Progress! Success! and the Courage to change!!
At a routine doctors appointment, a nurse had talked with me about my weight but warned me about diabetes if I didn't keep up with the weight loss. (Over the course of two years, I had already lost 50 pounds.) This really shook me up! And that was the pivotal point I needed to make even more changes to get healthier. So with the kick of reality, I decided to meet up with Cindy to get on the path that I really need to be on – I was ready for change!
I started working with her at the end of August 2016, she was still in school for health coaching and was willing to work with me. I agreed to help her with her assignments. Since I just had a full physical, I knew I was ready to go! Since she wasn’t a nutritionist, she suggested I meet with one to get the ground rules, which I did. Once that was out of the way, we started working together on a weekly basis.
She took the guidelines given by the nutritionist and together we made a plan that would work for me. From texting her from the grocery store, to being at an event with popcorn, she was there! She talked me off the ledge of eating stuff I knew wasn’t on the plan.
While helping her with her classes, she helped me with my food choices, importance of exercising and general support. Without her support, I wouldn’t be where I am today – 100 pounds lighter, more active and in much better health!
