I started working with Orna because I had reached a place where I had lost my motivation. I had left a 12 step program for food after 9 years. I felt defeated and discouraged. I was trying to accept the fact that maybe this was as good as it gets, and that I would have to find a way to live with these extra 20 pounds and never feel good about my body again. After searching the internet and coming across Orna’s page I thought that motivation from someone who could understand my struggles, was e…
Through her own personal struggles with weight, and self-awareness, Orna has learned not only how to positively and healthily manage her own body weight, cravings, and thoughts surrounding eating, food, and worthiness, she understands how to share and teach others to take control of their daily struggle as well.
I met Orna in 2006 at Weight Watchers. She was such a different leader than any one I had been to. Very real, inspiring, compassionate, motivating and really gets it from her own experience of the weight loss and body issues that can cause much suffering for many people—myself being one. Orna truly has a calling and expertise to help people on their own journey; not a battle, but bringing kindness and self compassion to one’s self. This is not always an easy task for me when it comes to navigati…
Orna Purkin lived her younger life overweight and very unhappy not being sure how to win over the scale. When she finally saw what could lead her to the results she was looking for, she went after it wholeheartedly and she won…She proves that anyone can not only lose weight but gain health as well.
In my opinion, Orna will impact and change your life, if you let her. She has practical solutions to weight loss issues and above all, she really cares about your success. She is honest, genuine and caring. She has been there and understands your weight challenges and struggles. I am grateful to have had her as a coach and as I continue my journey to a healthier and happier me, I will cherish the coaching and time we spent together
I just can’t thank you enough for all your support and kindness. Even during our darkest moments it is so refreshing to work with someone that is as caring and supportive as you.
I love Orna. If you follow her suggestions, you’ll have a life-changing experience. She’s the first food guru whose ideas make any sense to me, and they work. I can follow them in the house, at work, or in social situations without anyone noticing. If I eat, feel and look better, what else can I do better?
This fall I was extremely discouraged with weight gain after about 15 years of dieting on and off, and fighting what I was beginning to feel was an inevitable extra 20 pounds. I happened to find a recipe that lead me to Orna’s blog, and decided to pay for a four pack of coaching sessions with her. In just a month and a half Orna has helped me start to change my negative relationship with food and get off the diet rollercoaster. Instead of restricting foods, starving myself, falling off the …
