While in search of a solution to my own health issues, I became a Certified Health Coach.
Here’s my story:
Most of my young adult life, I was a yo-yo dieter. At that time, it was easier for me to lose weight and honestly, I was more concerned about how I looked in my clothes than about being healthy. As I got older, it became more difficult to lose weight and my body started to change inside and out. Years of poor lifestyle choices had finally caught up with me. I found myself overweight and pre-diabetic.
My fear of developing diabetes motivated me to learn all that I could about pre-diabetes and how to prevent diabetes. I was looking for scientifically proven strategies to improve my health. In my search for a solution, I discovered the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute and its balanced approach to wellness that focuses on Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition or L.E.A.N.
My career as an educator for over twenty years, and being passionate about learning and teaching, made it an easy transition for me to become a Dr. Sears Certified Health Coach.
As an educator, I know that knowledge is power. By sharing the life-changing tools and information that I use to help me achieve better health, I will empower my family, friends, others in my community and beyond to take charge of their health.
The most significant lifestyle change I could have made was to Go L.E.A.N. By simply making small lifestyle changes, I was able to gain control of my body and renew my health.
I want others to know that small lifestyle changes can pay off big time, and the more healthy changes you make to your life, the more years you add to your life. I want to inspire and motivate anyone who will listen to choose a healthier lifestyle and Go L.E.A.N.
I am so excited about the second half of my life, and you can be, too!
Let me show you how!
