"Before I met Jessica, I felt like I was drowning in self-loathing thoughts and behaviours. For years I felt like I was stuck with no hope. I heard several other coaches speak before I heard Jessica, and what stood out to me was her selfless desire to help. Her attitude kindled the faith I needed to invest in myself with her 3-month one-on-one program, and it is the best gift I have ever given myself. By the end of the program, I significantly improved my mindset, to a point where I look at myself in the mirror every morning and sincerely believe it when I tell myself I love me: a complete 180 from that first time I heard her speak. I continue to work with Jessica, because she cares about my progress towards living a life I truly love. With her coaching, I'm staying on track with habits to manifest my best life, and showing up better through life's challenges, instead of falling back in to old familiar habits. I feel so happy and grateful for her coaching, because it changed my life!"

“Before working with Jessica, I had been on and off diets for years. I was tired of not being able to consistently manage my weight despite obsessing about what I was eating and how much I weighed.
I knew I needed help following through with my health goals because what I was doing was not working. The event that really led to me signing up with True to You was when I tried to put clothes on that I had worn the previous summer and found that despite my efforts, the majority of them did not fit.
Since following Jessica’s guidance and the True to You method, I have dropped three pant sizes and I fit my favourite clothes again! I have lost weight, but I no longer feel compelled to weigh myself at all. Working with Jessica required me to get real and answer some hard questions that really took me for a deep dive into my thought processes, personal life and the internal barriers to success that had been holding me back for so long.
Not only was I able to change what I was eating, but I also changed how I was eating – something I had not considered prior to contacting Jessica. Learning to slowly change my habits into ones that align with my overall goals has made the biggest difference not only in my health, but within my life as a whole!”

"First, let me introduce myself. I am a seventy year old woman and have been married for fifty years. I have been retired for three years now and love every minute of it. Over the years I have always seemed to struggle with my weight. Up and down. Tried every diet, every program with no lasting success. I am five foot two and when I met Jessica I weighed 149 pounds. I now weigh 120 pounds and have never felt better. Let me tell you my story.....
I have now been working with Jessica for five months and the difference in me, both emotionally and physically is almost hard to put into words. You see, when in first met Jessica, I was all about numbers and I would do anything to get that number. I weighed myself every day and judged myself according to the number that appeared on the scale. I would eat for that goal number and paid no attention to the nourishment and health of my body or mind. Let me share an example of this with you. For almost a year I ate three meals a day each consisted of a half a cup of yogurt, an apple and eight raw almonds. Yes, you read right. Did I get my coveted number to appear on the scale? Yes, I did. However, I was also passing out, sick to my stomach most nights and extremely unhappy. Then my mom passed away and I turned to food for comfort. Again, not healthy food and I gained everything back plus more. I had no self worth and no self confidence. I felt alone even though I am married to a great man. I knew I had to do something and fast.
I first met Jessica in a group setting and I just knew that she was someone I could work with on a deeper level. I knew I needed guidance and support if I was to get my health back on track. So I started both Life Coaching and Fitness Coaching. And after just Four months, I have that number but you know what....that number isn’t important anymore. With Jessica’s support and genuine caring I have been on am amazing journey of self awareness and health. I have met myself for the first time and I can truly say I really like who I am on the inside. Jessica helped me to identify and work through childhood issues and self doubt challenges that were stored very deep. Did it take hard work and major commitment....yes. Did it hurt and cause many tears to fall...yes. Was it worth the work and the pain.....oh yes!!!
During this period, we also worked on my body’s health. I learned to eat for energy and nutrition. I learned to move for fitness and flexibility. I learned to love my body and love myself. I now eat more food in a day than I would have eaten in a week and I feel great. I learned to listen to my body and give it what it needed to be nourished and the rewards have been gigantic. The more I ate healthy food, worked through my emotions and learned proper movements, the more the weight just fell off. My biggest learn was that my mind and body health is how I feel, not a number. I now weigh myself once a week, if I remember, because often I don’t. The number just isn’t important anymore. I go by how I feel. I listen to my body. I pay attention to my emotions. I am proud of myself, inside and out. And yes, I did the work...but I would never have been able to find my strength to go down these paths without the guidance and support from Jessica. She listens, she cares and she has the knowledge to bring you through to the other side. The side where you will find both physical and emotional health. Is my journey finished...no. But I am totally confident that I will have continued success and I will be working with Jessica now and in my future. If I have one thing to say to anyone who is reading this, it would be..don’t wait. Call Jessica today. You are worth it. Your health is worth it.
I thank you Jessica from the bottom of my heart, mind and spirit. You are amazing and I treasure you as my Coach but also as my Friend.
