Sabrina is a 40 year old wife and mother, who has been riding the weight roller coaster for the better part of 32 years. She spent most of her life as a chronic emotional eater, often bingeing late at night and in private where where no one could see her out-of-control behavior. In addition to suffering from a degenerative disc in her lower back, and the chronic pain it caused, Sabrina was using two inhalers to control her asthma, taking two forms of allergy medication, and fighting severely high blood pressure.
At the age of 18, Sabrina started actively trying to manage her weight, and she followed every program imaginable. If you could count it, make a shake, buy a meal plan, take a pill, or see it on an infommercial, it was probably something she'd tried at least once. All of the "diets" would work for a while, but they all ended in failure. Sabrina struggled with the long-term sustainablity of all the various products and programs, and she would eventually gain all of the weight back, plus a little extra.
Her emotional struggles she came to a head when Sabrina traded in her corporate job to be a full-time mom. She buried her feelings in food, and continued to eat and gain. Reality struck two years later at the amusement park, when she could not fasten the seat belt around both her and her daughter on many rides. The look on her child's face was devastating. Her daughter didn’t understand why they couldn’t go on all the fun rides, and Sabrina recalls this being one of the most hurtful moments in her life. Several months later, not fitting into any of her clothing and feeling completely hopeless, Sabrina had reached her highest known weight, 257 pounds.
Sabrina was introduced to the Ketogenic way of life by a friend who had a similar dieting history, but had finally found success. Once she learned about the new lifestyle, she dove right in. The first thing she noticed was that she wasn’t hungry all the time. Finally, after years of mental and emotional struggle, food was no longer at the forefront of her thoughts. This was a total game changer!
Two months into Sabrina's Ketogenic journey, the chronic back pain simply disappeared. Although she had suffered from a lifetime of respiratory problems, she suddenly found herself without an inhaler and taking one allergy pill instead of two. Four months after that, Sabrina had reduced her blood pressure medications down to a single water pill, and she was finally able to ride those rides at the amusement park with her daughter! It's now been over a year, and Sabrina feels better than she ever has in her life. She has a ton of energy, and has dropped just over 80 pounds.
Sabrina has spent the last year educating friends, family, and those in her community about the Ketogenic way of eating. She is passionate about helping others understand that Keto is a healthy, sustainable way of life. Her personal motto is, “It’s not always easy, but it’s always non-negotiable.” There may be emotional struggles and physical stalls along the way, but if you push on you will be victorious!
With a background in teaching, coaching, and training, Sabrina feels that her new career as Ketovangelist Lifestyle Coach is a perfect fit! Sabrina cannot wait to be a part of your keto journey.
