Hello and welcome to my website! In these pages you will find information and tools to assist you in learning how to make healthy lifestyle changes.
I know what it’s like to struggle with weight; I did it for decades, and the battle continues. Yo-yo dieting, bizarre fad diets, binge eating, the negative self-image, the torturous self-deprivation… Living this way drove me to a staggering weight of 430 lbs! So you could say I’ve “been there, done that”.
Between 2009 and 2011, I dieted and exercised off 250 pounds of excess weight. I thought I had all the answers. But while trying to reclaim my “normal” life, some of that weight crept back on. I discovered I was going about it all wrong, that how I feel is much more important than how much I weigh! That day, I threw out my scale and began the search for an eating program that fit my lifestyle and my core values, made me feel good about what I was putting in my mouth, and didn’t leave me wanting more.
It hasn’t been easy and I still stumble on my journey, but without the support of my trainer, mentors, friends and family, I wouldn’t have made it this far. I feel like George A. Custer wrote this especially for me: “It’s not how many times you get knocked down that count, it’s how many times you get back up!”
If you, like me, are in search of answers and if you, like me need someone in your corner, then this site is for you! I created this website to share my experiences and provide support for anyone looking to reach their health and wellness goals.
