I believe healthy eating should fit into your existing lifestyle, not change everything to lose a few pounds. Everyone has the right to feel sexy, desirable, healthy and most importantly HAPPY! I firmly believe all these goals can be achieved through eating real foods that your body needs. Although I specialize in grain-free living, that is not for everyone. Everyone’s body is different, it’s about finding what works for you and sticking to it.
A few years back I was 45 pounds overweight and very unhappy with my life. I didn’t know even where to begin. I knew I wanted to lose weight and feel confident naked. Yes I said naked. I wanted to look at myself in the mirror and know I loved what I saw.
I cut out fast foods, desserts and Starbucks. I hired a trainer 3 times a week and worked my butt off. I counted calories, weighed myself daily and kept food journals. But over a 2 year period I only lost 15 pounds. I was devastated! I felt like I was doing everything possible and I still had 30 pounds to go.
That’s when I mentally hit rock bottom. Like you, I was tired of dieting, tired of having no energy and tired of being that girl that was just a little “overweight!” I just wanted to give up. But I knew things would only get worse if I didn’t make a change now.
I wanted to eat foods I loved, exercise a couple times per week, and most importantly feel confident and happy again.
As you likely know, I’ve now made my dreams come true.
I’ve lost a total of 45 pounds.
I wake up every single day with energy, confidence and an overall happy feeling about the future ahead.
And despite what everyone says, I don’t spend hours in the kitchen or astronomical amounts of money to be healthy.
The reason I am sharing my story with you is because I want you to know two things.
I understand exactly where you’re at and what you’re going through.
I can show you exactly what it takes to get to the other side.
Because the bottom line is this: I’ve done it. I’ve coached others to do it and I know with every
fiber of my soul that if you want this bad enough, you can do it too.
