Coach Tam’s Story

Who I am today is NOT who I have always been

Not long ago, I was buckling under the pressure of everything that was going wrong in my life…

  • Bad relationships
  • Stalled career
  • Finances in shambles
  • Spiritually disconnected
  • Mentally drained
  • and emotionally bankrupt

…and the girl who grew up wearing special “slim” jeans ballooned to 265 pounds, seemingly overnight.

Now on the outside looking in, it would be easy to think that I was…

  • Lazy
  • Didn’t care about my looks
  • Didn’t value my health
  • But that was the furthest thing from the truth!

I wanted to change. I just didn’t know how. Losing weight and keeping it off was hard.

Once, I experienced some success – losing 40 pounds in 5 months for a friend’s wedding – but not long after the big day, I lost my motivation and the pounds started to creep back on. I decided there was no hope for me and gave up. I thought “this is just too hard.”

But one day in December of 2007 everything changed. I went to the doctor for what I thought would be a routine physical. That was anything but routine. My doctor’s words shook me to my core.

After some serious soul searching, it finally clicked.

By the following October, I had lost a total of 100+ pounds, without:

  • Surgery
  • Diet Pills
  • Shakes or juicing
  • Expensive supplements
  • Extreme workouts
  • or even hiring a Personal Trainer

It wasn’t easy but it was definitely worth it.

Plus, past October, I celebrated 12 years of maintenance, something most people will tell you is impossible.
When I look at my old photos and then look in the mirror, I’m amazed…and thankful.

Thankful that…

  • I can walk into a room with my head held high
  • I’m no longer ashamed of how I look
  • I can walk up several flights of stairs without being winded
  • I can get out of my car without pain
  • I can do fun things like whitewater rafting and zip lining

My life is totally different! Oh, and my career and income took off too.

Packed up and relocated to a new city in 14 days

  • 5 big promotions
  • Salary more than doubled
  • Earned my MBA
  • Became a certified fitness professional and health coach
  • Published a book
  • Started my own business
  • and much, much more

When things turned around for me, I vowed to dedicate my life to helping others. I share my “success secrets” in my book “265 Point”, in local and online fitness programs, and audiences nationwide through public, private, and corporate seminars and events. I can’t wait to work with you!
