How tall are you? 

I am 5'7

How did you get started?

Short Answer: I got honest with myself and others about the behaviors that were contributing to my obesity.

Long Answer: Subscribe to my newsletter for a a ‘Getting Started Guide' with more detailed information about how I changed my habits to support weight loss. If you would like a copy, please sign up for my newsletter.

How long did it take you to lose the weight?

You could say a lifetime – it's a never-ending process. I started losing weight without dieting in July 2012 and I continue to lose weight.

What diet plan do you follow?

My diet is personalized based on gradual change over several years. I eat real food and cook at home as often as possible. Over time, I was able to eliminate sugar, artificial sweeteners, and processed foods. My diet resembles a combination of Paleo, Whole 30, and Keto. In August 2015, I came to believe I was addicted to carbohydrates and eliminated most forms of carbs from my diet. This had a profound effect on how I thought about food and eliminated the mental obsession. I make an effort to eat green vegetables at every meal and source the highest quality meats I can find.

Do you offer one-on-one coaching?

I have very limited availability for personal coaching. I only work with people who I believe are 100% committed to changing their lives long term. We work closely together on permanent behavior change by building new habits. If you are interested, please contact me for a free consultation to determine if working together would be a good fit.

Can I ask you another question?

Yes, please do! Feel free to ask any other questions in the comments below or through my contact form.


  1. Can I ask how you feel about protein shakes or any type of shake for that matter? Is this something you utilized? I’ve struggled with weight all of my life and can’t seem to get a handle on it. So I’m really hoping to make a turnaround!


    1. I personally prefer real food to protein powders, so I don’t drink shakes. Shakes also make me think “diet” which I avoid at all costs.

  2. Hello,

    Congrats by the way, I’ve been living the struggle since I was 15.5 and I’m 45. I think about food probably more than half of my day. Either thinking about what healthy food I should eat or what I’m craving or criticizing myself after a binge, or before I binge the constant back and forth of trying to stop myself.

    1. Hi Jenn, Welcome 🙂 I am sorry to hear that you’ve been struggling with this for so many years. I think the heart of the issue is learning to love and care for ourselves, which can feel almost impossible when we are unhappy and uncomfortable in our bodies. I am launching a new community initiative called #SelfCareProject and I hope you will join.

  3. Hi, I noticed from your pictures that you do not have excess skin. Why is that? I have a lot of weight to lose too and I know I will probably end up with some. I am 52 years old. You look great..firm:)
