Just 4 months later Nora shares her story...

I played with the idea of seeing a nutritionist for years yet never took the opportunity to seek out someone’s guidance until I finally realized I did not want to be in pain every day. I was at the point where getting out of bed and walking down the stair was difficult because of knee pain or bending over to pick something off the floor was painful. I wanted to feel better and I knew I could not without help. I have changed a lot in the past four months and nothing tastes as good as I feel right now.

I was referred to Barb by a coworker and I am very grateful I found someone to help me make life style changes. When I first came to Barb, I had daily body pains, GERD, frequent migraine headaches, and was anti-anxiety medication. I have a rare migraine headache now, am no longer on any medication, and any body pain is from muscle strain from activity – I have pain-free days!

I told Barb that I did not cook and did not like to cook. I used to eat a lot of prepared foods, you know, the ones you heat in a microwave or toss on a cookie sheet and heat in the oven. I was all for the quick and easy route to eating and would often catch myself not tasting or thinking about what I put into my body. Now I cook and prepare my meals and I really enjoy finding new recipes to try! (Now, I dislike washing dishes after cooking instead of cooking itself). I have learned to nurture my body with proteins, and fresh fruits and vegetables. I found my “foggy” head in the morning and after meals no longer takes over and I have so much more energy now than I did four months ago.

I take the time to taste my food now, to think about what I am eating. I no longer just eat because the food is there and I often have to stop an activity to remind myself to eat instead of mindlessly eating, and eating handfuls of food.

One of the top things I have learned about myself is that I do not have to “eat” to enjoy life. At work, there seems to be a continuous influx of junk food – cupcakes, cookies, chips, candy, donuts – I feel good that I do not even want to eat these things anymore. Why should I eat these “foods” when I do not want them? Why put them in my body when I know it would make me feel bad afterwards? People have offered these foods to me and I have politely declined and pulled out an apple to eat instead.

Another thing that was helpful on my life-changing voyage was to write down everything that I ate or drank. I hold myself accountable when writing things down – even the no-so-healthy foods. There are only a few times I have strayed from the program Barb had me on yet the next meal, I was able to get back on track and continue my journey. I am grateful for the changes I have made in my eating habits and for Barb’s coaching. I am grateful for my pain-free days!

  • "My Experience with Goshorn Wellness Center has been outstanding! I worked with Barb Goshorn and followed her advice for the Shape ReClaimed program. Not only did I lose weight, but I reduced my medications and my arthritis pain is minimal. I feel great!!"

  • "HI! I'm writing on behalf of my husband Bob who I "dragged" to see Barb on the referral of a friend at work. My husband has been overweight for years with no continued success on diets. He started the shape reclaim program and has lost almost 100 pounds in 8 months - AMAZING!!!! He looks and feels so much better! He is currently off ALL medications! And the best part - he doesn't snore anymore! With Barb's help we learned how to grocery shop and read labels, how to cook and eat healthy. Barb is so enthusiastic and supportive. The entire office is very friendly and professional. Meet Barb and change your life!"

  • "I can’t thank Barb enough for all her assistance in helping me achieve my goal weight!

    I never thought I would get back down to the 120”s! I had tried everything that was out there. I had a drawer full of useless weight loss products that probably sis me more harm that good, not to mention I spent a lot of money on them, all of which was a total waste!

    Not only is Barb a delight to talk to, I have learned so much from her as to how to eat, what to eat and when to eat. Even my husband lost 20 pounds just by following my new found healthy eating habits!

    Thank you Barb!!"
