MEET OUR AMAZING COACHES

I GET THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING WITH THESE AMAZING WOMEN.

EACH BRING THEIR UNIQUE GIFTING, ENERGY AND PERSPECTIVE TO SUPPORT YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY TOWARDS HEALTH AND WHOLENESS.

Hi! My name is Michele Malenky. I live in Ohio, out in the country with my husband. We have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law and two adorable grands. I have been part of WLGW since December of 2019.  I reached goal in September of 2020 having released 86 pounds.  Learning that 80 % of eating is emotional was a game changer. So was setting up my goals in weekly achievable bits so I could celebrate success along the way. I am a bold believer, strong in my faith. I have taught a ladies Bible study group for almost 15 years and also work one on one with ladies that are broken, or struggling with addictions. My desire is to help ladies on their journey to freedom, whatever that looks like. It may be from a toxic relationship, alcohol, or pounds on the scale. The answer to peace, joy and freedom is Jesus.

Hi! My name is Melissa B. & I am excited to join Cathy’s team as one of the WLGW Coaches. I am a board-certified Registered Nurse by profession with over 27 years of healthcare experience. In addition to nursing, my life roles also include wife, mom, Nana, and most importantly, Christ-follower. I have been married to my high-school sweetheart for 31 years, 33 years together & we have traveled the country, as my husband is a retired US Marine. We have “6” grown kids; 3 of our own, along with each of their spouses, aka our “kids-in-love.” In addition to our kids, we currently have 5 ½ grandkids, with the newest due in August 2021. Oh & we also have 4 fur babies, 3 English bullies (girls) and a boy-Chihuahua rescue. Last, but certainly not least, I have been a Christ-follower since middle-school but consider myself a continuing work in progress!  

My health journey is unique in that I have lived on both sides of the weight spectrum, i.e., both underweight and overweight. Looking back, I realized that my eating habits and love for all things savory (crackers/bread), fast food & sodas, has remained steadfast since early childhood. After the birth of our 3rd baby in my early 20’s, my role as wife and mom took on a whole new level as my responsibilities with our family grew, my stress increased and my unhealthy eating habits from childhood re-emerged. As a mom of 3 kids under the age of four, I had the added 24-hour role as a USMC spouse, which added yet another layer of “controlled chaos” to the mix. Looking back, I have jokingly said that the only “stability” in our lives was knowing that there would be “no stability,” as we endured multiple cross-country moves, 2 wars on terrorism, and countless days/nights separated from our Marine, while also being thousands of miles away from our extended family. Although I recognized my weight steadily increasing after my youngest son’s birth; it wasn’t until my doctor pointed out that I was at risk with developing Type 2 diabetes, secondary to the ongoing weight gain and unhealthy eating habits; that panic set in. This was also when my love-hate relationship with every yo-yo diet available, resulting in the “4-sizes range” in my closet, began.

But God. Yes, I knew He was with me, but never once did I think to invite Him into this specific area of my life, to bring order to the weight chaos. That awareness & thought-turned-action step did not occur until a few years ago in 2018…Yes, some 25+ years after my love-hate relationship with food/weight began. God used my background/knowledge as a Nurse, combined with my obedience and willingness to (finally) submit this area to Him, to show me actual positive results by regaining control over the food/weight war that I had been waging internally. Just as I believed my food/weight issue was conquered, Covid-19 arrived on the scene. The months of unknowing, quarantining, and virtual work soon turned Covid-19 into “Covid-30,” as my bad eating habits/patterns emerged & the “lost-weight” found me, increasing by 30+ lbs. But God. Michele M. introduced me to Cathy and WLGW via the 21-day Challenge, which reignited my love and focus to partner with God. He is re-aligning my perspective with weight/food/health to mirror His, with using Cathy & the WLGW family to finally “free” me from the chains of the yo-yo battle forever. Although I am a continuing work in progress, I’m excited for the opportunity as a WLGW Coach, to help other women finally break free from the chains of the weight/food rollercoaster forever.

Hi! My name is Lynette. I have three children and have lived in the fast-paced coaching world with my husband for over 31 years. 

 

With our transient lifestyle, God has led me through a number of careers ranging from engineering and pharmaceutical sales to teaching math at the high school and junior college levels. Along the way and amongst all the change, I found myself running to food and TV to deal with the emotional pain of isolation and the fear of rejection. The burden and shame I felt from not being able to control my weight was overwhelming at times.

 

Then, as I was recovering from a knee replacement surgery, I found Healthy By Design: Weight Loss God’s Way: The Proven 21-Day Weight Loss Devotional Bible Study. I discovered I was not only carrying extra physical weight, but a heavy spiritual weight as well. The devotional helped redefine what freedom could look like for me by inviting God into my health journey and using His strength to move forward. Through God’s power, I began learning why I was emotionally drawn to food and how to uncover root causes. This became the strength and tools I needed to experience real change!

 

Through my own pain and story, I discovered how passionate I am about helping others experience the same freedom I did. In 2017, I combined my college athlete mindset, desire to learn and communication skills to become an entrepreneur health and wellness advocate, providing nutritional products and resources to many. I am an Optivia Coach, distributor for JuicePlus and COPE (Center for Obesity and Prevention Education) Certified. Most importantly, I love pointing people toward God’s power and mentoring others on their health journey!

Hello!  My name is Amy Hughes.  I have been married for over 27 year and have 19 year old twins in college.  I have been an Occupational Therapist for the past 20 years.

Setting goals for my patients and helping them achieve them is my full-time work.  Sadly I have had trouble with setting goals for myself to release my weight.  I have tried so many products and diets.  I was introduced to Weight Loss God’s Way a year ago. Cathy’s teachings and support have changed my life.   WLGW has taught me to put God in the center of my weight release journey.

I have released 57 pounds and continue to work to reach my goal.  God continues to reveal Himself to me and teaches me that He is in control and that He loves me through this journey.  I am so excited to be a mentor and help support others through this journey drawing closer to the Lord and through their weight release journey.
