The biggest challenges we face seem colossal when we have to face them alone. To break old, unhealthy habits and start new, healthy ones, you need a champion, a mentor, a friend. That's me.
It has been a long struggle to get my weight in check. The idea of doing my own preventative health care became very serious.But that started a 6 year struggle! In a fraction of that time, you would think I would have gotten to where I wanted to be health wise, but no...it literally took me 6 years to lose 40lbs. In that time, like most people, I did not know how to eat...so I started with the obvious...exercise. I started running a lot, marathons even, and it started a yo-yo process. Lose some, gain some, lose some, gain some...and that was my life for 6 years until I finally had enough. As I like to say, I tried to out run my bad eating habits. With the 40 miles a week running plus riding my bike the cravings for more food grew. The thought of eating a whole pizza or a bag of reese's cups "because I ran today" was present every night. Eating the wrong foods made the cravings worse. In the last 2 months I have totally changed my habits and at last have dropped 20 more lbs!! As I am getting closer to my goal Nicole has also joined me and has dropped over 18 lbs in 5 weeks. We both are so excited...it seems we're always talking about how much better we feel and we're really working together to create fun ways to continue to get healthy together. We're even excited about Thanksgiving...knowing that we have the tools to enjoy delicious healthy food and not feel terrible the next day. I have also learned to control my eating along with my exercise goals. Health has become so important to me, I'm in the process of becoming a certified health coach. If you're tired of struggling too, message me and I'll be happy to talk about your health goals and help you choose a plan to create results.
