My self-love, confidence & BODY FREEDOM wasn’t always like this…..in all honesty, it was on the far opposite side of the spectrum that continued for more than 2 decades!!!

MY STORY TO SELF LOVE & BODY FREEDOM

Jody Calitz, Womens weight loss Coach, body freedom coach, confidence expert

Since a young age I have fought with my body, never feeling good enough or pretty enough for society’s standards.

At school, I was not that “hot chick” with straight hair, smooth skin & skinny legs.

I was pretty much the opposite of my schools “it” crowd.  I had curly hair, freckles, a fuller body &_pimply skin. Because of this, I got bullied on a regular base & often was excluded & isolated from social circles.

There was this constant pressure of needing to look a certain way in order to be liked & maybe loved. Little did I know it was not others I needed love from but myself.

I didn’t fit in to society’s model of “ideal” or beautiful. I constantly felt odd, unattractive & just plain ugly.

Jody Calitz, Womens weight loss Coach, body freedom coach, confidence expert

It took me years to work through this internal battle. I believe this was the universes way of showing me my gifts & teaching me the lessons I needed to learn to be able to pass them on to other women, like yourself.

This was the first part of my journey towards BODY FREEDOM.

I am not going to lie, the journey has been long & rough & I went through some dark times.

I have lived through, learned & survived 3 eating disorders (anorexia, orthorexia & compulsive eating disorder).

I have ballooned my way up to 75kg (which is too much for my frame) and I have starved myself down to 45kg (…..scares me at the thought of how close my body was to giving up on me).

THERE IS NO ONE LIKE YOU…. AND THAT IS YOUR POWER!

I struggled with severe depression & debilitating anxiety ….& in all honesty I still have bad days, but I now have the tools & skills to get through those moments & not let them define me anymore.

I have physically & verbally bullied and abused my body in the hopes I could turn it into something (someone) else. There have been some of the darkest times of my life. It is such a scary & hopeless place to be in….feeling trapped & detached from ones own body. I can remember many nights crying over something so beautiful (my body) that I just could not see.

I am not sharing this for sympathy or “woe is me”….NO! I am sharing this to help you understand and trust me when I say….I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE FEELING….I HAVE BEEN THERE TOO!

 

* * * * * * * * * * * *

 

My life has been a colourful mix of self-discovery….from a shy, red-headed little girl in a small town in South Africa, to an international Pro Bikini Athlete competing at the World event in Las Vegas… to being a woman so overcome by chronic anxiety & fatigue that I couldn’t leave my house…….

 

I have defeated social stigmas (especially in the fitness industry), battled huge personal obstacles & learned how to love myself completely, flaws & all.

This is when I discovered what it truly means to be FREE in my body. This is how I discovered BODY FREEDOM!

So how did things change from “I don’t love or want my body”  …..to……

I don’t want to be anyone else but ME! i love being me!

 

I invested in ME! I did the coaching & therapy I needed to, to become the woman I wanted to be.

 * * * * * 

I saw my health & body as the most valuable asset I would ever own and I promised myself to invest in it every day….from the food I ate to the sleep I got to the conversations I had with myself.

* * * * *

I changed my mindset (HUGE….it was the biggest shift of all). I started practicing & applying the techniques & tools I learnt over the years with intention.

 * * * * * 

I BELIEVED in myself & I BELIEVED I could manifest the body of my dreams.

 * * * * *

I surrounded myself with people who loved & supported me.

 * * * * *

I took small strategic actions steps EVERY DAY with intention & unwavering faith.

LOVE YOURSELF LIKE YOU ONLY HAVE 1 MORE DAY LEFT TO LIVE!

We live in a world where the pressure of social media to achieve physical perfection is at its highest. We are constantly being bullied for how we look & bombarded with images of what we should look like. There is always that next best thing which is just out of our reach and as a consequence, we live in the hopeful future instead of embracing everything we are now in this present moment.

 

It became clear to me that I needed to help women to start seeing themselves for who they truly are in this moment……beautiful, complete and imperfectly perfect as they are.

 

I combine all my skills, knowledge & years of experience to help women achieve true body freedom.

This is achieved through the delicate and intimate relationship with the body, mind (head) and soul (heart). All 3 elements are so closely connected that it becomes vital to work with them as a whole in order to achieve complete Body Freedom.

 

My mission is to empower you to create the body, health & self love of you dream of.

BODY FREEDOM is the beautiful balance of:

…  staying grounded & letting go.

placing your health & happiness first, above any superficial gain.

having the confidence & courage to be your authentic, beautiful self yet staying humble & grateful for all that you are blessed with

knowing who you are yet being willing to LEARN more

embracing your body for all that it is, but still wanting to reach it’s full potential

nurturing & nourishing your body yet still being able to let go and enjoy life

challenge your body to be it’s best but without punishing or breaking its spirit

achieving your DREAM BODY without having to manipulate or conform to societies definition of what it should be

loving yourself unconditionally no matter the stage of the journey

KNOWING that self love starts WITHIN the body at the souls centre, not without

 … owning your brave, bold & beautiful body & living your life to the fullest.

🌟Sunday SELF talk....I speak of this all the time because it's a REAL struggle for many women today & There's a young generation of girls growing up who are punishing their bodies & doing plastic surgery before 16 in the hopes to love & be loved... I want them to know it doesn't have to be that way....you don't have to do that to be accepted & loved .
.
.
.
Women struggle with accepting who they are in the modern world. We are constantly been told & shown & convinced that who we are is not good enough, beautiful enough or worthy enough....as we are, naturally.
.
.

I use to believe I had to be a slim 5ft11 with blond hair, olive skin and blue eyes to be beautiful or liked or attractive to the opposite sex.... but the reality is I am not.
.
. 🤓I am a fiery red head with freckles, hazel eyes and shapely body that stops at 5ft7 .... I battled with this for many years, trying to bully myself to become something I am not.....to become something I can't. .
.
.

It was only in The moment I accepted and embraced who I was as the woman, in the present moment, was I able to set my body (and mind) free.
.
.
. 😚I fell in love with me and every inch of my body that made me who I am ....exquisitely beautiful & worthy! .
.
. 🌍The journey to where I am today has been one that only very few travel....because it's rough, it's hard & it's steep....it will challenge your courage, strength & bravery to step out into the world as YOU, WITH NO MASK.
🏔It will test your endurance & stamina on a mental physical & spiritual level...BUT when you finally reach the top and look out onto the world....there is a feeling that comes over you like no other, a confidence that will crush any though or word spoken against who you are & there is a deep love so beautiful that you will want to radiate it out into the world unapologetically. .
.
. ⚠️You are not broken or ugly or a misfit....you are fucking beautiful & its time you and the world saw it & celebrated it!!! .
. 🤗If you are wanting experience this for yourself (& prepared to take the scenic off road 😉) join me on my website 30 DAY SELF LOVE & BODY FREEDOM JOURNEY that starts 18th April. Send me a DM if you would like to know more 🤗🤗

Some WORDS OF WISDOM for a Friday ⚠️It's easy to love ourselves when our bodies are moving in the direction of what society deems as
Some WORDS OF WISDOM for a Friday ⚠️It's easy to love ourselves when our bodies are moving in the direction of what society deems as "ideal"⚠️ So what happens when the chizzled "lines" start to fade away and a fold or 2 start to appear where once there were none? 🌦What happens when you stop enjoying your workouts? When the motivation to eat another boiled chicken breast disappears and the intense desire to "kill" your workout feels like it is more likely going to kill you? * * 🌩We have all been there. That crazy drive and motivation that would stop at nothing. It's good be there, to go through that intensity...to test your own limits and discover your own strengths. It's what has made me who I am today. * * ⛈But what happens when that all disappears? I found myself clinging onto a version of who I was, afraid that if I let go i would lose my identity. I would lose my worth and all that I worked so hard for would vanish. * * 🌩I pushed so hard to keep up with a certain "look" and image I thought I needed to be that I forgot the person who I was meant to be.... I was following the crowd blindly, lost in societies expectations. * * ⛅And then slowly but surely I let it go of that perception of "ideal" ....with grace I let it go. Grateful for all the amazing things it had brought and taught me through the years but confident that it was not who I was anymore. * * * 🌞Don't be afraid to transform. Don't be afraid to move in the opposite direction of the crowd. It can be scary and overwhelming and at many points utterly terrifying....but that little person you are meant to be deep inside will slowly float to the surface and very soon you won't even be able to image been anyone else but this incredible unique individual in this beautiful world. * * 🌟I became my own version of "ideal"...healthy strong & fiercely passionate about what i stand for. 🌟Don't be afraid to become the person you were born to be....the better version of who you are now! . . . . . .
⚠️I HAVE A MESSAGE FOR YOU, YES YOU READING THIS NOW...... I don't want to wait until I am 63 to LOVE my body.

I don't want to look back and wish I had appreciated my body more, took better care of her and told myself
⚠️I HAVE A MESSAGE FOR YOU, YES YOU READING THIS NOW...... I don't want to wait until I am 63 to LOVE my body. I don't want to look back and wish I had appreciated my body more, took better care of her and told myself "I love you" every day. That is why I am choosing to do so NOW BECAUSE I don't want to live with the regret of losing the one thing I value most in this world! . . . My health is more valuable than any short term pleasure, cheap food and irresponsible choice. . . . My body is worthy of the deepest love & unconditional care I can give it every day. ⭐I have come to know for certain that all answers to incredible health lies within and starts within. ⭐You can't create something beautiful if you are constantly breaking it down. ⭐You can't nurture something precious if you are constantly harming it with poison. ⭐You can't love your body unconditionally if you are constantly hurting it's soul. 🌍After years of searching, learning and growing, I now know for certain that there is no handbook or manual to understanding the bodies power & energy.....its a journey that must be taken. 🌍It can be a challenging journey but I chose to take it many years ago so that I wouldn't have to look back on my life with regret. 🌍Life on this earth, in this body, is short....therefore choose to Love, appreciate and take care of your body the best you can....in this moment....NOW. It's never too late to start NOW 🌍☀️🌴 . . . . . . . . . #liveinthemoment #thepowerofnow #veganstrong #vegangirl #girlgetout #selflove #veganyogi #dancerspose #lovetheskinyouarein #healyourbody #loveyourbody #veganblogger #outdooryoga
⚠️Midweek Motivation: my question to you is....WHY ARE YOU WAITING ?
.
.

I have worked with hundreds of women & that has always been one of the biggest excuses .... I say excuse because it is!
.
.
. ⛔It's a delay tactic for putting something off that you KNOW you want for yourself  but what you will need to face or go through scares you too much so you delay.
.
.
. ⚠️When it comes to your body you must not delay!!! Every day that passes is a day older and I don't say that to make you depressed, I say that to wake you up!
.
.
. 💞It's the beauty of our body. It has the ability to change and transform and do incredible things but the beauty of its mortal fragility is just as powerful.
.
. 😕Why waste every prescious day you have in this body feeling insecure, uncomfortable, depressed, lonely, in pain (physically and mentally), weak, exhausted, unworthy?!?!?!?
.
.
. 😔Every day that passes is a day lost that you could FEEL loved, fulfilled, strong, emergized, confident, worthy, your best!!!
.
.
. 😔They say life is short, yet we postpone the things that really matter! 😔They say you only live once, yet we abuse & mistreat our bodies as if we could trade them in at a later date... .
.
. ⭐We wait for the right time, less stress, more security, better circumstances...but the truth Is, THIS MOMENT is the best time you'll ever have to take action & take that step towards what you want.
.
.
. ⭐I have regrets in my life, things I can't change...but I promised myself 4 years ago that I'll never waste one more day hating body. I promised myself I would love it, nurture it & celebrate it everyday unapologetically because when it comes to loving myself & loving my body....i don't want to have any regrets at the end...

⚠️Any & ALL Transformation starts within .... It's a huge revelation to be able to look at an image of yourself and actually love what you see. Not like, but actually love.....without judgement criticism or internal bullying...just to love the body and PERSON you see. .
. ⛔I not talking about the ego kind....we see it all the time. ⭐I am talking about true love, one that holds care, kindness and self respect. 🌟As a young red headed girl who once HATED the freckles on her skin, the colour of her hair & the shape & folds of her body to become a REAL woman who is proud of all that she physically is and what she stands for....was a HUGE milestone for me. .
.
.

To be able to love myself complete was when I set my body free 🌟I wish that for all women....that they may find the freedom and courage to LET GO of perfectionism, to let go of self doubt and embrace all that they are to become the best version of themselves that they can be!!! .
.
. 🌟Body Freedom is real & it is something that has a massive effect on all areas of your life....not just the relationship you have with your body. .
