Hi! I'm Emily. I am so excited to have you here.
All my life, I've been an athlete and active. However, for the past 3 years, I have been recovering from an ACL tear and reconstructive surgery, and am really just beginning to return to activity at the level I had before the injury.
It's been a long, and frustrating, process. Through the years after the injury, I learned I had other subsequent traumas. My SI joint was out and my right hip rotated too much forward. The muscles along my whole right side weren't working together. My right hip was usually burning, and my lower back spasming.
Activity caused me more pain, and the thought of simply going for a walk had me totally depressed. Some days, I just didn't care anymore and soothed myself with donuts. Other days I was angry at the world because I couldn't be as active as I wanted to be. I was a physical, mental and emotional mess. Food and depression were taking over, and I found myself 30 pounds over weight, my health spinning out of control.
I knew, deep down, the road I was on was not going to end well. I was curious to see how my body was responding to what I was eating, so I decided to try a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) for a month in January 2021. Seeing the results right there in front of me was shocking. It was not good. My blood sugar was up and down all day, sometimes at night, and I was now concerned. I knew I would need to change what I was eating, but the thought of going on a "diet"? Yuck!
In February, I came upon a program called WILDFIT, mostly by accident, but now I'm convinced it was a Divine Intervention. Right away, I knew there was something different about it. What drew me into the program was the fact that there was no exercise requirement. I was grateful for that, because everything hurt. I always believed exercise was the way to weight loss (calories in, calories out mentality). I had no idea how important nutrition and food is to the process.
What I didn't know is that this would be the easiest program I'd ever done, and I'd end up learning more about wellness, nutrition and real health than I did in 16 years as a RN.
My own, and my husbands' transformation was amazing (see below), and I was blown away at the physical and emotional transformations of my 2000+ challenge-mates from around the world. I was watching people lose weight, reverse auto-immune disorders/diabetes/thyroid issues, and go off/reduce meds. It was at this point I knew there was something very special going on here. That's when I decided to pursue becoming a coach for this amazing program.
My greatest wish is to share what I have learned to help you transform your life and your health. WILDFIT shattered my patterns and old ways of thinking about food and wellness, and it can for you too. It’s a program that provides a priceless education in personal empowerment, nutrition, and teaching your body to work for you. WILDFIT sets you up on the human diet, 90 days of structured transformation, and then gives you framework to create a lifestyle of lasting health and vitality.
After reading this, I hope you will take serious consideration in looking at your own health, and book a call with me to talk about how WILDFIT can change your life. Change is 100% possible, and it doesn't have to be hard.
I look forward to working with you!

I began my WildFit journey 30 pounds over weight. Most of my life my weight was consistent, with the exception of the previous 3 years (2018-2021). I kept putting on weight after a knee injury, and I was getting very frustrated. I was extremely active before this injury, and now, every time I tried to exercise, my whole body hurt. This inactivity and frustration led to more eating, and eating things that were definitely not good for my body.
Weight change over 90 days: 176 to 157
Total inches lost: 13 (I didn't measure all the places I was supposed to)
Marco participated in this challenge only because I was in it. Turns out, he became truly involved! He was having bouts of gout 3-4 times a year in his feet, and his knee and low back were bothering him regularly.
Weight change: 253 to 221
Total inches lost: 24.5 (he measured a few more places than I did)
