Ask Me Anything about Weight Loss, Diets, Keto, Intermittent Fasting or Exercise.
Hi, I am Erin Wathen, Life and Wellness Coach, Food Addiction Counselor and author of “Why Can’t I Stick To My Diet?” to be in bookstores this fall.
I was never “fat” by most people’s standards but I had three different sizes of clothes in my closet as my weight was constantly fluctuating. I was either on a diet, coming off a diet, needing to go on a diet or having the Last Supper before the diet. I wasn’t ever LIVING. I had a constant stream of obsessive thoughts about my diet, my body, and my weight, I couldn’t turn it off.
For over 10 years, I was teaching Spin, Pilates, and Yoga and working out on my own and yet I still wasn’t looking like I wanted. I grew up in the 1990s where the terms “diet and exercise” had equal importance, it wasn’t until I realized that what we consume contributes to 75% of how we currently look and exercise only counts for around 25% of our present body. In short, we can not outrun the fork. I tried and tried, it never worked- the fork always won. I would find my mind wandering over to thinking of how many indulgences “I deserved” after a double spin class instead of fueling my body to perform at its highest level.
I took my lifetime of failed diets, obsession with food and sugar addiction and fixed it for once and for all. Then I doubled down turning my technique which has been called “the winning combination of 12 step knowledge, a lot of Science and Life Coaching” into a calling, I am able to help my clients end their own food obsession and get on with their freakin life- which is all I wanted to do for decades. My clients have seen amazing results, some are thinner than they were in High School and use my methods every day to keep their minds and their bodies in check.
I am now considered an Emotional Eating Expert, I have been on numerous podcasts, been featured as a Wellness Expert in publications such as Health Bloggers Community, Readers Digest, The Huffington Post, US News and World Reports and The Mighty. I write a daily blog and make a daily VLOG with a pop culture song of the day, you can’t take the Spin teacher out of me even when I am not in the studio.
