Well... I left home at 15 years old and I guess as they say, the rest is history. I have been an entrepreneur my entire life which started out as babysitting and cleaning houses, to running and helping others run million dollar companies.
I nanny'd (mothered) for a couple with 3 small children and actually lived in a shed in their yard for about a year. With no heat, no running water, no nothing like that. Just a box. It was a pretty nice decent sized box though and the house was not too far away if I had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. But who wants to get out of bed when it's that cold. I do live in Alberta, Canada!!
Also at this same time in life, some of my wonderful teachers thought that I should just get kicked out of High School for missing too many days. Really thoughtful for a 15 year old child hey, not one thought what so ever as to anything I was going through. They just didn't want me. So... I home schooled myself through the rest of my High School Education, graduating with honors!! Like... I graduated with 98-100% Honors in all of my classes!! Ya, I am very proud of myself for all of this, which also gave me a lot more confidence to continue achieving all that I wanted and dreamed of in life. From there I enrolled in the Massage Therapy secondary education program that they offered in Red Deer, Alberta, at The Alberta Institute of Massage. I studied Anatomy and Physiology of The Human Body as well as Medical Terminology, the equivalent to my First Year Doctor, along with many many many Practical Hours working on fellow students and clients that would come to the Institute to take advantage of the low prices we offered as just students.
Upon completion I went right into having my own Practice, which is 20 years now!! I have been studying the human body my entire life though. I was even healing my classmates headaches and aches and pains in just grade school. I also did science fair projects on Reflexology and What Affects Dreams. What can I say, I am obsessed with healing and learning all that I possibly can about the human body. I have been studying and working with the human body for over 25 years!
Since the time I was 8-10 years old, I've been aware that I just had unnatural fat if you ask me. Family members made fun of me for having cellulite and how I would never fit into such and such outfit of an adult size. You know. Because I was too big!! At that young of an age? It broke my heart to say the least! I was actually about 10 lbs heavier than I am now when I was just 13 years old and about 5 inches shorter. But look at me today :) I have learned a lot and I want to help everyone who struggles the way that I have. But that wasn't even the half of it, I gained 60-70 pounds every single time I got pregnant with my 4 beautiful babies! Wow did I ever have enough to work with there hey! With the first two I would say it took a few years to get back into shape... kind of. I still wasn't in as good of shape as I am today, because I didn't even have a clue at that time, in comparison to the knowledge I have now. Before I got pregnant with my third child at 32 years old I finally did it. I finally mastered My Diet! And... it was just before getting pregnant with my 4th child at 36 years old that I finally did it and mastered and put together what is today, Jelaine's Perfect Body Workout and Stretching From a Therapists Point of View videos.
I used to eat so clean that it gave me headaches.
I used wake up in the middle of the night just so I could fit in 4 hours of working out that day. Waking up before the crack of dawn just to get that workout in, hours and hours before the babies even woke up, as well as pushing a tandem stroller down the gravel roads for 7 miles every day with my children's combined weight of 100 lbs, and I still didn’t look as good as I do today! And by only doing about an hour workout every second day, if that some times. Of course I still walk and dance and play and get outside because I enjoy these things. I CHOOSE to live a healthy lifestyle. However just with my knowledge of our diets and the human body, I wouldn't even need to workout to achieve my desired weight… my weight now just comes naturally and I actually have to be careful that I don't get too thin, as I truly am a Self Made Freak of Nature!
My body is functioning at such an optimal level now, that my metabolism is like supercharged!
And I don't even have enough room on this page to discuss the overall health benefits, from getting your body to the point where you are at this optimal, stabilized state of being! And most of all, I still eat and drink all the things that I love!! Who doesn't want that?
I not only have worked with thousands of people over the last 25 years, all with their own individual set of physical, mental and emotional pains, struggles and traumas. As well as their own set of dreams and business ideas, completely different from the next person. I've also had more than my own fair share of life struggles as well that I have needed to overcome. But it never seems to end either. It's all in what you do with it! I never wanted anyone to steal my smile! To rain on my parade! Or any other negative aspect for that matter! I just kept that smile on my face and pushed through to the next level, no matter how painful or difficult life has been at times. I truly am a Stubborn Ass! But... now that I have learned all of this and been through all of this, welcome to my Mastering The Weight Program. I'm here to help and heal as many people as I can! So look out :) All you nay sayers... just get out of my way! Get out of everyone else's way! You can thank me later for being such a Stubborn Ass and for not stopping until I won!! For not stopping until I can help all of the other people I see struggling win too! I didn't go through all of this and have all of this experience for no reason people. This is my destiny. This is who I am. This is where I'm meant to be. I am a Healer!! With a very strong business mind in all things financial. Yes math was my favorite subject! And writing of course! I am a published author now :)
With a couple more projects on the go. If you find one answer with me or all the answers, I do guarantee that they are extremely valuable, and it takes looking at all aspects of a persons life on a individual basis to Master The Weight. To be able to even know where to start with helping and healing people. A lot of the beliefs that I held 25 years ago about what it takes to Master The Weight, the same things I see 99% of the rest of the population still believing today. Time to change the world wouldn't you say? And wouldn't it be perfect to start with our children now? Save them from all the heartache and struggles that they don't need to ever face simply due to lack of knowledge!
Hey guys... and this is the cute chubby me with no clue where to begin, which was still 10 years into my journey at this point! It wasn't until I quit listening to everyone else's bullshit ideas about life, and diet and exercise, that are completely based on ignorance, that I finally did it! My knowledge of the human body is rather extensive and with all that and all the years of putting it all together in the perfect placement. I just can't now know all this and be so thrilled living my perfect self in my perfect life and watching other people struggle. Things are already tough enough, there's no need for anything at all in our lives, to be tougher!
:) I was still me, just cuddlier!
