Hello and Welcome!
I’m Lucy-Anne Lewis. Also known as Lucy, Luce, the Real Life Rebel and ‘MUUUUUUMMMMMMM’.
And, I used to be just like you. Afraid to take up space in the world. Believing I was just too big. Too fat. And therefore, taking up more space that I was allowed to take up. Constantly comparing myself to other women. Trying every diet under the sun, trying to change my body, because once I was thin, I’d be super happy and I could start living my life.
Because I truly believed there was something wrong with me. Why the fuck can’t I stick to this diet? Why did I have to be fat? Come one, Lucy, get it together!
What a fucking waste of my own time.
Not to mention super exhausting, totally toxic, and just plain wrong.
So one day, quite literally, I woke up and decided something had to give. I couldn’t keep doing this anymore. Other people were out there living their lives in the bodies they have, in fat bodies, and not hating themselves. I know, I’ve seen them on Tumblr. I should give that a try. It’s about the only thing I haven’t tried. I’m going to try not hating my body instead.
Well, I was pooping my pants with fear, I’ll tell you that. I was so afraid of the judgement. Of what people in my life would think. Because, we live in a society that normalises disordered eating and body image issues. So, the idea of me not hating my body, healing my relationship with food and ditching diets, and the idea of being a fat person simply existing in the world was pretty fucking scary.
My internal dialogue sounded something like this – do I choose this path and actually I might find happiness and peace and start living my life? Or, do I keep trying to hate myself into a version I can like, crying myself to sleep every night wishing I was different? Literally starving myself because my body doesn’t look how bodies are ‘supposed’ to look? Does anyone actually know what the ‘perfect’ body looks like? All I know is my body is not it. Does the ‘perfect body even exist?’ (It does not) and I’m so tired of weighing out all my food, and being hungry all the time, and eating things I don’t actually like because of ‘health’. And, how can that fat women on the internet love herself and dress in beautiful clothing that doesn’t hide her body and I can’t? WHY? Why can’t I? Why can’t I just look how I look and be who I am and be happy?
Why can’t I?
Who said I can’t?
Why do I think I can’t?
So, I reached out. I got help, and I changed everything.
I decided to accept my body, exactly as it is.
I decided to stop disordered eating, heal my relationship with food and actually enjoy eating.
I decided to dress in clothes that make me really fucking happy.
I decided to follow my joy every day.
I decided that I was not going to change myself to try to fit in with people anymore.
Now, I will not negotiate who I am with anyone. I get explosively excited about things. I have child like joy. I love and accept who I am, and I claim my rightful space in the world.
And, you can too.
There is nothing wrong with your body.
I am here to change the world, by helping women just like you accept their bodies and live their joy.
Get to know me a little more.
One of my superpowers is to make you feel incredibly comfortable to get vulnerable. I want you to feel so seen and so heard. I am a magical space holder, and extreme listener.
I’m married to my best friend, and together we have a daughter, her name is Matilda. Motherhood both broke me, and made me whole. She is wild spirit, a firecracker, who already knows her own mind, and takes no shit. I love them fiercely. We live in the Perth Hills with our mini Dachshund, Kransky The Sausage and our rescue cat Buffy.
I believe food is magic, and I am here for it.
My Human Design is 3/5 Generator, and I’m a Taurus. I pull life to me. I am here to live life, and respond to what the Universe brings me.
I love to journal. Nothing brings me more clarity. I’ve uncovered the answers to many questions within the pages of my journal.
I’ve learned to embrace the fact that I’m a messy person, clean, but messy.
I wholeheartedly believe that everyone is doing the best they can, and that we are all worthy.
I love to roller skate.
I am here to use my voice. So I started a podcast. The Real Life Rebel Podcast.
I have a Diploma of Counselling. A Life Coaching qualification from Beautiful You Coaching Academy. And, I’m an Advanced Certified NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback practitioner.
I believe in radical self love and self care.
I believe in magic, and I believe that you are magic. I carry with me all the knowledge and wisdom of the women who came before me. I was put here to help. To heal. To change the world.
If any of this speaks to you, then I would love nothing more than to hear from you. You can find out how to work with me here, or send me a message here. Please, feel free to ask me anything. I can’t wait to hear from you.
