Building the Mindset to Change Your Body and Your Life

You can love your body and want to change it.

Transforming your body is tough—whether you want to lose weight, gain lean muscle mass, or simply age more gracefully. Why? Because health and wellness is a triangle comprised of three key components: exercise, nutrition, and mental strength. ​​Your success at transforming your body boils down to that third piece of the triangle: your mental strength. And your mental strength determines whether you will be compliant with exercise and nutrition.

Understanding Wellness in Regard to Weight Loss

As a wellness coach married to a personal trainer, I have found that exercise and nutrition are easy to teach. Workout programs are added to a person’s schedule to include cardio, strength training and flexibility. If a person is not already active, I’ll put on my detective cap and find out if there was anything in their childhood that they loved to do, like ride a bike or play volleyball. Then we explore ways to bring more physical activity and passion back to life.

For nutrition, we have an amazing nutritional cleansing system that just simply works to fuel the body for athletics, weight loss, graceful aging, performance, energy, and an overall healthy lifestyle. We guide people to eliminate junk foods and make healthy choices in terms of food and levels of stress.

The caveat for both exercise and nutrition is compliance. And that’s where the tricky part comes in. A person’s success in health and wellness boils down to that third piece of the triangle: their mental strength and their willingness to develop a mindset to change. And their mental strength determines whether they will comply with exercise and nutrition. That’s where Transform comes in, to assist you in developing a positive mindset as part of a daily habit.

Packed with actionable advice and insights, “Transform” is a must-read for anyone looking to achieve their goals and unlock their full potential. So if you’re ready to transform your body and life, get your copy of “Transform” today and start your journey towards a healthier, happier you.

Real, raw, informative.

Lori has created a book that is such a gift for woman who have gone through surgical menopause. You get a real sense of the struggle and accomplishments that can happen during this time. This short read is packed with research and information that is invaluable.

– Michelle Renar, L.M.T., owner, Hudson Valley Body Works

An extraordinary story by an extraordinary woman.

Lori’s book cuts through the esoteric nonsense about ‘bouncing back’ or ‘hanging in there,’ and gives you a beautiful, step-by-step process not just to come back, but to live a life of wonder and explode your potential.”

– Mark Januszewski, best-selling author, speaker, business trainer, Kauai

Someone Who Understands!

It’s hard to believe that a book about the trials, tribulations, and ultimate victory over the life-altering event of surgical menopause could be a page-turner, but it is! Lori has brought honesty, vulnerability, grit, and humor to this guidebook for “life after” sudden, abrupt menopause and shares how to return – not to the life you knew, but to a better life. Tips, tricks, laughter and love are in abundance here. Thank you, Lori Ann!

– Nancy Ottinger, Lenexa, Kansas

So helpful!

We all face struggles and although Lori’s struggle was based around a medical situation, I found her methods to cope were universal in application. I have read her book several times and especially liked chapter 6!

Lori writes with honesty and transparency about her own personal experience. Easy and quick read. Very informative and helpful. Lots of great tips and resources. Great book! Highly recommend it!

– Amy Van Holla Lowell, Michigan

A Gift to all Women.

“Come Back Strong is a gift to all women. It gives voice to so many who’ve been suffering silently for far too long. Lori’s journey reveals practical yet powerful techniques that will help you overcome regardless of your personal struggle. Her strength and compassion are an inspiration to us all.”
– Theresa Lyn Widmann, owner, Anahata Yoga and Healing Arts

Something for everyone, including men.

Lori has captured the emotional and gritty resolve of someone dealing with and successfully tackling a challenging period of change and trauma that so many women seem to face quietly. Bringing the language to others that we all seem to wish we could voice is such a valuable gift that Lori presents. Her words are humble, yet she confidently speaks of how to sit up and take control of her life, the way we all should consider doing.

What I like most about this book, is the true nature of the content will help all people when we face these changes in our lives. The timeline is different, yet the emotions are there for all of us, including men. So the book does not leave anyone out of the mix!

Don't waste 16 years figuring things out for yourself.

I had a “complete hysterectomy” 16 years ago. I thought I knew what I had signed up for and I was ready.

But, as I read Lori’s book, it brought back memories of how I felt afterwards both physically and mentally. I thought that the way I felt was just what I had to go through and I had no choice in how I reacted to the way I felt.

I now wish I had had this book back then. Lori walks you through how to overcome many of the problems you will face if you are contemplating surgical menopause or if you have started down the natural menopause path. Her “guide” will help you each step of the way.

I highly recommend this book.

– Debbie Daniels, Haskell, OK

A Book That Tells the Truth.

We finally have a book that tells the truth: surgery is difficult and the changes to your body can be intense. Lori’s story is filled with helpful tips as she teaches us what doctors forget to mention: the road back to health may be long, but you can “Come Back Strong.” I appreciate the insights, medical advice and research in this book.
– Holly Winter, Author

Educational, inspirational, and motivational.

Educational, inspirational, and motivational. A well-written journey through dramatic life-changing effects of sudden menopause that leaves you with a positive outlook to handle life struggles.

– Mark W. DeCesare, D.C.

Warm and Welcoming.

This book sets a tone of support and encouragement sprinkled with dashes of humor to place the reader at ease. It helps to let a woman know that she is not alone as well as helping her friends and family know what she is going through. I know many will benefit from this read and I look forward to more publications from Lori Ann King.

– Deborah Tuttle

Exactly what I was looking for.

A straight forward book from a woman who’s been there. Easy to read without a ton of medical jargon. Lori’s book is packed with great tips and she explains things I can understand. My hubby even wants to read the book too so he can understand more from a woman’s perspective of what I am going through.

It is worth the read!!!
