Laurelle Loe ~ St. Albert, AB
Welcome! My name is Laurelle, and I’m so very excited about what is ahead for us all. This is my tenth journey with Healthy Role Models and my sixth as an ambassador and I can assure you that this Healthy Role Model community is a very special place. Whatever your goals or reasons for being here... I am thrilled to cheer you on this spring!
I am 37 and my husband and I have our 16th anniversary coming up this spring. We have four kids, and we both work full time. Life is full, fun, and just a bit crazy.
Before I tell you about why I love HRM, I should explain a bit about where I was before joining in the fall of 2016. I had just spent two years struggling against the scale, watching the numbers creep up and feeling my energy and confidence creep down. I never ate breakfast, survived on Diet Coke and coffee, and had those extra large sized bags of chips hidden in my car. I knew I wanted something different but I had no idea how to achieve it.
HRM offered me the tools I needed to make those changes. I have learnt how to make my health a priority, how to reshape negative habits into habits that serve my goals, and how to fuel my body. More than that, HRM offered me community and support - key pieces I didn’t even know I was missing - which have been an amazing blessing in my life. My husband and our kids are all seeing the benefits of these changes. Not only do I have more energy, but we are enjoying being active as a family.
To finish, I want to add that I am still here because this program is about a sustainable, achievable, and positive lifestyle. I have more capacity to tackle obstacle, adapt to uncertainty, and embrace new opportunities. These are skills and lessons that ripple into all areas of wellness and I love being a student. I’m excited to be here alongside all of you this spring!
