Why Have a Coach?

Article by Kimmi Katte

 

Picture this:
You are the driver of your car, taking a new journey on the road to Wellness. You’re enjoying the scenery and your own company, you believe you’re fuelled up properly and that you have all the knowledge and equipment you need to reach your destination. You’ve seen the stories of other people reaching Wellness, too, and you can’t wait to get there!

However you keep coming across roadblocks, potholes, other cars that have broken down on their own journey to Wellness, and the road signs seem to be quite misleading and confusing. You keep pulling over to read the map again, but there are so many differing routes, and the number of times you have to stop and turn around because you took a wrong turn is driving you mad! Your car is suffering along the way, and you start wondering if you used the right kind and amount of fuel. Destination Wellness seems to be elusive.

You need a navigator! Somebody who can keep their eyes on the map for you and advise you on the best course of action in any given circumstances.

Your navigator knows the different routes that exist because they’ve travelled to destination Wellness many times before with other drivers who have had different starting points and had cars with differing capacities. Your navigator will encourage you to keep going, even when you feel as though you’re going in the wrong direction, because their confidence is substantiated by experience and knowledge. They can also advise you on fuel, rest, speed, cornering, and give information about your current position so that you can understand and enjoy the journey.

You always have complete control of the car. Thankfully, your navigator will never try to take the wheel out of your hands, or try to gain control of the brake or the accelerator; that’s because your navigator wants you to feel empowered to make decisions about the journey, based on their reliable information and vast experience. You choose whether you listen to your navigator or not, and the consequences of those choices belong to you; a driver knows that ignoring his or her navigator could result in late arrival, wrong destination, breakdowns, etc. A driver also knows that following the directions of his or her navigator means they can relax about the journey and just do the driving!

You guys know I’m talking about getting a coach, right? If you’ve tried and tried, but don’t seem to be getting anywhere with your attempts at making a ketogenic diet work for you, you might want to take a look at getting a navigator to help you on your way!

I gifted myself coaching with Elaina. I love it! It helps hold me accountable and she steers me in the right direction. Very much needed on my journey.

I began Keto in January 2017, in February I decided to give MYSELF some LOVE and I got a KETO COACH! Linda was such a great Keto Coach she helped me understand Keto, it also was great to have a knowledgeable, Ketofied friend and teacher to help me through the maze of questions and concerns. Having a Keto coach, helped me so much, I am at my goal, comfortable in my skin, I understand the principles of the Keto WOE. I am so thankful and grateful for the knowledge and support I have received through the Keto coaching community!

As hard as it may seem, you can do it! Jessyca Reynolds helped me get to my goal of losing 100lbs for my sisters wedding by last month.  Trust the process. You can do it!

I heard about Keto in September of 2016 from a friend.  I’d never heard about it before then so I looked into it.  I’ve tried many times to loose weight but had no success.  I hit 220 pounds and said that something has to change.  So started Keto lost 40 pounds within 9 months then stalled and went awhile before getting coach Mary Roberts.  She helped me fine tune to start losing again.  I have been stalled again for awhile but I am in no rush I’ve went from size 22 to 12 regular jeans.  Now I’m in a petite 12 no weight loss but my body is changing and healing so slowly.  I am Ketoing on knowing this lifestyle is healing me.  I also forgot to say I have Hypothyroidism and Keto is helping with that as well.  I love this group and all the help we give each other.

I started with coach Lisa nine months ago — long enough go grow and birth a baby! And with the work we did on roots of my eating issues I feel I really have had a rebirth of sorts. I no longer binge, no longer think about food 24/7 (yes, I even dreamed of food), no longer run to food for comfort, love, distraction or as a sedative or tranquilizer. She worked with me through three exceptionally hard events in my life and I stayed Keto strong through it all. I could not have done it without my coach.
