I have a full closet and yet "I have nothing to wear" often crossed my mind. Determined to make the most of the pieces I've so lovingly chosen for myself, I asked Kim to come over and do an in-home styling session.
I highly recommend a closet clean out and styling session with Kim! I hate shopping and choosing clothes in the morning, but my styling session was fun and efficient. Now I'm actually excited to pick out a new outfit in the mornings.
I have been in a shopping/clothing rut basically since becoming a mom. I tried online stylists but didn’t feel heard and underwhelmed with the whole thing. I was excited to try in-person and Kim did not disappoint.
I hired Kim Ludeman to help me clean out my closet! I knew I needed to get rid of about half of my clothes - I've got stuff from ten years ago, stuff from before having a baby, and from when we lived in Hawaii.
Since having a baby (and quite honestly, even before), I have been beyond overwhelmed by my closet. So many pieces that didn't fit well, weren’t my true style, too many options in general, and absolutely not organized.
Kim was terrific in helping me organize my closet. I think at first I thought I didn’t need any help. But as we talked it was evident I had dragged my feet and wasn’t getting it done.
Kim Ludeman came to my home and did one of her closet clean out sessions with me. I got rid of 3 bags of clothes and shoes!!!!!
I would just like to say that I have been a part of Captivatingly Confident since it has started. I was also a member of the first small group that Kim facilitated! Guys - it was life changing! This group gives you a glimpse of some of the transformation that truly starts to happen! Kim is amazing! She listens, encourages and most of all gives you the tools you need to really apply those changes to your life. The small group is kept completely confidential! I love this page and the community that Kim is striving to build. What better way than through bravery and confidence!!!
I love how there was a structure to the group. Each weeks exercise helped me learn more about myself and my habits. Shoulds and what I think people expect from me control my life so I am now trying to take back that control. Thank you Kim for an amazing experience.

Being in the Captivatinly Confident small group has helped me grow as a person and make better choices for myself (in an emotional sense, as well as food and exercise). Kim is absolutely one of the kindest and most knowledgeable people I know. I am leaving he small group with the confidence that I can and will continue to make choices for myself that keep me what I consider healthy.

Kim is an amazing person! I went into this group with such a bad image of myself and a lot of self doubt. I honestly didn’t think I would have made it all the way, but I did! Kim and our small group have opened up my eyes to see that I’m not alone in how I feel. I’ve learned to accept and appreciate ME. I’ve learned that I have the power to change me by making better choices as well as accepting the skin I live in. I have the strength and courage, now, to say yes and no. I truly left feeling more confident than I ever have in my life and that means the world to me. Thank you, Kim, for your time and effort to creating a safe and positive space for women to learn and feel confident about ourselves.

I have struggled with body image issues, food socialization issues, and weight my whole life. At my heaviest, I was a size 16 as a high school junior. I had tried everything and had some success with popular programs counting points or drinking shakes. But then I met Kim. She taught me about real food, how to feed my body, how to move my body so it made sense, but most of all she changed my mind. I don't know where I would be without Kim. Today, I am an active mom of two, a distance runner, weightlifter, and real food eater. Listen to Kim, she knows what she's talking about.

"I've known Kim for years and have watched her career progress closely. Kim is a born leader and a woman who follows her heart, her values and her passion with intense resolve. I would venture to say that nearly every woman struggles with body shame. Some cover their bodies up, some work them out relentlessly or starve themselves - but the amount of women suffering from body shame is overwhelming. In Kim's casual, approachable way, she welcomes women into self-love while helping them make choices that are HEALTHY, not hurtful to their bodies. Kim is raw and vulnerable - women relate to her, heck, I relate to her. She's a blessing and a source of hope and courage to anyone who has the joy of knowing her."
- Anita Hodges, Business and Life Coach
"Captivatingly Confident is so much more than just a business. It's a lifestyle, a frame of mind-of-soul and life's calling for Kim. Never will you meet a woman more dedicated and sincere in the task of helping women see their most beautiful selves. While she is not only knowledgeable, she has a contagious joy and energy, and really works with you in the most personalized way! Her passion and know-how really make her the perfect combo of cheerleader and mentor and gets you the ultimate result- CONFIDENCE! She is a dream to work with, (I can't say that enough) and I would highly recommend her services."
- Kalena Lorrain Chavez, Professional Beauty Educator
"Kim Ludeman has the heart of a teacher. I have been in her true health talks community for over a year. Kim always delivers a truthful and loving message. During college, I experienced loss and used food as a source of comfort. I didn’t like the skin I was living in for a long time. In the community group, Kim encouraged us to do what we love today. Now I take long walks and practice yoga. Thanks to Kim I also eat without the distractions of media. I’m truly thankful to Kim and this group."
Anne Kearny, Caregiver
"Kim has been incredibly helpful to me over the years! She has used her wide range of knowledge and wisdom to tailor-make a program that works with my body's specific needs. Her holistic, reasonable, approach to exercise, nutrition and emotions has been a gift to me and worth every penny!"
Connie Baker, LPC
"I grew up as the “fat” kid. I was teased every day in elementary school. At holiday time my brother, who was perfectly thin, would get the treats and candy. I didn’t. This created a warped body image that I clung to well into adulthood. Six and a half years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes. My mom had died five years before from complications from the same disease. I made a lifestyle change and began to walk every day and changed the way that I was eating. On a Black Friday watching periscope, I discovered Kim selling Lularoe. I was instantly captivated by her positivity. I was excited to watch her True Health talks. As I have come to accept my body and its faults, which I am quick to see, Kim was talking about the importance to see the positives. It has helped me to accept all of me...the good and the not so good. She is cheering me on as I continue to walk and work to be diabetic free. She doesn’t judge my body faults but is encouraging to the lifestyle that I am living. Kim, thank you for all that you do for each of us."
Catherine Gustafson, Child Educator
"Kim has such an uplifting spirit, just being around her is refreshing to the soul. Not only that, but she knows her stuff! It’s been an honor to be part of something this extraordinary. Captivatingly confident is helping me to recognize things I never saw in myself and learn new ways to grow from within. Kim is the ultimate guide to helping you identify strengths as well as areas to grow at your own pace."
