I want to tell you that it is my passion and calling to help you achieve your weight loss goals.  I, as a formerly obese person, know intimately the struggle with the lifestyle change that is necessary to not only lose weight, but keep it off.  I understand the great challenge but also the great rewards.  I lost 88 pounds along my health journey and am happy to report that I have found a way to successfully keep the weight off while eating tons of healthy food (& one cheat meal per week- yay!).  Everyone has life challenges that seem overwhelming at times.   I am a busy mom of 5 in perimenopause, so I get that sometimes convenience and/or bodily changes can make it more difficult, but let me tell you, it is NOT impossible!  I have used nutrition to heal my body of metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol and other maladies associated with obesity and poor diet. No longer is the doctor threatening to put me on medications to treat the symptoms, because I have found the cure.  If I can do it, I know you can too!  If you’ve been thinking about resuming your health journey, I would love the opportunity to walk alongside you.
