Be The Best Version of You

You cannot change the circumstances in your life.  You can only change the way you react to them.

You’ve been through some sort of emotional trauma in your Life.  But you’ve never been a victim to what has happened to you; you’re smarter than that — but some days you feel stuck in your life and hide with the shame, guilt and pain you’ve been carrying around at the fear that someone will find out.  Worst part is you’ve been using many outside buffers to find peace, happiness and comfort and it’s just not working.  But today, you’re finally ready to do the work and let go of your past, release the weight… and live your Best Life!

How do I know so much about you?

Because I use to be just like YOU!

I have been made complete in Christ!

– Colossians 3:10

Hi, I’m Myra G. Gonzalez Your Life & Weight Coach & This is My Story!

Throughout my life I’ve accomplished almost everything I set my mind to do.  You could say I’m a natural problem solver (just like you)!  However, through it all I also experienced many struggles that caused a lot of emotional trauma.  It was something that I was never fully aware of though.  I just reacted to my adversity, as I imagined a strong willed woman like me (and YOU) would.  Never thinking that I was a victim to my circumstances, but rather that I proved once again my resilience and perseverance when shit got hard.

My Struggles Don’t Define Me

However, after carrying around so much shame, guilt, grief and pain from being sexually abused as a child, failed relationships, losing many loved ones, it became too much to handle.  I hid inside my mind, with so many negative thoughts and emotions and began a long list of protective mechanisms to help me numb like: Food, TV, unhealthy relationships, social media, alcohol and people pleasing… to name a few!

Which led me to gain so much weight and feeling like I was losing myself completely.  It was then that I decided something needed to change!! I was Ready to take back the control and began my Life Transformation!

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for Good and not for disaster, to Give you a Future and a Hope… when you pray, I will Listen. If you Look for me in earnest, you will Find me when you Seek me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will Guide you along the Best Pathway for your life. I will Advise you and watch over you.”

– Jeremiah 29:11-13 & Psalm 32:8

How I Designed the New Me….

First, I began to grow my spiritual life by surrendering myself to
God and connecting with my trinity.
Mind – Body – Spirit

I admitted I needed help and God gave me the strength to take back the control of my mind, my body and my Spirit! It was then that I began coaching myself by changing my beliefs about my past. This lead me to lose 90lbs, plus release the protective fat I had been using to numb for comfort.

Life Experience is often our Greatest Teacher

Second, I began by really paying attention to my story, all my negative thoughts, limiting beliefs and what they had already caused in my life… AND Worked hard to CHANGE THEM! During this time, I began to exercise and learn how to eat to fuel my body. I became a student again by researching ways to help myself. I listened to podcast, read personal development books and followed my mentor at theThe Life Coach School to learn how to Self-Coach, with the exact amazing tools I teach my clients today!!! —–

Today, I have lost a total of 90 lbs, have a better relationship with God, myself and others and have gained so much more!!  Because what I’ve learned is that when you #loveyourselfstrong, you truly love yourself.  When you let go of the effects of your emotional trauma you gain self awareness, achieve clarity about your desires and learn how to get them. You finally take back the control of your life by getting back your power and feel empowered to confront your limiting beliefs head on! You’re able to feel all your emotions by not hiding from them or numbing them and are able to take massive action to achieve your goals and

Design the New YOU!

These steps literally culminate in a whole redesigning of you: Mind, Body, Spirit and when you reach this you will lose weight. Because you will no longer need the protective fat you’ve been using to hide & numb.

I am God’s workmanship

– Ephesians 2:10

And if you’re anything like me…

Your thoughts about your past have already caused you a lot of pain, plus weight gain and cost you a lot of time.  Your mind wants you to believe that the key to your happiness is waiting on the other side of being skinny. It wants you to believe that your circumstances need to change in order for you to feel happy like: Earning more money, gettin a bigger house, finding the ‘perfect’ partner. Or that you need to lose weight to feel more confident in pictures (and not have to find the best out of 20 pictures to post on Facebook).  Or worst, your life needs to look more like your friends on FB….You know your skinny friends who look like they have it ALL!

Well YOU don’t! 

Because THEY don’t (people fat or skinny don’t post their Real Lives on FB, just saying)

I am a Temple in which God dwells.

– I Corinthians 3:16

Testimonials

  • "Pre-coaching I was on auto pilot in my life. I felt like I was in survival mode. I was often angry, unhappy, and fed up. I was stuck in old patterns. The feelings had about myself kept me from moving forward towards what I desired most in my life. All of this was exhausting and not at all what I wanted for me. I felt I had lost myself.  After my life coaching experience with Myra, I am able to bring awareness to all parts of my life and this has empowered me to take the wheel again. I am on my way to achieving my desired results. I don’t feel stuck anymore. I feel capable and that has brought new found energy in my life. I am forever grateful for the support and guidance Myra has provided me on my journey."

    Trish J.
  • “Myra has helped me to get clear on what direction I wanted to move forward in for my life. She is a great listener and mirror for personal growth. She's very pleasant and supportive to work with. I respect her professionalism and openness as well as friendliness and honesty. I recommend and trust her to help others on their life journey. I'm honored and grateful to have had her at my side as I transition into the next phase for my life.”

    Kim G.
  • “Working with Myra allowed me to feel at ease with not only my goals but also with the thought patterns that were creating resistance in my life. She is exactly what a life coach should be: patient, thought-provoking and fun. We laughed together, shared our stories and looked for ways to be open to possibility. Myra created and held the space for me to feel safe and free to express myself while holding me accountable.”

    Dawn E.
  • "It was a privilege to experience coaching with Myra. I was given loving quality attention and direction. Myra was a careful attentive listener and would highlight what I needed to hear from myself in order to gain motivation, clarity, resolution or deeper understanding of my "stuck" places. If Myra gives you suggestions to implement or exercises... do them. The results will be rich! Thank you Myra, I'm forever grateful."

    Rebecca H.
  • "Myra, I wanted to take this time to write to you all the ways you've helped me. First, I believe in myself again. I have seen that this life is too short to give it away to the wrong people and not to make something great of myself. I've learned that I'm truly stronger then I know myself to be. Both physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I'm in debited to your gracious generosity. A gift that I will try my best to pay forward. I will try to show people that if I can do this so can they. Because I'm getting to a happy place. Not because of the weight loss, but also because of the baggage that is coming off with it. So much was held in my layers of "comfort" and I didn't know how to escape. Thank you for opening my doors to a brighter future." Forever grateful, Jess

  • "I'll admit, I was skeptical about working with a coach. I wasn't sure how a stranger that I will never meet in person could help me through the depts of my trauma and the inner working of my mind. Coaching with Myra changed my life. I became light hearted and filled with optimism as I worked through the thoughts that had me filled with anxiety, anger, and self doubt. I looked forward to our time to talk each week knowing that I would shed more of my past to become a better version of myself. Myra become much more than a coach, she became a trusted friend that I could bare my soul to and knew that I would be enlightened by it. After living 6 months without coaching I have found myself falling into some of my same negitive thought patterns. I now know that coaching isn't a one time fix, but on going maintenance on my mind. I look forward to consistently working with Myra again."
