This wasn’t the sort of battle you expected to face every day when you signed up.

Why is it so easy to serve our country with pride but so hard to keep the weight off without stress, guilt and rebound? 

We pride ourselves in our willingness to serve but aren’t proud of ourselves because of our constant weight loss struggles.

That internal conflict ends here.

Serving in the military was one of the greatest honors of my life.

The pride I feel knowing my value and my contribution in serving my country is unparalleled and is a desire I hope women and men continue to pursue for themselves.

Nicole Terwey, Certified Life & Weight Loss Coach and Lieutenant (USNR)

Throughout my time in active duty, which was nearly 10 years, my weight affected the sense of pride and commitment I had for serving in the United States Navy. As badly as I didn’t want to admit it, my weight was draining my confidence in myself as a smart woman and as a leader – and then I felt guilty for feeling that way.

I tried every diet (natural and legal) and workout program to lose the weight (which worked) and to keep it off (which didn’t). Through deployments, workups, physical fitness tests, PCS’s, and all the other demands that we must fulfill in the Armed Forces, I found nothing that fit into my military lifestyle and my goals of losing weight for good.

I Kept Believing Permanent Weight Loss Was Possible – Even For Me

I was beyond determined to find the solution for myself, and when I found it, I vowed to teach it to military women and men – in the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard. 

Even though I was a certified Personal Trainer and a Weight Coach and have a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership, it was Life Coaching that taught me how to keep the weight off permanently.  Legitimate and professional Life Coaching, too, not the #LifeCoaching kind you find online from those who aren’t truly certified as one.

I learned that the most important component to lasting results was something I had all along: the immense power of my brain. 

Weight loss is a mental strategy, and permanent weight loss requires managing your mind.  I became a certified Life Coach to teach the cognitive commitment tools that can only come from rewiring thought patterns in your brain.

Weight Goes Down as a Result of Increased Confidence – Not the Other Way Around

Military fitness programs are designed for men and women combined since that is the nature of the military mentality.
There is no program designed specifically for permanent weight loss – it’s largely a one-size-fits-all approach. I couldn’t find the solution anywhere – throughout the Department of Defense or anywhere else I’ve searched. 

So I created it.

My new career is focused solely on this – helping military women and men lose weight CONFIDENTLY and PERMANENTLY.

I love, more than anything, helping someone who has pride for having “Served in the U.S. Armed Forces” stamped in the storybook of their life ALSO learn to have immense pride and trust in their abilities to become the slimmer, more confident, and strong leader they always wanted to be.  On top of serving in the Navy and being a good wife and daughter, being a Life Coach for military members is one of the greatest honors of my life. 

I know what you’re going through, and trust me, there is nothing wrong or broken about you – no matter what Uncle Sam says about your weight.  Like me, you’re a smart woman or man who knows there’s a solution out there for your problem. You’ve committed your life to serving others… it’s time for me to help you learn to care for you.

You Are Not Alone in Your Weight Loss Struggles as a Military Leader.

I am a servicemember just like you, but when we work together, I am your Life Coach and Weight Loss Coach.  Our time together is spent coaching you to find the root causes of your problems, understanding them and working through them. 

My specialty lies in creating a safe space for you to unload ALL the things that are materializing in the form of additional fat on your body. And we work through every single bit of it.

We’ll create a plan designed specifically for you and your life, so you get the results you want. In my experience and in others, weight loss is more effortless than you would think once you’ve worked through all the reasons that have kept you from achieving your goals in the past.

If you’re a military woman or man currently serving in Active Duty, the Reserves, or the National Guard, and you’re having trouble losing weight and keeping it off, then let’s talk.  I know what you face daily as a military member myself – the shift work, the traditions, the expectations, the regulations… ALL of it.
