I needed help with portion control and stress/emotional eating when I reached out to Felicia for help on-line.  The one thing that helped me the most from working with her, is that I should continue to track what I’m eating so that I will be aware, you encouraged me to incorporate weight training, you convinced me I should focus on fat loss not weight loss, you told me not to focus on the “hell/scale” because that is only one indicator of progress & I need to be more forgiving of myself when I slip-up and just get back on track. The biggest takeaway from our work together, is that I’m better at being aware of and tracking what I eat, I see results from weight training and that is what is motivating me to keep it up & patience, along with consistent calorie deficit is what is going to help me achieve my goal (I’m still a work in progress!).

There is a ton of information about health, fitness and wellness on the web today. So how can that info help flatten your gut? Or trim your waistline? The sad truth? Information alone is useless! It’s real and consistent action that ultimately gets results, right? But do you know what comes before action? Trust! You need to trust the information and the source that provided the information. What you’re about to read will prove why you can trust me plus all the helpful tips, suggestions and resources I share here on this site. My name is Felicia Starks. I am a certified personal trainer and lifestyle weight management specialist. Many of my readers and training clients trust me for one reason more than any other. Because when it comes to really struggling with my weight… I’ve been there! As in topping the scales at 170 pounds. I was born and raised in the South and was introduced to good ol’ Southern cooking at an early age. Like many people today I picked up some bad habits with diet, nutrition and exercise. (Or lack thereof.) I was a slave to food for years. I would eat every 2 hours (since the “experts” always told us to do that.) But it didn’t stop there. I counted calories. I journaled everything I ate from meals to snacks. And even though I had some success losing weight, (which I wanted to do before starting a family) I still didn’t have the lean body I truly desired. A move to the West Coast is where EVERYTHING changed. There I absolutely embraced my new one sentence personal mission statement: “I eat to live instead of living to eat.” And don’t think I’m sacrificing when it comes to my lifestyle. I enjoy healthy & hearty meals as well as desserts and more. When I added my love for fitness, something magical happened. I have NEVER had so much energy! My new look gave me supreme confidence. And I want to help YOU experience that same breakthrough. My passion is optimum health & fitness together with financial freedom. My mission is to inspire and empower people like you to live a fit, healthy lifestyle while taking control of their own financial future. Sound good? Have a question or two? Lets connect!
