Tracy is a fantastic coach and I highly recommend her. When my doctor informed me that my A1C was 6.4 and time to start diabetes 2 medicine, I decided to contact Tracy. I had read her book, “Diabetes Tragedy to Triumph”, and knew together we could put my health back on track. With Tracy’s coaching my A1c went from 6.4 to 5.4 within 3 months and I have lost 28 pounds. With her nutrition tips and exercise suggestions, I feel much better and full of energy. My blood glucose was between 110-140 and now it ranges around 85-115. Tracy is someone that pointed me in the right direction and enabled me to continue a healthy lifestyle that will last the rest of my life. My two favorite saying she taught me are, “Small Steps = Big Changes” and, “It is not if I should exercise but I MUST EXERCISE”. Her weekly phone calls, timely texts, and emails were very uplifting and encouraging. Add it all together and you are on your way to a healthy full life. ~ Kirt F.
Tracy I am so appreciative of you! Your information has changed and saved my life! Had I not heard your information, when I went to the Doctor and he just started prescribing meds for me, I would have thought that is where I was at. Thanks to you and your inspiration plus proactive diet changes you encouraged, I knew there was hope to take my health under my control. ~ G. J.
When Tracy came into my life she was truly a blessing to my life...since being under the leadership she has encouraged me to exercise and eat right and I truly see the difference in my life...I've learned how to treat my body with care and to exercise on a regular basis...she also taught me things I could do at home when I was unable to work out...again she has truly been a blessing in my life and I love her for sharing her gifts. ~ D.
