My name is Amy English. I am a trained life coach, certified BARE coach, and certified Reiki practitioner. I figured out how to stop fighting with food. I learned how to stop struggling with my weight and stop sabotaging my success. I found that it's a lot easier to work with my body as a friend. I discovered peace when I ditched diet drama, and it is my mission to help other women do the same.
I started dieting at a very early age. I remember the first time I went to a local weight loss clinic as an early teen. I remember sitting in a room full of adult women who were waiting to hop on the scale, desperate for a loss to report that week. I wondered why I was there. I didn't want to be there. I remember thinking that something must be wrong with me.
The cycle continued for decades. I've done all the programs, and spent a ton of money along the way. I was always trying to lose weight. I hid my body by swimming in baggy clothes. I constantly compared my body to others. It wouldn't surprise me if that's how some folks remember me, as the girl who was always on a diet.
I lost count of how many times I dropped a bunch of weight only to gain it all back. I ate my feelings for a really long time. Food was my best friend and my worst enemy. I used food to cope, calm, and comfort. I lived with cravings I couldn't control. I punished myself with harsh restrictions. I forced myself to follow meal plans that didn't agree with my body only to undo everything on a stressful day.
I suffered in this loop for a long time. I didn't think there was a way to stop. Then I discovered life coaching and found a way to end my pattern. Who knew the way to change this was to start working from the inside out? That's the secret traditional weight loss doesn't share.
It hit me one day that I wasn't struggling anymore. I don't fight with food, because the relationship has changed. Food is fuel. I eat when I'm hungry. Period. It's become that simple. I trust my body. I appreciate my body. I love my body. There's no drama getting dressed or looking at my reflection in the mirror. I'm willing to feel all my emotions, so I no longer distract from them with food. I'm not hiding anymore. I'm becoming a woman who is no longer obsessed with her weight. Instead, I am taking exceptional care of my body as I continue the journey towards my natural weight.
I found freedom. I discovered that you can want to remove extra weight and love your body at the same time. It's possible. I'm doing it. A dear friend once told me that this is my super power; I help other women end their suffering. I am using my personal story to help women end emotional eating, stop self-sabotage, and ditch diet drama.
How Can I Help?
As a recovering stress eater, and lifelong dieter, I know the struggle of being consumed with weight loss. I also know the pain of hiding behind my weight, and feeling completely out of control with food. I have been able to end my 30+ year pattern of emotional eating, including binge eating & overeating. I no longer turn to food when life happens. I'm continuing the journey towards my natural weight from a place of peace. I have discovered love, and acceptance for my whole self. I want to help you experience the same.
There’s a piece missing with most traditional weight loss methods. We are told what to eat, and how to exercise, but nothing helps us address our thought patterns around food, weight, and body image. There is little offered to help explore why we turn to food, and why we continuously sabotage our success. That's where I come in.
I will help you explore your relationship with food, the role it serves, and why you eat when you’re not hungry. I will guide you as you learn to accept and appreciate the skin you’re in. All of this is key to lasting change. If you want weight loss to be permanent you have to start inside. I will guide you as we peel back the layers to determine what is holding you back from experiencing the body and life you deserve. Together we will work towards ending the diet drama once and for all. I will share the same process and tools that helped me break free, and completely transform my relationship with food, my body, and myself. It's called Fat2Fierce®.
I get it. You’ve tried everything, so what can possibly make this different?
All of the past attempts assumed that someone or something outside of you had the answers. You were told what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, and how much to burn. You were not in control.
Fat2Fierce® puts you in the driver’s seat. You have the power within. You have all the answers, and working with a life coach (like me) can help you access them. Coaching offers a safe, and confidential space to explore the thoughts and beliefs that keep you stuck in patterns that prevent you from achieving your goals.
Imagine being able to allow cravings without giving in, and watching them fade away. When there is no restriction, there is no deprivation. That's where the magic happens. Picture yourself believing that you can go to any social function and not undo your day, and not feel like you're missing out. Imagine no more guilt when it comes to food! I'll help you see that you can feel every emotion, even the bad ones, without the need to distract or stuff it. With all of this comes the very clear understanding that food no longer has power, and that you are in control. Imagine not struggling to find something to wear, with no more tears in the closet. What would it feel like to look in the mirror and like the reflection you see? When you're no longer consumed with the thought that you must lose weight to be happy and healthy, you create space for yourself. That space is where the suffering stops. That's when freedom comes. That's how everything changes.
I’ve experienced the magic of life coaching through my own personal journey, so I know firsthand how powerful it can be. That’s why I decided to become a life coach. I want to help you the way that it continues to help me.
