My Story

 

 

How are you feeling today? Feeling great, or are you feeling a little frustrated, tired, disappointed? Maybe you’re feeling a little scared - you’re over 40 and your health isn’t perfect anymore, it’s a scary thing to realize. Trust me, I know. I’ve been there - boy, have I!

I’ve felt the stress of a career in real estate - twenty long, arduous years of stress and anxiety.
I’ve struggled with weight gain, a body that got slower and more and more unhealthy, filled with anxiety & depression.
I’ve gone through the wringer of chronic dieting, emotional eating, stress eating, binge eating - a hot mess!

If only I could keep my willpower stronger, change my genetic makeup, find a way to suppress that monster appetite...

When the realization hit me that it wasn’t me, but it was the diets, the kinds of foods I was shoveling in, that were hurting my body, it was like a light switched on in the dusty corners of my mind. I needed to love myself, treat myself right, be good to ME. 

I needed answers, good ones, so I enrolled at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and started learning about how food really works and how you need more than just physical health —  you need to be in touch with your body, mind, and soul. 

In my late 30’s, I was diagnosed with fibrous tumors, and had a partial hysterectomy – The day after that surgery, while still recovering in the hospital, I was informed by doctors that I had bladder cancer.

Luckily, it was early, and after a second surgery two months later I was Cancer-free – but sure wasn’t trauma-free. I was severely overweight, every relationship was toxic, and I was on a path to self-destruction.

By that point, I’d done what most of you have done - tried every diet I could, lost the weight, gained it back, and started to beat myself up because I was too “weak” to keep it off.


Sounds like enough to get anyone down, doesn’t it? But you know what? I’m nowhere near down. I’m up, up high, filled with joy and hope and strength and energy, and you want to know why?

 
About - Ebony Wellness

I discovered the not-so-secret secret… 

●     The secret that there’s more to life than just me and my struggling.

●  The secret that the Standard American Diet doesn’t do anyone any good.

●     The secret that it is possible to transform your life, no matter how bad things have been, and it is possible to enjoy physical, mental and emotional wellness, even when you’ve taken every beating you thought life could throw at you.

I learned a whole-foods, holistic approach to living a better and healthier life. By making small, consistent changes in my approach, I was able to drop my struggle with food and body, lose the weight I was constantly battling with, and reclaim my natural love of food.

Today, I feel incredible – and now I want to share what I learned with women who are suffering as I did - women like you. Thank you for being here. I hope you enjoy the tips and resources as much as I enjoy sharing them with you! xo, Ebony

Have faith in your journey. Everything had to happen exactly as it did to get you where you’re going next!
