isolated and alone. There is one big community that is so alluring to all of us new moms, and that is the "get your body back" tribe.

I am here to tell you that there is another way and you don't have to diet your way to being a good mom.

the journey to peace with our bodies begins with a single choice.

 

 

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN WE DITCHED THE DIET.

For so long, we believed that joy was something hidden inside a number. A number on a scale…a number in our jeans…a number of calories we consume each day. Luckily, we know better now. When we know better, we do better and here we are, doing better. Here we are…living.

Connection, experience, community, relationship, faith…these are the cornerstones of a beautiful life. Who we are in our soul… How we love one another and how we love ourselves. Feeling the breath of air deep in our lungs each time we awaken each morning to a new day of opportunity. Beauty is in the details… a hot cup of coffee in the morning…the sound of a friends voice on the other side of the phone…the smell of fresh cut flowers…the taste of a delicious meal around a table of people we love. Real beauty…true joy… has nothing to with how we look and everything to do with how we feel.

THE WOMAN BEHIND THE MOVEMENT

Have you ever felt that nudge in your gut that's pushing you to show up in the world in a way that honors your health, mind, body AND soul? A calling to do more...be more than just “thin”? A calling to share parts of you that have been hiding inside of you for so long... I know that feeling. I also know what it feels like to have the mental stuff get in the way of putting yourself out there and living the life you know you were destined for even if that means having to forgo the ideal beauty standards and completely redefine what ACTUAL beauty, contentment, and peace look like.

Some of the biggest hurdles we face in this journey are the mental battles within our own selves. Doubt, fear, overwhelm, scarcity mentality, comparison....the list goes on and on. 

That's where I come in.

As a doctor and eating disorder specialist, I not only want to tell you what life is like without restriction, but I want to SHOW you. I want to let you in on the freedom that opens up once you take a sledge hammer to your scale and embrace the body God has given you to experience life here on this earth. I have been called to create a space where women can come and feel safe, celebrated, and encouraged to keep living life without the shackles of diet culture chained to their soul.

“Our bodies are a gift and life is too short to spend our time hiding from donuts. There is another way and I am living proof. I see you. I hear you. I know you, and together we will walk through life side by side embracing the joy that is life.” -Dr. Stefani Reinold
