Embrace the power of positive thinking!

I hear it all the time: "I got on the scale and it hasn’t changed!” or, "I got on the scale and it’s up 3lbs!" or, "I’ve been keto for 30 days and only lost 2lbs."

If this sounds like you, it is time to cut the mental fat, so you can cut your body fat.

How you see yourself determines your actions. If we see ourselves as failures, we will fail. However, if we see ourselves succeeding, then we WILL succeed.

Negative thoughts can lead you down the never ending rabbit whole of negativity. What is your internal dialogue when you look in a mirror? If your thoughts about yourself are bad or degrading, saying or thinking things to yourself like, "I will always be fat," and, "I hate doing exercise," then say out loud, "STOP IT!" This action breaks your train of thought. Now we have room to let in some positivity.

The power is in positive thinking. Positive self talk allows you to take on a healthier lifestyle. Telling yourself things like, "I will meet my step goal for the day," or, "Today I will make the best choices for my health," keeps your brain in the game which goes a long way to helping you stay the course.

Don't expect this to change your life immediately, but with time and practice it will! Remember: We didn’t form our bad habits or gain our weight overnight. It is unrealistic to think we are going to fix everything in a day, or even month. Be kind to yourself and focus on what is attainable. Make an effort to change your thoughts. With practice, it will change your life!

Ketogenic Lifestyle Coaching has changed my life. This is not something I say lightly. I went from prediabetic, obese, and frustrated from 40 years of failed diets and “I will start on this new diet on Monday” to normal weight, perfect blood glucose, amazing energy, and some bonuses like my allergies are gone, my skin looks 15 years younger, and chronic digestive issues are a thing of the past. More importantly, with the support of my coach I have stopped dieting and started living!

Huge...a freakin huge shout out & thank you!!11 months keto; we have been together 3-4 months. Sabrina has helped me work through some tough issues & stall including me now being at the lowest weight I have been in over 40 years. Having a coach has helped make me accountable not only to her but myself. If there is anyway to put it in your budget, do it!! I didn’t think I could afford it either, decided to try and now realize that this new way of life is about me being healthy and happy. It is finally my #1 priority.

Jessyca is my “Metabolism Whisperer.”  With her help, encouragement and wisdom, I have lost over 60 pounds since March, 2018.   When I started this journey, it was all about losing weight, but let me tell you what I have GAINED through working with her...confidence in myself and my abilities to set and reach measurable goals.  I am able to play with my daughter again.  I can RUN again!  When I started keto, I couldn’t even walk around the block without feeling defeated.  I have gotten rid of depression and anxiety and addressed disordered patterns of eating and thinking that have haunted me since childhood.  I have gotten off of two medications (for high blood pressure and an anti-epileptic that had become toxic to my liver).  Jessyca has helped me weather so many changes in such a short time...selling my house, a cross country move, a career change, supporting a loved one with metastatic cancer, navigation of unhealthy relationships with people and with food.  Jessyca has been an invaluable partner and inspiration to me on this journey.  She holds me accountable.  She helps me identify disordered behaviors and helps me find new ways of looking at things.  I am fitting into clothes and sizes I haven’t worn in 20 years!  When I think about my experience with keto & Jessyca, it’s with profound gratitude, because I really feel as if I gained my LIFE back.  I am a happier person and mother.  Jessyca is knowledgeable, resourceful, empathic and she will be in the trenches with you helping you reach your goals every day.  You will definitely lose with keto, but you will gain so much more than you ever imagined with her coaching.

I went through menopause at 40 and began to really struggle with my weight. I was no longer seeing success with the "normal" weight loss plans that had worked in my 20s and 30s and I was at my wit's end. I hired Katrina as my coach because I could not wrap my head around eating fat. I was terrified I would do it wrong and continue to gain. Figuring out the food ended up being the easy part - fixing my thinking and setting reasonable expectations for MY unique journey was where coaching was truly invaluable. I was a relatively slow loser and having Katrina help me understand why my progress was slow helped me stay the course. She also encouraged me focus on the non-scale benefits of Keto such as better sleep and no more aches and pains instead of being singularly focused on the scale. Thanks to Keto, I now feel better than I did in my 20s! Courtney (48 years old).
