Here's to celebrating the many lives made healthier with the help of the TFS Team, our own personal victories, and the involvement we have in the wonderful community we live in, here in the pines.

"Menopause, it was not a “walk in the park” for me! It was more like traveling down a rocky, winding road in the back of a runaway wagon! For the life of me, I could never figure out how to “embrace it” as many books advised. I had to overcome many struggles through the process, but happily, the road did eventually even out. I got through it and you can too, trust me."

“When I was 9, my body changed. There was trauma in my family life and my dependence upon food as a coping mechanism began. It took me years to realize that I had developed addictive behaviors toward food. It was a reward, but it was also something I used to "punish" myself. The "well, I'm going to be fat anyway" rationale was a common thought. I didn't think it was possible for me to be lean and fit. It took me the whole decade of my 20's to find balance in my lifestyle. The process is slow, but so worth it. I don't have self-destructive habits anymore. I love my body, everyday. Be patient with yourself. Change is possible.”

"Fitness never came easy to me. I really had to work at it. When I first started, I couldn't even run a mile, but I kept at it. I had some rough and embarrassing stumbles along the way (as you can see), but eventually, I fell in love with exercise. I truely believe that once a person dedicates himself to being consistent, he will learn what works for his body and lifestyle. Being healthy and living an active lifestyle will then become second nature. I love helping people find their personal recipe for health."
