Why me? How can I help you?
I was once 358 lbs and morbidly obese.
Even though I've lost over 50% of my body weight (185 lbs) naturally (no surgery, no deprivation, no starvation, no weight loss gimmicks), I still remember how I felt at my heaviest.
I know what it is like to be in such pain and worry from obesity. I know how it is much easier to stay stuck than to change.
I know what it is like when fear holds you back.
I know how overwhelming it can be to start when you have so many changes you need to make.
I'm here to tell you that it will be worth it!

This is what I’ve gained from creating a healthy lifestyle:
1. I don't worry if people are staring at me or if I won't fit in a seat. I hold my head high as I walk down the street and am proud of my accomplishments and my new healthy lifestyle. I don't feel uncomfortable in my body anymore!
2. I am no longer held back by my health so I am able to actually live my life again. I have more energy. I don't feel bloated and I have better digestion. I am able to be more active, travel, socialize with friends and family without feeling embarrassed, ashamed, or like a failure, and much more. I don't dread going to the doctor to get my blood test results, blood pressure taken, or get weighed. Instead, I enjoy going to the doctor to show him/her how healthy I am now!
3. Many if not all of my health issues were resolved: Excessive sweating, joint pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux, eczema, and much more.
4. Most importantly, I learned to love myself unconditionally. I can teach you how to do this for yourself! This simply means loving yourself no matter what instead of beating yourself up for your mistakes. When you give yourself compassion just like you would a loved one or pet, your life begins to change. My self-confidence has grown. I am proud of my accomplishments. I became empowered. When you take your power back and make changes for yourself, your world changes. New doors have opened for me and I am free to live my life as I had always dreamed of! Nothing can hold me back from achieving my goals!
5. I became unstoppable when I realized that my fear can no longer hold me back! I am able to do things I never thought I could do. What have you always wanted to do? Run a 5K? Half-marathon? Hike a mountain? Zip line? Travel? Anything is possible! The sky is the limit!
6. With my health in order, I am able to get more out of my life and give more to those I love which has enriched my relationships.
7. I have lost the weight and will keep it off as a by product of my healthy lifestyle changes! When you lose weight, your confidence increases. I am able to fit into clothes I never thought I'd be able to. I have more energy. I am more active. I no longer cancel plans because I have nothing to wear or am embarrassed for others to see me so unhealthy. I am proud of myself and my accomplishments. My joint pain and other aches are gone. I no longer sweat excessively and am no longer out of breath when barely doing any activity. I no longer feel like a failure. I realize that I am and always have been a WINNER! I feel STRONG inside and out. I feel so proud of my new body! You can too!
When your health no longer holds you back, you will be FREE!!
