I’m Melissa McLane. Certified holistic wellness practitioner. Weight loss coach. Mom of two beautiful children.
Being a mom is so beautiful and all-consuming. There is so much joy in being a parent and yet we can completely ignore our own personal wellbeing. The cost is a loss of sense of self. We end up losing our identity outside of our role of being a parent. Being a parent is about selfless giving. What we do is rely on food and possible alcohol to help us get through. What food does for us is a way we can find pleasure and treat ourselves. It is a way to reward ourselves and it is reliable as it never lets us down.
But at times I didn’t know how to maintain my own sense of self, my weight, my health, work, and my relationships. While I was pregnant I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and at that point, I knew I had to dig deep to find tools to help me. I tried many different approaches and nothing seemed to work.
There’s so much information to digest about being a good parent, good spouse, health, feeling good in my body and mind - I felt completely confused, frustrated, and overwhelmed.
So I went on a health and wellness journey deeper than I ever have. I studied and received a certification in advanced functional nutrition, and trained with many practitioners and doctors. Being healthy also means a healthy mind. In addition to learning about nutrition, I also studied psychology with extraordinary mind management coaches and mentors. This combination is now translated to how I teach and coach. Our mental and physical balance is so intertwined and the key to living an extraordinary life.
I have learned so much over the last 10 years about myself, health, and our human brain. I have survived cancer, feel strong, have amazing energy, I am fit and happy. My relationship with my kids is amazing. I have a lot to be thankful for. I now have tools to get me the results I want so I can be the best version of myself, and I’m grateful to be able to share them with others.
I learned willpower doesn’t work, because of the conscious and subconscious thoughts we have about ourselves and our bodies. Since we all have a human brain we will continue to struggle. My journey continues.....
I love coaching moms and busy women who are open to a simple model of wellness. Women who do not have time yet give to so many.
As your weight loss and holistic practitioner, I take two approaches:
1) We look at what you are eating, we make tweaks, I give you tools that give you amazing and powerful insight to lose weight simply and easily - for good.
2) We look at the obstacles and habits that get in your way to get the results you want.
When we transform our health and our body to function at a vital level we do not obsess about food. Emotional eating is eating for any reason other than fueling your body. I help you create an eating plan that actually works for you. IF you follow this program it will work long term. It works with your whole life.
No one is going to give you more time each week. No one is going to make you happy, No one is going to take off the weight you have. Before you know it, another year has flown by and you are at the same place you are right now, and maybe heavier. This is the time to invest in yourself: your body and your mental health!
I have served and guided 100’s of clients through this journey. I want to share with you what I have learned and how I can help you.
