"I eat more, move more, and I’ve built a lifestyle that lasts"
"Before working with White Iris, I was always feeling tired and out of energy, even on days when I’d managed to get eight hours of sleep the night before. I was groggy, grumpy, had recurrent head and body aches, and had a hard time focusing on what I was doing regardless of whether it was work or time with my family.
By the time I met Violet, I’d been to see several sleep doctors who all told me I was fine. Violet quickly realized that the problem wasn’t so much sleep as it was that I needed to take care of my body and change my food and exercise habits. And working with her, I got so much more than I expected!
I became more aware of how food made me feel, and I started to easily eat more delicious foods that were good for my body. I had more energy for work, family, and exercise, and I even lost 10 pounds in less that 45 days and 2% of my body fat and I wasn’t even focused on weight loss!
Now, I eat more, move more, and I’ve built a lifestyle that lasts. Sure I mess up from time-to-time, I’m not perfect, but even on the days where I have an off day, I still have more energy than I ever did before!"
"Now, I’m happy to report that I’m a size 6! I live every day alive, accomplished, empowered, and positive, and I love myself and my body."
"I’d always been overweight for as long as I can remember. And I guess to be more accurate, I was obese. Because at only 5’ 3” tall, I weighed over 250 lbs.
I’d never had a social life, and over the years, I’d tried dieting, had periods of bulimia and anorexia, tried diet pills, and always ended up gaining back more than I’d lost. Around the time I decided on gastric bypass surgery, I’d begun taking care of my mother who had dementia, and I’d found that the added depression from the obesity was too much.
Luckily, while on the pre-operating table, I realized that surgery was not for me and I pulled the IV in my arm out and left. When I went to see my doctor a week later, he said, “You have two choices--more diet pills or Violet White."
I chose Violet and White Iris. At first, I had some doubts. I mean, I’d heard from plenty of people who had had success from working with a coach, but I doubted whether I could have that same success. After all, I was a big eater and someone who could go all day without eating and then eat half a bag of family-sized potato chips at night. But I decided to approach this with everything I had.
I started working with Violet and was immediately drawn to her warmth and seriousness. She listened, but also didn’t pull any punches. She was sincere and every single day she was there to help me succeed. Plus, it was good to have that accountability from someone so positive and someone who could offer suggestions or variations on things when I got stuck. And for the first time in my life, I trusted someone.
There were times when there was no weight loss, but instead of getting discouraged, I’d focus on the inches I’d lost or the muscles I’d gained. At times I was afraid I’d start to gain the weight back, but I found that even if I indulged and had a juicy steak, I’d still lose weight. All I had to do was follow and trust Violet. So that’s what I did.
And now, I’m happy to report that I’m a size 6! I live every day alive, accomplished, empowered, and positive, and I love myself and my body. I enjoy food, and I continue to work with Violet on a regular basis because as much as I’d like to say I can do this on my own, I can’t—I need Violet’s support and guidance."
"I lost the weight, and now I have more energy, I feel healthier, and I’m proud of myself for committing to this lifestyle."
"After working with White Iris, I not only reached my weight loss goals, but I now know what it means to be healthy. I no longer purchase low-fat products, I stay away from processed foods, and I’ve come to understand that my new way of eating is a lifestyle change, not a diet.
Violet is extremely knowledgeable, realistic, and positive. She’s easy to communicate with, is very clear on how to maintain this new lifestyle, and is always there if you need help or have questions. My original goal wasn’t anything too drastic. I wanted to lose 30 lbs., but what worried me was that I wouldn’t lose weight at a pace that would keep me motivated. I was afraid that before too long, I’d return to my old eating habits and gain back any weight I’d lost.
"I wanted to lose weight and to keep it off. I also wanted to learn how to eat properly so that I would be able to maintain the weight loss. And I’ve successfully done that."
"I was introduced to Violet through my brother because after seeing his transformation, I wanted a similar one for myself! Plus, I knew how highly he spoke of her and how well they’d worked together, so I knew she was the person for me. And I was right!
Violet was always available, she always made me feel like I was important to her, she was always a great source of motivation, and she was genuinely interested in making sure that I stayed on track and succeeded. I wanted to lose weight and to keep it off. I also wanted to learn how to eat properly so that I would be able to maintain the weight loss. And I’ve successfully done that.
It hasn’t always been easy. In fact, I’d say it’s a challenge to continue making healthy choices, but with Violet’s continued support and approach (because she too had experienced many of the same challenges and frustrations), I’m able to continue and maintain a healthy lifestyle."
"Anyone can create a diet program, but the success comes from being able to provide support, encouragement, advice, and knowledge, and that’s exactly what Violet does!"
"I started working with Violet because I wanted to lose some weight I’d been unable to shed on my own. But working with Violet was more than that, she’s there to support you, to check in with you daily, and to teach you how to understand food and your relationship with it.I learned why and when I made bad or wrong food choices and how to control it, and I guess you could say that Violet changed my outlook on food as an adult! That was key. Almost anyone can create a diet program, but the success comes from being able to provide support, encouragement, advice, and knowledge, and that’s exactly what Violet does!"
"Violet believed in me even when I doubted myself."
"Violet truly cares about her clients! She doesn’t just concentrate on weight loss, but works with you to form new eating habits that are manageable for a lifetime. When I started working with her my goals were simple, I wanted to lose weight and learn how to eat healthier. But honestly, I wasn’t sure if I could do it and I was worried that if I did lose weight that I wouldn’t be able to keep it off.
Luckily, Violet believed in me even when I doubted myself. She gave me knowledge, support, and pushed me forward. And I’d say that my greatest takeaway hasn’t been the weight loss itself, but that it’s been the satisfaction of all I’ve achieved.
So if you’re looking for a program that’s tailored to you and your specific goals and needs, that will help you beyond weight loss, that’s easy to follow and adapt to, and that’s one-on-one with coaching and support, then this is the program for you!"
"They teach you how to create happiness in your life."
"When you work with White Iris, they not only teach you the importance of maintaining a healthy weight, they teach you how to create happiness in your life and find the time for healthy living. And that’s exactly what I needed when I started working with Lola.
With her help, I was able to work through a major transition in my life--I was letting my weight hold me back from exercising and from creating my new business. But with Lola there to support me, I was able to lose 20 lbs. and keep it off. From our work together, I now know how to maintain a healthy body and mindset for the benefit of myself and family--and I’m so very grateful."
"I was surprised how each day it felt like the fat and pounds were just melting away--no saggy skin, no hunger--it was almost effortless. Lola was with me 120%"
"I was never skinny, not even in high school. But I convinced myself that it was okay, and eventually, my “okay” became me being 100+ lbs. overweight.
After having two kids, I actually lost weight, but then I started gaining more and more until one day I’d had enough. For me it wasn’t about eating differently or changing habits, it was about losing the weight. I then found Lola--the most positive person I’ve ever met--and she asked me what I wanted. I said, “I want to lose the weight.” And with that, it started.
I was surprised how each day it felt like the fat and pounds were just melting away--no saggy skin, no hunger--it was almost effortless. Lola was with me 120%--always there to give a little extra support or guidance when I needed it, because honestly, changing my mindset was one of the hardest things. But I pushed through, and now I’m 60 lbs. lighter and I feel amazing. I eat more now than I did before, and my favorite thing ... I can have all the chocolate I want.My life has changed so much: I’ve educated myself on healthy living, I’m keeping my weight controlled, and I now buy clothes because I like them not just because they fit!"
"I have the tools I need to maintain a healthy lifestyle"
"Lola has been there for me and supported me continuously through this journey. I am forever grateful for all that she has done, and know that from working with her, I have the tools I need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Plus, I now know the importance of being healthy and happy. I lost 32lbs and, I now know the importance of being healthy and happy."
"Words can not express how grateful I am to have met both Lola & Violet during a most difficult and unhealthy time in my life."
"If you want to actually say you benefited from a weight loss program, then I would say that you need to contact White Iris Transformational Coaching & Wellness. In addition to my own weight loss and transformation, my whole family has greatly benefited from me working with White Iris. I never imagined I could make such over the top, amazing lifestyle changes! This was possible only because of the motivation, guidance and definitely the resourceful and empowering tools that come with their programs.
Words can not express how grateful I am to have met both Lola & Violet during a most difficult and unhealthy time in my life. Not only were they both determined to see me reach me goals, but were always there to celebrate with me every single milestone I crossed during some very difficult times. And after a couple of years, Lola still calls and checks up on me! Lola & Violet have been a great inspiration to me and to many women around the world."
"Their support and accountability really contributed to my success."
"After working with Lola and Violet, I’ve lost 35 lbs., I’ve gone from a size 12 to a size 2 (never thought that was possible!), and I’ve developed a new way of eating--eating the foods that work best for my body. I continue to use the tools Lola and Violet gave me, but I have to say, their support and accountability really contributed to my success."
"I have no more pain in my feet, my stomach aches are gone, my energy level is much better and I sleep great at night."
"I am one of those people that has always struggled with my weight. In addition to that, a very stressful period in my life caused my metabolism to change for the worse. I quickly gained about 60 pounds. It was impossible to get rid of. I tried many fad diets in which I did lose weight. But as soon as the diet was over the weight came right back.
I knew the only way to keep the weight off was to change my whole way of eating and thinking about food. I was not looking forward to that. I enjoyed the tastes of the food I was eating but I also realized I was feeling sick after I ate. I was sluggish and my body was aching. I would wake up being unable to walk on my feet for a few minutes because they hurt so much. I knew it was time for a change. I was tired of feeling sick and achy all over. I'm too young for that.
I met with Lola and made the decision to give her program a try. After 6 months I had lost 60lbs! I was thrilled! But the most important part was the coaching sessions with Lola. She was there to help with anything. She could tell when I'd be getting a little off track and she would help me to get back on track. Lola really dissects the information you give her about yourself and she helps you to make good decisions.
Through a series of sessions with Lola and a series of trying different foods, I have learned some things my body can tolerate and other things I should really stay away from. Lola has helped me to find certain snacks that I really enjoy that are healthy for me. That has been really important to me in order to stay away from the junk food I really shouldn't have.
Lola also gave me great suggestions as far as vitamins and herbs to help me in the areas I was struggling in. My medical doctor has also been impressed with my positive changes and my recent lab reports. I have no more pain in my feet, my stomach aches are gone, my energy level is much better and I sleep great at night.
Lola has really helped me to change my life. I have always known I needed to change my eating lifestyle but I never thought I could. Lola taught me how to do it gradually and to really enjoy it. She taught me great recipes and alternative ingredients to use. This is a point I never thought I would be at. It's been about 3 years now since I started working with Lola. I've never felt better. Not only in my health but in my outlook for the future. Lola has been there every step of the way. When times were rough she would reach out to me every day, to keep me focused and moving forward. She is truly dedicated and passionate about helping you feel your best and perform the best in every aspect of your life not just in your diet. Lola is extremely knowledgeable in her field and constantly researching and studying new things. I am ever grateful to both her and Violet for helping me change my life in a way I never would have been able to do on my own."
"I have learned to listen to my body and provide what is needed to nourish myself physically, emotionally and spiritually."
Health wise I am now in very good shape, but I benefited from working with Lola in so many ways; I now feel, rather I know, I can accomplish whatever I need to and have set the vision for exactly how I want my life to be and continue to work towards that."
