I have had my struggles with my weight for most of my life, but four years ago I had a health crisis. I have six children, hypothyroidism, and I am postmenopausal. I knew I had to find a predictable way to lose weight when my endocrinologist told me I was diabetic. Because I was facing foot surgery, I knew I couldn’t exercise my way to my healthy BMI, so my doctor referred me to the nutritionist at the hospital. She told me that I needed to begin eating six small meals a day – something high-protein low-carb.
I felt so overwhelmed that I cried. As a busy homeschool mom, I felt challenged by preparing even one meal a day, much less SIX! Soon after, my physical therapist told me she was a health coach and she was certain she could help me. After eight months of her encouragement to learn and implement the habits of health, I was able to lose 60 pounds! My blood sugar was in the normal range, and I lowered my cholesterol by 100 points.
I never want to go back! My life is so much better now. I have lots of energy, which I’m thankful for when I am running after my little grandchildren! Now, I can run after them instead of watching them from my chair. I have more energy, more peace of mind, and more confidence. So many of my family and friends saw the difference in my life. They said, “What’s your secret?,” so I decided to become a health coach, so that I could share this hope and health with everyone who is ready to begin to not only achieve and maintain a healthy BMI, but to realize a lifelong transformation, one healthy habit at a time.
I really had no idea how lucrative it could be to work at this job, organizing my life around what matters most. I’ve achieved victory and I can walk alongside you while you do too! Perhaps my story is resonating with you, or you know someone who would benefit from a better body, better mind, or better finances.
