Shelli-Johnson-Before-After-About

Hi, I'm Shelli.

For decades, I was a yo-yo dieter with an eating disorder — weighing over 300 pounds at my heaviest. Then about ten years ago I'd had enough.

Enough with diets and food rules that were making me feel crazed. Enough of losing weight only to gain it back. And enough of the shame that came along with what I perceived as a personal failure to keep the weight off.

Since then, I have shed over 160 pounds and maintained that weight loss for more than eight years. I no longer have a fear of food, gaining the weight back, or being seen.

I help women who struggle with food, body image, and/or weight issues.

You will make peace both with food and with yourself so you can become the person you envision yourself to be.

You will be empowered to change your mindset so you can create a life that you love and a body that feels like home to you.

You will learn how to eat what you want, lose weight, and keep it off.

You will master weight loss through weekly video/phone calls, motivational emails/texts, empowering activities, and other educational resources over 12 weeks.

I believe:

  • you are the expert of you.
  • your body is full of wisdom and it knows best how to heal itself.
  • you have all the answers inside yourself to save your own life.
  • you are powerful, strong, tenacious, intelligent, and fully capable of creating what you most want.

I will teach you to:

 

  • trust yourself and listen to your own intuition. 
  • trust your body and listen to its wisdom.
  • let go of those people, places, and things that no longer serve you.
  • break cycles that you may be trapped in.
  • make the choices you need to make so you can live a life aligned with your highest values.
  • discover your gifts, talents, and passions so you can pursue them.
  • overcome fears that may be holding you back.
  • empower yourself to become the hero of your own story.
  • transform your life into what you want it to be.

What Clients Are Saying

Shelli was very effective as a coach and a total inspiration. She gave me hope that I can completely transform my body.

Shelli helped me dig beneath the surface and not just talk about food and what I was eating, which was incredibly helpful toward reaching my weight goals.

She coached me during the on-set of the COVID-19 crisis with all the stress and insecurity associated with that time period. Shelli was great at helping me to identify stress triggers and helping me strategize non-food rewards to get me through some very tough uncertain days.

She helped me identify outside influences like a toxic relationship, which was driving me to not only under-value myself but also stress eat as a coping mechanism.

TRAINING & EXPERTISE

The particular expertise and training I have came from living and experiencing morbid obesity and freedom from it firsthand.

At my largest, I weighed 304 pounds and wore a size 26. As of this writing, I weigh 130 pounds and wear a size 2. I’ve been within twenty pounds (because I fluctuate and that’s okay) of that weight for more than eight years now.

I lost the weight naturally. I’ve had no bariatric surgery. I didn’t starve to get there. I don’t take diet pills or diet supplements other than a few vitamins. I do exercise but not like a maniac. I eat whatever I want as long as I’m not allergic to it. I no longer have a raging eating disorder. I am no longer afraid of food.

I no longer live trapped in a body that doesn’t feel like me. I am finally (finally!) comfortable in my own skin. I don’t live in fear that the weight is going to come back and I won’t know what to do about it. I don’t live in confusion and desperation and frustration and panic and humiliation and shame.

Food is no longer the focus of my life. I got free.

Your life can be that way too.
