*****************************************************You KNOW your potential calls for doing something spectacular, after all, you are a Black woman.  Your history, indeed, the legacy of Black women, is about doing what others think are impossible.  Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, Mary McCleod Bethune, Amy Garvey, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, Shirley Chisholm, and the list of brilliant achievers goes on and on , but you are stuck in a rut.                                                                                                                           

We have found that weight

holds a lot of Sisters back.

No judgment, Just compassion

 

Many Black women are in a rut, not advancing forward with the phenomenal talents, ideas, and thoughts they possess because of the hinderance of weight.  Yet, we all know by now that the weight represents something else. It is essentially emotional and psychological baggage--unaddressed truama-- that you have allowed to attach to your body in unhealthy ways.  As they say, "The body knows."

 

That weight needs to go, right now.  It may have served a purpose before, but it doesn't now.  Your weight hugs you like a ball and chain, and you drag around--it keeps you imprisoned.  It strips away your confidence, your courage, your sense of self; it prevents you from being who you want to be, who you have the ability to be.

 

Meanwhile, you are missing from your life.  STOP kidding yourself!  You shy away from social obligations.  You dread weddings, graduations, baby showers, reunions, company luncheons, outdoor outings, Christmas parties, New Year's Eve, and other important life events.  And you practically run when you see old friends.

 

 

                            STOP HIDING and STOP RUNNING!                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

What are you waiting for?  STOP trying to disappear. Stop being invisible to the people you really want to be with.  Stop playing with your health, your potential, and your future.  Our coaches, who specialize in working with Black women and weight, will help you achieve the greatness that lies dormant in you.   Our communities need your vibrant contribution, so let's get to work!                                                                                                                                                                                                               

 

AGAIN, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

 

Life moves so fast.  It goes by quick. Before you know it, you will look up and life will have passed you by.  Let us help you get your weight, and your life, under control, so you can step out of the "baggage" and into the CONFIDENT woman you were meant to be! Let us help you get your mojo. We want to get you "unstuck," so you can Go Girl.

 

 

Click on our "Contact Us" page (the last tab at the top of this page), and let us set you up for a CONFIDENTIAL phone appointment.  Or, if you are near Chicago or Birmingham, we can arrange an in-person appointment, so we can get acquainted and do the work from there.    

 

 

 

 

                         No judgment, Just compassion. 

 

     Remember, your physical, psychological, and emotional health is EVERYTHING.

"The "educated Negroes" have the attitude of contempt toward their own people because in their own, as well as in their mixed schools, Negroes are taught to admire the Hebrew, the Greek, the Latin, and the Teuton, and to despise the African.  Of the hundreds of Negro high schools recently examined by an expert in the United States Bureau of Education, only 18 offer a course taking up the history of the Negro."

February

Quote of the Month

 

"If you control a man's thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions.  When you determine what a man shall think, you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do.  If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself.  If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door.  He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one."
