There is so much information out there – some contradictory – that starting a new journey can feel overwhelming. I hope the following FAQs help you better understand my thought process and help you determine whether or not we’d be a good fit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Learn How it Works!
Will working with you help me lose weight quickly?
Well Life, LLC’s 6-month program is not a “quick-fix” program. This program is about making life long changes to help you feel your best.
What if I can’t follow some of your recommendations?
I understand that occasionally things happen and you may not always follow through with suggestions. Since my program is client driven (you create your goals and I assist by breaking them down into attainable action steps), you will be deciding what you are able to follow through with between our meetings. You are the making the decisions and I am supporting you every step of the way
How do I know if I am right for your program?
I am ready to meet you wherever you are in your wellness journey and guide you to the next level. If you are ready to invest in your health, have wellness goals and need accountability to achieve them, then Well Life is right for you.
I hate dieting because it makes me feel deprived—and my cravings go through the roof. Will I have to give up all of the things I love and follow a strict diet plan if I work with you?
Deprivation makes most people do the exact opposite behavior that is desired. This is YOUR program and YOUR goals. There is no “one size fits all” approach when working with me. We will work with your strengths and figure out together how to get you where you want to go.
What if I sign up for your program and don’t achieve my goals?
We don’t always have control over the outcome when we set long-term goals. For example, you might like to lose 50 pounds. But as we get started, we may discover extenuating circumstances complicating your efforts, like a hormone or a thyroid issue. We do, however, have control over small behaviors to reach our long-term goals—like adding one fruit or vegetable to each meal. Small, doable goals can create a powerful impact when it comes to moving closer to your long-term goal.
Which diet is best for me to follow?
Each person is different and one person’s food is another person’s poison. This is something we investigate together to see what is right for you and your situation.
Will you advise me regarding medications and supplements?
Well Life, LLC will not prescribe nor instruct you to discontinue medications you are currently taking. You will need to consult your Health Care Provider to make any changes to your medications.
Do you accept insurance?
Well Life, LLC programs operate outside the insurance system to create the lowest cost for clients.
I struggle with sticking to wellness programs long-term. What sort of accountability do you offer?
We will work together to create small doable changes, so you don’t feel deprived. Each change will build on the next until they become habits, like brushing your teeth. And as your accountability partner, I will be with you every step of the way.
I know exercise is important to my health, but my consistency is lacking because exercise isn’t fun for me. Can you help?
Yes, I can help! Oftentimes people lack consistency with exercise because they haven’t found an activity they enjoy. We will most definitely explore this together. Many of us don’t realize what we already do or can do each day to enhance physical activity, like taking multiple trips while bringing our groceries into the house.
I travel frequently for my job, which makes healthy living a challenge. How does your program accommodate road warriors like me?
Making small changes that don’t disrupt your flow of life are important aspects of my program. Again, we’ll look at your priorities and find small doable actions to incorporate into your schedule, creating an individualized program just right for you.
But What Should I Eat?
I’m a firm believer that eating well doesn’t mean losing out on flavor. Here, healthy CAN be delicious. Whether you have food sensitivities or allergies, or maybe you’re just trying to eat healthier; there’s something delicious here for you.
