“In 30+ years of trying everything to control my weight and bouncing from obese to fat to severely obese, it never occurred to me that a successful weight control lifestyle could come from knowledge about your own biology, reasonable exercise and a coach to catch me when I want to wallow in the hopelessness of being fat. Sandra Christensen offers the most reasonable, doable and successful weight loss I have ever experienced. Truth in—health out.”
“Sandra’s compassionate care is helping me reconnect with the very best part of myself. It’s powerful to be reclaiming the beautiful part of who I am. I am reconnecting with my body and am practicing excellent self-care. It is helpful to have her as a guide.”
“I always thought that bad eating + no exercise = being fat, and that it was the sign of a character flaw. I’ve learned that the equation is far more complex. Realizing that there were so many other factors that led to my obesity has given me the tools to lose weight. It certainly isn’t easy, but it hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be.”
“Sandra took me beyond the typical discussion of better diet and improved eating, down a path of self-discovery, ultimately leading to root causes and greater personal understanding. Today, I have a solid knowledge base from which I can develop better habits for a healthier life. I’ve had many “aha” moments along the way and am more aware of the powerful forces that influence my eating choices – putting me back in control. I’ve kept the weight off – it’s truly sustainable weight loss.”
“I’ve struggled with weight problems most of my life. When I was younger it was easy to take off pounds and with my lifestyle it was pretty easy to put them back on and then some. As I aged it became increasingly difficult to lose weight and even easier to gain it back. Since 2005 I had become extremely overweight and started to experience many health problems associated with being overweight, not to mention the low self-esteem and eventually falling into depression and just didn’t have that great of an outlook on life anymore.
Then in March of 2011 I met Sandra and during my initial consultation I was finding renewed hope that I didn’t have to live like this anymore and that I could take my life back, if I made the commitment to do so. Can I say (without sounding too cliché) Sandra had me at hello! Seeing and working with her has changed my life! Her guidance, support, understanding of ME, and non-judgmental approach, has helped me face the many challenges of losing weight and keeping it off.
It’s not a diet but rather a lifestyle change. My commitment to this challenge has reversed my type 2 diabetes, I no longer suffer with metabolic syndrome and my entire outlook on life has changed for the better! I even learned to like myself again and that has been huge for me. I don’t beat myself up mentally anymore! To date I have lost almost 75 pounds, well on my way to my goal of 100 and my waist has dropped 10 sizes!
If you are serious about losing weight and you want to get your life back, I invite you to try this program. It really works! Over the last year I have referred several friends to her that are enjoying some of the same successes that I have. I owe Sandra, her guidance and her program a great deal of gratitude. While she is appreciative of the compliments she has a habit of turning the credit back to you, as you are the one doing the work! Maybe so, but I could not have done this without her commitment to help people like me learn to love myself enough to want to make a difference not only in my health, but in my life!”
“Sandra is a top-notch collaborative colleague. Her evaluations and treatment plans are extremely thorough and clear. Her recommendations are practical and effectively tailored to individual clients. Clients have told me how much they value her expertise as well as her warmth and personal connection. She is a great communicator and makes it easy to coordinate our work with mutual clients.”
