The past year I have been in a very negative place mentally. Within a 6-month period I lost 20 pounds by running 5-7 miles daily and eating barely 800 calories each day. I was skinny and thought I was happy but I was really miserable. Slowly, I started a habit of binging every weekend, eating more in one sitting than I would in that entire past week. Eventually my body and mind had enough. I went through an entire month of binging every single day. I ended up gaining all 20 pounds back.
I was lost and completely degraded, but then I found Dasha. I could not be more grateful. She took the time to customize personal nutrition and workout plans for my daily needs. She was there for me any time I needed any advice or help or even just somebody to talk to. She is so kind and positive, and I can truthfully say that she has removed my head from an extremely negative place. I am beginning to once again see the value of food as fuel, rather than something evil. Although I am still far from my goals, in just four weeks, Dasha has taught me more about myself than I would have thought possible. I am so confident in her ability to coach me and cannot wait to continue working with her for another eight weeks, and beyond.
