Meet Certified Health and Life Coach Lisa Haggerty

What is your business and when did it start?

I am a certified health and life coach. I work with people who struggle with weight loss. I help them lose weight without deprivation, so they can feel confident and free. My business started in late 2020 when I received my coaching certificates.

Why did you start your business?

I was overweight my entire adult life. Not only was I heavy, I struggled with body image issues and eating disorders. I was a yo-yo dieter, trapped within diet culture. I tried every weight loss program out there and even spent years in therapy. Absolutely nothing worked long-term. (Note: nothing wrong with therapy if it's right for your needs!) A few years ago, I met a health coach and decided to invest. It was the best decision of my entire life. Not only did I lose my weight, it was fun, easy and permanent. I went through a total transformation, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I healed old wounds and patterns. I developed new, health habits. I wanted to share all the hidden goodness of coaching with others and always keep coaching as a part of my life. So, I decided to become certified myself and launch my business.

What benefit does it have to the community around you?

Not only do I help clients lose weight, I help them to do it in a way that does not feel like work. We achieve total transformation by shedding unhealthy habits and old thought patterns and building new tendencies, behaviors and even a new identity. For example, many of my clients identify as someone who has trouble losing weight but may leave the program identifying as a healthy, confident person. How cool is that!?

How did you overcome your biggest hurdle when starting your business?
