Let me start off by saying that I lived to eat. I spent most of my life overweight and out of shape. A lot of that came from emotional eating as well as severely unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise. Whether it was eating a whole pizza by myself or a family sized order of Chinese food, it was gone in one sitting. Add on top of that 20 years of smocking I was a ticking time bomb.
It came to a point where it was severely starting to affect my health. From knee pain to chest pain to acid reflux. I had it all.
I needed help but didn’t know where to even begin. That was the time when Alex told me about her lifestyle coaching and the keto diet.
I was desperate to try anything to change my life around at 310 pounds and 36 years of age. Although I agreed to go on this journey, she had her work cut out for her. I was set in my ways and a bit on the stubborn side. However she wasn’t having any of that.
She not only created a program for me that was easy to follow but also cooked my meals. Granted while at work I could easily cheat but I couldn’t bring myself to do it because I didn’t want to disappoint her and fail myself.
There were some bad days where I wanted to give up but Alex wouldn’t let me, she would check in on me daily to make sure I was doing ok and she was always there if i needed to talk through something or needed guidance day or night.
In a fairly short period of time I started noticing results, the weight started to come off. It was only then where I completely dedicated myself to this diet because for the first time ever….something actually worked.
I became addicted, in approximately 8 months I lost 70 pounds, I was a completely different person. I had no more headaches, no more heartburn, my blood pressure was normal and I was no longer borderline diabetic!….. This woman not only saved my life but added years to it.
This wasn’t just about the weight, my whole life changed. I was no longer angry and depressed. I walked with my head high and my chest out.
Everything I have accomplished in the last year I owe to Alex. She single handedly gave me a new lease on life!
