I haven’t always looked like this you know. Back in 2014 I was obese (and official yo-yo dieter since 1999, no joke!) and unhappy about the way I looked and felt. Something really had to change because I was sick and tired of all the diet attempts. On January 2nd, 2015 I decided: it was now or never!

There had to be a way to reach my weight loss goals, right?! I decided to play the long run game (because lets be real, all those diets only give you short term results + interest because after a while you’ll be weighing even more then when you started that diet). This time I was going to do it differently so I started working on MYSELF, on my habits, my behaviour, … my MINDSET.

I didn’t only start a weight loss journey but also a personal development journey. And… it WORKED! Within 14 months I lost 55 pounds, made a true lifestyle change and not only did I get myself a brand new wardrobe makeover…I also got a MINDSET MAKEOVER!



So, how can I help you?

The POWER method

My POWER method is a personal development method for women that want to stop dieting and lose the weight they want by making a successful lifestyle & mindset change. Because let’s face it: you don’t need (or want!) another diet, like the ones before that didn’t help you at all.

Diets never gave me long term results, but working on my mindset changed my whole world. So here I am, proudly presenting my own POWER method that I developed after my own weight loss & mindset change journey. I want to be here for you teaching everything I know about the process that made me a better, healthier and happier person. Every letter of the word POWER stands for an important part of your change:

The P stands for Plan
O for Overcome
The W stands for Willpower & Winner’s Mentality
E for Emotion & Energy
And last but not least, the R stands for your Results which you’ll totally get when you follow all the steps!

It’s my passion to help other women like my old self. The difference between my old and new me is huge. Not only physically but also mentally I feel so much better than before and therefore it’s my mission to help other amazing women, like you!

About You

You’ve got it all figured out: a thriving career, a beautiful home, lovely friends & family, doing the things you love,… but health-wise you’re not where you want to be (yet!). You have tried your umpteenth diet but you’ve given up yet again, and now you weigh more than ever which affects your mental state, a lot.

You know something has to change. You feel you don’t belong in the body you’re in. You recognize your size is holding you back from living Your Best Life. Your weight is literally weighing you down – physically and mentally. The person you want to be is in there – and I will help you reach the healthy & happy you by working on your mindset!

No more crazy diets. Let’s focus on you, your mindset and your behaviour and let the magic happen! You’ve got this. I’ve been there and – this sounds soooo cliche – if I can do this, so can you!
