One of the key reasons I'm so passionate about being a health and fitness coach is that the weight loss journey really hits home for me. I myself struggled with body image and self-esteem throughout my teenage years. After gaining more than 25 lbs in university I developed a terrible perception of myself. When I looked in the mirror I was not happy. I did not have the resources or support on how to make a lifestyle change and it was a huge challenge. Going from a diet of lasagna, breaded veal cutlets, nachos, pizza and having delicious homemade desserts frequently at my disposal made even the thought of 'dieting' seem too difficult to accomplish and the ability to lose weight far beyond my capabilities. However, through every struggle I persevered and began to understand strategies to make this a lifestyle change instead of a 'diet'. Through this experience I developed an immense passion for food and fitness and I have developed and evolved both physically and mentally into a much stronger and happier woman.
Learning how to create recipes that taste AMAZING and never make me feel like I'm missing out, and developing an extensive understanding of food and nutrition by becoming a Registered Holistic Nutritionist have helped me to become someone who has knowledge and experience in making a positive and dramatic change in your life.
Since then I have lost and kept off almost 40 lbs and never looked back. I truly believe that if I was able to do it, anyone can.
I truly want to change people's lives and help them to be successful. Helping people to look and feel better and take back their health is the most rewarding and fulfilling experience I could imagine. Through giving extensive support and educating people how to make changes in a HEALTHY and DO-ABLE way will undoubtedly lead them down a path to success.
