I’d been a truly active person for years when I first met Tia 1 1/2 years ago, but my eating was out of control, and I was carrying around lots of extra weight. I was strong, but was always in pain. I hoped that she would help me power through myriad old injuries and help me get my body back.
The first thing Tia did was put me on a food plan. She had me write down everything that crossed my lips and report in to her each week. Having someone I was accountable to helped me open my eyes.
One day, I was in Tia’s work out room and broke down and cried. I shared with her that over the past 40 years, I have worked hard to kick every substance under the sun. I told her that I’ve been dancing around food addiction ever since I can remember and had tried everything! Though I knew I was strong and had willpower, nothing ever worked for me and I felt defeated.
I was a miserable wreck, sitting in a lump on her floor and shared all of it with Tia. She told me not to worry, that she would take care of it. I smiled, certain I was making a fool of myself and she just wanted me out of her studio!
The next week when showed up, I was amazed to find that Tia had put herself in my shoes, considered what it must be like for me, asked around, looked online and researched options for a hard core food addict. She found an amazing program and told me about it. I bought the book from my phone as soon as I got in my car, read it cover to cover, and I haven’t looked back!
I continue to be accountable to Tia, and she helps me find workouts that suit my body and help me function better. She works around my old injuries and I’m getting stronger, faster and more flexible. I’ve lost over 50 pounds and know for a fact it will not come back! My pain is gone, my body is back and I am happy, thin and free!
Tia put herself in my shoes and supported me every step along this journey. With her help I will continue to work out in a way that suits my age and body. Reporting in to her will help me stay on track.
Without our health, we have nothing. Tia’s combination of knowledge, open mindedness and skill, along with her ability to modify and adapt, has brought me to a new place in my journey toward health and wellness for which I am so grateful!
