Yay, you're here! I'm thrilled that you're interested in learning more. :-)
I'm Linda Tyllo, and I'm so excited to help you on your journey!
You've probably landed here due to concerns and frustrations around your eating, your body, or maybe frustrations around dieting. I get it, I truly do. My food and body story is like so many other women, even if the details vary a bit. Perceived issues around weight and body led to many years of on/off diet cycling. This was always accompanied by feeling high when I was at a lower weight and feeling personal failure and shame when my weight climbed back up again. All the while, of course, I blamed myself (where was my willpower?? Nevermind that I had plenty of willpower throughout my education, marriage, parenting, career!)
I finally learned that the myth of the thin ideal leading to one's perfect life is, at best, quite a trip down the proverbial rabbit hole! Far worse are the havocs wreaked upon us with the diet cycle: metabolic, emotional, mental, and social effects. If you're seeking a way out of the craziness, I can help. As your sister on the journey who understands, I want to help you listen to *your* inner wisdom, knowing like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, that it's been there all along. There really is a way to find peace and ease around food and your body. There is a way off the hamster wheel of diet->lose, eat->regain. There is a way to live a vibrant life and feel your absolute best. And in doing so, you reclaim your life's energy, directing it in areas that really matter to you. Your healing is about you, and it's also bigger than you. Your healing is linked to our planetary healing.
A word about Destina: your destina is not your fate. It is not a place or event. Your destina is your core essence, who you are inside that is unique to you, that you bring with you everywhere you go, and in everything you do. The capacity to heal is inherent in all of us, so healing is always a part of your destina. I want to help you connect with that so that you can unleash the destina that you've withheld, so that you can live your best life, and so that all of us can benefit from your gifts and talents. Our planet needs that.
