Wendy's Wellness and Weight Loss Story:
Here are Wendy's before/after pictures when she lost 33 pounds.
My health challenges started for me in 8th grade when I had bacterial meningitis 3x, severe enough to put me in a coma the second time. Luckily, I survived. Afterwards, I needed to take antibiotics for 10 years, as a preventative measure. This led me down a path of new unexpected health issues such as Epstein Barr virus, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Candida.
In 1990, luckily, I met 2 women who taught me how to heal myself with a healthy diet and strategic supplements. In the years following years to come, I continued to apply this knowledge and learn whatever else I needed to learn to continue improve my health.
In 2010, after raising my young children, I was motivated to find a way to take my knowledge and help others, so I became a Certified Integrative Health Coach. This was the magical answer! I found great joy in helping clients get well by teaching them the significance of a healthy diet and lifestyle that was specifically for them. I focused on the importance of prioritizing themselves and focus on how be fulfilled with their life even more so than food.
In 2014, I found myself challenged with my own weight issues and was baffled because I always "thought" I was eating well, but since we are all bio-unique I had no idea that what I thought was working for me, wasn't.
By the end of 2014, I was lucky enough to find a wellness and weight loss program that resonated with me. It was all natural, healthy, doable, and best of all successful. I lost 33 pounds in about 50 days. Before my program was close to completion, I found myself training to be a health coach in the office that changed everything for me. This was the start of the next 3+ years, where I became their head health coach and was able to take over 300 clients successfully through the program.
The one most important thing I learned about my journey is that it isn't just about the weight. It is about living a fulfilling life and finding what works for you. It is about being compassionate and curious with yourself. It is about becoming the best version of self so you can truly strive while your are alive, be happy and healthy and fulfill the passions you have for yourself with ease.
You will know it the minute you meet me, I am passionate about what we do for RWWL. I hope together we can find what drives you to be, feel and look your very best too.
