No one knows what goes on behind closed doors. Isn't that the truth? When I walked into Peak Physique Transformation Center for the first time 3 1/2 years ago, I was a mess internally, emotionally and mentally. Everyone always thought I had it all put together. I looked the part on the outside. I was a fitness instructor for 30 years and swim instructor/coach. Running marathons, and very addicted to exercise. I put on a good front but actually I didn't have it all put together. I was a yo-yo dieter, I was living in a dark cloud, lonely, depressed and so so sad, I felt lost like there was no hope.. I was scared to walk through those doors at Peak Physique the first day feeling anxious and nervous admitting to the Owner/Trainer I was addicted to food, almost like an alcoholic admitting they were addicted to alcohol. I've been to therapy for my so called Eating Disorder and would exercise hours and hours a day to burn the thousands of calories inhaled, driving store to store picking up my favorites. Dr's and therapists put me on 3 different medications saying this should help. That made things worse. Then Ruth came along, my Angel. I count my blessings every day. I trusted in her from the very first day she became a trainer at Peak. I just knew we were going to click . Patient, kind, and oh so gentle. She gave me hope, I asked if we could meet. Little did she know what she was getting into :). Instead of labeling me with an eating Disorder. There wasn't a label just my eating was out of order. (Disordered Eating). I LOVE IT!!!! I was taught the correct tools, food journalling and the importance of water, exercise, sleep, and recovery days. Oh and so much more. We met weekly, Ruth had a way with words like no other. I always left our meetings feeling confident and an extra pep in my step. A peaceful feeling like I was healing and finally am going to be o.k. Today with a smile on my face I can say I live without the 24 hours a day of negative self talk in my head, I'm happy and loving myself again. I have almost stopped my continues emotional eating and bingeing. Don't get me wrong I'm not perfect still a work in progress. But now I have the tools to live a full , happy life. No more medications, food is my med and I am so, so very grateful. Ruth you ROCK!!!!
