How weight loss smoothies helped me lose 87lbs!

Weight loss smoothies have had a huge impact on my life in so many ways. I had gained 65 pounds in my twenties from my first pregnancy... even on my "organic" processed food diet. My energy levels ran low even though I was in my twenties.

I remember when I was introduced to the concept of the green smoothie diet at a health food store almost two decades ago. A lady was handing out free taste samples. I used to work at a smoothie bar and the thought of adding greens to smoothies had never occurred to me.

Only 2-3 months after starting my daily habit of the green smoothie, people started to comment on how “radiant” my skin looked and asked how I was losing weight.

Soon, I had to make a printout of tips and smoothie recipes for weight loss and energy to give out to friends and family. I didn’t want them to miss out on such a simple concept. Not long after that, I started teaching health classes on how to make smoothies.

I had lost over 45 pounds and gained soaring levels of energy. My passion has grown so much for this simple concept that I built this website, Smoothie Handbook. I want you to feel the freedom that I was experiencing.

Unfortunately, I did not understand the concept of calorie in and calorie out very well. I only thought that if I could be drinking a healthy smoothie every day. I was shielded from consuming the excess calories.

I eventually had 2 more wonderful kids. Over a period of almost 15 years later, I found myself at 255 pounds. I had given up on my health! I didn't think I deserved to be healthy. I hid in my body to avoid certain activities with my family. My self-worth was at an all-time low!

The pivoting moment in my life...

87 Pounds

My family had gone to celebrate the New Years with another family. My husband took a few pictures that made my heart sink. At this point... I was avoiding all scales and only posing in certain ways to present my "best" to the camera. In that fateful night of celebration... I had to face a harsh reality.

I look back and am so thankful that this event happened. This picture pushed me to get out of my comfort zone and to look myself in the eye and see the gravity that my body and mind were in.

It has taken a full year to lose over 80 pounds. I still enjoy fruit, chocolate, and dessert weight loss smoothies every day.

I'm glad to be walking this journey of healing my thoughts about myself and how I look at food. I have poured myself into learning everything there is about weight loss transformations using simple but yet effective tools and accountability.

I am now helping others to be the best they can be by doing one-on-one coaching. Seeing others progress and succeed brings me so much joy!
