So easy to work with
I am very grateful for the time, attention and assistance Sharon has given me. She’s open and receptive, gives feedback, insight, tips and encouragement. Just the kind of help I need.
Weight management, healthier perspective
After years of dieting, (you name it I’ve tried it- Atkins, WW, Paleo, Grapefruit, Intermittent Fasting, and numerous other approaches) and after losing and gaining unwanted weight and spending countless hours fretting about food and wellness, I found my way to Lori Lieberman. We started working together and things were going well but I was unfortunately interrupted with a health crisis that had nothing to do with nutrition or food. I said goodbye to Lori after explaining that I had to concentrate on treatment and dealing with a complicated and scary medical situation.
Well, when it was resolved a few years later, I decided to go back and resume my work with Lori. I knew I was not done with my journey of trying to come to peace with food and my weight and now I had an added dimension…. I wanted help with specific nutrition to address my medical issues, combined with wanting to lose weight and do it all while dealing with the remnants of a longstanding stubborn eating disorder.
Luckily, I found myself in the right hands. Enough about me let’s talk about Lori. …First of all , she is smart, compassionate, educated and thoughtful, not to mention, gentle but firm, open, creative and analytical. Also, she looks and is fit and trim and healthy …and bonus…she loves food! She is so joyful about eating and really knows how to rejoice in nourishing herself and enjoying the beauty and pleasures of food (taste, sight, smell and texture) without monkey mind. Her approach is refreshingly holistic and focuses on the whole person and wellness overall. Nothing is black and white. There is room for everything. Lori dug right in to my over lapping goals and set to work on them with me. She even conducted some careful research before our first session when I returned, to answer my questions about optimal nutrition to address my specific medical /nutritional concerns.
In this process, I am trying to be trusting and patient because I realize I have just started on this journey toward a better approach to nutrition and health. One that lets go of shoulds, guilt and overthinking. I am hopeful that with Lori’s patient understanding, informed and thoughtful guidance I will someday be able to enjoy food in a relaxed and sensible way and still achieve my long term goals of fitness, great health and wellness.
To have peace and joy around food and weight and not compulsiveness, restraint and guilt would be a gift. I am betting that Lori will be able to guide me there
A healthy view of food and weight
I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help. I could not have lost the weight without you! I’m really amazed at how easy it was with your guidance. For the first time ever, I feel like I’m in control of my eating habits, and I’m happy with my weight and how I look. I’m amazed that I have made such progress and finally have a healthy view of food and weight. I really appreciate all of your help and support.
I truly feel you have transformed me, my life, my health, my body, my outlook. I will forever be grateful for your guidance, encouragement, and motivation.
Changing habits, losing excess weight
I get asked at least once a week how I lost so much weight. I tell everyone about how you changed my eating habits. I’m down to 140 pounds (total weight loss 49 pounds).
Achieving a healthy weight without dieting
Lori Lieberman has been working with me for two years. Seeking her help was the best decision I have made in a very long time. I have been a yo-yo dieter for most of my adult life with no permanent success. I have tried Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, and my own diets but I always put back all that I lost and more. Lori has shown me how to eat all the foods I like in moderation and without guilt. She has been very patient, supportive, encouraging, and instructive.
I finally feel that I am in control of my eating habits (most of the time) for the first time in my life. And she has taught me not to feel the distructive guilt when I do have a slip. I am now able to acknowledge that I’ve had a bad time and move forward instead of the previous “what the heck, I’ve blown it so I might as well really blow it”.
I could continue endlessly with how Lori’s help has changed my life for the better and how I now have the confidence to keep to my better eating habits for the rest of my life. The final compliment that I will give her is that she has finally convinced me of the value of exercise. I have avoided it actively but now realize the benefits to my physical and mental health. I am very grateful to her for all that she has shown me. I plan to continue working with Lori for quite a long time into the future. Even when I have reached an appropriate weight for my age and height, I want to have her support and ideas to keep me on track. This is the biggest commitment I have made to myself and it has so far been worth every second of thought and planning. I might have lost weight before but I credit Lori with showing me how to sustain it over the last 2 years and into the rest of my life.
