My name is Denise and I have been working with Melissa for the past few months. She has not only motivated me but helped me get from 347lbs to my current weight of 252lbs and we are still working towards my goal of losing another 70-80 lbs. She helped me learn to eat the right TYPES of foods and some of the why`s this is important and we would take on some good hiking trips with a lot of hills. I really can`t say that I am on a `diet`. I have learned that eating MORE food, of the right types, can actually make you lose weight instead of eating so little before. I would say that from the tools she gave me I can lose the remaining weight. By just eating the proper food, moving my body a little more frequently and pushing out of my comfort zone with her guidance and support I can do wonders! I`ve been trying all kinds of different diets and fads and I just couldn`t seem to lose. I had so many excuses why I couldn’t lose the weight or push myself with exercise but she taught that I CAN push myself, that these things are just excuses and not real and that I AM worth it. I can honestly say that this process and losing all of this weigh makes me feel like I can do anything. I have changed a lot of my bad habits into good habits and will keep working on this for the rest of my life. Before I started working with her I couldn`t even walk up the second floor where I live without stopping 2 or 3 times to catch my breath. Now that I have lost this weight I can not only walk up the flight of stairs, I can do it 2 or 3 times now! I now feel more positive about myself mentally as well as physically and I really do thank Melissa for helping me and guiding me on this journey.

I just wanted to say this in regards to anyone`s transformation be it physical, mental, or otherwise. It is YOU the person making the changes that is doing the hard work. For the most part, the people who help you are ONLY the facilitators or that punch in the face aka reality check or motivation you may need to help you. You are the one doing the real hard work, OWN that, be proud of that and use that to keep your confidence soaring in the direction of more positive outcomes 🙂 Be well!
