What is a Health Coach?

Health Coaches partner with clients seeking self-directed, lasting changes, aligned with their values. This promotes health, wellness, and well-being. In the course of their work, health coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients and a belief in their capacity for change, honoring that each client is an expert in their life, while ensuring that all interactions are respectful and non-judgmental.

Background
In 2014, I was considered clinically obese and my doctor told me for the first time in my life I had high cholesterol, high triglycerides, was pre-diabetic, and had a fatty liver. I was also not sleeping well, started having a lot of migraines headaches, and was stressed out! I knew my diet was to blame. I was also asked in front of a group of co-workers when I was due, but I was not pregnant!

In December 2014, I started my weight loss journey and by May 2015, I had lost 42 pounds! All my blood work is now normal and I no longer suffer from migraines or feel stressed out due to lack of sleep. I take no medication. This was by far the easiest, healthiest diet I had ever done (and I've done them all)! I was not hungry and had a lot of energy.

I opened The Diet Center Weight Loss Done Right to help others lose weight and teach them how to keep it off!

Kelly

Certified Health Coach

My Wellness journey began in the fall of 1997 as the mother of two kids under 3. While on vacation, my 49 year loved one had a stroke while we were dining, and then another (or more) on our flight home. After the reality of balancing the care for my loved one and the needs of my growing family, I committed to a change of my health so I could change my life. My determination was (and is) to enjoy a long, healthy life with, and for, my family.
In 2015, I committed to become a Certified Health Coach and share the wealth of health with you!

Weight Loss Coach

After turning 40 years old and not liking what I saw in the mirror and struggling to feel comfortable in my clothes, I was 110 lbs. overweight, I began to fear for my life. It's been almost 3 years since my weight loss journey began and I have managed to keep off the weight. It's a different lifestyle - one that now includes healthy eating habits as well as physical activity. I now surround myself with positive/supportive people, places, and things to continue a more fulfilling healthy lifestyle. I am super passionate to encouraging and offer any help to others who may want to reach their weight loss goals. Come join our awesome community and let this amazing journey begin!!
