About Lisa M Pepe and Leaner Ladies™
Hello… I am so glad you are here! I’m Lisa M Pepe… A former Personal Trainer and Reiki III Practitioner turned Women’s Wellness-Weight-Wisdom Coach. I am dedicated to helping women of all ages feel better in their body so they can be better in their life!
I firmly believe what we eat, drink and come in contact with directly affects our wellness and the ability to reach and maintain our ideal weight. There are also several very dangerous factors jeopardizing women’s health these days and I want to help you understand the what, the why and how to take corrective action so you can reach your well-weight once and for all without going on and off diets. My Leaner Ladies™ programs are all designed to empower you to overcome your wellness and weight issues with a little bit of wisdom!
I have always tried to stay active, eat healthy and maintain my body’s ideal weight even through all of life’s trials and tribulations. At certain times in my life, however, my body was hit with various stressors and I had to tune into it and learn how to make changes in order to get back in balance and re-set my health and well-weight… Here is the abbreviated story of those times…
In my teens and twenties, I had a few health issues and gained and lost 10-15 lbs several times. It seemed like a yearly ritual and was worse when I felt run down in the winter. It was as if my body liked to fatten up to stay warm during the chilly months and I always suffered from a lack of energy. I began to track the patterns and discovered the reasons why it was happening and luckily was able to reverse the weight gain and winter blahs by spring and just in time for summer!
When I turned 30, I injured my back and gained 15-20 lbs after surgery. At the end of my 6 month recovery period, I was actually able to lose the weight and return my body back to a healthy state more quickly thanks to knowing exactly what to do before it got out of hand. I felt like I was really on to something because friends, family members and people I knew in the health and wellness field began asking how I did it! I shared what I knew with all who inquired on a causal basis, but wanted to do more to help others.
In 2002, at 36 years old, I decided to take my passion about healthy living to the next level when I became a Certified Personal Trainer with an extra focus on nutrition. I specialized in helping women achieve their weight loss goals and to feel better in their body. I really enjoy seeing their results and was able to maintain my own wellness and weight loss balance while helping others do the same!
And then I entered my 40’s… and was faced with the biggest health issue ever…read on below…
Me before at 185 lbs and size 12
All was great until I turned 41 and things began to change. I became very ill with a ‘mystery” condition and my hormones went crazy. I gained 40 lbs in a year and couldn’t get it off no matter what I did! I felt horrible and as if my body was betraying me. I felt like I was dying and the symptoms I experienced were beyond anything I had ever known. I go into more detail in the video above, but let’s sum it up to feeling like the life was being drained right out of me by a blood sucking vampire… which was closer to the truth than I knew. No kidding!
I went to doctor after doctor and had test after test done only to be told that everything was “normal.” I certainly didn’t feel “normal”… far from it… so I decided to search non-stop for a way to once again return my body to it’s healthy weight and state of being. I was determined to figure out what was going on and to fix it. I would not accept others telling me it was “just what happens when you reach a certain age”… and you don’t have to either… because it’s not the truth!
Me After at 145 lbs and a size 6-8
After a lot of research and experimenting with remedies, I used my inner guidance along with some nutritional tweaking to make adjustments, re-balance my hormones and give my body what it needed to get better and reverse the weight gain. Putting the pieces of the puzzle together was challenging, but I took matters into my own hands and helped guide my health care practitioners until I (we) began to figure it out. As my research uncovered the underlying causes of my symptoms and I implemented what I learned, my body finally returned to a healthier state and a size 6-8!
As I was going through this, I was gathering and logging the information I received. I then put it all into the coaching program that I now call my Leaner Ladies™ Lifestyle Mastery Course. I still follow everything in this course and make adjustments to it each time I discover something new along the way. Leaner Ladies™ is not just about weight loss. It is about women’s Wellness, Weight and Wisdom and empowering you with the knowledge to do what it takes to feel better in your body. Following this program helped me overcome many health and weight challenges, gave me back my life and is the reason I am able to coach women on how to take care of their own health and educate them on hidden causes of their conditions. And I can’t wait to share it all with you!
My mission with the Leaner Ladies™ Lifestyle Mastery Course is to help you solve the mysteries of what is behind your wellness and weight loss issues so you can take control of your own health and body once and for all… just like I did. I’d love to help you put the pieces of your own puzzle together because it’s a real eye opener and just knowing the underlying causes can give you all of the incentive you need to reach your well-weight goals and improve your health. I hope you will join me in it, but if not, you can begin with one of the break-out programs I created. Read more below…
To accommodate those women who want to digest things little at a time, I broke Leaner Ladies™ into three smaller programs. You can follow them easily and achieve some great well-weight results until you are ready to “dive all in” with my Lifestyle Mastery Course. I created my 5-Day Gentle Detox Protocol to help women give their body a break and cleanse in as little as 5 days without any harsh effects. Then there’s my Two Week Transform which is great for slimming down to fit into that sexy outfit before a big event. And, my 21-Day Weight Loss Freedom Formula teaches you all the basics you need to know to begin to let go of stubborn pounds. All of these programs build on one another and are repeatable. The more you follow them, the better results you will see!
All of my programs will help you lose weight safely and quickly while building a solid foundation for healthy lasting results! They were created out of my own necessity to overcome viral and hormonal weight gain but I found that they work for all women no matter what stage of life they are in! Choose where you’d like to start and click on any of the titles in blue above for more information.
I want to empower women of all ages to know and feel that they have the ability to lose weight and keep it off in a healthy way! You do not have to rely on dangerous weight loss products or the next fad diet to achieve your weight loss goals and to maintain an ideal weight for your body! All of my programs teach you the skills you need to lose all the weight you need or want to and keep it off for good!
Being well (well-being) is a natural thing and your body works hard to keep you in balance to stay that way. You do not have to struggle to reach your healthy body weight or have more energy when you heal things on the inside first! Once you approach your wellness and weight with a little wisdom on the inside, you will find it’s easier to be what you want to be on the outside! I hope to educate, inspire and help you transform your body, mind and spirit so you feel better in your body and can be better in your life!
