What’s a Health Coach?
If you think about food constantly and don’t know why, you’ve come to the right place.
For over 16 years I struggled with my weight and always thought it was lack of self-control. Over 10 years ago I lost 60 pounds (27 kgs) and have kept it off since. I’m now here to help others on their journey.
