Welcome to Body Love Now!
Here you will learn how I, Certified Eating Psychology Coach, Melissa Story, can help lead you to a more liberated YOU. Have you struggled to love your body? Do you see food and appetite as the enemy? Do you try to use willpower to control your appetite? Have you dieted on and off for years, and always end up back where you started? Do you try to have the perfect diet? Do you exercise like crazy and not see the scale budge? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then you are in the right place.
I am dedicated to helping you make peace with your body and your personal struggle around eating. Different areas I work with clients are: chronic dieting, binge eating, over eating, body image, poor digestion, mood issues, and more.
We will explore and apply Mind Body Nutrition together with Dynamic Eating Psychology as a way to deepen our understanding of possible underlying causes of your issue. Don’t you think it’s time to stop hating yourself into the body you want? My approach is different, cutting-edge, and has been highly successful for many. It’s time to nourish yourself and find freedom!
Body Love Now’s 5 Ultimate Beliefs
1. Celebrate your uniqueness!
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
— Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!
There is no one-size-fits-all diet or way of eating. Together we will discover a way of eating and lifestyle that will work for you.
2. You don’t need to be fixed!
Though you may feel broken and used by the confusion driven upon us by the weight loss and health industries, there is nothing innately wrong with who you are. You are much more than just your body.
When you can let go of the negative belief that you are somehow flawed because of how you look or how you eat, you make space for real nourishment and a more efficient metabolism.
3. Pleasure is a must!
It is time to stop seeing food as the enemy and something to be in fear of. Does seeing a cookie start a war in your mind? It is time to stop the nonsense!
I will help teach you how to relax around food, and to start incorporating Vitamin P–pleasure!! Pleasure is something our bodies are wired for, and not to be limited to for a special occasion, but to be built into our daily lives. Pleasure can help us
to shift our old patterns of anxiety around food into new patterns of healing.
4. Listen to your body wisdom!
Our bodies house everything we need to be our highest selves.
We have become so accustomed to listening to others beliefs about what is good for our bodies, that we have stopped listening to our truest guide for what is good for us–our body wisdom.
Trusting our body wisdom is essential for real nourishment and transformation around food and weight.
5. Spread the Love!
When we show others that we care for and love our bodies, we will help inspire others to do the same.
Body Image is a collective issue, and Body Love Now is committed to helping change the consciousness of Body Image to a positive one.
We have spent far too long living in fear of food, and thinking that we can hate our bodies into lasting change.
