Kara: Taking Life Back from PCOS

Kara approached me weighing 260lbs. She had already begun her journey but was in need of deeper guidance with accountability to maneuver her PCOS along with her emotional barriers.
We worked through 55 lbs of weight loss and today Kara continues her journey with exact knowledge of what works for her!

PCOS and Eating-on-the-go

Over the course of many years Kara neglected her health. She was always active. When she found her love for dance, it was hard for her to face the stereotypes of what a dancer “should” look like. Her weight never held her back physically; however she knew that losing weight would only enhance her abilities.

The Solution

  • Eating on the go around dance classes and work.
Kara and I worked hands on to find meals that worked well around her busy schedules. We also found winning options on menus that she knew could be her ‘go to meals’ when schedules would change without warning.
  • Kara’s symptoms of PCOS made it a struggle to lose weight.
Important factors were selecting foods that did not trigger the PCOS. Medications for her PCOS added to water retention and bloating. Increased her water intake was crucial. Added cravings that came with PCOS were sweets. We tailored sweet meals that had less sugars to attack these cravings.
  • Progress not perfection.
Kara learned that the key to any journey was “failing forward”. As she takes two steps forward, falling down one —as long as she got right back up—she was still a step ahead.
This broke her fear of failing and her search for perfection.
