My Story

I was a 38-year-old mother of two who found herself struggling to get out of bed every day. I was sleeping all the time, and not well. I never felt rested. I felt like the simplest of tasks were difficult. Looking in the mirror I was horrified. I didn’t recognize myself anymore. I was 80 pounds overweight, my hair was always knotted up on my head, and the worst thing was I didn’t care anymore. I had tried everything imaginable to lose the weight and it just wouldn’t budge. At one point I was cycling over 100 miles a week and still couldn’t manage to get rid of more than a couple of pounds. I found myself treading water and barely staying afloat. My problem wasn’t that I didn’t eat well or ate too much and did too little. My problem was that I was on medication that made me predisposed to gaining weight. When I first started taking it, I put on 30 pounds faster than I could blink an eye. The upside? I was pain free for the first time in 3 years. As the pounds packed on, I began to wonder was the weight a good trade off? Was my life really that much better than it was before? For a while I felt like it was. That perhaps given time I would come to accept the weight and maybe even embrace it. Five years later I had done neither. I hated the way I looked, the way I felt both physically and emotionally, and how far my mental health had deteriorated.

It was impacting everything. I didn’t want to go out in public because I was embarrassed and felt I was an embarrassment to my husband and children. It affected my relationship with my husband and with my kids. Not to mention my bloodwork started showing some alarming signs of just how bad a state my body was in. I was pre-diabetic, my LDLs were high, my HDLs were low, and I didn’t have enough iron. It was really an overall downward spiral I was on. I was poised to lose everything because I was stuck.

The scariest part? I didn’t know how to get unstuck. I didn’t have the foggiest idea of how I was going to improve myself. I knew that it was more than just my weight that I had to change. I knew I had to start taking care of myself in order to care for those around me and that none of it was going to be easy.

I began doing research into wellness and diets that were proven to be successful. I read page after page and still I was lost and confused. Until one day something clicked. I had to take one step. Just one. Best of all it didn’t have to be a big one. I simply had to begin. That was the day I started keto. Granted, I had read a lot about it, I knew what not to eat, but I hadn’t done any real planning. But I stuck to it and I got better at it every day.

I decided that I was going to take the mystery out of understanding Ketosis and the Keto Diet Program. After countless hours of research, I discovered plenty of information available online and in magazines; however, it wasn’t in an easy to understand or clear format. That’s when I decided to develop a program to help myself and others to clearly understand the metrics behind Ketosis and adding an overall wellness program. When I found tools and resources to enhance my experience and my results, amazing things started to happen for me. I had finally learned how to look at my overall wellness from the perspective of retraining my brain to think about my Hydration, Nutrition, Supplements, and Sleep. These are the primary cornerstones to your health and wellness. Knowing how to unlock your body’s natural ability to regenerate and allow the healing process is one of the most powerful tools you can have. 

I am still on my journey. One day at a time. I have come so far and I’m eager to aid you in your journey.

Let today be the day. Just one step. Evolve.
