Meet Helen M. Ryan
Walking and Talking with Helen is an unscripted coached walk podcast created to help motivate you to keep walking, moving, growing - and creating new habits.
I’m the author of the books 21 Days to Change Your Body, the 21 Days Pocket Guide, and the upcoming Mad Musings of a Dieter. I'm also an entrepreneur (running a digital marketing studio) and a chocolate-loving lifestyle coach.
My weight loss journey
Small steps, big results
After my father died from aggressive lung cancer, I started my accidental weight loss journey with walking. I ended up losing over 80 pounds in 10 months and have kept the weight off for 16 years.
Walking gave me strength. It inspired me to become a spinning instructor and a certified personal trainer. Walking helped me heal myself. Write my books. Start this podcast. It was the first step to regaining the self confidence I had lost.
Now I walk and talk with you, sharing what I’ve learned along the way. It's never to late to start living again, and becoming healthier.
