How Wellpower Method Goes Beyond Just Weight Loss...

Alyssa L, 37, mom of two twin daughters, full-time teacher and pregnant from Upton, MA

Main goal(s): I’d like to feel good in my clothes – excited to go out with my husband or meet up with friends. Sometimes I avoid this or don’t look forward to it because I feel embarrassed or crappy about myself and how I look. I’ve missed out on experiences because of this. I want a long-term healthy relationship with food, food freedom and overall confidence with my physical appearance. I need help with where intuitive eating meets portion control meets balanced meals. With that relationship, I want (in time) sustainable weight loss. Like I mentioned above, with weight loss I think I’ll enjoy my life a little more because I’m hoping it won’t be at the forefront of my mind. I want to love my body and appreciate it for all that it is, not that it isn’t. I want to take care of it so that I can model that authentically for my kids. I want to feel proud of my body and stop looking for the next quick fix. 

Where were you before starting the program nutritionally?

Before working with Gabby, I was a classic yo-yo dieter who had tried every diet and program known to man. I was uncomfortable in my own skin and out of control with my eating and wellness habits. I constantly felt tired and unmotivated, and lived by the phrase, “the diet starts Monday.”

Talk about your wins since starting the program

Where do I begin?! I’ve really learned that small, manageable changes in daily habits lead to both big and small wins, and I’ve learned to celebrate the small wins. I’ve stopped beating myself up about presumed failures. I think my biggest takeaway is my self- awareness, growth with regards to self-control, and overall relationship with food.

What would you tell a person if they were thinking about joining Wellpower Method?

Do it and do it now! Don’t wait! Gabrielle is an incredible coach. She’s with you every step of the way and is so responsive to anything and everything you need. She tailors a plan that is specific to your needs and encourages you in a way that is so positive and motivating, while providing you with the tools you need to be successful in the long run. I was scared to put myself out there, but I’m so grateful to be a part of Gabby’s work and Wellpower community.

Main goal(s): Balance my hormones/immune system and increase energy and metabolism (food), get rid of my mental fog. Feel comfortable in my body again. Get normal feelings back. I want signals from my body- I feel numb. I want my life and body back so I can enjoy my Life and be happy!

Where were you before starting the program nutritionally?

I was exhausted, eating in the middle of the night, had restless leg syndrome, was very cranky, couldn’t concentrate, stressed out, foggy brain, and never satisfied with eating! I felt lousy, and was never sleeping and had no energy! I was only eating the same foods and skipping meals. I never thought about feeding my body correctly a priority.

What would you tell a person if they were thinking about joining Wellpower Method?

This is the best program I have ever done! Gabrielle is a wealth of knowledge and a great teacher. She has taught me the root cause to all my nagging, wits end health ailments and helped me to heal through eating good food. She taught me that here is no such thing as bad food — once you learn to balance your macro and micro nutrients. This program teaches you about everything — from whole body connection to getting all your vitamins and minerals in daily while accomplishing your own personal goal of either losing, gaining, or maintaining your weight. I eat more now that I have ever eaten and I’m healthy! Mens sana in corpore sano — A health mind in a healthy body.
