Kay’s Story

Kay struggled with her weight as a stressed out yoyo dieter for more than 30 years. For Kay, it wasn’t just about food and physical activity. It was about something much more profound. Kay’s yoyo dieting was about not:

  1. Believing in herself.
  2. Knowing how to handle stress.
  3. Loving herself.

Kay began comforting herself with food after suffering from a childhood trauma. She used food as a way to protect herself from her fears. As a teenager she began 25 rounds of dieting. She lost and regained 300 pounds—15 pounds at a time.

Finally, one day, Kay looked fear in the eye. It was then she began the process of healing. She discovered how to turn trauma into growth and freedom. Finally, she lost weight and kept it off for the very first time.

Kay created a program for herself from discoveries made during her personal weight loss journey and extensive international travel.

Kay now shares Sweet Life Wellness coaching with clients.
