Those were the words I said to myself as I looked down at the nearly empty container of ice cream. At this point in my life I was depressed, morbidly obese and I felt hopeless. My marriage was falling apart and the joy I once had felt as though it had been sucked out through my ears. I was empty, despite the joy I should have felt. Home of my dreams, two awesome sons and a husband who worked very hard to give us all he could. Yet, there I was. Eating ice cream in the dark.
My weight at this time was over 325 lbs. I was a beached whale. Nothing had helped. Not the shots in my butt to boost metabolism, the Jazzercise classes 3 times a week, not the eating plans or the pre-packaged foods that came delivered to the door. I was dying and I knew it. I didn't want to see family or friends. I hid in pictures behind my sons. I laughed as though everything was fine. Yet I was dying inside. I HAD to make a change.
It has been nearly 25 years since that weight nearly killed me. I continued the yo-yo dieting for many years. I have lost weight only to regain it again. Time after time after time. Enough was enough. High blood pressure, pre-diabetes, joint pain, inability to sleep at night, it all caught up to me a few years ago. I took action and went back to school. And now I help people who are just like me. Struggling to find that sweet spot of health, happiness and no more pain.
Today I am rehanging my shingle, so to speak. I am putting the finishing touches on this new site and also putting together a small cookbook that will help my new clients on this wild and crazy journey Back into Health. I do hope you will consider joining me.
OPEN SOON! And I do look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals.
