LAUREN'S STORY: Getting Off Sugar and Zoloft... Naturally*
Lauren was a professed sugar-holic who couldn't make it one day without binging on candy. She knew the location of every candy shop in the Boston area. She was a nurse working the night shift who needed a lot of energy... not only for work, but also for her upcoming wedding!
We Did Together
We replaced artificial sweeteners, butter sprays, and processed snacks with healthier alternatives... and Lauren noticed an improvement in her workouts immediately. When I suggested that she find ways - other than sugar - to have 'sweetness' in her life, Lauren initiated fun weekend trips with friends, apple picking, and took up knitting again.
When Lauren told me that she really wanted to work the day shift, we role-played the conversation and boosted her confidence so that she'd be ready for the negotiation.
