I met Jackie in 2014. She was referred to me by a coworker who was attending JMM Wellness for food counseling as she was considering weight loss surgery. Although I knew I was not interested in surgery, I was most definitely interested in learning more about her practice and what I could learn from her when it came to losing weight.
I liked her right away because of her sweet disposition, her motivating ways and her wealth of knowledge. I found many things very interesting about what she had to say about what was to become my new journey.
We started out with my eating plan by focusing on what I liked. We went over what my daily routine consisted of; and from there, together, we built a healthy, reasonable and realistic food plan that worked for me. Somehow, despite my excuses I even made the time to incorporate exercise into the equation; something we continue to laugh about to this day because I didn’t think I would ever find something I could or even would stick with long enough without dying of boredom. Now 60 lbs lighter I couldn’t be happier.
I am a firm believer that people come into our lives for a reason, and I am ever so grateful that Jackie came into mine. Making the decision to meet Jackie was the best decision I could have ever made for myself.
Thank you so much for changing my life toward a direction I never thought possible.
