Our mission Is to improve lives by teaching concepts of self- improvement, self-empowerment, and the importance of investing in overall wellness.
Perseverance Health & Wellness Coaching is dedicated to promoting wellness through Mind, Body, and Spirit for an overall better quality of life through nutrition.
We are not here to give you a cookie-cutter diet to follow, telling you only to cut and burn calories. Beginning a new lifestyle and wanting to conquer something like weight-loss, means so much more than that. We want to help you truly change, and be successful at it.
What Does This Mean?
Our physical health is partly determined by our mental health. Even conventional doctors act as therapist now, asking us about stress and turmoil in our lives when we see them for our physical conditions.
There is proven scientific studies that assess the connection with physical, spiritual, and emotional wellness with diseases, such as heart disease, cancers, and other negative health diagnoses.
Psychiatry and counseling can give direction on how to create individualized plans by identifying what are the root causes influencing unhealthy food habits, obesity, and negative health outcomes. Clients battle emotional eating, stress eating, or eating excessively to self-sooth themselves.
Our goal is to help identify the why behind of negative eating behaviors. The relationship between our mental, physical, and spiritual/emotional and eating well being can influence what we eat and how we eat.
For years I was a yo -yo dieter unable to identify why I could not get past the hump of losing and regaining weight. I knew what types of food to eat that would get the weight off even before I became a dietitian,but I would not master the why behind my eating behaviors. In 2009, after the losing my husband to congestive heart failure, my goal was to stop the roller coaster of starting and stopping my attempts to shed weight. I was over 300 pounds, and I wanted to lose weight FOR REAL this time, which meant not focusing on losing weight as much as making real changes for a better lifestyle.
I read so many books about change, and I even watched success stories on people who made it to the other side of my journey. The topic of emotional eating really resonated with me. So, I began paying attention to when I ate, and why I ate. And my truth became quite clear. Not only did I eat when I was afraid, I ate when I was happy, sad, anxious, angry, and every other emotion associated with life events. The journey to my successful weight loss journey began with removing the weight in bondage that influenced my weight gain in pounds. Once I dealt with my emotional pounds, physical pounds became easier to remove, and to keep off. I still have my moments, but changing my lifestyle meant taking control of my emotional eating. I was my first client on my journey of understanding the why behind negative eating behaviors.
As my journey unfolded, I received my dietetics degree with an an emphasis on psychology, to use both concepts to help others break through the barriers of weight issues. The correlation between mind, body and spirit is the foundation of the tools I use to help my clients successfully reach their goals.
Perseverance Health & Wellness Coaching is designed to help our clients break through "yo-yo" dieting and negative eating behaviors for long term weight management.
