Where were you in your weight and health journey when we met?
I was pretty much at an all time high weight wise (other than being pregnant). I was a bit defeated, tired of working so hard and not seeing progress. I felt like there had to be a better way and the calories in calories out formula did not work for me.
Why was it important to you to improve your health and weight?
I was missing so much due to my weight. I lacked confidence in my physical abilities and I lacked confidence in my appearance. I didn't like how I looked. I pretty much hid.
What had you tried before?
I have tried virtually everything that didn't involve surgery. I am talking 40 some years of weight watchers, jenny craig, keto, macros, fat flush, isagenix, the zone... I worked out with a trainer for 6 months and sent every food log. I tracked every bite and step. Didn't lose a pound that way and when she asked me to give up my one piece of toast, I pretty much quit.
On most programs, I would lose the weight and then hit a wall because I was missing things again but for a different reason. I wasn't comfortable using all my calories to go to a party or restaurant. My weight loss was more important than enjoying company and life :)
Were you skeptical this method would work?
I don't know if I was skeptical. What you said resonated in me and it scared me a bit. I don't know if I felt like I couldn't handle another "failure", was tired of trying or what. You said to trust you, so I did :)
What amazing results did you get right away?
Results were slow but easy. I didn't drop 10 pounds in a week (joking) it was more like a pound or two a week.
What's the biggest benefit for you in doing this work?
The mindset tools help me reframe things when I face challenges.
What would you say to women who are struggling and thinking about reaching out to me for a breakthrough call or help with their journey?
I would say to trust you, trust the process and quit fighting themselves. I've seen women who are resistant and fighting change. They're worried about what they're giving up, not what they're gaining. Let go.
PS- one of the scariest things you asked me to do was to stop tracking my food. I felt like I would gain all my weight back if I wasn't vigilant about the food tracker and step tracker.
