“I have lost 28 pounds and 3 sizes working with Melanie as my Coach. I’ve gone from a size 18 pants to a size 10! Her coaching was over and above what I was expecting.” Debra S

“I would like to take a minute to give a huge shout out to Melanie Pederson. I’ve only known her a few months, but she has CHANGED my life. Not only is she a huge inspiration as she just hit her 100 pound weight loss with Keto, but she is also an amazing Keto Coach. Most of you know, I started Keto January 1st and after almost four weeks of not losing a single pound, she was there with my every day – anytime! Reading books, Googling, reading my doctor’s blood test results and motivating me to not give up. You see, I am a very strong woman, but there are just times when I wanted to give up. Without you, Melanie, I don’t think I would have FINALLY seen the scale drop, kept pushing myself or been able to handle the emotional roller coaster of frustration. I was needing to be strong and support my daughter as she is on this journey with me. I couldn’t have been there for her if you weren’t here for me! Thank you for believing in me when I didn’t. It may only be 4 pounds in 5 weeks, BUT it’s progress and I’m grateful to have you as my Coach, Friend, and Supporter. If you are serious about Keto, HIRE HER!

P.S. The weight is falling off now because she was able to identify a key hormonal issue! It wasn’t the food, macros or her coaching that was the problem – it was my body being an a**hole!”

The idea of hiring a health coach had always seemed impossible. I am a single mom and like most moms out there, I always put myself last, but I have always been okay with that. I tried through the years to lose weight on my own. I tried different diet plans and I tried working out, but I found it hard to be consistent. No matter how hard I tried and how successful I felt during the day, when the night came and I put the kids to bed after an exhausting day of working full time, errands and other obligations, I turned to the one thing that could always give me comfort - food. It has been my story for too many years to count. I eventually accepted my fate as a "cute chubby girl" and decided to stop caring so much. This was pretty much my way of numbing from the feelings of failure and "not being enough." I also used food to numb from the pain and hurt I felt from broken relationships and feelings of loneliness. I guess you could say food has always been my constant friend. Does this story sound familiar?

Then one morning I met Melanie. She was at a local community event selling her Keto goodies. I was curious so stopped to talk to her. How could a diet plan have such delicious desserts? I bought some to try and took them home to "share with the family." Of course I scarfed them down all by myself, but you know what? They were amazing. "Well," I thought, "Maybe this could work for me." But even more than the desserts, what drew me to Melanie was her story. I found out that Melanie was just like me. She had struggled with her weight, just like me. She had tried and failed, just like me. She had felt hopeless and alone, just like me. However, Melanie had found a way to lose over 100 lbs following a ketogenic, low-carb lifestyle. If she could do it, why not me? That was the first step. The idea of what was possible, even for me. After a few months went by, I finally talked myself into contacting her. So, I did. Due to my tight budget, I decided to meet with her a few times to 'see how it would go.' Little did I know that I would start a journey with Melanie that would be about so much more than losing weight.

Melanie has sat with me and listened to the things that have made me hurt the most in my life - the "why's" to why I eat to numb. She has cried with me. She has comforted me. She has provided me with resources, books, TED Talks and more to help me work through what I was feeling. And yes, she has helped me learn how to manage what I eat. She has worked with me to help me transition my food intake according to what will keep me successful and not set me up for failure. I text her when I am having a bad day, a great day or anything in-between. She cheers me on and offers guidance when I slip.

To date I have lost 24 lbs. I know I still have a very long way to go, but I am not personally measuring my success just by the scale alone. I went to the doctors for the first time in many, many years. After working with Melanie, I am no longer pre-diabetic! In fact, I got a happy face from the doctor for all my lab tests! I have finally realized that being alive for my kids is worth it and now everyday I tell myself that I AM WORTH IT! I bet you haven't said that to yourself for a long time, right?

It is not easy work. It is hard to deal with the things I have pushed down for so long. Sometimes it is even hard not to run to the freezer and have a pow wow with my old friends Ben & Jerry when I have had a stressful day. But dammit, it feels so much better to feel alive! It feels better to stop treating myself like I am not worth fighting for. It feels better to call Melanie and say, "Guess what Melanie?! I felt like crap today and wanted to stuff my face with chocolate and a loaf of french bread but I didn't!!! Instead, I went for a walk outside with my daughter and said a prayer and I got through it!"

My journey is far from over. In fact, it is just beginning. But what I can tell you is that hiring Melanie to be my coach was an answer to my prayers, literally. I needed someone to cheer me on, to confide in and to guide me. I needed a coach who had walked in my shoes and who knew exactly what it felt like to be overweight and overwhelmed. I needed someone who had fought the fight and was winning.

If you are contemplating your next steps, I would say to you - It is OKAY to invest in your own life. I promise that you will walk this journey with Melanie and feel empowered to succeed. YOU ARE WORTH IT! You will be an example to your kids, your family and all those whom God brings into your life. I hope you choose you for a change and join me on this journey.

After a tough AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) Workout - “This workout kicked my butt. I went though it 4 times and I didn’t want to get up after the last set. Thank you, Melanie Pederson, for being tough, a pain in my ass, and the biggest inspiration and person could ask for.

I started working out to prove people wrong that said I wouldn’t do or stick with it and once I let that anger go and started doing it for myself, I’m amazed at what I can do. Yes, it’s been a struggle and there are days when all I want to do is eat bread but I got this!!” Kristie S
