“Hi, I am Melissa I started my journey with my health coach Anna in the Marc’s check out counter. I noticed that someone was buying lots of veggies as I was. That struck up a very happy, quick talk consisting of business card exchanges.
I decided that I needed a person to guide me through this good mess of a change with my body. Notice I said, “good mess”. Anna helped me realize one thing…..( many in fact) I deserve to love myself no matter what.
I had started my weight loss journey in 2005. I was at my worst weight with many health issues….high BP, skin issues, depression, anxiety, hormonal issues etc…the list was endless. I had changed my ways of eating losing weight 80lbs at that time. I did a very big lifestyle change with food and exercise. But something still seemed missing….I had committed to health, but my “whole” self was not committed. I have kept the weight of all but like 15lbs…..But where Anna came in to save me from the destruction of my inner “whole” self. She helped me learn what triggers my eating habits, my depressive thoughts, hormonal changes, my thinking of myself (good or bad), and how to fix it and not torture myself anymore with how these things effect me but love youself mind, body, and spirit. Thank you, Anna, for going through my journey with me.”
“…has helped me through my health journey.”
“Prior to connecting with Anna I was unhappy with my weight, with body pains, and had a lot less positive mindset. At the age of 60, I decided it was time to take control of my own life. Working with Anna has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. She has taught me the importance of breakfast and different types of exercise.
Anna coached me how to read and understand food labels, and the awareness of how much sugar I was consuming daily.
Due to my total knee replacement, I felt limited on what exercises my body could do. However, with Anna I experimented with several types of movement that felt comfortable to me. What I truly learned through my time with Anna, foods absolutely can cause inflammation and pain but also heal the pain. Along with having less pain, losing ten plus pounds; the nutrition awareness and deep breathing has helped me through my health journey. Thank you, Anna for everything you have taught me!” –Kathy
“Knowledge isn’t power unless it’s applied.”
“If you’re really looking for someone who has your overall wellness in mind, Anna is the best match for you. I have had quite a few health problems in the past few years, including high blood pressure. I wanted to get away from the medication because it made me very sick in the process. With Anna’s guidance and extensive knowledge, I haven’t had to take blood pressure medication in months. She took the time to sit down and go over certain foods, and vitamins that would help lower my blood pressure naturally and developed a plan that I was able to stick with. She is always supportive, and very friendly. Highly recommended!” – Alicia
