As Seen In

Is your weight up and wellness down, along with your energy, mojo, and sense of self?
Are you sick and tired of feeling frumpy, lumpy and dumpy in ho hum clothes?
Are you generally thoughtful and kind, but not so compassionate or nurturing with yourself?
Do these challenges chafe worse than your inner thighs?
Your Nourished Life - Welcome

Your Nourished Life is a place to ditch your confusion, frustration, and shame. Join me and a vibrant community of fellow road-trippers embarking on a whole new way to travel towards lasting weight wellness.

It’s vulnerable to have hope about your weight and wellness.

Your Nourished Life - I Know

For 20 years I failed to stay on various Roads to Virtuous Eating and Exercise, sometimes skidding off course after a few hours, sometimes after a few months.

Finally in 2003, 6 months before my 40th birthday, I tried again… with such faint hope, I skipped a formal Before Picture (remember before selfies, when you had to ask someone to take your photo?).

I was sick of being sidelined. Of struggling with food. Of elastic waist pants. Of feeling stuffed and depleted at the same time.

Your Nourished Life - Before With Daughter
Your Nourished Life - After With Daughter

It was a trek with many twists and turns, learning from slip ups and successes, ultimately allowing me to lose and keep off 85 lbs for over 13 years now, feel my sassy, soulful self again, and savour my truly Nourished Life. I still need adult supervision in Bulk Barn, eat too quickly sometimes or in front of the computer, take elevators, forget to drink water, have Inner Meanie thoughts, and so on, but I don’t need to be a Paragon to be scrumptiously well, and neither do you!
