AN ASPIRING MINIMALIST
Heather spent years creating TV ads designed to convince people that they needed to purchase her client’s latest innovation to be happy. Feeling the years slipping by, and eager for more meaning, she discovered minimalism, a powerful pathway toward intentionality.
Close to 10 years ago, Heather left the corporate world to pursue her dream of helping women tackle their clutter, un-complicate their lives, and lose weight for good. Today, as a board-certified coach and expert in behavior change, and feeling more fit and energetic at 47 than at 27, she guides her clients toward weight-loss breakthroughs by helping them clear the clutter—in their minds, bodies, and homes—so that they can live lives they love, too.
My mission is to help you design and create a lighter life.
GAINING WEIGHT INSTEAD OF LOSING IT
For years I didn’t like how I looked or felt. When I was 17 a coach told me that I needed to lose weight if I wanted to be competitive. It hurt, but he was right. I had put on weight over the winter and it was going to impact my performance. The weight came off, but came back on quickly. In college, I put more weight on while I was actively trying to lose it. I had a LOT of FOMO for my favorite foods (frankly, I had FOMO for everything) and the scale seemed to always be stuck. Years later I had a light bulb moment and realized that I had been overcomplicating things.
I intentionally got rid of a bunch of physical, mental and emotional clutter, shed what was holding me back, and today I’m so much happier with my much lighter life.
HOW I UNCOMPLICATED MY LIFE
I started journaling and the more I wrote, the more it became clear that I wanted a simpler, lighter life. The following essays, drawn from my blog, give an up-close view of my personal wellness and weight loss journey.
