What prompted you to make a change?
My sister had success with OnPoint Nutrition. I was lost on what to do to lose all the weight I'd gained over the past few years. I reached a point where I was not happy or comfortable in my own skin so I decided to make a change and reached out and invested in counseling.
How has your life and health changed since working with OnPoint Nutrition?
I am more confident, happier and now truly love myself. I learned I am a lot stronger both physically and mentally than I thought I was. I was able to overcome negative thoughts I've had about myself and turn them into positive thoughts.
I work as a night shift nurse which results in a pretty grueling schedule. My energy levels have improved and getting through my shifts has progressively become easier. I am wanting to work out more to go along with eating right. I still have a long way to go but I'm definitely going in the right direction. I am wanting to lose more weight and keep hitting my nutrition goals.
What would you tell someone who is thinking about working with OnPoint Nutrition?
Definitely do it! It’s a healthy way to lose weight
. It’s not a “diet” where you’re more likely to cheat and go back to unhealthy ways, it’s a lifestyle. They work around your lifestyle so you’re still able to go out and do things you enjoy without feeling guilty or deprived.
What was the hardest part of your journey? How did get through it?
Mentally telling myself I could do it. Getting myself to the gym on the days I was tired from working overnight was tough. I kept telling myself that it's 1 hour of my day and I can rest later, plus I'd feel better once I went. I'm proud that I've gone to the gym as much as I have despite my weird schedule. I was able to run a 5k which I did not think I'd be able to do. I'm proud of how far I've come physically and mentally.
