"I started working with Emily to lose weight and to try to improve my body image, self-worth, energy levels, and eating habits. She provided me with structured support, recipes, ideas on meal planning, and was caring and always willing to listen. She taught me breathing techniques to help in anxiety and stress filled situations as well. Emily is the most genuine, caring person I have ever met and she has gone above and beyond and has drastically changed my life. I changed my eating habits and am eating more well balanced meals at home. I used to wake up craving sugar and coffee and now I wake up craving vegetables and water. It's just so amazing because I don't feel deprived at all and I feel so much better. It's all about moderation and making better choices; I don't have to be on a diet. I have lost 41 pounds, am wearing smaller clothing, haven't experienced my usual panic attacks, and have even lowered my thyroid medication. More importantly I LOVE myself despite my weight and the scale does not define me; I do. I never thought I could feel this way. I feel happy at my size. I used to think nothing good could happen to you unless you were 'skinny.' I was always working on being healthy for other people or for an event or an outfit. Now I do it for myself."
