Even though Lisa has an impressive record in healthcare she herself battled with being an overweight RN who felt awful when she tried to help her patients on their healthy journey. She felt like a fraud. “I was teaching health, but I didn’t even know HOW to live it myself!” says Lisa.
The story changes in 2019. At 300 pounds Lisa was ready for a change. She was an executive in IT traveling all over the world for 10 years. Lisa was at the end of her rope.
In her own words, “I was falling apart physically. I was not on RX medication and was active with my dogs on the weekend, but my knee was a mess and it turned out it was 100% from my weight and my daily diet. I took daily handfuls of over the counter the pain meds daily! I could not stand or sit for extended periods of time without being in extreme pain and yet I couldn’t walk far because of my knee. Laying down was my most comfortable position. I was afraid I would not be able to walk in another few years or another few pounds. Yes, I was afraid of being immobile at 53 years old. I knew there was another way!"
In September of 2019, Lisa turned her life around. It started with tracking calories and walking around the block. Lisa focused on hunger and calories together. Lisa also focused on adding healthy habits back into her life like journaling, prayer, she established a routine. Lisa lost -100 pounds in the first 8 months.
For over 20 years Lisa studied for hours about weight loss and nutrition. Like many others, Lisa tried everything from a lap band, the hot dog diet, shakes, pills and any lotions and potions she could find. Her appetite seemed endless. Lisa knew it was mental really but had a tough time putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. While she lost 130 pounds in 13 months, Lisa modified the program to fit her lifestyle, personality, food choices and future health goals.
She put up a Facebook page and started sharing TIPS about the mental game of changing daily habits and adding healthier habits. It caught on! Lisa has now helped thousands of women lose weight and has a team of doctors who support her commonsense approach to a healthier lifestyle.
