How has your lifestyle changed, since working with Expedition Wellness?

Besides choosing healthier meal/snack options at home, I learned how easy it can be to eat out and choose healthier options.  Due to this new healthier lifestyle, I don’t feel “blah” anymore, have increased energy and can run FAST again!

What was your “Why”?

“I decided to work with Jess because after 4 kids, I knew I wanted to be successful with weight loss and she has given me the tools to do it.  I now love meal planning!  She has great recipes and after these months of practice, it is easy to know what to make and buy.

What tips do you have for others who want to pursue their weight loss goals following the Expedition Wellness Plan?

Expedition Wellness helps keep you accountable for your healthy food choices. Weekly check ins help with being able to talk about your concerns so you can make adjustments to get you back on track. Jessica always made sure to remind me of my water intake which is crucial to weight loss also.

Lifestyle has changed since working with Expedition Wellness:  I am held accountable and think about what I'm putting in my body.  I watch my carb intake when drinking alcohol.  I now scan the restaurant menu for healthier options when out or look at menu online before I go out.  The check ins with Jess help me get my life back on track knowing that I will be weighing in.

My lifestyle has changed in the way I eat since working with Expedition Wellness. I know how to prepare my food better and what to look for and what not to eat. How to overcome some cravings. That eating better helps your workouts and makes you feel more energized. The program has really helped me feel more confident in preparing ways to make foods with more veggies and other ways to make them.

This is very cliche, but trust the plan!!

It will work. I felt like a failure some days, even some full weeks.

 

But with Jess's encouragement, I would refocus and start again. If you follow the plan, you will get results. Don't give up!!

I make better decisions when eating and am also much more conscientious of portion sizes.

Eating healthy does not mean bland or boring.  There are many healthy choices that are also delicious.

I feel like I eat for purpose more than pleasure which has helped a lot. I pay more attention to what foods make me feel good and give me energy.
Stick to it no matter how slow the progress is. It pays off eventually. Slow progress is better than no progress.

I look at food differently. I still eat things I like but only occasionally which makes me enjoy more when I do have them. I don’t stress eat anymore. Every time go grab something bad I think to myself is that a healthy choice? Then i change it to something healthier.

Did you know that Expedition Wellness offers 1-Free 15 min session for each referral?  I definitely recommend Expedition Wellness to others.  It’s not a strict meal plan to follow but guidelines and tools to use in order to determine what works best for you.

Expedition Wellness has taught me how to love vegetables and how to cook them properly. I am no longer chronically tried. I am a night shift worker and I always thought that I was fatigued due to the shift I worked. I have more energy than ever now, which gives me more opportunities to do the things I love.

I met Jess well over a year before I started using her services. I had been with another nutritionist for about four months before calling Jess and was definitely being led down the wrong path. I wanted her “second opinion” or “gut check” against the program I had been put on. After our first visit and Jess’ explanation about how she approaches her plan, the flexibility and accountability factors she offered, I could tell she was a much better fit and it just made a lot more sense than what I had been doing.

Would you recommend Expedition Wellness to others? 

 

Absolutely and have already done so!  I have received so many compliments from different family members, friends and friends from the gym.  I have worked out regularly for several years now but my eating was way off track and Jess helped me right the ship and I am so much happier!

Use your resources and stick to the plan. It hard before it gets easier, don’t let that be discouraging.

I previously was oblivious to how many calories certain things had in it (IE: wine, pasta, etc). Tracking what I eat also helps the boredom snacking.

Start today! There can be so much shame and negative feelings around weight. I know when I started I was afraid of seeing a number on the scale. Expedition Wellness held me with so much grace and understanding while keeping me accountable to meet the goals I set. When I saw results after just one week, I knew I was with the right people. Having Expedition Wellness to coach and cheer me on made all the difference. If I can do it, anyone can!

Nutrition labels aren’t a mystery anymore - I can (and WANT to) read them!

I was not eating enough protein before starting with Expedition Wellness. 

I’m not done on this journey. It’s a permanent lifestyle change that can be flexible, but I can’t forget the fundamentals.

I began my journey after seeing the success of my sister and realizing that I needed to make a change.  I had been living in denial for a very long time and viewed food as a comfort and vice rather than fuel for my body.  Over the past year, I have discovered portion sizes, ratios, and the freedom of eating without guilt.  As I enter maintenance, I hope to maintain my success, inform others, and encourage those around me to follow a healthy nutrition journey.

I appreciate the Facebook and Pinterest groups that have a ton of recipe ideas.  And I continue to enjoying meeting with Alex for the weigh-in and positive support.  She always has great meal and snack ideas and it’s helpful that you can choose how many times a month you want to meet.

As I stated earlier, I have decided to leave my caloric intake where Alex had set it for weight loss as it is manageable but now I will not sweat it so much if I have a big day or big meal out. I am just going to see where it takes me at this point. I am still tracking my calories. A little more loosely now as I have a general idea what foods and portion sizes work but when I’m not sure, I enter it into the diary app.
