About Me

I am just like you. I want to be healthy, happy, and full of life. But life happens and without noticing, we get affected.

I got busy. I got involved in raising my kids. I turned my focus to others because they needed my care. I forgot no one was caring for me, not even myself.

Suddenly, I found myself too tired, too afraid, too lost… and I got sick. I looked at that person looking at me in the mirror and I asked her: What happened to you? How did you let us get here? Where is that vibrant person you used to be? It struck me, I needed to do something.

It was then that I realized something was really off with me. I had gained weight, I was puffed up, I had heartburn and indigestion, my body ached, and I was exhausted all the time. I was pre-diabetic, but all my other tests were still “normal”.

I went to a few doctors, and they just told me I was getting older, needed to change my diet, and exercise more. I was pre-diabetic, highly depressed, 40 pounds overweight, having daily arrhythmic heart palpitations and panic attacks. The kicker was that I have always been a healthy eater. I just didn’t know that the food I ate was not healthy for my body.

The first phase of my transformation came when I realized I was angry, disappointed, desperate, and feeling lost. If they did not know what was wrong with me, I would find out. I had been looking for an answer for three years. Then, in 2017, came the second phase. I decided to take charge of my health. I researched, I studied, and I found my answers. I became a Health Coach. I learned that my thyroid was not normal and that I had an auto-immune condition. I learned that I had to make big changes in my diet, lifestyle, exercise routine, you name it. I decided to embark on this new journey. The lonely journey of bettering myself. I made the changes I needed in my life and lifestyle. I worked alongside my doctors towards improving my health, sometimes even educating them. I lost the weight, I became pain free, and started to feel good again.

Today, I no longer have those symptoms. I am no longer pre-diabetic, and my markers are normal. I lost 35 lbs. I sleep well, depression is long gone, heart works as it should, and I no longer have panic attacks.

In a sense, I did it alone; but you don’t have to.

Was it hard? You bet it was, but the struggle was not over. I still had a lot to learn from what I call: The Third Phase. How to persevere? How to keep on going? How can I not give up? How to make all that I have learned “me”. It was a whole new journey where I had to learn all that stopped me from reaching my goals. I faltered and got back on it. Each time I faltered; I learned some more. It was also then that I realized that there is this entire world of life experiences, traumas, fears that show their ugly faces when we are making changes. So, I worked on that side of myself as well.

It was my experience that made me decided to learn how to help others like you. How do you keep it up? How do you make them a part of you, and then YOU?
