A Love Letter to Leila

Project: C.H.E.K Your Health

Dearest Leila,

Thankyou for a beautiful meal last night. The spiced orange duck with shitaki mushrooms and brocollini was divine; as was that extraordinary Valentine drop of 2009 Californian Pinot noir. Mm-mmm. The conversation? Always the best.

But… what I really want to say is thank you for so much more than duck-convo. Thank you for making me feel so magical. I have never liked my body, nor myself in photographs… but you, for some reason, are able to both cultivate and capture a different side of me in training, in friendship and in images!  

Perhaps it is because you make me feel so comfortable in myself. I have an inkling, however, it has a lot to do with your years of experience as a C.H.E.K coach and health mentor. Your holistic approach and understanding of how we work as whole human beings – spiritual, emotional, physical, mental – is invaluable, appreciated and always noticed.

Re Project: C.H.E.K Your Health, I have experienced more change in the past three months than I have in the past three years – quitting my newspaper day job in journalism to take on Soul Sessions full time, significant relationship shifts and health changes. 

Another person may have lost weight faster, or done things differently, but I want you to know that for me, in my world, to have lost four kilos at this point feels like an amazing achievement.

Why? Because, for a while there, I truly did not believe that ANY weight-loss was possible. And the game ain’t over yet.  

I am very proud of, and so grateful for, my four kilo weight-loss to date, but that number is only one small part of the over all health improvements I have experienced. What I am prouder and even more grateful for are the changes I have made to my diet and drinking habits, the improvements I can feel in my health and body at large (or small).

Please know that all of this has been inspired by you and your Momentum for Life team Ms Lutz. Thankyou. Thankyou. Thankyou.

I love you. I salute you. I will see you at training tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn. To be continued… 

Love Elo xx
