Resisting urges every day wasn't my idea of a life well-lived.

In fact, it was defeating. 

Resisting led to fighting.  And I never won.

The guilt I would feel after giving in to my urges created more questions than answers. It was just food, after all… Why was it always so hard?  Why was I feeling such shame on the way to my goal?

I didn’t want my body built out of shame.  

I wanted to be done dieting, but I didn’t know where to find the plan that I really needed, the one that would help me understand my urges and how to stop giving in to them.  

I found the roadmap to undoing urges.

I didn’t want to sacrifice my goals because urges were an obstacle.

Other people around me were achieving weight loss success… Why not me?

I felt cornered – either choose my body and health goals while resisting and fighting urges, or choose the path of least resistance and avoid my urges by eating what I wanted but never feeling fit and healthy. 

I wanted to believe I had more options than that.

I served in the U.S. Navy for nearly 10 years, and throughout my time in active duty, my weight affected the sense of pride and commitment I had for serving. As badly as I didn’t want to admit it, my weight was draining my self-confidence 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).  I even became a Certified Personal Trainer hoping that the knowledge I acquired would help me undo my urges around food.  

I felt guilty calling myself a leader – both in the military and in fitness – because I never wanted my coworkers and colleagues to know I couldn’t resist my urges around food.  

especially didn’t want my family to know.  

I felt ashamed of myself when my clothes and uniform were tight again on Monday mornings.  I so badly wanted to lose the weight permanently, but my urges overpowered me no matter what diet I was on.  I found nothing that fit into my job’s 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 women and men who wanted the same for themselves. 

Even though I was a certified Personal Trainer, a Sport Nutrition Specialist and earned 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.  That’s how you control your urges.  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

There is no program designed specifically for permanent weight loss that focuses on undoing urges. Typical weight loss programs are missing the most critical pieces.  They have the nutrition and exercise pieces, but they don’t have the mental-emotional tie-in that is the key for lasting results.  Among all the diets and weight loss programs I found and tried, I couldn’t find the solution anywhere. 

So I created it.

My career is focused solely on this – helping women and men lose weight CONFIDENTLY and PERMANENTLY.  Undoing urges is part of the process.

I love, more than anything, helping someone who has an idea, or a dream, for his or her body, health, fitness, and life.  A dream that reflects the pride of one’s achievements, a dream that embodies what a person desires to look like, feel like, and how to live the very best life that is within us. 

I love helping those who want to get out of their own way to accomplish their weight loss goals but don’t know how to, or are afraid to start. Urges can be fearful.  Trust me, I know.  But they can also be undone.  On top of serving in the Navy and being a good wife and daughter, being a Life Coach for someone on a permanent weight loss journey is one of the greatest honors of my life. 

I know what you’re going through and, believe me, there is nothing wrong or broken about you.  Like me, you’re a smart woman or man who knows there is a solution out there for your problem. You know that once your urges are no longer a problem, then your goals are as good as done.  Then what would your life be like?  

You’ve come this far… it’s time for me to help you get the rest of the way through to true weight loss success.

If you’re currently having trouble losing weight and keeping it off because of your urges around food, then let’s talk.  I’ve been in the thick of it with giving in to urges and feeling like I would never recover, or feeling like I would be forced to fight them for as long as I kept up the desire to be lean and athletic.  But I did recover.  My dreams mattered.  

Your dreams MATTER.
