Client challenge - lose weight, eat better and maintain good physical health
Working with Jody for the past 45 weeks has been very enjoyable. Not only was I able to lose weight, but Jody taught me how to maintain my weight with a healthy eating style. The most surprising parts was finding out how to eat for seasonal allergies and migraines. I was also surprised at the large amount of food I should be eating to maintain my body with my active lifestyle. Along with the weight loss of 24 lbs I also lost 5 inches in the waist. I am no longer on blood pressure medication. I have very little allergy problems and have been migraine free for over 6 months.
Client challenge- lose weight
Working with Jody has been both educational and inspirational. Jody helped me to understand why my previous efforts to lose weight had been ineffective and why eating more food actually helped me lose weight, rather than my idea of eating less. I had been reducing the quantity of food I was consuming in my efforts to lose weight and didn't think I could possibly eat as much as Jody recommended, but now that I'm consuming more and weighing less I am a firm believer . I love to cook and thought that I always prepared healthy meals but discovered that I was consuming a lot more fat and carbs than I realized so with Jody's 3 meal a day tracking method I now plan my meals for the day. I realized that I was not getting enough exercise so now I've added a walk on the days that I don't play tennis or pickle ball. It doesn't take much time and my tennis and pickle ball are better for it. Losing 10 pounds was huge for me and you can actually feel it in how you move on the court and of course how much better your clothes fit and look. Jody taught me information that was important for me as I age and want to stay fit and healthy. I plan to stick with this program of tracking my meals for a long time.

As a health coach Jody handles you very professionally with a personal touch. She listens to you and digs deep. Jody seriously wants you to succeed and works very hard to help you get there. When you do get there, she makes sure the band comes out and plays. She practices what she preaches and one day I hope to learn more from her as a personal trainer as well. The biggest surprise during my 24 weeks of working with Jody was the impact this experience had on me mentally. I am down 4 inches in my waist and a little over 20 lbs lost.
