From Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, Jon McLernon, is founder of Freedom Nutrition Coaching. Jon has been a Nanotechnology Researcher, Marine Engineer in the Navy, globetrotting teacher visiting 45 countries on 5 continents, and ran a Nutrition and Supplement store. And now father of a 7-month-old, he is one busy man. After almost being murdered while living in South Africa, his weight ballooned well past 300lbs, as he grappled with PTSD, binge-eating, and self-medicating with food. One morning Jon woke up and decided he didn’t want to be a victim to his trauma and began what he says was the most challenging journey of his life. Although Jon used to live a hyper masculine type of lifestyle, his sensitive and empathetic nature was far better suited to coaching people on their weight loss journey. So how do you sustain weight loss? Jon feels that instead of adding a bunch of rules, he starts creating awareness. He believes weight loss is a doorway to self-love and not a destination.

What started out as an 8 month adventure, turned into 4 years, with no end in sight. What an AMAZING, family life adventure. I mean come on, would you rather read about the Grand Canyon or Death Valley in a book or see, touch and experience it in real life? We all know life is short, so maybe more of us should be like the "Kurm Family" and hit the road of life. I know that I intend to do just that.

Mariah Wolfe (aka Mette Glargaard), for many years Mariah felt restless and was ashamed of it. Instead, she had to move to new places, meet new people, do new things, learn new skills, etc. As she grew older, she understood that she had to love being that way instead of trying to change it.  Today, she is as an author, speaker, therapist, mentor and traveler, simply following any calling that speaks to her heart. In the words of Mariah, "Share, don't give. When you give, you loose what you give. When you share, you let others take part in what is yours. Share yourself, your vulnerability, and your heart. Share it by showing who you are." Books by Mariah Wolfe on Amazon at: https://amzn.to/3cHcnuq If you haven't already SUBSCRIBED to my podcast, please do so.

Ep. 13- Perspective Is Everything
Ep. 13- Perspective Is Everything
Having a positive perspective or mindset is vital, even life changing Let's play a little game called "Perspective" to challenge this theory. Imagine you were born in the year 1900. By the time you enjoy your 85th birthday, you have gone through and survived the following worldly, life altering events: World War I, a Spanish Flu epidemic, the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cuban Missile Crisis (Cold War), etc. Think of everyone born in 1900. How did they survive all that destruction, death, and chaos? Was it luck, perseverance, perspective, or all of the above? Perspective is an amazing gift. As you go about your life, let us try and keep things in perspective. Let us help each other and we will get through anything that life throws at us. Remember, in the history of the world, there has NEVER been a storm that lasted. This too, whatever this is, will pass. If you haven't already SUBSCRIBED to my podcast, please do so.
