Weight Loss Coaching Program
What if there really was a magic pill you could take for lasting weight loss? BUT, What if you had to take that pill every day for 6 months before it would take effect. Then when it did take effect, the effects would last potentially a life time. Would you still want to sign up for that pill even though it would take time to work?
If you said no, then ask yourself, are you just wanting a quick fix, and don't really care about your health and consequences? Is Weight Loss all that matters?
If you you said yes, then I have some bad and good news for you.
The bad news - there is no magic pill. The good news is you can retrain your brain, and it will have the same effect as the magic pill described above.
Retraining your brain does take some effort and time, but the results are long lasting.
This coaching program is largely weight loss psychology based and has a lot of Cognitive Behaviour exercises. After all, we know we should eat more fruits and vegetables, but we just are not doing it. This is where all the magic happens - in recognizing, understanding and changing our behaviors.
How Does This Weight Loss Coaching Program Work?
This Weight Loss Coaching Program is for those who are committed to the process of changing their brains, so that weight loss becomes easier, (possibly even effortless).
This work we do together can be challenging. It is for those who are ready to do the steps needed to achieve their goals, rather than trying to skip to the end result, and in turn, not have it last.
We work together, step by step, building a solid foundation before building up to the next level. The saying 'slow and steady wins the race' here, would be accurate. I know that those who are signing up for the lose 30 lbs in 30 days type programs, may lose weight, but they also gain back the weight with a vengeance. With the quick fix programs, they don't build a solid foundation of skills, therefore, any success doesn't last. It is also known that sudden extreme weight loss (ie: The Biggest Loser) can damage your metabolism, making it harder to lose weight the next time.
My focus is to give you the skills to lose weight in a comfortable, healthy manner, and to be able to keep it off long term without great struggle.
For those who want to lose weight, but are fearful of not being able to eat their favourite foods - In this Coaching Program, we don't even think about significant food changed until Phase 3. We build a good foundation in Phases 1 and 2, so food changes in Phase 3 are not a big deal. And there is less internal resistance.
The 3 Phases that we will cover in our time working together:
* Phase 1: Recognizing and identifying thoughts
* Phase 2: Combating and dealing with sabotaging thoughts
* Phase 3: Created your personalized Food Plan
How long will it take to get through the 3 Phases?
It is different for each person. Some people who are already familiar with Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, can initially move through a bit quicker, but it is individual with each person. Some move through in a couple of months, some take a year or more. Many may groan at the idea of an entire year to get through the 3 Phases, but I need to ask, "How many years have you wasted on weight loss efforts, and you are still not close to your weight loss goal?" If what you have been doing isn't working, nor lasting for you, then maybe it is time to try a different approach. Our work together can be challenging, but the results can be so worth it.
It is common knowledge that 97% of people that lose weight on a diet, gain it all back within a few years. Don't let that be you.
This Coaching Program is NOT for everyone. If you are wanting a prescribed eating plan, or you want to lose weight within a certain amount of time, then this Weight Loss Coaching Program is not for you. This is not intended to be a quick fix. This Coaching Program is 100% by Email, so if you are wishing for in person visits or appointments, then this is not the program for you.
This Coaching Program will require some commitment and effort, but I don't want to overwhelm you. This is why we do not cover more than 1 new skill/exercise/homework per week. Some weeks, if you are struggling, then we won't move on to anything new, until you feel comfortable to do so.

What is the cost of the Weight Loss Coaching Program?
The current rate is $100 Cdn per month. If you consider that single 1 hour massage appointment is approximately $92 to $130. If you purchased 2 medium coffee's per day, you would be paying approximately $120 per month (or more). Is your health and weight loss not worth this low monthly fee?
The amount of time you are committed to your Weight Loss Coaching Program with me is up to you. When you sign up, you will be automatically set up for a 12 month commitment - but if you wish to move on, then you can leave the Coaching Program at any time (although already charged payments will not be refunded). If you wish to re-join the Weight Loss Coaching Program then you re-commit to the current listed price.
They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If you have not seen lasting results in the diet programs you have been doing, then maybe it is time to try something else.
