Joanie was an AVID “juicer”. Rarely did she eat whole foods. She juiced her fruits and vegetables constantly, and even thought she added protein to these smoothies, she couldn’t lose the weight. She was an avid fitness enthusiast before coming to Shelby. After months of coaching and incorporating whole foods and education to help her continue these habits, Joanie is making tremendous progress! Not only is she losing fat, her joints feel better, and her sleep has incredibly improved. All she had to do was eat more and eat more whole food. She truly has taken charge of her life, setting boundaries, making her health a priority. She even started her own garden and is ALWAYS inspiring others about all that she has learned, so much so that I call her “preacher Joanie”. Love you Joanie, so proud of you my friend!
