I’m Kristen Roby Garcia with certifications as a Master Certified Health Coach, Transformational Mindset and Life Coach and a bachelor’s in Psychology I know a thing or two about the mind and body connection. After being fairly healthy my whole life, I was completely dumbstruck when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s (a thyroid condition), Rheumatoid Arthritis and Depression in 2012 at the not so old age of 37. I was also the heaviest and unhappiest I had ever been in my life and my marriage was crumbling. I was looking to food for comfort, like I had done so many times in my life, but now those habits were literally robbing me of what I wanted most…health and happiness.
When the doctor handed me a bunch of prescriptions and told me to see him in 6 months, it all became very, very real. The ways I had been coping with the stress, anxiety and overwhelm in my life, which mainly included food and alcohol, were no longer serving me. I knew something needed to change and I knew that change needed to be me!
Through making small, impactful changes over time, my body was able to heal itself naturally, I was able to lose weight and feel good in those jeans again! I now maintain my weight and haven’t been sick since 2012. I never got on any prescriptions, that’s right, I threw those things in the trash! But it all started with my thinking! As I was able to also make shifts in my thoughts and beliefs around my experiences, around food, around my body, I was able to transform my life and my health. I now have a healthy relationship with my body, I LOVE food and don’t feel guilty about what I eat. I have complete and total food peace and freedom and I love the skin I am in!
I am grateful and overjoyed to help women to transform their lives through my workshops, courses and private coaching by educating and empowering them. I believe every woman deserves to feel good in their jeans and have a healthy and enjoyable relationship with food. I also help women to see the immense impact that we have in our community and families. I believe every woman is the heart of her home and together we can change the world, one woman, one mom, one grandmother, one wife, one sister or one friend at a time.
