The hardest part was making the call and walking into the office, but after visiting with Karna for only a few minutes, I realized that this was going to be different. Good different.
In only a few meetings, Karna has helped me pinpoint obstacles and emotional roadblocks that I would have never realized were hurting my progress in becoming the person I want to be:
I always wished I could be eat like a “normal” person, but even when I dieted and exercised, I would lose weight and then gain it back. My entire life I’ve been this roller coaster of losing and gaining weight. Little did I know that it all began in my childhood when I was bullied. With Karna’s help I “remembered” how it started and then understood how to change the “story” of me as a little girl with low self-esteem. I know what to do now when I feel driven to fill up the empty place inside.
It’s work to change my habits of a lifetime but it’s worth it because I feel so much better about myself both emotionally and because I’m losing weight. This time I believe I can keep the weight off.
Individual sessions with Karna have been instrumental in getting the most out of LIATP. I have learned how behaviors that have been holding me back from achieving my fitness goals stemmed from beliefs that are no longer serving me and that they can be changed! She has provided techniques that have helped me access inner resources I didn't realize I had. With her help, I have started to transform beliefs that were limiting my growth into positive ones that are nurturing it. Rather than operating from a place of trying to change through negative self-talk, I am encouraging myself to make healthy choices and choose behaviors that support my goals. I feel that I am in a new place, one that is full of hope and possibility. Karna is professional, caring, and a joy to work with. She creates a safe space for transformation, and I only wish that I had found her sooner!
