Rachelle Simpson Sweet PhD – Who am I and why I should be your coach.
Let me introduce myself. While I can’t tell you everything…(that may require a book), I can give you the high and low points.
I have a pretty diverse background, starting with formal education (12 years of college, internships and fellowships….and lot’s of research), yes got a PhD in Neuropsychology and worked in private practice for a while. I also have experience in Real estate and Tourism. I enjoyed meeting 1000’s of people from all over then world.
But during all of the ups and down in life, my struggling with weight issues didn’t change much. I starting dieting at 13 years of age. I have tried so many diets, I understand what it’s like to have diets fail time and time again. You feel like you can’t change your body’s programs.
When I started this journey I just wanted to be healthy and happy in my own skin. Sure I wanted to lose weight, but after years of failed diets, I wasn’t ready for another one. First, I changed my mindset around food and the type of food I was eating. Then, when I got my first wearable, it really was just to see how many steps I took in a day, because I was sure it was a lot. I didn’t realize what else it would do for me, another piece of a crazy puzzle. After years of diets, I have finally found the formula for my weight loss and weight maintenance. After years of struggling, 5 years ago, I lost over 100lbs! I have successfully maintained that weight loss to this day. While I am always a work in progress, I work on it daily. I wanted to share some picture before and after.
I have had health challenges over the years, Endometriosis, IBS and hellish menopause to name a few. But, I don’t take any medication, daily, just supplements and have a good immune system. I like to be active & explore the world. I eat mainly a plant-based diet & love green shakes & vegetables.
Now, with the dawn of COVID, I return to my healthcare roots. I saw the destruction of families and lives because of illness, not COVID per se, but other illness. Illness such as diabetes and heart disease, that made you more vulnerable to COVID. Also, hospitals couldn’t cope with COVID, as they were already 104% occupied with people sick from mostly preventable illnesses. There must be away to change that?
So, I got Certified.
