Me, an overweight person.

Possibly the single most common question prospective clients ask me is whether I will be able to work with them at their current weight or if they should hold off until they lose weight. Here's the thing - assuming the most optimistic outlook that you are definitely going to lose weight and soon, you will probably change shape a lot less than you imagine. There are exceptions, like weight loss over 100 pounds or extreme body building efforts, but for the most part, it's your SIZE that changes, not your SHAPE. Women of one size range are as variable in shape as any other.

Here's why the belief that you will diet your way into a new body type is so toxic: it gives you the impression that the day will come when you wake up and hit that magic number on the scale that allows you to look like anything you want. So you wait. And meanwhile, days and weeks and years of your life are passing you by.

Don't wait. There isn't a pot of gold at the end of the weight loss rainbow. You aren't secretly not you under the weight. You're that same height, with the hips that are always wider than your bust and that same funny tilt to your smile. You're ready to create the style of your dreams, or anything else you want in life. And today is a perfect day to start. ✨
