About Me:

My name is Amber.


To me, nature is all things.
It is my way of life, my spirituality, and my teacher.

I am a Dog Trainer in rural New York, teaching others how to communicate efficiently with their companions.
I specialize in aggression.
I am also a freelance artist.

My weight loss began in February of 2013 at a starting weight of 168LBS due to struggling with emotional-night eating due to severe depression & anxiety as well as other troublesome mental aspects.

I was able to get down over 65lbs, switching over to maintenance and starting more serious strength training.
I started experimenting with a more "natural" way of eating. Following most of the guidelines of Primal Eating, but basically only just ate foods that the earth provides and try to not label things. I had also picked up daily 16:8 intermittent fasting, and monthly 24 hour fasts.

This worked great for my body and health, but suddenly like overnight .. I began binge eating 5 - 10k calories a day...

I then re-learned what I should have stuck with all along .. moderation.

In the end it's about being more healthy vs. super strict.
I try not to let my diet rule my life.

Life is just too short if I let food define how I live it, but I do feel that making more healthy choices can help define my quality of life.

You have to find balance.
