At the age of five, I formed a loving relationship with food. Food became my best friend, it listened, it didn’t argue, it never belittled me and was always there for me. As my relationship with food grew, so did I. I gained and gained and gained until I had finally had enough of being the fat kid. At the age of fifteen, I attended my first Weight Watchers meeting and over the following months, I learned how to eat. I lost 45 pounds during my eight months attending meetings and when I turned sixteen and got a license to drive, I drove through every drive-through in town, repeatedly. I quickly gained back all the weight I had lost and then some. After high school, I studied Theatre at a prominent conservatory in Los Angeles and after a year of battling my increasing waistline and other personal struggles, I returned to my home in West Palm Beach, Florida and tried to pick up the pieces of my life that just seemed to keep shattering around me.
For the next three years, I worked from job to job, trying to find my happiness. My weight continued to skyrocket and I had grown to over 300 pounds.
What I continued to find was absolute misery. I was morbidly obese and no one could help me, except me. At the age of 22, I returned to Weight Watchers and fully committed myself to gaining something different – mental strength and hardcore self-confidence. Over 18 months I lost 120 pounds, gained control of my life, understood how to eat and what food choices to make, and began spreading the word to others at WW about how to do it too by becoming one of their meeting leaders. Over a period of five years, I became very popular throughout Palm Beach County, achieved a Diamond Leader status with WW and most importantly, led thousands of people to shed hundreds of thousands of pounds.
I earned my Doctor of Metaphysical Science degree from the University of Sedona and I teach each student how to create an Ultimate Life. I work with people who lack identity, self-confidence, self-esteem, are overweight, morbidly obese, feel helpless, are not living with intention, etc., coaching them to acquire the Ultimate Life.
I know what it’s like to hate myself. I know what it’s like to be so depressed, you can’t get out of bed. I used to hate everyone else because they got to enjoy their lives while I was sentenced to the hell that was mine. That’s how used to think. I now understand how life works. I understand that the mental strength that I have guarantees my life endurance, reinforces my mental convictions and reaffirms my choices to be healthy as a whole person. I know what it’s like to stand in your shoes and I understand exactly how you feel. You can choose to work with whatever professional person for whatever reasons – but in the realm of bettering yourself, wouldn’t it be awesome to work with someone who can identify with you and your struggles, will never judge you, as well as being able to motivate and inspire you to achieve every goal you desire?
Stop living a life you hate and start living ULTIMATELY!
