Welcome! I am so happy you are here!
Helping others lose weight has been my life passion for over 30 years, and this passion is rooted in my own personal struggles. I believe relationships should be based on mutual trust, respect, compassion and understanding. It is in this spirit I would like the opportunity to build a relationship with you, so I will share my story first.
When I was a month old, I was involved in car crash that damaged my pituitary gland, and my body does not naturally produce hormones. Having to take Estrogen replacements made my difficult weight loss journey even more challenging.
When I was 10 years old, my father died in car train accident. I was left devastated and fatherless at a time in my life when a girl needs her father the most. Although my dad was no longer there, food was always was, and it helped to numb the pain. There began my life long struggle with emotional eating. I have learned emotional eating has nothing do with hunger in your stomach, and has everything to do with the hunger in your heart.
My Aunt Bonnie was one of the most wonderful people I have ever known. Year after year she slowly began to gain and gain. She genuinely tried to lose weight, but was repeatedly unsuccessful. She eventually came to her own conclusion she would always be morbidly obese, and stopped trying. My sweet Aunt Bonnie unexpectedly passed away in her sleep on Easter morning at the age of 51. I have learned the tragic consequences of what happens when you give up hope.
