Lauren’s Success When I first reached out to Yvette in February, I was in a total rut. Physically I was at my heaviest and mentally, my thoughts were even heavier. I knew I needed help, but was terrified to ask for it. I wish I could pinpoint the exact moment I broke, but the truth is I was just growing more frustrated with the life I was living. That all changed when I picked up the phone and spoke with Yvette. We set an appointment and she asked for me to come a half hour early just so she could get to know me. As soon as we started, all of my self-doubt and fear melted away. I got my diet on track and worked out regularly. I was starting to feel better and it was beginning to show. In April, my appendix ruptured. I was in the hospital for a week and out of work for 2 months. I couldn’t work out, but I stuck with my diet and Yvette checked on me frequently. I vowed that as soon as I could do 10 consecutive sit-ups, I would be back. That was 2 months ago and I am down about 35lbs since March. I still have a long way to go to reach my overall health goals, but I am no longer afraid to ask for the help I need to achieve them. The first time I spoke with Yvette, she told me that as soon as I start taking care of my body, everything else will fall into place. I am never going to forget this, because she was absolutely right.
