Lori Race is being interviewed on Loving Yourself Radio. During our faculty interview week we’ve tossed in a couple other juicy interviews about loving yourself. One of them is with Lori Race. Check out her bio. This girl rocks!
My name is Lori Race and I am the birth mother of heart your package dot com. My inspiration in creating this website and it’s programs was born from my 20 plus year struggle with the trifecta of emotional eating, compulsive exercise and body image issues.
I spent the better part of my late teens, twenties and early thirties in a knock down drag outwar with my body. I alternately starved and stuffed it, pushed it far beyond reasonable physical limits and bullied it, saying words to it that I would be loathe to whisper to my sworn enemies. It was not pretty.
Ever wonder how much pleasure there is in constantly obsessing about food, exercise and how your body looks? I am here to tell you there is none and I am guessing that if you are currently reading this, then you would likely agree.
My weight used to swing 25-30 lbs depending on whether I was dieting & overexercising or binge eating my pain away. Enter the world of life coaching and the introduction of self- exploration. The idea that your thoughts create your reality and the realization that I had A LOT of crappy thoughts blew my world wide open. As I slowly awakened to the fact that I was an amazing woman JUST AS I WAS, my life started to shift from one consisting of constant dieting, exercise obsession, people pleasing and unhappiness to one of true joy and, as cheesy as it sounds, authentic self love. My weight now swings a comfortable and healthy 5 or so lbs and I now wildly celebrate life rather than survive it. After many long and hard fought battles, my body and I are finally at peace.
