I have always been health-conscious, but I did not expect this level of quality of life! Allllmost able to do a push-up from the ground, so very, very close—before I began I could barely lift my left shoulder above my head and getting shirts on and sports bras was a literal pain in my shoulder!
I've lost 14 pounds and almost 12 inches and gone from a tight size 12 to a comfortable size 10! And I've kept it off even with crazy life happenings!
My favorite part about working with you specifically, versus my former two trainers was the mindset. I already knew WHAT I needed to do mostly, but I was getting in my own way. You taught me to be kind to myself. The scale is now a data point instead of a mood influencer. I just take in thevinfo and decide what that means overall! No more “bad/good” days based on what a stupid machine says!
I DID it! I have made this a part of my life!
I fit back into my favorite jeans and I went from being able to do zero push ups to sets of 6!! All at age 47.
I don’t know what sort of brilliant sorcery you used, but over the
year+ we spent working together, my relationships with food and scale have transformed into something almost unrecognizable. I see food now as something to enjoy and experiment with – “what combination of veggies and beans will help me hit my protein goal? What would these muffins taste like if I added a dash of protein powder,” etc. – rather than something to dread.
I have been in a battle with my body my entire life. And while you said several things I had read before or discovered in the past, the combination of your knowledge, your humor, your conviction, and your clear love was the absolutely magic bullet for me. I know that, no matter how bad I felt or how frustrated I was or how little I felt I had progressed, you would ALWAYS have empowering, helpful
words for me, words that truly helped – not just an empty platitude – and you were able to point out he positives in everything I had done or tried. I have never been more sure that I had a partner in this process.
