I was laying on a raft at a close by lake. I loved to lay out and take my daughter to play in the sand. I was minding my own business and soaking up the sun. I heard a lady and man talking just a little ways off. There were not many others at the lake that day. So it was pretty quiet. She said to her friend, "At least I don't look as fat as her laying on that raft." I couldn't believe what I was hearing. First anger but then came the embarassment. I hadn't done anything to her. How rude! I got up and left. I remember this one comment changed me forever. I knew that it was time to do something. My heart was broke but I let it empower me instead of feeling self pity. It was my motivator.
I began learning how to eat, exercise and become healthy. I continued to struggle with binge eating and thought it would never end. I lost the weight but I didn't lose the self criticism. No matter what I did I still felt like I didn't measure up. I learned that the weight loss wasn't the only key. It helped but I needed to work through the emotions of the things I believed about myself. The feelings I felt affected all of my relationships. I poured out my pain on others through words and actions. So not only did I need to change my weight but I needed to change my mindset. I worked for Jenny Craig as a consultant for a year and a half. This is where I found my passion. I loved working with others and teaching them how to become empowered to take control of their lives. Life doesn't have to remain the same.
I made the decision to go to school and learn the healthiest way to eat, lose weight and help others get there also.
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge and personal experience, I will help you create a completely personalized “road map to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
