As we head into bathing suit season I wanted to share a personal story of one of my clients. Although I have humbly helped hundreds of amazing clients drop weight and stop symptoms of unhealthy habits all over the United States, Canada, and England my client Susan DeLeo offered to really open up and share details of her heartfelt story with the world.
Susan was a busy television morning show host for 25 years, a very stressful and demanding life. She was packing on pounds, not sleeping, and felt like menopause was caving in on her. Susan and I have been friends for years now and about 18 months ago she looked over at me in the car (we drive to hot yoga together on Saturday mornings) with tears in her eyes and said, “Lana, can you help me with my foggy thinking and help me get this weight off? I feel like I’m losing my mind, I can’t think clearly and I’ve been on anti-depressants for years! I always feel anxious and I’m not sleeping. I feel like crap, I want your help. I want to hire you officially to be my doctor.” Then she said, “I have listened to you for years and I want to help you spread the word about what you do, it’s rare, it works, people need to know.”
I asked her if she wanted to stop at Starbucks and talk. As we sipped our hot drinks we both got tears in our eyes as we realized that my education and training and her willingness was about to change her life. What we did not know is what would happen afterwards, the lives that would be transformed.
Susan did come to me as a private patient. By then I had many of my private patients asking me to teach group classes. So I launched Your Skinny Kitchen, a three-part, group, tele-class with 90-minute sessions. I even recorded the sessions for convenience as women are busy! Susan jumped into Your Skinny Kitchen too, with both feet! She dove into the step-by-step plan that gets the flat belly, stops that foggy thinking, ends hot flashes, sleepless nights, and extra weight!
My program is based on gold standard science that is why it works. I taught Susan (and the other course members) the way the human body operates. That is the key. I help them “flip the switch” in their brain to understand food and fat melts and symptoms stop. We don’t get operator manuals at birth and by the time we’ve figured out we need one it’s often, very sadly, too late.
Susan dropped 4, yes 4, dress sizes, she (with the supervision of her primary care doctor) got off of all her anti-anxiety medicine, too. Her foggy thinking cleared up, menopause issues disappeared, and she sleeps like a baby. She even changed her career, started her own media company, she has her own media Company and she’s my Executive PR Director. Her whole life has changed for the better! She’s a different person. She’s back! Susan gets stopped on the street everywhere she goes! Hey, what did you do? You look gorgeous! You look 15 years younger!
Because of her willingness to share, so many women have taken and are signed up to take Your Skinny Kitchen. Specials are limited and classes fill fast. Lives are transformed – it is way beyond weight loss. Anyone can get you skinny but do you keep it off and most important does it protect your health? This program does both.
We are on a mission to help empower women and teach them to embrace wellness and take control of their health. You have the power to be lean and well, I teach you how to take it back! We’re at www.inspiredbywellness.com.
