I was busy running around, taking care of my family, involved in our church and community. Like many of my friends, I wanted to drop a few pounds, but told myself that I looked “ok”. And then I looked at what should have been an heirloom picture from a family cruise and realized that

I didn’t even recognize the person looking back at me in the picture

I had a choice to make… continue to rationalize my priorities or face the facts, dig deep, and make a change.

What I’ve Learned

  • A cookie cutter approach won’t work

  • We all need support, encouragement, and accountability

  • Lasting change requires a healthy relationship with food and activity

  • Staying current on the latest diets and trends can be exhausting ~ and leaves you to feel as though “it’s not worth it”

  • Losing the weight can literally help to save your life, allowing you and your doctors to notice changes in your body that are outside the realm of midlife changes to be expected

  • It’s never too late to begin building a healthier, stronger, happier lifestyle

I can empower you to create your lasting change also.
