We have learned a lot. The focus was on simple healthy life changes that can
sustain a happy healthier life. Both girls are making better choices and
view food differently. Thank you Kim!!
What I personally appreciate about Kim is she listens. I asked her to keep me disciplined and accountable and she does just that.
Kim takes the employer investment very seriously and provides, above and beyond, service.
Along came Kim Laughlin who I met with to discuss my goals about losing weight, what I was not willing to give up, and Kim came up with a plan for me. Each week for the next 12 weeks, I met with Kim to discuss my eating plan,things that worked and things that didn’t. At first, I was taught small steps in regards to changing my eating patterns and was given recipes that worked for me and my lifestyle. Before I knew it, my body started to change. The bloat was slipping away and my energy level was increasing while making simple changes to my diet.
What I quickly realized is that the way I eat was my issue. I needed to be educated about food combinations, reading labels, and SUGAR. Each week, Kim educated me about a healthy eating lifestyle. She never gave me too much information. Just enough info to not get overwhelmed but enough to continue to make positive changes in my life.
As time went on, Kim asked me about my overall health and well-being. During this time, I was going through a great deal of stress at work dealing with a very toxic situation with some colleagues. Kim uses a very holistic, non-judgemental approach. She has a vast wealth of information and takes into account stressors that can sabotage your overall health. During our numerous discussions, she gave me sound advice regarding my work situation and a way to deal with the toxic situation with my colleagues.The outcome gave me the freedom I needed. Now, after 3 months, I am in the best shape of my life physically, mentally, and emotionally. My life has been simplified, my healthy eating habits are turning into a healthy eating lifestyle, I am aware of how stress can sabotage all my gains, and I am no longer willing to allow outside stress to take over my life again.
What started out as hiring Kim to help me lose weight turned into my greatest triumph. I have learned to control all aspects of my life and I couldn’t have done it without Kim’s professionalism, knowledge regarding overall health, support, and insight all within a very open, noncritical approach to eating and life. I will be forever grateful to Kim for giving me my life back. I am a totally different person on the inside and out. Thank you, Kim, for believing in me.
Passionate, caring, knowledgeable are some of the words that come to mind when I reflect on Kim and how she has helped me over the past month or so. I’ve worked with many people in the health/nutrition industry regarding some of my issues with weight and eating and I have never come across anyone as dedicated to their work as Kim is.
I was shocked when Kim contacted me two days after our initial consultation to check in with me. I remember saying to myself, “Wow, this person really cares about my nutrition and well- being. I’m not just another case or client. She truly understands and gets it.”
As a matter of fact, Kim always checks in with me a few days after our phone conversation. I don’t remember anyone ever going above and beyond to help me like Kim has. And I can tell that she really does enjoy helping and educating me and others to become healthier. I appreciate the fact that Kim is so articulate and approaches my concerns in small steps.
Staying focused on a few things at a time, knowing that inundating me with too many things would only scare me away. Her positive attitude and her patience have made me want to try harder and become healthier both inside and out.
After countless visits to the pediatrician and Boston Children’s Hospital for my son, Max’s, severe stomach pain, I was left in the dark with no answers and thousands in medical bills. Feeling frustrated, hopeless and terrified that this was our new reality in an out of control situation I called Kim.
I saw her Facebook post on her business and thought maybe I could find help where I was finding nothing but prescription pills and tests that show nothing from pediatricians. I fully trusted that doctors could figure this out and get us back on track, but I was so wrong. I was told he was constipated and to give him medication once a day for a year, I was told acid reflux with constipation which now would be three medications for a year, then I was told to add another medication plus Tylenol for the pain.
On one rainy weekend when my husband had to sleep with our 8 year old all night while he cried and pleaded for help, I had enough and called Kim. Kim came to my house on that Sunday and listened as I ran down our list of problems. She got right to work and placed Max on an exclusionary diet. Right away I noticed a difference. No more pain, no more not wanting to eat, no more worry.
Max went from doubled over in pain to running out to play baseball and asking to eat. I had my answer. This was not a medical disease that was out of my control and needed doctor intervention. This was diet. Diet that I could control. Diet that turned Max back into the playful active kid he once was. Now I am on the second week and finding out that egg yolks hurt his stomach and fake sugar gives him headaches and acid reflux.
It is just the beginning of the journey, but I now know I am in control of this ride. Not the doctors, not a disease, but me. That is the best (insert expletive here) feeling in the whole world. It can only get better from here. I can’t thank Kim enough for giving me that control back.
