Lifestyle & Weight Management
Have you ever had a life altering event that shifted the way you saw life, yourself and even the world? As a young adult, my life had it’s challenges. What seemed to be a carefree and adventurous time for others, was a rollercoaster of emotional eating, high anxiety, stressed fueled relationships anchored in people pleasing and low self esteem intimate connections. This was the late 90s. I was living a double life to fit in, do what was expected, while slowly drowning in my internal ocean of tears, fears and insecurities. During this time, I had the presence of mind, what I now know is spirit, to seek help through what was accessible to me. I started walking as often as I could. I overcame the cultural challenges of eating the way my ancestors did to choose healthier options just to feel good day to day. Once I trusted myself enough to know that I was capable enough to do new things, I became Certified as a Lifestyle & Weight Management Coach. This was really a selfish pursuit at the time. I was raised in a family that didn’t depend on others. So me seeking help or an outlet to fix a problem in my life, would have seemed like a form of weakness. But I overcame there criticisms to create a program that has provided me the tools and resources for maintaining Balance in my own lifestyle & weight management.
Although Wellness has been an important aspect of focus for me for over 25 years. I still am giving thanks for the journey of growth that continues for me and all those I am connected to. As a Lifestyle & Weight Management Coach and Holistic Life Coach, I have been one of my best clients over these years.(more…)
