Rich and I made a conscious decision to take the opportunity during the “Stay at Home” order at the beginning of the COVID crisis and take charge of our health. Not just to lose weight but to truly gain control of our health and well-being. Maria’s approach of creating a healthy lifestyle vs. “just losing weight” truly resonated with both of us. Fast forward 4 months later, with Maria’s guidance and coaching, together we lost over 70 pounds but more importantly, we gained more energy, reduced our inflammation, improved our sleep, cleaned our clothes closets (in other words we got rid of our safety nets) and it has been life changing. The biggest win, Rich was able to eliminate ALL cholesterol and blood pressure medication, a major accomplishment! We both finally realized that the key to healthy weight management was to change our habits and behaviors and stop treating it like a diet destination. Maria helped us identify our unhealthy habits and replace them with new healthy ones. Today, we continue to maintain and live a healthy lifestyle. Because of the tools Maria has provided us, we manage our weight in a much healthier way. Shortly after we reached our goal, we celebrated our 1-year Wedding Anniversary. Looking back on our Wedding Day, we can’t believe how much better we look and feel. It’s truly been life changing. We could not be happier and look forward to a healthy future! Thank you, Maria for helping us gain back our health.
