I have struggled with my weight and making healthy choices for much of my adult life. Several years ago I overcame a candida albicans overgrowth through a challenging--but simple--diet adjustment and lost about 50 pounds! I felt better than I could ever remember. I thought to myself, “I wish there was a way that I could help other people feel this way, too!”
Flash forward to a severe poison ivy infection and subsequent steroid prescription. Candida overgrowth back stronger than ever. Instant weight gain. Attempts to reverse failed. Flash forward a little further to multiple fertility treatments and the requisite hormone regimens. More candida taking over my body. More weight gained. More self-esteem lost. And more attempts to get healthy failed.
Now flash to this summer, when I decided that enough was enough and the only gift I wanted for my 39th birthday was to take back my health and reclaim my body. For good. I learned through the last few years that I cannot do this on my own--I need support from like-minded people. I remembered seeing the amazing results that my friend (and now coach) Leslie had attained through her own journey with the Beachbody programs, so I ordered my own. And joined the Beachbody community for support. And--most surprisingly--decided that perhaps I too could be a coach and fulfill that wish I had had way back when I was healthy. But do it WHILE on my own journey back to health!
And now I know for sure--that support is key. And one of the best ways to get and give support is to be a part of an online challenge group. You are much more likely to get off your couch and do a workout, or choose nutritious foods, if you know your group-mates are expecting to hear from you about it. You are more likely to shake off the setbacks and try, try again if you have people around you cheering you on.
I invite you to join me to take the first step in making a change in your life--for good. Together we'll choose the right program for you. And through a small, private online group we’ll eat nutritiously, share ways to be active, and be supported in our own journeys toward health. Together we WILL achieve our goals!
If you’re ready to really start living your life to your fullest potential, get in touch with me! Let’s do this together!
Hi! I'm Lyn and this is where I blog about family, health, workouts, nutrition, meditation, relaxation & life in general. But it's not all about me--it's about inspiring healthy changes in other people's lives.
