Few things are as satisfying to me as to assist a client overcome unhealthy family and societal pressures about eating and exercise. Jennifer Wade, a teacher at Pleasantdale Elementary School, had faced virtually constant pressure about her weight since she was a child.

To date, Jennifer has lost 15 lbs.—and counting—eating five times per day. “I enjoy working out on the ball and using the free weights,” Jennifer says. “I definitely feel healthier and have more energy.”
