When I first started working with Misty at the end of August 2010 I weighed 359 pounds, the most I’ve ever weighed in my life. I was extremely overweight and felt the worst I ever had. I had very high blood pressure, no energy and was very depressed. After a trip to the emergency room, I realized that I had to make changes in my life. When I started working with Misty, one of the first things she asked me to do was dream big about how I wanted my life to be in a year from our start date. That in of itself was hard to do because I couldn't even fathom it being a possibility. I trusted Misty as my coach and we worked together to create a vision. Besides the weight-loss goal, my vision statement included my wellbeing and happiness. We worked together every week setting goals for me to accomplish my ultimate vision. During our weekly sessions we worked on the challenges that came up for me and set realistic goals for the upcoming week. These weekly sessions were truly beneficial because they not only created accountability on my part, but they propelled me forward in my quest for wellness. It’s been a year and four months since I started working with Misty, and in that time I’ve lost 126lbs - exceeding my original weight loss goal! I now eat healthy regularly and exercise multiple times a week. I am still working with Misty and working on losing another 35lbs. This year I want to run a marathon and change some additional habits. The experience I’ve had with Misty is more than words can express. What she has helped me to accomplish is beyond what I ever thought was possible. She helped me change my life and gave me the tools to keep making positive changes for the future.
