Years of failed attempts to gain control of my physical weight left me at my lowest point, frustrated, angry and confused. I had given up on myself and really did not believe I could change what I had become. I had tried all the diets out there and was stuck in the cycle (many can relate to) which was to start a program, make some progress and then quit, only to gain all the weight back plus more. You would think progress would motivate me to continue?
In January 2008, understanding why I "couldn't" succeed in this area of my life when I was successful in other areas became more important to me than losing the physical weight.
In May 2008, I connected with Bill Phillips, author of Body for Life, Founder and CEO of EAS, Co-Founder of Metrix, and his work Transformation. His teachings where a contributing factor in my discovery that all the time I thought I couldn't, it was really that I wouldn't .
My personal experience releasing 50 pounds of physical weight and gaining even more as a result of the inner work has made clear for me that positive, healthy change is possible for each and every one of us no matter where we are in the process.
Privileged with an opportunity to guide others through Bill's 18 Step process towards improving overall health, mind, body, heart and soul, as a Transformation Guide/Coach (2008-2010 Transformation Ventures, Inc.), led me to break from my corporate sales and marketing career for a change into the field of health and fitness.
My passion is to help others let go of what ever holds them back from taking action towards bettering their health. I believe by implementing simple, gradual, sustainable improvements in the way we think, the way we eat and the way we move, we can make lasting changes towards our overall health and in turn inspire others to do the same.
