I’d gained 30 pounds over the last 7 years and the birth of my 3 children. I still looked pregnant, didn’t have a good body image and felt self-conscious. I’d also adopted some bad eating habits and while I lost a little weight on my own, some of it had quickly come back. With Lindsey’s help and accountability, I lost 14 pounds in the first 10 weeks! Having Lindsey introduce small changes each week over time really added up and made it much more manageable. My eating habits have improved, including cutting out evening snacks and alcohol, eating more slowing, having a healthy breakfast, and cutting out added sugars (except for special occasions) and I feel confident I can keep up the changes we’ve made. My belly fat has gone down, I have so much more energy and am crawling around and playing more with my kids, I feel much better in the mornings and I can wear old outfits I had grown out of. I also feel like I’ve developed a much more mindful life: I feel calmer, have more patience with my family and am less reactive now. I started out a little skeptical that this would work, but I’ve really appreciated this journey with Lindsey.
I came to Lindsey for health coaching when my weight and body fat percentages began steadily creeping up. At age 43, I wanted to take charge of the increased fat around my waist – despite going to the gym and a decent diet (so I thought). We started by setting goals and Lindsey led me through a gradual reduction in both added and natural sugars in my diet over the first several weeks. Through her education, I learned of the hidden sugars in my diet. We addressed weekly topics and included discussions regarding what and how I ate, my exercise regimen, and stress management. After our 10th weekly video call, I had my measurements taken during a personal training session. My weight decreased by 10 pounds, and my body fat percentage dropped from 25.3% to 22.7%. My clothes fit much better! The best part is my comfort level in knowing how to maintain the changes we’ve made. I have very much appreciated Lindsey’s patience and diligence in sticking with me no matter my mood or whether I followed through on all her advice. She pursued solutions to my challenges with me, persisting until we found something that worked. My decision to retain Lindsey and dedicate myself to her guidance proved to be a very good one. Thank you Lindsey!
I was about 2 months out before my wedding day. I was struggling with body image issues and cycling between binge eating and starving myself. I initially met Lindsey through a small group but very quickly was met with the passion she had for health coaching. After we decided for her to be my health coach I was able to walk with her week by week and discuss the different aspects of not just eating right and exercising but going through the mental spaces I’m in when I’m choosing what I eat and what I do with my time. Lindsey changed not only my weight (I felt great for my wedding day) but my relationship with food and the way I felt about my body. I highly recommend just a conversation to start, to see if this works for you!
When I started working with Lindsey, I was struggling with not having a regular fitness routine, feeling overweight and not happy with my appearance, not cooking very much and often making poor food choices. I wasn’t making or following through on goals for my health.
Since working with Lindsey, I have established a regular exercise routine and I feel so much more strong and energetic and have a much more positive outlook. I see my energy and positive outlook building so that I feel like I can accomplish what I want in the future. I’ve dropped a few pounds and look forward to losing more, but my negative body self-image has become such a small issue, and I’m confident that my weight issue will take care of itself over time. I’m cooking at home more, I have much better awareness of how much I’m eating and my physical sensations of hunger and fullness, and feel like I have a safety net of good habits where before I was kind of flailing around. Lindsey’s holistic and mindful approach to eating, exercise and healthy living hit all the right buttons for me and I highly recommend her as a health coach!
When I first met Lindsey, I was under lots of personal and family stress. I was suffering from the side effects of my antidepressant treatment, slowly putting on weight and unable to get rid of chronic constipation. I needed some advice and took the opportunity to do something for myself.
Lindsey was patient and sweet. She listened to me, helped me realize which decisions could be made and deal with things one by one. Food, exercise, pain, balance, motivations… We went methodically through every aspect of my health. It was very important on a personal level but I also wanted to take better care of my family. She gave me ideas and recipes. I learned to make better choices in grocery shopping and meal planning (for the whole family, and so far nobody complains).
I slowly but regularly lost weight, building better habits and observing the results. I lost over 6 pounds and I feel ready to keep up the good work. I’m thankful for Lindsey’s help. It’s so good to have someone you trust and to receive personalized advice!
When I started working with Lindsey, I was extremely skeptical that she could do anything to help me but thought, “what do I have to lose?” It has been a true emotional journey. What I appreciated most was her realistic approach to everyday life circumstances and situations and the persistent and consistent accountability she provided. On the outside I appeared to “have it all together,” super fit, single mom raising 2 grown boys, a very active social life, and great job. But inside I was feeling depressed and lonely and lost. Lindsey helped me to focus on 1 or 2 goals at a time, and as I started to see myself succeeding in those things I was motivated to set myself up to achieve goals in other areas of my life. For me life just seemed to keep getting in the way of me reaching my goals. Lindsey was always there, every week to help me recognize and celebrate the wins and have a new approach to overcoming the challenges. I continue to work with Lindsey. It is extremely important to have an accountability partner who is not going to just tell me what you want to hear but remind me of who I want to be, and she helps me to take the big and small steps to get me closer to my ultimate goals. Thank you, Lindsey. You are amazing.
