Hello! I'm Stacie :)

I have struggled with my weight for the last 5 years, and it seems like every time I jump on the scale it just gets higher and higher. I began to lose weight successfully when I learned I have a sensitivity to gluten (which was causing inflammation, joint and muscle pain and extreme fatigue) and cut gluten out of my diet. That was almost 2 years ago now and since healing my intestines I have been able to handle small amounts of gluten...but my weight disagrees with that! Since eating gluten again I can feel the weight come back, I just didn't realize how much was coming back! I am now heavier than I have ever been, weighing in at 215.6 pounds.

My weight and vitality is important to me, but it also has an effect on my work. I am a Registered Holistic Nutritional Consultant (RHN for short) and how I look effects how clients perceive me. So for myself, my business and my clients, I need to get my health and life in order!

Personal Information:
I'm Stacie, a 25 year old Maritimer! I studied holistic nutrition and graduated as a Registered Holistic Nutritional Consultant in 2013, run my own holistic health business and am an Independent Arbonne Consultant. I am also about to start a new journey by going to school for addictions and mental health counselling! Some days it seems like I never stop, and I'm just fine with that!

I have a passion for reading, writing and getting creative in the kitchen.

There are a lot of health concerns in my family and I want to avoid them and live the healthiest, happiest life I can! My father believed (and reminded me often) that I have the strength to do anything. I know I can lose this weight, and I know that I will!


Other Information:
I strongly believe that having a balance in life is important. When things are out of balance, chaos comes so balance can be gained once more.

Body, Mind and Spirit in balance makes a happy, healthy person!

    Hey girl, Hope you're having a good week so far, here we are almost at the end if that means anything to you, YAY!! I didn't walk yesterday but I did pretty good on nutrition, however, I really need to start tracking again on here. Today I am feeling super super motivated and happy because I'm about to be an aunt again,. my sis in law is in labor right now so it'll only be a few more hours..I am really excited to see a tiny new baby girl..I want a girl pretty bad, hoping that's what I have next. I know I'll feel very motivated to work harder when I see her, because I want to be at a healthy weight when my hubby n I start trying again..He saw a pic that someone had tagged me in on facebook, a skinny pic I should say, as I was about 130 lbs in that one, and 14% body fat..I want that back..he said I almost look sick..I did not..he's just not used to seeing me with such a slim face. So I feel like I could run 5 miles after seeing that...I hope you are feeling a huge wind of motivation too..We will get past this someday and realize that it doesn't fix all problems, but it sure does help! Hope you have a good day :) emoticon

    Hey girl, hope you are having a good day. I'm trying to get up n get ready to walk..my husband makes fun of me because I HAVE to take a shower before I leave the house, even if I'm just going to walk or get hot n sweaty anyway..so I've got to hop in the shower, then go to the herbalife shop here in town n let the woman weigh and measure me..I don't want to know my measurements really as they will just depress me..but the accountability will be good for me.... to know I have to go back in a week n measure again, therefore I need to get to work!! I guess I better hurry as they close soon. Ill have to write you back later. HAVE A GREAT DAY!

    Hey stacie how are you today? YAAAYY for geminis! I agree that in the end it will be the heathy eating and exercise that will last.. I am glad you are sticking with the plamn again. You deserve it! I don't know how I can feel so high in the workout/healthy eating routine for months and the fall off again. How did I let it happen? All I know is I can go back to it and do it again..and I will. Thanks for the kind and encouraging words. You're right at least I did lose some weight over the year, so I am thankful for that. And I have managed to keep it pretty much off, so I'm feeling optimistic and perky about it now..I am ready. I don't think I'll make it in time today but tomorrow I will go by and let the lady at the herbalife shop weigh and measure me..I'll go every week n let them do that so I can see the results in inches not just pounds. It will keep me on track more. I am ready to accept change with open arms!! Have a great day stacie! Keep your chin up and your body moving! We can do it :) emoticon

    Hey girl I missed talking to you to..still on the same old struggle here..but working on it. After a very successful (-9.2 in one week)but loooooong week on the hcg diet, I decided I would rather do just diet and exercise, because I ate of thing, literally, off the protocol-i had one tbs of rice in my soup the other day- and I got a severe headache and diarrhea. while others had reported similar issues, none were as bad as mine..ugh..so I decided it wasn't worth it. I knew I wouldnt last 6 weeks on that without messing up so with consequences like that, I think I'd rather just lose slower doing regular healthy eating and exercise. I am a little bummed today because I realized that I started SP last feb or march..and here I am, still fat. It's such a battle. On the other hand, I do weigh 30 lbs less than I did then..now I just have to keep going. I'm going to make myself another challenge, but this time it will be focused and measured by how many fitness minutes instead of how much weight i'm losing week to week..i think that will work a lot better. I am determined to be in an 8 at least by my birthday, which is june 10, so i have about 3 months. I wear a size 12 now, so hopefully two pant sizes in 3 months won't be that hard!! Geez I'd give anything to have the confidence I used to have when I was a lil size 4...but wishing won't get me anywhere..so here I go again. I'm proud to see you have stayed pretty much on track, you are doing an awesome job!!! Keep up the hard work stacie! Soon we'll be chatting about our skinny clothes and maintenance! emoticon
