I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

My top weight was 210 lbs. as a 15 year old. As odd as it seems, I realize now I was blessed to have that happen to me early on in my life, so I could change my habits, live a healthy happy life and support others in doing the same. I had struggled over the years like we all do, but mainly keeping my weight off through learned practices. Then like many of us may have done during the turn in the economy in 2007, I wound up eating through some of the trying times. I gained close to 30 lbs. which didn't help matters. I also was perimenopause and thought 'that was it - my life as a size 4-6 was over?. I shot up to a 10-12 and it was only until my only pair of pants that fit got shredded in the laundry, I knew I had to do something. It was around the same time that I came across the Passion Test by Janet Atwood. As much to my surprise I found my top five passions were all about helping people to lose weight. With the age of computers and numerous resources available at our fingertips I envisioned a support structure for the busy person that included coaching, nutritionist, and easy access to doctors for questions. I started working on creating a website, wanting to connect with experts to have this dream come true. Then in walked a friend back into my life that lost 25lbs through the Take Shape for Life Program, which was my exact vision. The rest is history. I got on the program right away. I lost 5 lbs. the first week and 2lbs. per week thereafter until I reached my goal. I loved the food, I felt so great, and satisfied with all the choices. I am back in my size 6 clothing. I have more energy than I ever experienced in my body, I learned to eat six small meals a day?and I become a Health Coach to follow that dream of helping others in their Journey to Optimal Health Journey.
