Name 3 things that sum up your thoughts on your coach
1. Kick ass
Are you engaged in regular exercise/a sport?
Somewhat....daily walks during my lunch, bike rides with the kiddos and horseback riding when I can fit it in my schedule.
How did you find your PLT onboarding experience & community experience?
A little overwhelming for the first week but after that, smooth sailing.
What dieting programs had you tried previously and what makes PLT standout from previous programs?
I went through a dietitian through my doctor....I paid more out of pocket to talk to her for 15 mins than I did for this program! It was a joke.
What was your driving reason for joining PLT?
I was NOT happy with myself. I've always been fit and active and after having kids, everything got thrown off and I wanted to get back to what I use to look like and feel better about myself. I also wanted to lose weight for my horses sake because he was diagnosed with navicular disease last year and I wanted to take some weight off of him to help heal and stay healthy.

As of today, 40 lb

People think I look younger!
What 1 piece of advice would you give to people considering joining PLT or new members?
I have told everyone that it's totally worth it and you won't regret it!
Your turn now; what 1 thing would you like to ask me?
Oh man!! What made you want to create this program??? Because all I can say is I'm glad you did!!
Hi Sam, Tks for the question!
I too once had a lot of weight to lose, most of which I lost myself, but I had worked with a coach towards the end of my journey. During that time I became fascinated by nutrition and would read and listen to podcasts daily. I also began to help a number of people, who were actually paying other companies for coaching, and eventually someone said "you help so many people for free why don’t you become a paid coach yourself?"
So I did! I wasn’t really sure initially but I quickly signed some clients and it really snowballed, inside a few months I had too many clients to manage myself and approached Coach Patti to help me. The rest is history.
