Mia's Moment


Blog Image: Mia's Moment

We’re grateful for Mia’s openness and so appreciative of her willingness to share and to allow us all to grow from her experience. Now presenting:  Mia’s Moment!

While discussing the potential root causes of her unwillingness to cook, Mia shared a childhood memory with her Consultant in a weigh-in.  At about age eight, Mia was with her Mom in the grocery store with a cart full of food to buy when suddenly her Mom realized that time had gotten away and unless they left the store immediately, dinner wouldn't be on the table in time for when her Dad got home.  Hastily, they left the store...and the grocery cart!  That "defining moment" taught Mia one thing... NEVER LEARN TO COOK!  In her eight-year-old mind the life-lesson learned was, ”if you never learn to cook, you’ll never be confronted with this fear and humiliation again!”  This “psychological root in childhood” taught Mia to eat fast food, prepared meals, candy bars, and out of bags 'n boxes.  Not only did this hurt her health, but the reliance on others for cooked food also adversely affected her self-esteem.   

Discovering that her belief about cooking had translated into a purposeless behavior was a major “ah-ha moment” for her.  Finally ready to ‘sit with her emotions’  and  discover what they meant, Mia today is loving the kitchen and creatively cooking!  Now, when her fiance says, “I’ll make that for you”, Mia’s says, “No thanks, I AM going to do this!”  Most  importantly, Mia is now enjoying a long overdue greater sense of self.   She delighted in telling Georgia (her Consultant), “My first thought upon waking in the morning used to be, “Oh no!  What am I going to eat?”  Now she wakes up and thinks, “Mmmm, 2 eggs, an ounce of cheese, and some grits!  Grits that I CAN COOK MYSELF!”

Blog Image: Mia's MomentSpeaking of cooking all by herself, Mia just sent us an update with her latest and greatest kitchen creation as of October 2016: Spinach Quiche! And before you go thinking it looks too good to be true - it is 100% on program! To prove it, here's the recipe below!

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
