Hi, I'm Jo!
Nice to Meet you.
I'm a holistic health coach who knows what it's like to feel "stuck" in a body that isn't the healthy one you want.
Sure, my picture might make it seem like I've got it all together, but trust me, it hasn't always been like that.
You can read about my battle with weight-gain below, and learn how I can help YOU on your journey too!
I wasn't very happy so smiling for the camera was tough to pull off!
"I turned to food to deal with my depression..."
Born and raised in Colombia, I wasn't exactly excited to move to the cold climate in New Jersey and then even colder climate in London, Ontario.
I was 18 years old, I didn't speak much English, and I was leaving all of my friends behind me. It wasn't a happy time in my life and I turned to food to help me cope.
As a child I had always been physically active, but my new lifestyle soon caught up with me. I was out of shape and quickly gained 25 pounds of unwanted fat...
Finally I said, "Enough is enough" and I started making some little changes in my life...
It wasn't easy.
I had developed very comfortable habits that were hard to change. I liked eating junk food. It was always easier to order meals than to prepare them myself. And, I liked doing social things or even watching TV instead of exercising.
I liked my comfortable life...
But, I didn't like myself very much. And I knew that getting in shape and feeling healthy again was more important than eating nachos! (I really love nachos!)
So, here's what I did...
Want to learn the steps I used to drop 25lbs of fat? Or, have a question about how YOU can do it too?...
Enter your name and email address and I'll be in touch. Can't wait to meet you!
It took a lot of work and sacrifice to lose 25lbs and get back in shape, but it was worth it!
