Healthy Lifestyle Coaching Video

Healthy Lifestyle Coaching video transcript

Emilee:
Before I had no energy… it was difficult to do things… I did not feel healthy.

I spent a lot of the time in my bed or on the couch, just watching TV.
I was over 100 lbs overweight.

My employer put out the communication that they’re gonna do Metabolic screening.
It’s extremely convenient.
I went down at the scheduled time, got tested within 5 minutes and got my results within two days.

I didn’t want to look at it, and I did, and it was not good.

Coach Emmye
I’m Emmye. I’m a wellness coach here at Aetna.
Emilee is a huge success story for me.
I do feel proud. It’s a great feeling when you see somebody achieve their goals.

Emilee
I attribute the success to being determined, and to help me be determined, I worked with a wellness coach.

Coach Emmye
She’s achieved so much, and now the struggle is ‘how do I maintain?’.
I really have to prepare people that things are going to go wrong.

Emilee
I had a lot of struggles during this period of trying to get healthy.

Coach Emmye
When you know your kids are home sick from school and you have meetings all night long, what are you gonna do?

Mindfulness I think is a difficult thing, and a lot of us have a lot of things going on in our life. We’re multitasking.
I try to tell people, right now, what’s important to you, right here?
Are you taking the time to relax at night? Are you getting enough sleep?

Emilee had difficulty with snacking at night, and she realized her behavior was really the result of stress.
Yoga was my pathway in to helping with the stress.

Emilee
Yoga’s great for your peace of mind. It really makes you feel good – it really brings everything together.

As I kept getting more fit & making more dietary changes based on really just asking her.
She was able to tell me what I needed when I needed it.
To me, she seemed like she was available 24/7.
It’s on the phone. It’s where you are.
I feel like she’s there for just me.

Ramsey (Emilee’s husband) The dinners she makes, no matter what recipe she comes up with, they’re always fantastic.
It’s been a great change, I think it’s beneficial to all of us.

Emilee:
If I start the day with a run, the rest of my day feels better.
Running is my best stress reliever.

I started running 2 miles, and I was gonna spend the next 5 months working towards a 5k, and she said ‘you’re ready now!’. She said ‘I want you to sign up for this race’.

And I thought, yeah I can do this.

Ramsey
Emilee’s transformation is-is fantastic. I think it’s had a huge effect on our whole family.

Emilee
I tried to think of how I could make myself better.
I tried to think a whole-body wellness.

I lost 100 pounds, but it’s more than that. I feel healthier, more in control and empowered to do anything.

Emilee found her path to well-being.
We can help you find yours.
