Breaking Free from the Impact of Trauma on Weight Loss

Join Our Transformative Webinar for Christian Women

For many Christian women, the journey toward weight loss can be fraught with emotional and psychological challenges, particularly when trauma is part of the story. Trauma, whether from past experiences or ongoing stress, can significantly impact physical health, making weight loss seem like an insurmountable challenge. However, there is hope and healing available, and we invite you to join our upcoming webinar, “Breaking Free from the Impact of Trauma on Weight Loss,” on June 17, 2024, at 6:30 PM.

Understanding the Intersection of Trauma and Weight Loss

Trauma can deeply affect every aspect of our lives, including our physical health. It can:

  • disrupt our hormones
  • affect our eating habits
  • and lead to emotional eating as a coping mechanism.

For Christian women, these struggles can also intersect with spiritual challenges, such as:

  • feelings of guilt or shame
  • the pressure to live up to certain ideals within the faith community.

The Physical Impact of Trauma

When the body experiences trauma, it often responds by entering a state of chronic stress. This stress can lead to elevated levels of cortisol, a hormone that can cause weight gain, particularly around the abdomen. Trauma can lead to fatigue, making it difficult to find the energy for regular exercise, and can disrupt sleep, further complicating weight management. Check out my blog post

The Emotional and Psychological Impact

Emotionally, trauma can lead to low self-esteem and negative body image. These feelings can be compounded by the expectations and pressures faced within the church community. Emotional eating often becomes a way to cope with these feelings and is acceptable in the church, creating a cycle that is hard to break. Mental health issues like depression and anxiety, which are common among trauma survivors, can also impede efforts to lose weight. I recommend connecting with a Christian licensed therapist or psychologist to help find tools to deal with mental health issues and disorders. The Christian Counselor directory can help you locate services near you.

The Spiritual Dimension

For Christian women, the spiritual dimension adds another layer of complexity. Struggles with weight can be seen as a failure in self-discipline or stewardship of the body, leading to feelings of guilt or inadequacy. The community aspect of church life can also be a double-edged sword—while it can provide support, it can also bring pressure to conform to certain physical ideals.

Meet Your Coach

I am thrilled to share my work as, a distinguished Trauma-Informed Somatic Practitioner, at my upcoming webinar, “Breaking Free: The Impact of Trauma on Weight Loss.” With a wealth of experience and a compassionate approach, I am dedicated to supporting women through movement and reclaiming their well-being through somatic practices.

About De

My name is De Bolton I am a certified Trauma-Informed Somatic Practitioner with over eight years of experience in the field. I hold advanced certifications in somatic therapy, trauma recovery, and mind-body integration. My work focuses on addressing the physical manifestations of trauma and facilitating holistic healing.

I have successfully guided women in their journey toward healing mind, body, and spirit. My most significant qualification stems from my own healing journey from a lifetime of physical and emotional challenges, including codependency.

I was burdened with self-doubt, shame, guilt, and a tendency to prioritize others’ opinions over my own. I lacked boundaries and the knowledge of how to establish them. I struggled with severe leaky gut and debilitating anxiety and depression.

Throughout my journey, I failed to recognize codependent thinking as a significant root cause of my physical and mental health struggles. I mistakenly perceived my mind and body as the problems rather than recognizing their potential to be part of the solution.

Do these experiences resonate with you?

Eventually, I grew weary of feeling unwell and discovered the path to healing through the Healer. Utilizing the methods I’ll share in this live webinar, I have assisted countless women on their healing journeys.

“For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you’

Isaiah 41:13

Are you ready to explore further?

Combining evidence-based practices with a compassionate and client-centered Biblical approach, I empower individuals to understand and support the physical manifestation of deep-seated effects of trauma. My methodology includes body awareness, movement therapy, breathwork, and mindfulness to promote physical and emotional wholeness and well-being. Along with nourishing your body, sharing Biblical truths is of utmost importance, as it brings light to darkness.
