My husband and I have 4 awesome kids ages 4 to 12 and a 1200-acre farm. You can imagine that taking care of me could come LAST in that lineup if I let it. But I signed up for 8 to Your IdealWeight and it was everything I needed to take back control of my life and my eating. Now I’ve released 35 lbs. and get to share the emotional, mental and physical support my Ideals need to reach their goals. I’d love to be your coach and look forward to hearing from you!

Where your mind goes, your body follows.  I had tried (and failed) numerous exercise regimens and diets, but none of those programs got to the heart of my problem.  8 to Your IdealWeight has helped rid me of the emotional baggage that was weighing me down. I have released 25 lbs. and that’s a bonus to getting my hopes and dreams back on track. I’m a better ranch wife, mother, speech-therapist, and human being. Because of this process my husband and two children now get the best of me. Let me help you restore your energy and live the life you deserve. Email me at

I was so transformed a few weeks into the 8 to Your IdealWeight program, I added becoming an IdealWeight coach to my dream board. Now that dream has come true. To date I’ve released 35 pounds, have coached others to success, and feel fantastic. As the mother of three, a grandmother, and a track coach, I love my busy lifestyle. My passion is empowering women in the western plains where services are in short supply. I love seeing them make their dreams come true. Drop me an email so we can get started on making YOUR dream a reality:

Motivate the mind, the body will follow. I am a Certified Health and Wellness Coach and previous health club owner. Before this program, I spent (a very miserable) 10 months trying to lose weight for my wedding – and after the big day… I gained all the weight back! With 8 to Your IdealWeight, I released 15 pounds in 8 weeks – a number I never thought I could get back to, and am easily maintaining! I love the accountability this program offers and I’m excited to partner with those who want to reach their personal best. Email me and let’s get you started: 

Patty Stuever

I love being an 8 to Your IdealWeight Coach like I love my pets, helping teens, and the log cabin we bought 20 years ago. I’ve always considered myself pretty healthy, exercising almost daily. I began IdealWeight not to lose weight, but for healthier eating and living. Surprise! Using the 8 to Great process and the incredible support of my Coach and small group, I released 25 pounds!  When you’re ready to take back your power over food, end sugar cravings, and become the person you’ve always dreamt of email me at

Alice Packard

When I learned about 8 to Your IdealWeight  I was already familiar with the outstanding program of 8 to Great. After being sick and tired of being 25 lbs. overweight all these years, I thought what have I got to lose? Learning this process has taken me from stuck to FREE from the bondage of sugar, regret and guilt. Now I start each day with new hope, new ideas, and I’ve released all 25 lbs! I’d love to share this life-changing process with any woman wanting an easy-to-follow program to stay on (and enjoy) for a lifetime. When you’re ready to learn this powerful process, let me know.  I’d love to be your IdealWeight coach!

Linette Miller

I tried every diet out there, each time with renewed hope that THIS would be the one for me, only to have my dreams crushed. With each failed attempt I gained more weight until I was morbidly obese.  When I found 8 to Your IdealWeight I was desperate. I couldn’t take one more person telling me that I was lazy.  MK and my coach helped me “Get Real” with myself and taught me a process to release the internal baggage that  I was hiding behind. I’ve now released 40 pounds, am happier and more self confident, and have found my program for life! Join me as I continue my journey to releasing more than 100 pounds! Email me at

Karen Frazier Whittle

Working as an elementary principal and raising an active son have been the greatest joys in my life. Yet I found myself exhausted and grabbing food “on the run.” The result – 100 lbs. weight gain, high blood pressure, bad knees and lost confidence. Having 8 to Your IdealWeight back then would have saved me time, frustration, pain and money!  For two years I carried the last 20 stubborn pounds, yet in only 8 weeks, I’ve released the weight and so much more! Now I’ve become an 8 to Your IdealWeight and Wellness coach, so I can support your journey to positive change. Let me show you how to take back your power over sugar addiction, cravings, and body image issues. Email me and let’s get started:

Karen Dutton

After turning 60 I thought it was too late to ever feel slim and trim. To my delight, 8 to Your IdealWeight changed that belief, and got me dreaming again of all the possibilities before me. As a Montana rancher’s wife, our youngest just got married, and now it’s time for me. While releasing my extra weight and emotional baggage, I have more gratitude for today and hope for my future. I’d love to share the simplicity and ease of this Food-for-Life and Joy-for-Life program.  I promise you’ll discover a new appreciation for the beautiful person you are!
