My name is Polly Mertens and I am a life coach, blogger and public speaker. After recovering from 20 years with bulimia, I’ve made it my mission to help millions of women searching for that “missing key” to finally achieve lasting recovery.
If you’re searching for a coach to help you stop bulimia or make another big change in your life, I want to acknowledge you because you’re in action and I wish you the best wherever you are on your journey.
It is ab-so-lute-ly possible to overcome bulimia, anorexia, or any other binge eating disorder and I am a witness to many eating disorder success stories.
Life Re-Started for Me in 2005
I had bulimia for 20 years and have been in complete recovery since 2005. I’m so thankful for the many teachers, coaches, mentors and infinite guidance I’ve learned from. I appreciate my ever-unfolding life and the freedom I’ve experience from the overwhelming struggle I used to face with food and body issues.
When I’m not working on my blog, helping women as their life or bulimia recovery coach, hosting a podcast, giving a talk to a sorority, business group or women’s circle, you’ll find me out on the trails training for my next race like Spartan, Tough Mudder or a 12 hour Adventure Race.
I live full-time in my 32′ motorhome with my kitties exploring national parks, unknown back roads and small towns across the US. My license plate is LVN VRTX for “living in the vortex”. If you’re a student of Abraham Hicks you know that means my happy place and my home brings me great joy.
My home base of San Luis Obispo, CA has been written up by Oprah and other books as the happiest city to live. It’s a small town on the Central Coast of California between LA and San Francisco and I appreciate coming back here during the year to call this place my home.
I have a healthy relationship with food, my body and I can honestly say I’m comfortable in my own skin and I am proud of the work I do and the life I am living. I enjoy the process of learning new things and teaching others what I know so that we may up level together.
My Expectation and Invitation
My expectation with this website and blog are to encourage you to make a big change from wherever you are right now. Of course I’d like to be your life coach to help you release the habit of binging and purging that you may be caught up in, help you to remember who you, are and allow you to be happy and healthy again.
You’re worth it!
As a start I hope you’ll download my ebook which includes bulimia success stories so you will receive my newsletter so we can stay in touch. Once you download the ebook I begin to email you my 10 steps to overcome bulimia. These steps includes what I’ve learned about how to have lasting recovery, be healthy, confident and have a happy life. It is a process. A journey. It takes time and commitment.
I believe you can overcome the habit of bulimia and start living your life with incredible purpose. You know you’re not supposed to live this way – that’s why it feels so bad. I want you to be free just as much as you do.
Let’s work together to make that happen, ok?!
To your beautiful life,
