Welcome! I’m Amy Lanci

a certified health coach for you--the tired, guilt-driven woman who wants to quit listening to her inner critic and stop burying her feelings in food so you can lose the stubborn pounds, reconnect with what makes you happy and love the person you see in the mirror.

Right now I’m sure you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and undeserving. You know something needs to change but you can’t, because you’re so hard on yourself. Seeking everyone’s approval is INGRAINED in your nature. Meanwhile, the pounds continue to creep up as you start to lose touch with who YOU are and what makes YOU happy. Sound familiar?

You know what? I get it. I’ve been there. 

For the longest time, I sought approval from everyone--my family, my friends, my roommates, the guys I dated and even my teachers and supervisors. I was smart and well-rounded because I got good grades despite balancing three other extracurriculars. I liked how I looked on the days someone would compliment me but felt ugly when none of the boys asked me out. I was cool because I would stay up late and eat junk food with my friends despite needing to wake up early to go to school or work the next day. I kept a smile on my face even when I didn’t feel like it, so no one would worry about me.

Saying “no” to people was something I rarely did because I didn’t want to disappoint them.

All of this yielded to my 20 year battle with my weight. At the age of 24, I tipped the scales at 203 pounds (I’m 5’5”) and was diagnosed with fatty liver. First, I cursed my genetics. Then, I proceeded to beat myself up mercilessly. I kept alternating between “Wow, I messed up BIG time” and “Dang, I’m too young for this.”

I finally managed to temporarily escape my self-blame to ask myself some hard questions:

“Can I reverse this? What do I need to do to take better care of myself? Where do I go from here?”

While diving into the internet for answers on nutrition and weight loss, I decided that I needed to take control of my love life. No more waiting around for Prince Charming. No more settling for bozos. I was ready for love on my own terms because I deserved it.

Three months later, I met a man who I could talk to for hours, made me smile from ear to ear and made me feel beautiful. We fell in love and it didn’t matter that I was still 203 pounds. Talk about mind-blowing and throwing old mindsets out the window!

 

Things started to change. I ate better. I moved more. I went to bed earlier. I allowed myself to feel what I needed to feel. I learned how to communicate my thoughts and feelings instead of always bottling them up inside. I was growing more and more passionate about food and exercise. Life was getting better and better. Within the first 6 months, I dropped 10 pounds without even trying. Over the next 5 years, I lost another 50 pounds and got my liver back into tip-top shape.

Me and the hubby (Present Day)

We have now been married for almost 5 years and have a beautiful little girl after a surprisingly easy “fit pregnancy”.

Now I continue to stay “in tune” with myself by prioritizing my self care (despite my busy schedule) because I know how important it is for my confidence, my health and my overall emotional well-being. I’ve never been happier.

I believe that changing mindset and emotional-wellbeing is the KEY to long-lasting weight loss results and ultimate health. Fad diets, crazy supplements and one-dimensional nutrition and exercise programs barely scratch the surface. True change needs to start from deep within.

I want this for you because you are worthy of living the life you want and you deserve it just as much as everyone else.

My weight loss didn’t start because of my husband. It started because I KNEW I deserved the kind of love I always dreamed of and I finally had the balls to jump on what was truly going to make me happy. Because of that, I ended my 20 YEAR weight struggle. It was a long road but I’m living proof that its never too late to change.

Imagine a life where you can...

  • Forgive yourself and let go of the guilt
  • Make the distinction between loving food and finding comfort in food.
  • Be able to get that precious “me time” on a consistent and regular basis
  • Feel energized, happy and productive
  • Feel better in your clothes
  • Love the person looking back at you in the mirror.

Enough about me, it’s time we focus on you. Are you ready to say “yes” to you and finally say “no” to what’s really ailing you? You don’t have to go through this alone. Let’s work together to figure this all out!
