Hey ya'll I'm Amanda. I am a Certified Health and Life Coach and a dedicated healer. In my spare time I love to hang out with my family, and am a lover of movies and music.
I am at my highest energy when I am making a difference in other peoples lives.
I have been in the administration branch of the health care field for twenty years, and have gained knowledge on a variety of medical conditions. I have always had a fascination with how the body works, and soaked up as much as I could in my A&P classes. It amazes me that all of our systems work in unison, even while we sleep.
My coaching focus is on connection of the mind and the body so that you are able to form habits that last, and are able to better connect with your emotions. This will lay the foundation for success in all other areas of your life!
Having been morbidly obese most of my life I didn’t realize how much food and my surroundings played a huge part in my being. I would eat whatever I wanted without thinking about the toll it was taking on my body. There were days where I would drink nothing but soda. I hated the way I looked in pictures and would rarely allow them to be taken of me. I love going to the movies and it became a struggle to fit in the theater seats – it was embarrassing. Buckling my seat belt in the car was another challenge. I was extremely unhappy with who I had become, and suffered for a long time with depression and anxiety.
All of the medical ailments I had due to my weight were starting to hinder my living. In August of 2014 I decided to start with a medically developed weight loss program to learn better ways of eating, and it helped to prepare me for what was to come. Seven months after I stopped that program I had the gastric sleeve procedure. I know first hand the lifestyle modifications that are required and the obstacles that are to come.
Along my journey, post bariatric surgery, I have suffered two miscarriages and was diagnosed with Postpartum depression (PPD). I know exactly how it feels to have things spiral out of control.
I made the decision to step back into my confidence, take back my leadership, slow down, breathe, and live my best life. I have a heightened awareness of my body and what it needs, and the world around me looks different.
Knowing what I do now is so amazing!
Weight to me is both mental and physical weight with both going hand in hand.
