"I just realized - I'm sitting in the exact same spot I was 6 months ago - waiting for an appointment...crying....when I messaged Derek to help me! He gave me your number. It took a little look back and realized just how MUCH I have changed!! That is because he sent me to you :) thank you for helping me be who I am!!!!"
Crystal is a mother of two. Unfortunately her support system is a few hours away. Daycare in the gyms are pricey and couldn't accommodate her schedule. Crystal came to me in August. The first two times I met with her, she was on the brink of tears. Telling me her story her eyes were watery and red. She felt lost. Looking back at her in the mirror was not the carefree fun loving slim woman who stood there 7 years ago. Instead stood an overweight, depressed mom who lost all sense of her identity.
I have come to know Crystal very well and by her third session, she was happy and excited. After two weeks she was able to climb in the back of her suzuki swift to get the car seat out and not get stuck. She gained more agility, confidence, strength....she even began wearing make up again.
Seeing the change in her, her husband started taking the kids more. The more she re-introduced herself...to herself, the more her family also got out her. She began to play with the kids more, more energy, cleaner house, home cooked meals and well I think you get the point.
One of the most common statements, I didn't know how to eat. My tip of advice, when starting out, keep it simple. Eat the same thing for breakfast everyday, prep the same food. Until your able to pick out clean food, follow a diet plan and keep it simple!
