About

Welcome!  Here’s a quick shot of me…

And a little bit more about what I’m doing now…

Beginning November 1st,  it’s the Hallow-lean to New Year’s Dash: Daily tips and musings to keep us focused on feeling good through the holidays! Thanks for coming along.

And because I like to elaborate…

This is me then…and now. Then was November 2010. Now, each day gets better and better.

Before I dropped 85 pounds in six months I had tried many plans for much of my life. I wasn’t really looking because nothing ever worked long term. I’d decided to just love my 235 pound body as it was. In fact, I’d loved it right into every 3 months visits to the doctor’s office and was dangerously close to adding meds to my diet to manage my triglycerides and other health concerns that were creeping in. (It was this dysfunctional love, really. I get that now.)

Then a friend approached me and told me he had dropped forty pounds over the summer. He told me he’d had a health coach and he’d be mine. My doctor also mentioned she was a health coach on this program. Secretly I thought, “Maybe even I can do this.” I often say I didn’t discover Take Shape for Life: it tracked me down and rubbed my face in the gravel!

I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I was mad nobody had told me about this before. What happened along the journey was that I got very excited about getting healthy and realized that this program is not only about reaching an ideal weight, but also about falling in love with getting healthy all over. You will find free resources on my website to figure out where you are now on the healthy scale. (www.gethealthywithjamie.tsfl.com)

I also realized it wasn’t just about me. It was about a vision to get the world healthy. It was about helping people believe in themselves again, to regain (or find for the first time) confidence in themselves to get their bodies to the healthiest spot they could be. To find that allusive sweet spot of their perfect weight, BMI, and positive mental outlook without pills, drugs, crazy fad diets or surgeries.

To date, I have helped over 50 people drop more than 2,000 pounds. I am grateful for that. But I’m not stopping there. As a health coach, I hope to double that between now and June 2013.

I am a writer and am currently working on a book looking at the lives of over 20 people who’ve dropped 100 pounds or over on different programs. I look at their revealed secrets to keeping the weight off this final time. It’s called Bigger Than Me: When Physical Transformation Becomes a Metaphysical Makeover.

I’m so glad you’re here!

    Hi there! I just stumbled across your website and love what you have accomplished! I’m jut getting my practice started and really am wanting to put myself out there more and am finding quite a few clients have this “negative self talk” thing happening constantly, it’s something I still battle with from time to time too. So, just wanted to chat perhaps about your success and what had helped you do so well, especially around weight loss! Awesome work! Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!

    • Hi Amelia!
      Love the name. Thanks for dropping by and visiting. Congrats on your new venture! The negative self-talk is present in almost every woman I meet and it’s something we have control over if we’re mindful–but first we need to own it. I’d love to chat with you. Here’s my cell: (310) 508-9366. You can also email me at jamieweilwrites@gmail.com. I look forward to connecting.
      Thanks for reaching out. Jamie
