Hello and Welcome!
I’m Lucy-Anne Lewis. Also known as Lucy, Luce, and ‘MUUUUUUMMMMMMM’.
And, I used to be afraid to take up space in the world. Believing I was just too big. Too fat. Too loud. Too annoying. And simply taking up more space that I was allowed to take up. I was 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 everyone would like me, and no one would say I was annoying. And all the good things I wanted, and all the things I wanted to do would be available to me.
Because I truly believed there was something wrong with me. I truly believed that I was the reason why the diets didn’t work. Because I was a big fat failure and no one would ever love me and want me or find me desirable and I would have to keep living this life that I hate because that’s all I’m worth.
Any of that sound familiar to you?
I realise now, how wrong I was! I realise now how exhausting it was to live that life. To be constantly in the pursuit of thinness and engaging in really dangerous behaviours around diet and exercise.
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’d 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 scared, 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. And because that had been my identity for so long. 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.
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. In fact, I let my inner 5 year old dress me, and I’ve never felt more ‘me’.
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 say a big ‘Fuck you!’ to patriarchal body and beauty standards and become the most joyful person you know. Accepting yourself and your body, and prioritising your joy every single day.
Get to know me a little more.
One of my superpowers is to make you feel incredibly safe and comfortable. 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, our rescue cat Buffy, and Popcorn the axolotl.
I believe food is magic, and I can’t believe I spent half my life being scared of it.
My Human Design is 3/5 Generator, and I’m a Taurus. I am here to live life, and respond to what the Universe brings me. When I am deep in my joy, I am wildly magnetic, and this has proven true time and time again.
I love to journal. Nothing brings me more clarity. I’ve uncovered the answers too 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 love to create and work part-time as a process art studio running both adults and kids craft and journaling classes.
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 Lucy-Anne Show.
I have a Diploma of Counselling and my Life Coaching qualification is from the Beautiful You Coaching Academy.
I believe in radical self love and radical acceptance.
I believe in magic, and I believe that we all carry a little magic within us.
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.
