Well, as many of you know, I have been doing Weight Watchers for about a year and have lost 52 pounds. I have FINALLY reached my goal weight and once I maintain that weight for 6 weeks, I will be considered a “lifetime member”–which basically means I’ve earned the privilege of not having to pay when I go to meetings (which, I might add, can be quite costly when you are slow at losing weight). Regardless…the bigger news is this…I am starting my own coaching business.
Again, lots of you know that I have always wanted to go into coaching and have my own business, AND, throughout this whole weight loss journey, I’ve discovered an avenue for that to happen. I have really become passionate about helping people not only lose weight, but do so with the intent to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the long haul. I have realized for myself that struggling with weight is not just about making changes in food choices, its about making changes inside as well. I don’t think I’m the only one for whom this is true, and I do think there are lots of people out there who could use support and encouragement with that part of the process…
After sharing my thoughts with my trainer at Moon Valley (who is also the fitness manager), she offered me the opportunity to begin my practice within the club. Starting now, I am contracting out my services to Moon Valley as the health and lifestyle coach for their members. I am so excited about this chance, and ask you all to say a little prayer that I don’t screw it up!! I am beginning the process of becoming legit, so if anybody has any ideas about a catchy name for my business, I would love to hear them. I’m stumped at this point!
Hope all of you are doing well! Trish and Lyric are coming for a visit this Saturday so stayed tuned for pictures of the girls!
