In my early 50’s, I was working as a team-lead in a busy office, raising two teenagers, caring for a mother with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, 80 pounds overweight, suffering from insomnia, and angry with everything and everyone.
When my boss told me he’d received complaints about my behaviour, I broke down. On my way home, I came within seconds of deliberately driving my car into a humongous willow tree.
That night was the turning point in my life.
I started with my physical health. Working with my diet and a personal trainer, I went from 240 to 162 pounds in a year. I changed my realationships, ending a loveless marriage of 24 years, and began coaching other women on how to transform their lives.
Along the way, I witnessed repeatedly the pivotal role mindset and beliefs play in the quality of your life.
In my early 50’s, I felt like I wasn’t being seen and heard and wanted everyone to change around me.
Today, as a certified transformation mindset coach, trainer and facilitator, I help women in with multi-generational families get the internal support they need so they can feel in control and at peace with themselves and their life despite the chaos around them.
If you are ready to stop living a life you never wanted and start creating the one you do want, book a complimentary consultation.
Think it. Change it. Live it.
At age 58, I went from 240 lbs to 162 lbs.
At age 59, I left my loveless 24 year marriage.
At age 60, I took my kids to Hungary to celebrate.
In 2018, at age 60, I entered a beach body competition, visited relatives in Budapest with my teenage kids.
I am now here before you a transformed, passionate, inspired old woman.
So what do YOU need to change in your life that is not working?
Maybe it’s a relationship, a job that doesn’t fulfill you, a business that keeps starting and stopping to generate revenue, maybe it’s an issue with weight or fitness or maybe you are feeling like life isn’t unfolding as it should.
The hardest thing ever is to make a change – because no matter how painful your circumstances are, your current state is familiar. Familiar is safe and secure.
Change represents stepping into the unknown – and the unknown is scary. Scary is not safe.
I am here to tell you that change IS possible, even though it’s scary. Once you start building strength from the inside out, you begin to see the possibilities of how life can be fulfilling.
There was a time when I thought I wanted to end my life. Now I realize that this was the beginning of my transformation.
Changing from the inside out saved my life. It might just save your life too!
