Well Monitor, how's her diet? On, with a free account, she can track her daily intake. Now, she has to enter everything she eats.

Second, what kind of lifestyle has she got? Sometimes, modifications need to be done to diet in regards of foods to purchase to help out really busy people with tight schedules.

Maybe she's at loss as to what to do. By keeping track of a journal in terms of food and helping with fitting healthy choices on her diet, it might help her feel more in control and secure.

There are also issues of self acceptance in regards to her image now. For me, it took time to realize that my body wasn't something to hate due to its imperfection but my body is a vehicle for achieving a healthier life and praise God. The way I look today is not the way I will look tomorrow. I went through these issues of image. I would, as a teenager, cut down calories, think that my family wanted me just to get fat by offering me all these foods, and that I would not be accepted unless I was perfect. Bodybuilding gave me a place to belong, where being strong was being beautiful and true to who you are.

Your client hasn't gone through that stage yet.
Kickboxing is great but she might need an extra day or two of cardio. I would work on diet first though.

Monitor, I will pm you. There is a lot more I could tell you as a woman in regards to this situation. ABC has everything your client needs to succeed but there are other issues of self esteem that she might need help on.


Nothing seems tiresome or painful when you are working for a Master who
pays well, who rewards even a cup of cold water given for love of Him.

- St. Dominic Savio (1842-1857)
We must pray without tiring, for the salvation of mankind does not depend on material success, nor on sciences that cloud the intellect. Neither does it depend on arms and human industries, but on Jesus alone.

- St. Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917)
