Hi, I’m Amy!
I am a wife and Mom of 3 on a mission to help women heal their relationships with their body.
In 2015 I started sharing my wellness journey on Instagram with zero intention of starting a blog. I quickly realized there were so many women who felt the same way about their bodies that I felt about mine (shame, frustration & guilt), and I knew that there needed to be a mental shift. I needed to heal myself and then show others how to do it, too.
I’d spent decades (I started my first diet in 4th grade) hating my body and trying to change it. Finally, in 2018 it became clear that dieting was not helping me find peace with my body, it was encouraging my constant disapproval of it.
So, I left diet culture behind and began a beautifully broken journey of loving my RIGHT NOW body, no matter what season I’m in.
This shift from hating your body to learning to love it and care for it is something I want to help other women learn to do. Shifting my mindset helped me honor and be gentle with my body through my last pregnancy and a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s. I choose to care for my body because of all it’s given me, not because it looks a certain way.
What does it mean to Love Your Body Well?
When this name came to me it came to serve two purposes.
- Create positive body image by healing your mindset and supporting your RIGHT NOW body. Even if it looks different than it used to, or different than you think it should.
- I want to offer solutions for you to heal your body from the inside out, so you can be well. I am a firm believer that there is a root cause to our symptoms and instead of masking what our body is telling us, we need to partner with it to figure out what it’s trying to say.
Wellness is about so much more than how much we weigh! It’s about our habits, our environment, our relationships, our stress level, our activity and our diet!
Learning to Love Your Body Well is about supporting, loving and honoring your body today and everyday, while also focusing on living a healthy lifestyle without guilt or shame.
My family is my biggest why. I never want my children to feel the way about their bodies that I have felt about mine. I am committed to stopping the cycle of guilt and shame and teaching my children how to love and care for their bodies. My hope is that I can help you do the same.
It’s never too late to heal yourself. It’s never too late to make peace with your past and decide that your future will look different.
My hope is that you know that healing is possible and you are worthy of love.
